You got 48 hours to get the basement dry before mold grows and effects the rest of your home. Carpet should be wet vac'd. You should have 100 pints of dehumidification and 4 box fans per 1,000 square feet of wet area. A humidity meter to track the %RH is recommended. A basement should be kept below 50%RH to control dustmites and mold.
