When the washing machine runs over and the water goes up the hall about four feet and soaks the carpet, is it sufficient to just vacuum out the water then run a fan until it dries, or do I really need to pull it up to make sure it is really dry under there?

No wall damage and the carpet is over a slab, so I don't have to worry about that. Just concerned about mold or it starting to smell.
