You can take up the edge of the carpet at the wall baseboard. Its prolly on some nail-strips-just pull it loose enough to be able to direct the airflow from a portable fan between the carpet's padding and the subflooring. Use a few sprays of Lysol to kill any mold spores left after thourough drying. Replace carpet.
