Both Radiator and carpets are used to keep us warm. Although carpet has many other uses than just keeping us warm. It helps to keep the house clean by removing the dirt from our feet. It gives a good resting spot for our pets and for us as well. Carpets are conveniently spread on the floor all around the house and is the victim of various spills. It is very hard to dry a carpet when it gets wet. If the wetness is because of the radiator then it will keep on being damp as long as the radiator is on. Carpets are inevitable during winters. Also, winter is the time when we need the radiators the most and also the carpets. Radiators shed water when they are overheated and apparently you cannot turn them off because you need to keep yourself warm. You cannot roll up your carpet too.
Things Needed for Radiator Water Removal

Methods to Remove Water from Carpet
Prevent The Water from Dripping: –Try getting the radiator fixed so that it does not leak. Mostly it will drip because of overuse. Try changing the spare parts. If that is not enough then if possible, shift the position of the carpet from being right under the radiator. Keep a bucket or a tub at the point where the water comes out or make an outlet for it.
Drying The Water: –Use a hairdryer to dry the water. Vacuum over it once if necessary and then blow the area with full heat mode on a hairdryer.
If hair dryer does not work then iron over it. Keep a cloth on the carpet, preferably thin cotton and iron over it. This should dry the carpet partially and blow air from a hairdryer to completely dry it.
Cleaning The Wet Area: –Water from radiator usually leaves stains. It can be treated with soap and water first like that in any stain. So, try using regular soap solution or soap and water. Use an old toothbrush or an old cloth. Dip it in soap water and then just brush over the carpet. After going over it with soap water, go over once again with normal water to rinse. Dry it with a hair dryer or iron over it.
Vinegar: –Vinegar is a mild cleansing agent, a mild stain remover and a mild acid. So overall vinegar is multipurpose and is available in any local market. Actually, it is necessary to have a bottle of vinegar at every household at all times. To deal with water stains and dampness because of a radiator on a carpet, use vinegar to get rid of most of the foul smell and stain. Mix one part of vinegar with two parts of water and rub over the affected or damp area and clean it with the soap solution and then dry it with a hairdryer or with iron box.
