It may not be dry and your getting mold place a fan near the area let it blow across also you can use an elec. heater set on low after it feels dry pour some baking soda on the spot just before bed time. let it sit overnight in the morn scrape up what you can then vac. you may need to do this a few times the pad holds a lot of water even if the carpet feels dry kneel on the spot and see if your knees get wet.

I flooded my sump and spilled several gallons into the carpet, I had to use a carpet shampooer to suck up all the water.

Also left a fan blowing on the carpet for a couple days.
