    How submerged was your vehicle?

    If only up to the carpets, you can just remove the seats and carpets to dry off the interior.

    Sometimes I use a hair dryer or heat gun to dry hard to reach areas.

    As for the muffler, just drive for a day or two, tanggal ang tubig niyan.

    After drying up your carpet, apply baking soda, leave overnight, thence vacuum para d mangamoy.

    i suggest that you wash your carpet and not just dry it. madaming germs na nagtatago na dyan dahil sa flood water. leptospirosis?

    kung lubog I would suggest that you remove your plugs and crank your engine. This is to remove water and prevent damage to the engine.

    binondo...how long does the carpet dry usually under the sun? my problem is that the weather is unpredictable,it rains w/o warning...if this happened during the summer time then i think alang problem..last time i experienced wet carpet was some months ago naiwan ata ng mekaniko na nakabukas yun bintana ko...so there you go...dunno how my carpet got dry but it tiook lots of time for it to totally dry out and more time for the smell to go away.
