Stains on carpet from wet cardboard

Hi guys,

I've realised that this is more a professional forum for those that work in the cleaning industry. I'm just a person with a question: there's been a slow leak somewhere in my laundry, and it wet part of the wall and carpet in the adjoining bedroom. I had some cardboard boxes next door and didn't notice until later. Now there's some brownish stains (with a bit of black) on the carpet in the bedroom. Any suggestions as to how I can at least lessen the effect? The carpet is a weird light speckly tan/brown/beige not-sure-how-to-describe-it colour to begin with. The landlord pretty much never fixes anything until it's an emergency (e.g. blocked toilet, leak from bathroom above). Then again, my rent has been the same for the 5 years I've lived here, so that's a tradeoff I guess. My concern here is that I won't get my bond back when I leave.

Thanks for your help guys!

Use paper towels in order to cover up the damp area for long hours. Then use a steam iron. In case the stains do not go away completely, you should steam iron the area. However, you should be careful not to allow the water to hit your carpet.

Utilize report shower towels to be able to hide the moist place pertaining to long hours. Subsequently work with a vapor iron. In case the staining don't go away completely fully, you need to vapor iron the area. Nevertheless, you need to be careful not to allow the mineral water to hit your own carpeting.
