My DD12 was home alone when the toilet overflowed. The room next to the bathroom is carpeted, and although she did a great job mopping up on the bathroom floor........the carpet was soaked when I got home. I soaked up as much as I could with towel after towel after towel. But still, if I put a towel down now and press on it, I'll get more water! I can't pull the carpet up.....it is glued down tight. I put the dehumidifier and a fan next to the spill. I just think that there's no way this won't end up ruining my kitchen ceiling, right?
