Wet carpet in the bedroom?

My water pipe was leaking in the laundry room. it flooded my carpet in the bedroom as well, I unsealed the carpet and cut off 1/2 of the padding under the carpet because it was wet. Do I buy only the damaged padding or do I buy an entire padding for the bedroom so I'll remove another padding as well. Thx

You can replace only what was wet. Cut a straight a line as possible. Not sure if you can buy pad by the foot or not, check around. Take a piece with you to make sure it is the same density and weight. Install, tack it down with staples and use wide masking tape to secure it to the adjacent old pad. Then kick or stretch your carpet back into place.
