Regarding wicking
Looking at it today may not be helpful... I think it will reveal itself in about 6-7 days.

I would assume today it will still be wet. (even if it's dry to the touch on the top)
If it is a rubber backing type....I guarantee you it's still wet.
How can a carpet wick if the top of the fibers are dry? I've been under the impression that if you can completely dry the upper portion of carpet fibers using adequate dry passes, air movers, etc... than the moisture remaining below that level will evaporate off as humidity and the emulsified soil will stay at that level as it slowly dries completely. Basically how can emulsified soil wick to the top of a fiber if that portion is already dry?

Wet seeks dry.. Evaporation.. Which is why it's called wicking.. If the bottom is impacted with soil, you'll always be fighting an uphill battle.. This is why VLM works well so as not to disrupt the deeper soil.. VLM is an interim cleaning method made for commercial carpets.. It is appearance cleaning..
