In most instances, carpet can be extracted and dried in 1 to 2 days. It may sometimes take longer to dry the sub-floor that the carpet is laid on though.
As most carpet is laid on concrete which itself is an absorbent material, the concrete has to dry as well to prevent further problems from leaving a dry product on a wet product. Also to take inconsideration is any other surface that may be wet or swollen like; walls and skirtings, cupboards and personal items.
