Question Carpet stain from leaks

During our fall rains last summer/autumn , our unit developed leaks at two points. Both turned out to be at windows that had apparently shifted over the years and broke the caulk seals. Got them both corrected.
Now I have reddish brown stains that are hard and crusty to the touch on the beige carpet that I need to deal with.
What is the best way to deal with these problem areas? Given the way carpeting is installed in Monaco/ Safari products, what is the best way to check out the condition of the flooring underneath these stained areas? Once I check out the condition of the flooring, what is the best process for taking care of these stains? Are there questions beyond these that I need to ask a carpet service/mold remediation company?

If it was a first time leak there should be no damage beside the stain as long as it's drying out should be fine, the only way to check under the carpet is to take it up in that area, some carpets are down with the tack strips some with staples which are more common get it loose pull it back and inspect. It's good if you know some one who has some carpet tools so when it's put back down it can be tightened to prevent wrinkles

A good place to start with removing the stain would be Folex (white spray bottle) from Home Depot. A little less than $6.00. Folex only makes carpet cleaner solution and they have been around for a long time.

Some guests spilled RED wine on our carpet and couch. We used powered oxeclean and was shocked that it took out all the stains. my two cents good luck
