Carpet odor removal baking soda

After my carpet was cleaned a foul Odor appeared. I PULLED UP THE CARPET and applied Natures Miracle Advanced Formula spray. after 6 hours when dried I lightly vacuumed. i then applied Arm&Hamer Pure Baking Soda to the padding and carpet . Two four pound boxes!, My question is would it be ok to leave some of the baking soda under the carpet ? (hardwood floors with vented crawl space on dirt if that helps? I vacuumed as good as I could before placing the carpet back then vaccumed a second and third..

Thank you happy holidays!!

well, if you vacuumed, it mostly shoyuld be sucked up, right? Then theres no problem. Otherwise, excess baking soda sitting on wood is not good. it IS a salt. Salt on wood can danage it over time. yes, baking soda is a salt......
