Can I hold landlord responsible to replace carpeting that got wet when apt flooded due to rain?

Asked about 1 year ago - Glen Ellyn, IL

During a bad rain, my apt got water in it. The carpeting was soaked. The landlord attempted to remove the water. The carpeting is still wet in areas five days after flooding. I am concerned about mold growth. Also, part of the water was sewer. What can I do?
