Depends on the workshop. They can take out the carpet and clean the whole area along with the carpet. That will reduce chances of rust and carpet smell. If you are worry then better sell off the car before condition becomes apparent. My friend sold his car after it was stuck in flood. I would do that too because the longer you keep the car the chances of issues will creep up. It's a risk you need to consider.

rust most likely not if manage to dry all the water.... Odor problem also no if you manage to dry the carpet and cushions completely
Because yours is rain water and not flood water/longkang/sungai (dirty water)

From my experience way back 20+ years ago, I work as cleaner for a used car dealer, we usually remove the whole car fabrications, seats and carpet (not just the floor mat) to wash, last time cars won't be so complicated, we removed continental cars as well, and we can fabricate it nicely, very clean and odorless.
My advise is to remove the main carpet, I can tell you if the carpet is wet, it's very hard to make it dry entirely even we leave the car under the extreme hot sun for few days, because the carpet has several layers, the stubborn internal will not expose to sun at all, therefore if the water is absorbed, you have to remove and reverse it from car then put under sun light for at least a day.
If the wet part is at driver's part, at least remove that seat, pull up and reverse the carpet, leave it under hot sun, then it will effectively dry up all water.
Thanks for the replies guys. Just got my car back. There is a very slight odor now.
