The best way to do this is to take a towel out of the washing machine when it’s still damp. Lay it over the flattened area and then gently run a warm (not hot) iron over it. Repeat until the carpet fibers pop back up again. The heat and damp will help reset the fibers, and you’ll end up with a nice fluffy carpet again.
