How do I get the smell out of this recently flooded carpet?

The carpet in our apartment has been partially flooded about five times over the past six months or so. Each time it has been dried out with fans & dehumidifiers. Most recently, it was professionally shampooed & cleaned. Unfortunately, the smell of mildew remains. Is there an effective way to get rid of this smell short of actually replacing the carpet?
It's wall-to-wall carpeting on a concrete slab. Not sure if there's a pad or previous carpet beneath it. It is dry to the touch.
Bonus points for organic methods!
