The water that is visible is in the back foot wheel area.

I assume that the water level made it above the center of the wheels? If so, you have wheel bearings, differential, and other components to consider in addition to your interior problems.

Electronic modules could be damaged, etc. If you want to quantify the damage and/or mold growth, take out the seats, console and carpet. Only then will you really be able to gauge the damage.
Bye bye, Bumblebee!
