General Question from Phil Cassen

Submitted on 11/12/2013

My interior windows were very wet most mornings and iced up in very cold nights. After inspecting the interior I noticed the passengers foot well carpet was soaked. I gave this info to a local garage and they did a water test and found the door seals on the paasenger door were not doing their job. After they were replaced I now can see the carpet is a lot drier but the build up of condensation continues . I assume this is because the material under the carpet is still wet. How do I solve this problem ? Woodford Green Essex Model: VW Urban Fox

Hi Phil

Thank you for your question,

The underlay will still hold a significant amount of water, you wont know how much until the carpet has been lifted.

We have seen many a wet interior over the years because of water ingress and it can be surprising how much water is extracted from underlays.

It will over time start to smell of stagnant water and mold may become apparent, if this happens it's not a healthy situation.
