It is possible for water to leak into your car in a number of ways. This includes broken seals around windows, the rubber around the windscreen, the door seal, membrane or weatherstrip, and even the heater or air conditioning. Sunroofs can also be a problem if the drain gets blocked. Locating and rectifying the source of your water leak is essential to preventing other problems.

Wet carpets

The most common sign that you have a water leak is a wet carpet. This can be a really unpleasant discovery, especially if the carpet is very squishy and waterlogged. People in the vehicle won't want to have their feet on the floor if they end up wet. The issue can also lead to worse problems, including mould and mildew. This can have an impact on the health and wellbeing of the driver and passengers. If the water leaks into the boot, it can damage any items you put here.

High humidity

Water leaking into your car can also cause high humidity, especially when the car warms up. This can make it very uncomfortable for passengers. Perhaps more importantly, it can damage the electrics. One common complication in cars with water leaks is computer failure.

Knowing about the issues above, you will want to deal with any leaks as soon as possible. Don't let the situation get worse and risk even more damage to the vehicle.

At New Again, we can help you find the source of the leaks if you are struggling to do so. In addition to handling the cause of the problem, we have the means to tackle mould and odours. We will dry your car off in the end as well and clean the interior, so it is in perfect condition.
