Car Water Leaks can cause a range of issues from steamed up and icy windows, to mould, bad odours and costly electrical problems. We have a range of methods for successfully detecting water leaks as well as having specialist processes and equipment to deal with decontamination, mould, and odours also drying your car.
Locating A Water Leak.
If you have water dripping on your shoulder from a leaky sunroof every time it rains then it's pretty obvious where your water leak is. But in the majority of cases you may suddenly find that your car begins to smell of stale water and your carpets are wet or damp with no obvious explanation or reason for the cause of the water leak.
If you are experiencing electrical problems in your car then this can also be a clear indication that water is leaking into the car.
Most cars will have just one water leak although in some cases there may be several water leaks in one area like around a windscreen for example. A small minority of cars possibly may have several water leaks and this is often the case with cars that have experienced body damage, a recent respray or older cars where rubbers and seals may have perished uniformly.
Sometimes it's not really possible to know that there are additional leaks until the first leaks are identified and fixed.
Fixing The Water Leak.
Most cars have guttering and drainage holes which channel rain rainwater away from the car although a build up of dirt and debris can sometimes cause water to pool and backwash into places it isn't supposed to go.
Often just cleaning and removing the dirt and debris from those hard-to-reach areas is enough to solve the problem and again in most cases the same can be said of a build-up of dirt on rubber seals.
In our experience when a sunroof or windscreen leaks it is usually because the rubber seals have perished or due to the fact that the sunroof has been incorrectly fitted or re-fitted. If we discover this to be the issue then we are affiliated to an established local windscreen company who can undertake the refitting or repair to your windscreen.
We have found that there are a multitude of other reasons why your car may have a water leak and we have the ideal faclities to fix them here at our HQ in Chelmsford.
