Re: Water Damage by Hurricane Alex
Good info, Tank you LoL...Yea it got taken care of on like the 2nd or 3rd day i believe, the guy I took it to has his own shop so hopefully he knew what he was doing and its been almost a month with no bad odor or damp carpeting. He did remove the seats to replace 100% of the carpet and checked out the motors and electrical stuff under the seats and everything was in working condition. I was also surprised to find out that the OEM infinity Amp for the speakers wasent damaged either Good for me I think the guy owed my dad a favor but im glad it got taken care of.

If you acted within 2 days of the damage there will be no mold.
What you need to do is remove the seats and all the lower trim.
100% remove the carpet. Dry the floor and clean it like sated above. Unplug any connection and make sure they are dry and re pack plugs with dielectric grease.
Go back to the carpet. There will be a multi colored pad glued to the bottom. Its called JUTE. You must remove all of this and dispose of it. IT WILL NEVER DRY IT WILL MOLD.
Clean the carpet with a mild soap and water mix and i generally use a pressure washer on a medium to light setting. let dry.
Once removed you can get new jute at any upholstery shop or in the carpet section of home depot. Buy enough to replace everything you removed. Once the carpet is clean and dry flip the carpet upside down and using 3m adhesive glue on new jute.
Or you can find auto upholstery shops that can buy you a 100% new carpet or a salvage yard or online store that sells FACTORY MOLDED Carpet.
