Water leaks, rain, sunroofs, and mold, a bad combination.

With all the recent rain we have had in Richmond VA it has brought some unwanted guests such as water leaks and mold/mildew. RVA Glass has gotten several calls for leaking windshields. Most of the time, the windshield is not to blame unfortunately. Water leaks like this one are from the sunroof’s drain holes being clogged. It is important to do some diagnostics before you assume your windshield needs replacing. Otherwise you could have a new windshield and the same leak. If you discover your vehicle has water inside, the first thing to do is get the water out. Use a shop vac to suck out the majority of water. Placing a dehumidifier in the vehicle and running it will help remove water and prevent mold. If you do not have a dehumidifier be sure to run the air conditioning in your vehicle for a couple of hours to help pull out the moisture. Be careful using bleach to kill mold as it will bleach stain fabrics and carpet. If you have a water leak in your vehicle call RVA Glass LLC for sunroof repair or replacement.
