Replacing Moldy Car Foam Padding

When a car has mold in it and is wet, the carpet padding often needs to be replaced. Once the padding gets wet it stays wet since the carpet blocks air from getting to the padding. Since the padding stays wet, it often becomes infested with mold. At this point it also becomes super smelly. This is when it can’t be remediated and needs to be replaced. We always inspect wet padding to determine if it needs to be replaced. The mold infested padding in the photo is common when a car gets wet and is not properly dried within a seven to ten days.
