Flooding in Doral FL
Doral, a suburb of Miami, is just miles from the coast where Southern Florida and the Atlantic Ocean meet. Most of the year, this area is showered with sunshine and pleasant temperatures. However, as a coastal city, it experiences a high risk for hurricanes, which brings with it a high risk for flooding.
Not only is flooding a potential danger to the citizens of Doral, but it can cause damage to buildings, businesses, and vehicles that can’t be moved in time, too.
How Flood Damage Affects Your Car
Flooding doesn’t always damage your car. After all, vehicles are built to keep rain out. But when the flooding is severe enough, it can cause many kinds of issues in your vehicle.
Water can corrode the wiring in your vehicle and cause your electrical connections to short out. So, if you suspect your car may have flood damage, use caution when starting it. Flooding can also cause rusting on any metal surfaces in and on your car, including nuts and bolts which can then seize.
Lastly, when the carpet and upholstery become wet and stay saturated, they can grow mold and mildew. These seem relatively harmless compared to the other effects of flooding. But, left untreated, mold and mildew can have harmful effects on your health and cause nasty, lasting odors.
