Re: Bleach spilled in back carpet
On a side note, should I be concerned about the metal under the carpets? I am considering cutting the carpet out and cleaning really well underneath before dropping the truck off at the dealer since I seriously doubt they will clean under them.
You should be very concerned about the metal. While I don't know the acidic properties of the bleach, you can be assured that the paint/primer coat of the metal has been breached. It will take quite a bit of cleaning (including lots of fresh water) to remove all of the bleach residue. Without proper treatment, this area is likely to corrode very quickly. This could be further exacerbated if you live in an area where other contaminants such as road salt etc may be introduced into the area as well.
