    The brakes won't stop the car when it has been raining? That sounds like an emergency situation.

    Water does have a significant impact of braking performance, but is usually dispersed very quickly when you use the brakes.
    How are the brakes getting so wet? Are you driving through deep water regularly?

    Wet carpets inside the car can be caused by various issues like blocked drains at bottom of windscreen, or poor/damaged door seals, blocked drains in bottom of doors.

    By "jumping", do you mean the brakes are juddering under soft application?

    As others have said - how are the brakes getting so wet? As in soaked? Are you driving through deep water? If so, that would also explain any damp within the car as well depending on how deep the water is.

    That sounds like there's air trapped in the hydraulic system.

    Regarding the wet carpets check the pollen filter if it is wet there is a good chance your AC drain is blocked.

    Location of the drain hose. maxresdefault.

    Check the bottom of the windscreen - and clear all the leaves and debris from all along the width of the car. CHeck under the bonnet as well and clean all around the bulkhead at base of the screen. If that does stop it then the drain maybe blocked so you will need to find the drain and clear it. You will need to find the drains. You will need a car manual to give you the information you need.

    From what you describe this sound like the brake system need to go a garage and have the brakes bled all round to release air in the system, it would make sense to renew the brake fluid at the same time.

    Have you checked the brakes? Are the discs and pads in good condition? If not then you will need to replace them.

    Running the A/C all the time will help dry out carpets, but if they are really wet you will need to remove them and let them dry out.

    good luck
