The other possibility would be the HVAC drain on the firewall is clogged. The A/C evaporator within the HVAC behind the dash has a drain that exits through the firewall. This allows any condensation from the evaporator to drip down and exit the interior and drip onto the ground. You can use a pen or pencil to poke into the drain and unclog it. You'd need to access it from under the car.

Here' a video >> and a photo of the drain location.

This post may be helpful too >>Passenger side floor is wet ...what should I look for?

well it only happens when it rains so i am more inclined to think it is the foam thing
