Slab leak detection requires the work of a highly specialized technician. A concrete foundation is prone to damage from many different causes. Corrosive chemicals in the soil around your home or business, pressure from shifting ground materials, and vibration can lead to cracks that trigger foundation leaks. Incorrect pipe installation can cause a leak in your foundation as well. Human error, from a construction project at your home or nearby, can too, but fortunately, Detour Plumbing is an expert in home foundation leak repair.
We understand how stressful this situation can be. But it can be fixed.
What Are Slab Leaks?
In general, these are leaks that occur below a building’s foundation. Flooding can take place well below the concrete and surface materials you stand on. It’s therefore possible for a leak to go on without any clear signs of a problem at your home or business. During that time, the leak can case severe damage. It can wreck lawns and cause cascading effects on your piping system. Hidden flooding can also create a hidden haven for mold and mildew growth and bacteria.
Common Problems and Signs of Slab Leak
Most plumbing problems are easy to spot. Slow drains, running toilets, wet spots on walls, and visible pooling of water can prompt you to call a plumber. A water leak below your foundation is different. Here are some of the signs you may need slab leak repair.
- Increasing water bill: If the monthly water bill goes up dramatically, and rapidly, and your usage is the same, a slab leak is possible.
- Hot or cold floors: Certain spots may be unusually hot or cold, which can be due to a water/sewer leak under your home, transferring the temperature of the leak to localized areas.
- Running water sounds: The water is off; yet it sounds like there is water running in your home that cannot be controlled.
- Mold growth: Mold and mildew appear suddenly and begin to grow, without an obvious cause, which can lead to air quality and health problems.
- Visible damage: Cracks along walls or floors can be caused by stress on your foundation slab and can signal that even more serious property damage is imminent.
