Many homeowners have never heard of or experienced a slab leak and aren't aware of what a serious issue this can be. In Florida, traditional homes are built on top of a concrete pad, which is called a foundation. The foundation keeps the home from slanting or sinking as the ground settles, which is especially important in the hot summer months. In a typical home construction, important pipes run underneath this foundation. Any damage to these pipes is known as a slab leak.
How Can You Tell If You Have a Slab Leak?
In many cases, homeowners know that something is wrong when a slab leak occurs, but they don't know what signs to look for. If you are constantly hearing the sound of running water when all of the faucets are turned off, notice wet flooring, smell mildew coming from your carpets, or have seen a large spike in your monthly water bill, you may have a slab leak.Schedule Your Service Today
