Atlanta Area Water Slab and Plumbing Leaks - Water Leak Detection Blog - Orlando, Florida | Leak Doctor - sewerLeak-200x300Plumbing pipes running under the concrete foundation of your home or business are susceptible to leaking due to corrosion, the soil shifting, and a host of other reasons.

A slab leak can have a domino effect. Wearing away and eroding the ground under the building, weakening the foundation. Floors are typically affected in the beginning, with slanting and bulging. Then the slab itself cracks or even breaks, causing doors not being able to close correctly, and all sorts of problems with the walls and windows.

It also leaves a high amount of moisture in your home, allowing mold and mildew to thrive. Starting between walls and invading your home. Causing health problems for those living in the home.
