Orlando Slab Leak; Should You Be Concerned?

Any type of plumbing leak can be dangerous and should be taken seriously.  Slab leaks can easily go unnoticed by the homeowner, since they are under all that concrete. Typically by the time the signs of a slab leak show up, warm floors, a higher than normal water bill, pooling water, warped floors, damp carpet, the sound of water constantly running, a musty odor, or a decrease in water pressure, the is probably significant damage. 

Professional water leak detection is the best way to find the source of any type of leak without cutting into flooring or walls. This drastically reduces repair costs!

At the first sign of a problem, contact the Leak Doctor. Knowing exactly where the leak is located and repairing it, is always the best way to go. If left undetected, the damage can quickly multiply. But with advanced technology the source of a water leak can be detected without any disruption to your home. 

How does a slab leak cause so much damage?

A concrete slab is no match for a water leak. All that water creates enough pressure to shift a home’s foundation. This can be seen in cracks, usually near the base, but they can show up in the walls and ceiling. 

Health issues that can be very dangerous

More than physical damage throughout the home, a slab leak can also be detrimental to  the health of you and your family. With our heat and humidity, mold grows quickly. Which can cause dangerous respiratory infections, coughing, wheezing, headaches, and make asthma worse. 

Home inspection

The small cost to have your home inspected is decently worth it.
