How Can You Tell That A Home Or Building Needs A Slab Leak Repair?Slab leaks are very common in older homes or buildings since they use galvanized steel pipes or copper which are prone to corrosion. When the pipes deteriorate, it releases water and even sewage under the structure. Faulty installation of pipes is also one of the culprits. Another contributing factor to slab leaks is the natural shifting of soil, underground stream, and even earthquake. The pressure brought by these natural ground movements may cause the lines to break which leads to slab leaks. Since all of these happen underneath, it is very hard to identify a slab leak. However, there are signs to watch out for. The following signs can tell you that you need a slab leak repair.
- Warm spots or water stains on the floor.
- Foul odor from floors and walls.
- Cracks on floors, walls, and ceilings.
- Unusual water puddles around the house or building.
- Visible soil shifts around the structure.
- Uneven growth in lawn or foundation plants.
