While slab leaks are not the most common type of plumbing problem homeowners encounter, they have the potential to cause a great deal of damage. Because slab leaks occur under the slabs of your home, they can be difficult to detect. In fact, many homeowners have never even heard of a slab leak! However, the longer a slab leak goes undetected the more potential there is for damage.
Signs of a slab leak include:
- Moisture around baseboards
- Patches of mold
- Hotspots on the floor
- The sound of running water from under your house
- Swampy ground around the house
If you notice any of these signs in your home, call Doug Parks and Son Plumbing immediately to identify and repair the problem. Don’t let a slab leak sneak up on you!
