What are slab leaks?
A slab leak is simply fancy terminology for a pipe leaking water underneath your concrete floor or foundation. While plumbing damage of any kind is never welcome, slab leaks add an additional challenge due to the nature of the concrete floor overlaying them – not least of all because they can sometimes go unnoticed until they become serious. Even if it is a slow leak, over time it is sure to worsen, and if untreated could cause expensive water damage in your home. Worse than this is the risk of mold growth, particularly underneath carpet, which can lead to grave health hazards if inhaled.
