As you know, leaks can be costly with wasted water on one hand and the water damage on the other hand. Slab leaks are particularly risky because they occur underneath slabs on concrete in the building. These leaks are difficult to detect and the ensuing water damage can be catastrophic for your building’s infrastructure. Early detection is extremely important, and repairs should not be delayed. At Mr. Rooter Plumbing of New Jersey, we have plenty of experience dealing with slab leaks and we are here to share some warning signs that you can catch. Feel free to call Mr. Rooter Plumbing whenever you need emergency assistance or want to schedule a flexible appointment.
If the leak is a hot water leak, then you may notice persistently hot areas on your floors. Warm areas on the floor can be an indication of a hot water line under the slab that has busted or is leaking.
In addition to warm areas on the floor, pools of water and moisture on the floor can be an indication of a leak. This is a serious sign suggesting that the water leak is severe. You should act quickly because this shows that the situation is escalating and needs to be handled as soon as possible.
Toilets, Tubs, and Appliances Not Working
If your toilets, tubs, and appliances are not getting water, then there is a chance that the water line is broken. Identify the appliances that are faulty to get some help identifying where the leak might be, then look for other signs of a leak in the area. If this is the only indication that you have found, then eliminate other causes of faulty appliances first.
Mold and mildew thrive in wet environments. Leaks and water damage can breed fungi and other bacteria as well as mold and mildew which can create powerful and unpleasant odors. In fact, you will likely notice the foul smell before you notice the mold itself, so keep your eyes and nose peeled.
Cracking or Moving Foundation
Water is an astoundingly powerful element that can carve canyons let alone your building’s foundation. The water damage to the foundation of your home can manifest itself in the form of cracks in the floors and walls of your building. If you notice such signs, then consider them to be flashing, red warning signs asking you to arrange a slab leak repair as soon as possible. The more you wait, the more damage your building will face.
