What Can Happen If A Slab Leak Goes Untreated

One of the biggest problems a homeowner can face is a problem with their foundation. Not only are foundation problems expensive to repair, but they can also put you and your family in danger if they go unnoticed and unfixed. Slab leaks are no exception, so it’s important to know what danger an unnoticed slab leak poses.

What is a Slab Leak?

A slab leak occurs when a pipe in the slab foundation of a home leaks as a result of wear and tear. The cause is often something unpreventable, such as foundation shifting, but hard water, high water pressure and more can be the cause of the leak. Once a slab leak occurs, it will leak water into the foundation, either slowly over time or all at once.

Why Slab Leaks are Dangerous

In most situations, a water leak in concrete slabs slowly releases water over time, allowing dangerous damage to occur without detection.

Mold Growth

While a little bit of water might sound harmless, it doesn’t take very much for mold to thrive. When mold spreads unseen in a home, the people inside breathe it in and run the risk of serious respiratory issues.

Structural Damage

A slab leak can also affect the structural integrity of your home, slowly rotting the supporting structure. It can also cause cracking and other damage to the slab, which is already prone to shifting and buckling without leaks.

They Cause More Problems

A slab leak that’s left alone will also cause water damage to your floors, walls and the things inside your home. Damage that causes more damage will hurt both your home and your wallet.

Slab Leak Detection

Although hiring a professional is the only way to pinpoint a leak, you are the best water leak detector for your home. Be aware of your surroundings, and call a plumber immediately if you notice any of the following signs of a slab leak.

  • Wet or warped flooring and carpets
  • Decreased water pressure
  • Higher water bills
  • Mold and mildew smell
  • Cracking foundation around walls and floors

A slab leak is no small thing, and it can cause more damage if left alone. Contact Parker & Sons Plumbing immediately if you think you have a slab leak, and our experts will ensure that the problem is fixed quickly and correctly.

I recently had several plumbing leaks repaired and couldn’t be happier with the prompt service I received from Parker and Sons. They are very knowledgeable, friendly, reasonably priced, and do quality work. I would definitely recommend them to my family and everyone. I would trust them to repair any leak in the house.

Amazing Service!!!

Amazing service!!! Called and came the same day within 2 hrs. Our toilet had to be re-fitted and snaked. They did a beautiful job on the re-fitting and got the large piece of plastic out of the toilet. Will definitely be recommending them to friends and family. Great service, great people, hard to find these days!!!

Shakira C.

Excellent Service! We had some work done on our kitchen and Parker and Sons were able to come out to our house and help us with our remodel. Great guys and great service. I would recommend them to anyone needing a plumber service.

Great to Work With

Jim and his guys are great to work with. Had Parker & Sons come out to take a look at an AC unit at one of my rental properties. Unit is in the attic. Had to replace a coil on it and did a great job. Will definitely use again.

Jeff C.

Amazing Staff!

I have referred Parker and Sons to all of my customers and I would not think of referring anybody else. They have been great and very punctual. All of the plumbers and office staff have been amazing!

Miguel B.

Reasonable Prices

I was in good hands today with journeyman plumber Mark Rizley. He remained until all was better than before. He replaced a PRV and improved a mediocre repair recently done by another well known local company. The price remained reasonable despite the extra effort needed for the job. Well done Mark! Parker and Sons will be my first call in the future.

Todd D.

Fantastic Company!

This is a fantastic company with outstanding professionalism, quality of work, and customer service. While their prices are extremely competitive, their work doesn’t feel cheap like some of the companies you can hire of off Craigslist or on a FB yard sale page. This is a reputable company with proven work and licensed, skilled technicians.

Fair Prices & Excellent Work

Have used Parker & Sons 3 different times, once for a huge complex plumbing repair and twice for smaller jobs. Fair prices and excellent work/fast response time every time.
