A leak in a slab foundation can cause numerous problems such as cracks in the slab and movement of the earth. That, in turn, can cause the slab to move enough that the house will begin to show cracks in the walls, around the doors and windows, as well as the outside of the house. Cracks where the walls join the ceiling will be another indication of a slab leak problem. You may also see wet baseboards and hot spots on the slab.
You will likely also notice wet spots in the carpet or the tile grout. This indication or any of the above should prompt you to call the technicians at Slab Leak Palm Desert CA.

For example, is it just a pin hole or is it a larger leak.
If the leak is small enough, an experienced plumber can repair it with a special epoxy which require drilling two small holes in the floor where the leak begins and ends. Jack hammering up the floor is ill-advised because it makes a mess and the floor is likely not going to be the same. Slab Leak Palm Desert CA is experienced in this process.
