Most modern properties are built upon a cement slab foundation since it is easy to construct, the cost is relatively low, and it offers unparalleled durability. However, plumbing lines such as water input lines, and sewer mains may be running through these slabs. With time, the embedded pipes may develop leaks and cracks that can cause devastating damage to your Seminole property.

Can I do anything before the restorers arrive?

Begin by stopping the water leak, such as by turning off the water main to your property and attempting to remove the water using a wet/dry vacuum. Our SERVPRO crew can help you perform water restoration in your Seminole residence by drying the affected areas thoroughly, disinfecting them, and removing odors. Our team is available 24 hours a day to respond to our customer's emergencies. Since we understand how devastating the situation can turn out, we take the shortest period possible to get to our customers' property.

What are some of the signs of a slab leak?

Slow leaks can go for an extended period without being detected. The changes can also be so incremental and go unnoticed. If you notice any of these signs, chances are you have a slab leak.

  • Cracks on your foundation
  • A foul smell on floors or walls
  • High water bills
  • Uneven growth in foundation plants or lawn
  • Damp or discolored floor coverings

If you have one or more symptoms mentioned above, hire a reputable plumber immediately and a licensed restoration expert to prevent further damage in your property.

How do you identify areas with highly concentrated moisture?

At SERVPRO, we have up-to-date equipment and tools that effectively conduct water cleanup and restoration. Our technicians can use infrared cameras during the inspection process to determine where moisture is highly concentrated. The results provided by the equipment helps our team to determine the most suitable restoration strategies to use.

It is also essential to determine if the water is contaminated. We can use a luminometer to test surfaces and water for organic contamination. The equipment helps us determine the right disinfecting product to use on the affected area.

How do you dry floors?

To prevent mold growth, fast and efficient drying is required. We can use a portable electric heater to direct heat on a specific area. The machine uses heat exchangers to transfer heat from hot coils to air streams produced by air movers. For effective results when using this equipment, we focus our drying on the affected surface only. The machine can dry your floor in a brief period.
