The foundation of a building has to be strong. If the foundation is weak, then the entire building will be weak. When the water pipes below your building’s foundation leak, those are called “slab leaks.” They can lead to a series of problems for your building as well as anyone inside it. If it’s your home, then you want to call in the professionals to keep your family safe and protected. There’s where USA Restoration can come in. Our professionals are always available to come in and fix these leaks.

How to Tell if There’s a Leak
When a slab leak occurs, it may not be immediately noticeable. However, these leaks can manifest themselves in a variety of ways. You could have a slab leak if you suddenly notice a significant decrease in your water pressure, or an increase in your water bills that seemingly comes out of nowhere. If you notice hard flooring that seems warped, carpets that are damp or even pools of water in your building where there were none before, then you may have a slab leak. Should you notice any of these, then you want to contact USA Restoration as soon as possible.
Leaks and Insurance
Dealing with insurance companies is rarely a pleasant experience. Difficult and time-consuming, you often have to talk to them when something’s gone wrong, which makes everything that much harder. Here’s a fact not many insurance companies will tell you: when you find a leak in your slab, it’s covered by insurance. These leaks are 100% covered by insurance. We’ve found that this is a tremendous relief to our clients. Instead of worrying about how they’re going to pay to fix these leaks, or where they can find it in their budget, they can just trust our USA Restoration experts to get the job done.
Often, with water damage that results in these leaks, it’s an involved job indeed. Typically, we have to open up and even redo the walls in addition to taking out all of the flooring. This is the not the kind of thing that someone wants to have to pay for. Here at USA Restoration, we do all of this work with one end goal in mind: returning your building to its pre-loss condition. That means that we make it seem as if your home or other kind of building suffered no ill effects from water damage whatsoever. We aim to turn “water damage” into an anecdote, something that people who come to your place won’t even realize occurred.
When it comes to insurance companies, we have plenty of experience here at USA Restoration. We know that not everyone wants to have to deal with the insurance company, particularly in the wake of water damage. That’s why we’re there to guide. When you bring us in, we’re with you every step of the way. We’ve seen what insurance companies try to get away with. We know what works and what doesn’t. So, by being by your side, we can help guide you through the tricky conversations with the insurance company. We do this for the same reason we restore your building: to return everything to a pre-loss condition.
Mold and More
One of the worst signs of slab leaks is if you see or even smell mildew or mold. This can make an unsafe situation for your family, employees or anyone else in the building worse. What makes mold even worse is that, almost invariably (and unlike the leaks mentioned above) mold isn’t covered by insurance. So that means you could be on the hook financially for all the costs related to repairing the leak. That’s making a bad situation worse. This makes it all the more important to contact the professionals here at USA Restoration. We can come in and solve your problems so that you don’t have to pay exorbitant fees.
The problem with mold is that it can develop rather quickly. On average, moisture and mold develops within 24 to 48 hours of a slab leak. When it comes to your home or other kind of building, that’s a very brief period of time. This is why it’s so necessary to get someone out from USA Restoration to your place quickly. Our service is 24/7/365 so that we can be there when you need us. So, by having us come out quickly, we can get rid of any potential mold before it becomes a more significant problem.
Very few of us go and check their pipes daily. Many have a feeling that if water damage strikes, it will be something they notice immediately. They may believe that they’ll notice rushing water, flooding and the like. Those are indeed signs of water damage, but they aren’t the only ones. Often, the signs are subtle, which can make them easy to miss. For example, one very common kind of water damage is seeing water buildup in crawl spaces, basements, attics and areas like that. If you see that begin to occur, you absolutely want to contact someone from USA Restoration right away.
On top of that, we typically find there are many water damage issues in the area after a storm. For example, as of this writing, a storm has been forecasted for the weekend. That means that many buildings will be damaged by water. It’s important to note that when we say “buildings,” we mean multiple kinds of buildings. We don’t just mean homes. Indeed, we have several residential as well as commercial clients, too. We’ve helped so many offices, stores, dealerships and other kinds of commercial locations to recover completely after the buildings have been damaged by water.
Sometimes, even your appliances can cause water damage. It may sound counterintuitive, but hot water tanks and washing machines can be the causes of water damage. As they age and begin to break down, they can leak. Additionally, sometimes their pipes crack and begin to rust. Combine that with weakened hoses, and you have one of the most common causes of water damage. We can help to restore your home to its best should one of your appliances lead to water damage.
From the moment you call us, our professionals can be out there quickly. Indeed, we’re always available, so that we can be there for you in an emergency. We quickly ascertain what the problem is, and then put together a plan to fix it. Estimates are always accurate and free here at USA Restoration. That way, we can help with your home as well as your peace of mind. From there, our trained technicians get to work, making sure that your building incurs no further damage while fixing the problem.
When your slab begins to leak, or a storm or flood has left your home or commercial property with plenty of water damage, it’s natural to feel like things can’t return to normal. However, when you bring in our pros from USA Restoration, we can return your home to its normal pre-loss condition quickly. Just give us a call at: (800) 805-0541.
