Water Main Leaks
Common leaks in commercial buildings are within the walls. A commercial building may experience a leak, such as damaged roofs, open drains, pipes, hvac units, gas lines, non-functional drainage systems, or even damaged waterproof layers that damage underlying insulation. Water damage left untreated can create issues like mold, the disintegration of your building’s structure, respiratory problems, flooding, and insurance issues if you have held off on repairs for too long.

Slab leaks are very common in older homes. The older your house is, the longer it has dealt with environmental changes like soil erosion, streams, or earthquakes. Older homes commonly have more aged copper or galvanized steel pipes that will have eroded over time. Shifting soil, chemical reactions, poor construction, and faulty installation are other issues with slab leaks. Newer homes are not safe from slab leaks, however. Check any concrete or asphalt slabs that make up the foundation, sidewalks, driveways, porches, or roads near your new or old home for slab leaks.
