A home in Largo suffered a plumbing pipe leak underneath the concrete slab after a nearby lightning strike. A plumbing water leak underneath the concrete foundation of homes in and around Largo are known as slab leaks. We used our ultrasonic equipment to locate where the leak was located underneath the concrete slab. As you can see in the pictures below, a very small hole was made in order to repair the leaking plumbing pipe. This Largo home has laminate wood flooring installed over old terrazzo floors. With our infrared leak inspection equipment, we were able to show the homeowners how far the water had traveled underneath the laminate wood flooring. Water damage can lead to problems if not dried out quickly. One of the biggest concern of homes in the Tampa, Clearwater and St. Petersburg area when it comes to moisture and high humidity in homes is mold growth. Mold grows on wet building materials and doesn’t take very much moisture in order to form a colony.
