Slab Leak Causes Water Damage
SERVPRO of San Diego Bay SW/Coronado responded to a call from a homeowner in Carlsbad that suspected he had a slab leak.
The homeowner was referred to us by his Farmers Insurance Agent. The first step in the process is to provide a free inspection to see the extent of the water damage. This home was a little different in that the flooring throughout the home was concrete.
Luckily we have a Tramex CME 4 moisture meter, that is a handheld electronic moisture meter used for testing moisture conditions in concrete and other floor slabs and screeds. A low frequency electronic signal is transmitted into the material under test via the electrodes in the base of the instrument.
Once the insurance claim was filed and approved with Farmers, SERVPRO of San Diego Bay SW/Coronado was able to dry out the home within 72 hours.
