You may have a hidden leak in your plumbing if:
- You notice water stains on your floors, walls, or ceilings.
- You see or smell mold.
- You hear a dripping noise or constantly running water behind a wall.
- You notice a puddle underneath your sink.
- Your water bill is unusually high.

Emergency Pipe Leak Detection & Repair in DC, MD & Northern VA
When you have a pipe leak or burst pipe, you need experienced plumbers to handle the repair. United Air Temp’s team can perform a video pipe inspection to find the source of the leak.
We’ll cut out the damaged section of the pipe and replace it or use a pipe repair clamp that can seal the leak and prevent future issues.
In most cases, water lines are located beneath the concrete foundation of homes, so if you have a water supply leak, you will likely need slab leak detection and repair.
Slab leaks can be caused by:
- Poor pipe installation
- External pressure from soil erosion
- Pipe corrosion
- Alkaline or acidic water
- Wear and tear over time
If you notice water stains on your floors, you must act quickly to minimize damage to your foundation and property. Our team can locate the leak and access and repair the piping quickly.

Frequently Asked Questions About Pipe Leaks
What should I do if my pipes are leaking?
If your pipes are leaking:
- Shut off the water supply
- Turn on all faucets to drain any remaining water
- Contact a plumber to find the leak and repair it
Can a leaky pipe burst?
Yes. Strong water pressure can continue to damage a pipe with a small leak. This can lead to a major break that will cause significantly more water damage.
How long does it take for a leak to cause water damage?
Water can quickly cause stains on your floors or ceilings in as little as a few hours.
After a few days of a water leak, you risk mold and mildew development.
Call a trusted plumber as soon as you notice the leak to prevent unnecessary water damage.
