A woman has placed a bucket underneath her sink to prevent a broken pipe from flooding her floor. We respond to water damage emergencies 365 days a year in San Diego County.

Our San Diego City, South West team has been restoring water damage for Hillcrest residents for many years. Leaking pipes are one of the leading causes of water damage in homes in the United States. Our technicians are trained and certified by the Institute for Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC), the nonprofit certifying body for the cleaning and restoration industry.

Leaking or Broken Pipes

A leaking pipe can be visible, or it may be hidden from view inside a wall or underneath a concrete slab. One way to tell if you have water damage is to look at your water bill. If you see a significant spike in water usage for no apparent reason, you may have a hidden water leak in your plumbing system. The Environmental Protection Agency suggests checking your water meter before and after a two-hour period when no water is being used. If the meter does not read exactly the same, you probably have a water leak.
