The most common source of water damage is leaking pipes. Older houses are more prone to this, since homes that are at least a few decades old have galvanized steel pipes that have over the years slowly rusted and corroded. The problem with pipe leaks is that it can sometimes be difficult to locate the exact location of the actual leak. Sometimes walls have to be torn down in order for the leak to be located and fixed.

The thing about leaks is that most of the time the smallest of leaks can cause the biggest of problems. Tiny droplets seeping out slowly but constantly that are undetected for months or even years can be enough to keep the area moist and dirty. This is the perfect breeding ground for molds and can easily lead to rotten wood floors and walls. In this case a certified plumber should be called to do the job of locating leaks and fixing the plumbing. Most water removal service companies in San Diego can take care of water remediation as well as plumbing problems in your home.
