What Causes Water Damage?

Water damage can be caused by a variety of sources, including flooding and malfunctioning appliances

Natural Disasters & Floods

We don’t often experience flooding in San Diego – but with heavy rain seasons, we sometimes see disastrous floods in low elevation areas like our beachside communities and the Mission Valley area. It’s crucial to repair flood damage as soon as possible following a flood. When the restoration process is not started quickly, the likelihood of repair decreases. Certified Restoration responds within the hour to water damage emergencies in the San Diego area, and we work directly with your insurance company to save you the hassle.  

Plumbing Issues & Burst Pipes

Plumbing issues can happen to anyone, at any time! Whether it’s just a leaky pipe or a burst pipe, it’s important to address water damage quickly using a professional water damage restoration company. Our team of water damage experts is here to help identify the water damage source, clean-up, test for mold and prevent future issues.

Appliance Malfunction

Air-conditioners, refrigerators, dishwashers, and water heaters are all common offenders of water damage.  During the hottest months of the year, we love our air-conditioners in San Diego, but did you know your air-conditioner could be causing water damage in your home? Certified Restoration is here to help stop water damage quickly, and ensure that your home is back to its previous condition.  

Water Damage Resources

Causes, risks, and helpful tips

Dangers of Water Damage

If not handled properly, water damage can lead to costly repairs and even health issues

Unrepairable Objects

If water damage is not addressed quickly by a professional restoration company, treasured items like family photos and heirlooms may be severely damaged. Our expert technicians respond quickly and work efficiently to recover as much as possible to keep your belongings safe and undamaged.

Damage to Sensitive Objects

Hardwood flooring is especially susceptible to water damage and can be difficult, and sometimes impossible to repair when handled improperly or too late. Certified Restoration uses Injectidry, an industrial-grade technology that uses high-pressure suction to vacuum moisture and dampness from hardwood flooring. Once the moisture is pulled, the system pushes dry air into the crevices of the flooring to finalize the drying process. Our technicians also specialize in drying wet carpet and preventing mold growth in the affected areas.  


Mold growth can occur within hours of a water damage occurrence – and can lead to health issues and serious property damage without proper mold remediation. Our water damage technicians handle water restoration quickly and thoroughly finalizing the restoration process with advanced mold testing to ensure you and your family don’t have to worry about any additional water-related threats.

Flood vs. Water Damage

Know your insurance policy before an emergency - Homeowner's insurance doesn't always cover both.

Common Causes of Flooding in San Diego

Natural Sources
Heavy Rains
River Overflows

Common flooding that occurs in areas of San Diego like Mission Valley (San Diego River) & the Tijuana River Valley

Storm Surge

Common flooding in San Diego beach communities like Ocean Beach, Mission Beach, Pacific Beach, La Jolla, etc.

It is important to know what is included in your insurance policy before you need to make a claim. Water damage that is caused by normal wear and tear of your home or business is typically covered under your standard insurance policy. Cases of water damage where the primary cause is due to neglect are not typically covered by insurance. It is your responsibility to your insurance company to mitigate damage which includes preventative care and early remediation of any causes of water intrusion in your property.

Flooding due to natural causes is not normally covered by a standard insurance policy. Separate insurance is needed if you live or have a property in areas of San Diego that are susceptible to flooding. For more help understanding the difference between flooding & water damage and what is covered, contact your insurance agent or visit our blog post on Flooding versus Water Damage.

Common Causes Water Damage in San Diego

Damage Due to Long-Term Neglect

not likely covered by insurance due to culpability of damage.

Pipe Burst

Especially common for water damage in historic San Diego neighborhoods such as Hillcrest, Bankers Hill, Golden Hill and others that have properties that are old.

Roof Leak
Drain Overflows/Back Flows

Water damage that is associated with contaminated water (grey or black water) and will need sewage clean-up.
