Crawl Space Water Damage
A crawl space is an area under a xenia home. They are typically 1 to 3 feet high located between the ground and the home's first floor. The disadvantage of a crawl space is that they can harbor moisture, especially when a pipe bursts. When water damage from a pipe burst goes unnoticed, you can expect there to be a mold issue as well.
A leak or water usage change most often results in a high Xenia water bill payment. The most common causes of high Xenia water bills include the following.
