As a resident of Florida, you undoubtedly have heard stories and have seen news reports about sinkholes affecting area homes and businesses. While the most commonly thought of natural disaster that area residents think about relates to hurricanes and tropical storms, sinkholes are relatively common in the Florida. This is because unique conditions are in place that lead to sinkholes. Underneath the soil throughout much of the state, porous limestone can be found. This limestone can be eroded over time by acidic water that is also common in Florida. The result is that crevices in the bedrock are created that ultimately cave in or sink. When the ground below the surface caves in, all of the ground soil and structures on the surface also cave in. In some cases, whole homes have been swallowed by these sinkholes. However, in many cases, the homes can be saved with the professional services of a sinkhole or foundation repair company like Foundation Services of Central Florida.
There were almost 25,000 insurance claims between 2006 and 2010 in Florida that were related to Florida, and the majority of these were in ten Florida counties. Orange County ranks eighth on the list of counties most commonly affected by sinkholes, and this includes communities like Winter Park and Kissimmee. Some sinkholes may be relatively small in size, and the homes may be saved through the efforts of professional Orlando Florida sinkhole repair. A professional crew can inspect the home and the land to determine if the hole can be repaired and if the home can be saved.
