–Alicia W., Brooker, FL, Florida Chemical Grouting Project
Among the many different types of chemical grout, the one that might be used to remediate your specific soil problem will be based on the location, soil type, structural integrity and purpose (structural or water control). This soil stabilization process uses either polyurethane foam or solution grouts containing acrylamides, acrylates, sodium silicates and epoxies.
Structural chemical grouting transforms granular soil into sandstone-like masses by permeating the spaces between soil particles and binding them together. As the grout is injected under pressure, it solidifies and strengthens the soil layer, improving its load bearing capacity without restricting appropriate water flow through the soil.
On the other hand, water control chemical grouting is intended to stop water movement in granular soil or rock. Injection points are laid out in a grid pattern, with waterproof masses created at the injection points. These masses connect to form a barrier to fluid migration.
To lift and re-level slabs or foundations, often an expansive foam will be injected to fill the voids. Two inert chemicals are injected beneath the foundation, where their mixture causes expansion of the polyurethane foam and consolidation of the soils. This popular grouting method is fast (1 to 2 days), non-intrusive, with minimum disruption inside your home, and doesn’t require your family to relocate or even move furniture. It’s also environmentally friendly, with minimal dust or debris, and it does not pollute ground water.
