SINKHOLES & VOIDS

GIVE US A CALL TODAY FOR YOUR ESTIMATE

The process of sinkholes forming is when soil begins to erode. This is typical, especially when there is an abundance of soil that is easily soluble. Limestones and other dissolvable terrain areas are prime locations for sinkholes to occur in. The smaller sinkholes will be the most typical type and will range from about ten to twelve feet. Although they are smaller sinkholes, they are still big enough to engulf entire buildings, cars, roadways, etc.

These sinkholes and voids happen during times with an abundance of rain that get into the soil. The rainwater is collected from carbon dioxide. Due to the chain reaction, the vegetation will decay, making the water extremely acidic. The acidic water will then travel underground. Areas where the ground is easily soluble such as limestone, will dissolve. Then voids will be left where the ground was previously. As a result, the platform that is over the void will collapse and result in a sinkhole. There are contributing factors made by humans that play into the creation of the sinkhole. For example, an overload of groundwater being removed can lead to a lot of issues. Creating artificial ponds and drilling water wells can also contribute to forming sinkholes.
