We’ve all seen the destructive power of nature on TV, but it’s something completely difference to come face to face with what happens when Mother Nature gets angry. Imagine you’re sitting at home enjoying a lovely evening of revelry and merriment when all of a sudden a behemoth sinkhole opens up and swallows most of your yard. This isn’t an imaginary issue for those living in and around Tampa Bay, FL. In fact, sink holes have been such a problem in Tampa Bay that the three counties in the area- Hillsborough, Pasco and Hernando- have been nicknamed Sinkhole Alley. More than 60% of all the sinkholes in the state occur in Tampa Bay and that has many concerned for the future. While it’s impossible to predict a natural disaster, you can have a plan in place for what happens next. A company like Professional Building Restoration can help with all sorts of problems caused by Mother Nature such as water damage or concrete restoration in West Palm Beach, FL.
According to the landscape experts, it’s the geological features of the state which leaves it prone for sinkholes. Known as karst, the bedrock of Florida is full of caves and pockets created when soft bedrock such as limestone erodes away over time. The weight of the Earth on top of the pocket of space causes the ground to literally swallow itself up. Sink holes can be large or small and they often appear following periods of heavy rain. Massive sinkholes which devour entire houses are rare, but they do happen. When your building is damaged and you need quality building restoration services, there’s only one company you should call!
