Sinkholes are depressions in the ground caused by some form of collapse of the surface layer. They usually occur when the underlying carbonate rocks (limestone) are slowly dissolved by water. This type of rock is very common in Florida, that’s why the occurrence of sinkholes is not rare in this area.
Damage caused by sinkholes can be extensive and very serious, from swallowing entire buildings to leaving your property uninhabitable.
If you see the sudden appearance of prominent cracks in your walls (interior and exterior) and ceilings, or if you notice that your windows and doors do not properly fit their frames and have become hard to close / open, you may be in the presence of a sinkhole. Other signs of alarm include deep cracks on your driveways and walkways, depressions in your yard surrounded by dying vegetation, and faucet water containing considerable amounts of sediment.
