Sinkhole Prevention Services

No matter where a sinkhole happens, bad things can occur. Sinkholes can occur near storm drains or buried sewer lines, either because of poorly compacted soil or because of a leaking underground pipe. The poorly compacted soil settles over several years, causing a hole or shallow, linear trench on the ground surface. 

Luckily Cloud 9 Services, LLC is here to help prevent these sinkholes from forming on your commercial property or business.

Utilizing our video pipe inspection services our technicians can help determine if there are any storm drain or sewer line pipe issues, give you a detailed breakdown of how to fix any issues spotted, schedule the repair or cleanout services needed to maintain a health system, and if there is already a sinkhole formed we can help still help repair the pipe or drain line to prevent it from getting worse. Contact us at 407-481-2750 and talk with our team of professionals to see how we can help you today.

What Causes Sinkholes To Occur?

Sinkholes are caused when the surrounding soil becomes oversaturated and the earth collapses. This can occur around storm water drains, as well as sewer lines, when there are leaks in the pipe or culvert. The leaks can happen when the structure begins to deteriorate, is cracked or broken. The material that is used to seal the pipes can weaken over time, allowing storm or sewer water to enter the surrounding soil. If these systems aren't closely monitored, the leak can start small and can cause damage for a while before it's noticed. This is also why it's important to get regular checks on your storm drain and sewer line systems at least once a year, if not more, in order to maintain the health of the pipes,  but also keep things like this from occurring. Old or deteriorating joints aren't the only way that a drain can begin to leak. The soil around the storm water can drain or settle, causing a problem. If the earth around the drain sinks, the pipe can shift, breaking joints or causing the drain to crack. 

A sinkhole can quickly develop or it can take a long amount of time depending on a wide variety of factors. The amount of water that flows through these systems is the biggest factor, but the number, size, and location of the leaks can also play a role. In Florida especially since rain occurs so often it's important to maintain close vigilance in order to keep these holes from forming. Large holes or cracks could appear in a drain or sewer line, but they could go undetected until a large amount of water flows through and leaks into the surrounding soil.

What Can You Do to Keep A Sinkhole From Forming?

While sinkholes are a natural occurrence that happen over time based on a variety of factors, there are a few things you can do to help keep sinkholes from forming for a long amount of time. The biggest thing you as a commercial property or business can do is to properly maintain the health of the storm drains and sewer lines located on your property. Some factors to look out for are :

  • Whether the storm drains are draining water properly when heavy rains occur.

  • If you see puddles of foul smelling water forming in your grass.

  • Toilet backups.

  • Pooling water in parking lots.

  • Trash or debris piling up around storm drain grate.

  • Brown or extra lush looking grass. 

  • And more!
