Florida Sinkhole Dangers – Gainesville Restoration and Remodeling. Sinkholes are depressions or “holes” in the surface of land that occur throughout West-Central Florida. In addition, sinkholes can be shallow or deep; big or small. But, all are a result of the underlying limestone dissolving. Due to a process that takes sometimes thousands of years. As a result, the water gradually dissolves small parts of the rock; enlarging its natural fissure which creates cavities beneath. Also, sinkholes are called different things in many different countries. While some of these other names for a sinkhole include Shake Hole, Cenote, Swallow Hole or Doline. Sinkholes will often form gradually or suddenly.

The visible signs that a sinkhole may be forming include; sagging trees or fence posts, doors or windows that no longer close properly, and rainwater collecting in unlikely places. There is not a definite way to know when a sinkhole will occur and shake things up. Some sinkholes are visible; while some may go unnoticed for some time.
Sinkholes can destroy homes and in some cases even cause death. Usually, these catastrophic sinkholes give you some warning over the course of hours. But, the entire state of Florida is karst landscape and an irregular limestone region; with sinkholes, underground streams, and caverns.
