What Causes Sinkholes?

Sinkholes are the result of the underground bedrock collapsing and leaving behind a void. They can occur naturally from rotting trees or changes in water levels, or they can be man-made from cutting down trees and leaving stumps to rot or by burying construction debris and then seeing the ground settle. 


Can Sinkholes Be Repaired? 

Absolutely they can and American Servicers has been repairing and filling in sinkholes for over 5 years. Sinkholes come in all shapes and sizes and pose safety risks for people, pets, and properties. Small holes cause twisted ankles and trips and falls. Larger ones can consume cars and damage building foundations. 

American Servicers first inspects the sinkhole to determine its size and level of stability. They will look for the cause of the sinkhole and determine the best approach to prevent further sinking and fill in the void. American Servicers removes the outer edges of the sinkhole to determine where there are additional pockets in the soil that can open up. They excavate until they find solid ground before beginning the process of filling the hole back in. 


How to Properly Repair a Sinkhole

 Sinkhole repair is not a weekend DIY project. It can be dangerous and proper machinery and knowledge are required. We recommend calling an expert from American Servicers at (419) 827-3071 for help. Many homeowners will simply add dirt or other materials into a sinkhole in hopes of filling it in. 

This method isn't just counterproductive, it's also dangerous. Adding organic materials will speed up the decaying process, potentially enlarging the hole. If dirt is simply added to the hole, it will only add more weight and potentially cause it to sink even faster, especially when it rains. The only way to properly remediate a sinkhole is to remove the source of the problem. This requires excavation of all debris. Only then can new fill material be installed and compacted. 


What is the Cost for Sinkhole Remediation?

Sometimes, your homeowners or commercial building insurance will cover the repairs. If you're not sure, the professionals at American Servicers can help you review your policy and get the answers to your questions. Small sinkholes that have caused structural damage often cost between several hundred and several thousand dollars to remediate. However, some sinkholes cause much more extensive damage. American Servicers offers free quotes for sinkhole remediation and detailed written estimates.
