How to Control Erosion in Florida
Erosion Control in Florida
Erosion can cause a lot of damage to property and shorelines in Florida. Controlling soil erosion is an extremely specialized field.

Foundation Professionals of Florida has the experience and products to control soil erosion before it becomes a bigger issue.
Foundation Pros of Florida uses chemical grouting to fill voids and stabilize the soil. One of the advantages of chemical grouting is its ability to strengthen existing soils without the need for excavation. We use polyurethane resins for both permeation and compaction grouting. Permeation grouting saturates the soil with a low viscosity resin. Compaction grouting results from injecting a two component, rapid set, highly expansive structural foam. This polyurethane foam is injected through small holes that are drilled into the affected area and fills the voids and compacts the soil by its expansive pressure. The advantages of using polyurethane resins for soil stabilization and void filling are:
- It expands 20 times its liquid volume and moves laterally to fill the entire void
- Creates a moisture seal barrier, eliminating water penetration
- Quick drying time
- Light weight
- Provides a permanent solution
Soil stabilization in Florida is important. If the soil is not stabilized, it can cause a sinkhole to form. Florida has recorded more sinkhole than any other state in the country. This is because of the soluble limestone that is throughout the state. When water runs through limestone, it will dissolve the limestone creating voids and possible sinkholes.
