Do you need a piece of land cleared in Central Florida? Where Do You Start and what do you need to know? There are a number of things that go into land clearing and just as many issues to watch out for.
Underground utilities, sewer lines and power cables, are not always clearly marked. Detecting them may not be easy. Digging up these utilities can be extremely dangerous. Which is why professional excavation does excess research before beginning the project.
Small plants and trees may be easy to excavate and remove, but removing larger trees and their roots take a lot more that bulldozing. It takes the experience of a professional to tackle these issues. Roots need to be expected before removing the tree and safety needs to be addressed as removing large trees can be dangerous and cause extensive damage.
Hazardous waste left on abandoned or vacant property is an especially big issue here in Central Florida. Often times this includes chemicals, garbage, unwanted dangerous materials. These items need to be properly removed and disposed of.
Water sources located underground can be difficult to detect until you start digging. Soft ground can indicate an issue with water, which can be expensive to reroute to make the property buildable. It is important to have the property inspected before purchasing.
Permits are required before excavation or site clearing can begin. To avoid any delays, make sure you have all the necessary information for the permits.
