The cause of vibrations

Vibrations and movements of houses can have several causes. Among other things, the causes listed below.

Does your home move or vibrate? No matter what the cause is, you can measure it with the Omnidots sensor.

Earthquakes

Earthquakes can have a natural cause, or can be caused by humans. For example by gas extraction. Nowadays people in Groningen are often confronted with earthquakes caused by gas extraction. Houses are not built to resist a lot of vibrations or movement. Therefore earthquakes, even mild ones, can cause damage to houses.

You can monitor the earthquakes from wherever you are by using the online web portal on omnidots.com. So even if you’re not at home, you can check whether your house was affected by earthquakes.

Construction work

Construction work or heavy traffic can cause severe vibrations. These vibrations can damage buildings.
Is there a building being built in your neighborhood? Then you can check if your house is shaking. So you are aware whether your home is affected by construction work.

Traffic nuisance

The Netherlands is a densely populated country. Many railway lines and roads are located near urban areas. Continuous vibration by for example freight transport or freight trains may cause long-term damages to houses.
