Fear of floors or the ground collapsing.

Does this phobia have a name? Ever since I was little I have had this fear of falling through the floor or that it will collapse,especially in the bathroom. Sloped or creaking floors terrify me and I even worry about the weight of all the buildings being to much for the ground. Everywhere I go I think about it and notice every little slope and weak spot. We recently moved to an old second floor apt and the floor slopes bad and they creak. I'm afraid it's not stable and it will break under the weight of us and our things. How do you really know how long an old building will withstand residents? Anyone else have this fear? How do you cope? In case you are wondering there were circumstances that led to us having to take this apt. Or we would have kept looking. Thanks for reading.
