Does your house smell like rotten eggs? Are your air conditioning coils corroding and turning black? You might have bad Chinese drywall!
Last month, the Federal government released a study of drywall imported into the United States from China between 2001 and 2009 which supported consumer complaints of health problems resulting from its use.
Due to a shortage of US-made drywall during that period, especially from the terrible hurricane seasons of 2004 and 2005, drywall was imported from China and used in as many as 20,000 American homes. The drywall has a high sulfur content, but the reason why is unknown.
Thousands of lawsuits have been filed because of effects from a home that smells like rotten eggs to health problems like “nosebleeds, headaches, difficulty breathing and asthma attacks….” USA Today
If your home was built between 2001 and 2009 and you think you might be experiencing problems because of chemicals in your drywall, you should have your home inspected and tested. If your drywall is harmful, you will have blackened copper wiring, copper pipes or air conditioner coils. If that is the case, you need to have some testing done in your home.
What happens next? Chinese drywall remediation is in order. The drywall needs to be removed and replaced, as well as some electrical components and sprinklers and smoke alarms.
You don’t want to be breathing these chemicals, but you don’t want to work with them yourself either.
