The 2009 Chinese drywall controversy has been called a health and safety issue involving defective drywall manufactured in China and imported by the United States starting in 2004. Laboratory tests of samples for volatile chemicals have identified emissions of the sulfurous gases carbon disulfide, carbonyl sulfide, and hydrogen sulfide. These emissions, which have the odor of rotten eggs, worsen as temperature and humidity rise. Homeowners have reported respiratory tract infections, sinus problems and nosebleeds.
In homes with the defective drywall, copper surfaces such as pipes, wiring, and air conditioner coils corrode, turning black and powdery, a chemical process indicative of reaction with hydrogen sulfide.
With our experience in mold remediation, we have made it our business to become experts in dealing with this issue. We have developed protocols for removing the drywall, solving the plumbing and electrical issues and putting the home back to an uncontaminated state.
