Forensic Expert Investigating Chinese Drywall Issue

GAINESVILLE, Fla., April 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Spiderman Mulholland, one of the country's leading forensic experts on building envelope water intrusion and toxic mold, is conducting investigations and working with environmental organizations and legal experts regarding the Chinese drywall issues that have impacted homes and buildings in more than 41 states.

"The evidence we have uncovered to date points to sulfur emissions that corrode wires, air conditioners, electrical appliances and metal fixtures," said Mulholland. "Some home and property owners have also complained about health issues."

There are reports of Chinese drywall being installed in more than 100,000 homes in the United States. Hundreds of millions of sheets of Chinese drywall were imported from 2004 to 2006. Chinese drywall has also been found in homes built or remodeled as early as 2001.

The manufacturer has acknowledged that the drywall is defective, but not all drywall imported from China during the period in question should be considered tainted.

Among the highly toxic compounds that have been found in drywall are hydrogen sulfide, sulfuric acid, sulfur dioxide and carbon disulfide. Prolonged exposure to these compounds can cause serious problems and affect the nervous system.

Symptoms included in the general health complaints are nose bleeds, headaches, coughs, upper respiratory or sinus issues, eye irritation, fatigue, difficulty breathing, body aches and rashes.

Some physical evidence of a problem includes failure of HVAC units or electrical appliances, copper coils turning black, corroded electrical wiring, tarnished silver jewelry or silver-plated utensils, light bulbs burning out at a faster rate or the smell of rotten eggs.

"It is important for people not to overreact," said Mulholland. "If you have any concerns use a nationally certified and licensed environmental expert for testing. Do not let the same company test and remediate the problem."

Mulholland's company, USBCI, performs inspections and has an accredited testing facility that can determine if there is a toxic-drywall problem.
