Toxic Chinese Drywall Experts Join Forces to Find Remedial Solutions for Homeowners
Date:5/1/2009

GAINESVILLE, Fla., May 1 /PRNewswire/ -- One of the leading forensic experts on building envelope water intrusion and toxic mold, Spiderman Mulholland, is joining forces with a network of professionals to combat the Toxic Chinese Drywall issues facing the United States today.

Collaborating with top toxicologists, chemists, material and building scientists, forensic investigators, remediation and construction specialists and individuals with laboratory and inspection expertise is essential to the research efforts.

The group intends to plan and implement a cost-effective program aimed at battling the crisis that has impacted 41 states.

Mulholland, a leading expert witness in Toxic Chinese Drywall cases, is currently developing protocols for inspections and remediation.

"Our main focus is being driven by the needs of homeowners and the serious life-safety issues we believe could be critical to their well-being," Mulholland said.

Chinese drywall was installed in more than 100,000 homes between 2004 and 2006. Among the highly toxic compounds being found are hydrogen sulfide, sulfuric acid, sulfur dioxide and carbon disulfide. Prolonged exposure can cause serious problems to the nervous system.

The manufacturer has acknowledged that the drywall is defective, but emphasizes that not all China drywall from that period is tainted. Recent findings show that some U.S. stamped drywall may also be toxic.

Given the rise in health complaints, residents are advised to be aware of symptoms including nose bleeds, headaches, coughs, upper respiratory or sinus issues, eye irritation, fatigue, difficulty breathing, body aches and rashes.

Physical evidence includes HVAC-unit failure or electrical appliances, copper coils turning black, corroded electrical wiring, tarnished silver jewelry or utensils and light bulbs burning out at a faster rate.

Although the smell of rotten eggs in a home could indicate a toxic drywall problem, Mulholland's investigations show that is not always the case.

Some groups are relying on air sampling methods to determine drywall problems; however that method is unreliable, Mulholland says.

Mulholland's company, US Building Consultants Inc. has an accredited testing facility that can determine toxic-drywall problems. He inspects and consults in drywall cases.
