March 19, 2012 - PRLog -- The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has received 3,770 reports from residents in 42 states who believe their health symptoms or the corrosion of certain metal components in their homes is related to the presence of drywall produced in China. State and local health authorities also received similar reports.

At this time, experts believe that defective imported drywall was installed in homes built or remodeled from 2001 - 2008. The number and location of all affected or potentially affected homes are not yet known.

Protect your home, protect your family. The CPSC has developed guides for residents to help them identify drywall problems. Three general areas to consider include:

•Corrosion: Are any of your home’s copper pipes, plumbing fixtures, or uninsulated electrical wires at light switches or receptacles corroded? Have your air conditioner evaporator coils failed early? Metal or copper corrosion of these types may mean there is defective drywall in your home.

•Odor: Does your home have an odor that smells like rotten eggs, matches, or fireworks? A sulfur odor in the home might mean defective drywall is present.

•Label: Can you see the back side of your drywall? Some drywall from China is stamped with “Made in China” on the back. However, some Chinese drywall does not have a label or markings.

Northwind Carpentry ( follows Remediation Guidance by CPSC for homes with problem drywall. CPSC calls for the replacement of all:

1. possible problem drywall;

2. smoke alarms and carbon monoxide alarms;

3. electrical distribution components (including receptacles, switches, and circuit breakers, but not necessarily wiring); and

4. fusible-type fire sprinkler heads.
