At the height of the U.S. housing boom, when drywall an essential building material was in short supply, building products suppliers bought offshore. American construction firms used millions of pounds of Chinese-made drywall because it was available and inexpensive. Now that decision haunts thousands of homeowners and apartment dwellers who are concerned that the fumes the wallboard emits can corrode copper pipes, blacken jewelry and silverware, and possibly sicken people. Join us this week on IAQradio when Florida based Indoor Environmental Professionals, Will Spates and Tim Toburen, share their first hand experiences in dealing with indoor environmental challenges posed by Chinese Drywall.
