Curse of the Sulfuric Drywall

Where is YOUR drywall from? It’s not mold, but…

Apparently there’s a Chinese-manufactured drywall which corrodes air conditioner coils. Or more specifically drywall offgassing that is so caustic it corrodes air conditioner coils. (Kind of like my assistant’s ex. But that’s another post.) This particular chinese export appears to be concentrated in Florida (though it’s hard to say if it is the product itself, or the product in Florida’s unique salty/humid conditions. The drywall apparently gives off a nasty sulfuric smell which the Health Dept says is harmless (though we all know how that goes, don’t we? Only time will tell when a state agency says ” no immediate health threat.”)

Sounds like it’s time to call out the troops and do some air quality testing.
