Symptoms of Chinese Drywall Exposure

While it’s hard to tell what type of drywall was used in your home after everything is painted and the home is officially a “home,” there are various health problems and symptoms that homeowners with drywall from China are experiencing. These symptoms include:

  • Nose bleeds
  • Breathing problems
  • Allergy-type symptoms
  • Nausea
  • Headaches
  • According to a home inspection report, Chinese drywall emits sulphide gases that are the source of health problems for homeowners, and that “these sulphide gases are also alleged to cause serious health conditions and illnesses, such as shortness of breath, dizziness, headaches, fatigue, insomnia, eye irritations and respiratory difficulties.” That these gases are capable of corroding copper coils and irreparably damaging plumbing and electrical components shows that they are extremely toxic and powerful.

    If you are suffering from any of these symptoms, contact a health professional immediately and consult with one of our attorneys to find out what legal remedies are available for this scenario.
