Toxic Drywall Danger

Toxic Drywall Classes Planned
August 19, 2009 Lakeland, Florida: JR Hafer a Florida Realtor® with Plantation Realty announced today that he is planning to conduct classes to educate Realtors®, Homeowners and potential buyers about Toxic Chinese drywall.
During the construction “boom” of 2004 through 2007, and a shortage of building materials as a result of catastrophic damages caused by nine hurricanes within those years, wall board or drywall among other material was imported from China.
Real health problems continue to be reported in addition to the corrosive nature of the Chinese toxic drywall that was evidently manufactured using elements and chemical compounds banned in the United States.
The “Rotten Egg” smell and corrosive sulfur like gases are emitted when the temperature and humidity is high causing alarm and unlivable conditions in houses over 100,000 houses build between 2000 and 2009 when reported mysterious illnesses as well as deteriorating conditions of fixtures and wiring appeared.
This defective drywall not only corrodes pipes, fixtures etc., but it could be causing fires, and might be radioactive. How do you detect it? What can you do about it? What’s going on? All this information and more will be revealed to the public by Hafer in his classes.
Hafer is in contact with drywall suppliers, builders, testing organization politicians, governmental agencies, who he hopes to gain their co-operation in presenting this problematic impending catastrophe looming over multiplied thousands.
With the number of foreclosures and abandoned homes historically high the toxic drywall problem has been down played by the industry and studied by the government, but there has been no direction provided. Scammers are rampant and lawyers by the hundreds are forming class action suits. But no answers have been provided until now.
Watch for announcements when and where these classes are will be held or Call 863-224-2242.


  1. The problem with the defective Chinese drywall has been causing homeowners and their families to deal with sulfur fumes that smell like “rotten eggs” and cause air conditioning coils to corrode as well as sinus and respiratory ailments, eye and skin irritation, persistent runny or bloody noses, headaches, and asthma. Some situations have become so severe that residents have had to vacate their homes. In some cases, victims have been harassed by builders into signing unfair, one-sided remediation agreements. I found a pretty good blog that has been providing valuable information on the problems: www dot chinese-drywall-answers dot com
