I am in the house with the suspected Chinese drywall & I feel sick, or my family members are sick. We leave the home for a few days, or a week, & we all feel better.
Washington, DC (PRWEB) April 23, 2009
Americas Watchdog and its Homeowners Consumer Center have been advancing a national and state by state investigation of toxic Chinese drywall for nearly four months. The group is announcing they have discovered toxic Chinese drywall in significant quantities in Colorado. Earlier this week the group announced it had found the toxic imported building product all over Texas.
According to the group, "When people talk to us, or read about toxic Chinese drywall, its like an epiphany, and they say oh my God, they are talking about me, and my house. At some point the Obama Administration is going to have to get involved in what we are calling, the absolute worst environmental disaster for US homeowners in history." The group goes on to say that, "We need a meaningful federal response to this disaster, people are getting sick in these houses, & the toxic Chinese drywall is going eventually kill people."
To date the US Consumer Products Safety Commission has yet to even recall this product. If a homeowner suspects they might have toxic Chinese drywall in their home they should contact the Homeowners Consumer Center at 866-714-6466, or contact the group via their web site at Http://HomeownersConsumerCenter.Com.
Aside from Texas & Colorado, what other US States have new or remodeled homes with toxic Chinese drywall? Florida, Mississippi, Louisiana, Georgia, Maryland, Virginia, Connecticut, the Carolina's, Georgia, Arizona, California & Nevada.
What Are The Updated Indicators Of A Home or Condominium Having Toxic Chinese Drywall?
The house has to have been built or remodeled after 2000. Most homes that will have the toxic Chinese drywall were built between 2003 & 2007. There may, or may not be a sulfur/rotten egg smell.
Most Importantly Health & Toxic Chinese Drywall:
There have been no formal health studies on the affects of exposure to toxic Chinese dry wall. However, some common denominators appear to present, as follow: nose bleeds, headaches, coughs, upper respiratory or sinus issues, rashes. In many cases victims have gone to a physician or a emergency room only to be told, "We can't tell what is wrong with you."
The Homeowners Consumer Center believes that exposure to toxic Chinese drywall, and some of these medical symptoms are related, because homeowners in new homes in different parts of the country, different states, all share two things in common -- the fact that Chinese drywall is in their house and they have these medical conditions. In many cases not everyone in the family will share the same symptoms. In some cases, the adults are fine, but the children are sick, or in other cases, the adults are sick and the kids are not. In many cases all of the homes occupants are sick. If you live in a home & suspect toxic Chinese drywall is present you can call the Homeowners Consumer Center anytime at 866-714-6466, or contact the group via their web site at Http://HomeownersConsumerCenter.com.
