If you had new drywall hung between 2001-2008, it is possible that it could be Chinese drywall. Hurricane Katrina and other concurrent natural disasters caused a shortage in drywall due to the high demand for reconstruction materials. Drywall had to be imported from China. A particular type that came to the US contained problematic agents. And as of 2015, over 4,000 homeowners have reported that drywall imported from China has been the culprit of health problems and metal corrosion in their houses. The drywall in question contains high levels of sulfur, which sometimes generates a rotten egg smell in homes. It also may blacken or corrode pipes. It is sometimes detected in wires behind electrical outlet covers in walls. The wires behind the outlets sometimes corrode, leaving a black powder on them. The elements in Chinese drywall can cause failure of air conditioners and other household appliances, and create health problems such as asthma, coughing, headaches, sore throats, and irritated eyes.
