HUD and CPSC Recommend Removing Drywall and Replacing Components

Based on scientific study of the problem to date, HUD and CPSC recommend
consumers remove all possible problem drywall from their homes, and replace
electrical components and wiring, gas service piping, fire suppression
sprinkler systems, smoke alarms and carbon monoxide alarms. Taking these
steps should help eliminate both the source of the problem drywall and
corrosion-damaged components that might cause a safety problem in the home.

The CPSC cautions consumers to exercise caution in contracting for testing
and remediation.

To view a full text of the remediation guidance, visit the federal Drywall
Information Center website (PDF).

More information is available from CPSC.
