Chinese Drywall Victims Seek Help

March 31st, 2009 by flanews

Angry home owners were at the state capitol today seeking help to move out of their hazardous homes.

A Broward County group of homeowners were brought together earlier this year after they found out their homes were build with Chinese Drywall. Some drywall imported from China between 2004 and 2007 contains dangerous levels of sulfur. The sulfur can cause breathing problems for residents. John Willis home was built with the toxic material. Now his family has breathing problems.

My son eventually end up having to have surgery to remove the infection and has another sinus infection diagnosed last week. My wife who has never had sinus infections has had three or four of them. You walk into these homes and you can smell them, said Willis.

The homeowners meet with staff at the governors office and attorney generals office as well as lawmakers. Theyre asking the state to help them find a new place to live or to find a way to fix their homes.
