A national mold remediation trade organization was in Fort Myers on Thursdaydemonstrating a Chinese drywall fix that carries a 10-year warranty and follow-up visitsto ensure the hardy bacteria that cause air quality problems are gone for good.

The drywall, imported from China mostly between 2004 and 2008, emits sulfur compounds that corrode air conditioning coils, electrical wiring and numerous other metal items. Residents claim health symptoms ranging from nosebleeds to respiratory problems.

The Abita Springs, La.-based National Organization of Remediators and Mold Inspectors developed its procedures to give homeowners some assurance that they can get long-term relief, said Doug Hoffman, executive director of the organization. From the news-press.com.
