Senators Ask FTC to Clamp Down on Chinese Drywall Repair Scams

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

A group of U.S. Senators has asked the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) to crack down on  Chinese drywall repair scams.

While it is understandable that Chinese drywall victims want the problem resolved quickly, it is important to note that remediation protocols have not been established, and cross-contamination could occur if repairs are not done correctly. Even after Chinese drywall has been torn out and replaced, out-gassing of sulfur compounds and other elements continues to occur. Remediation will only further jeopardize public health when it is done without adequate safeguards or by unqualified individuals.

If Chinese drywall repairs are performed before effective methods are developed, homeowners may be without recourse should they find that repairs do not confirm with the protocols that eventually will be established. For that reason, it is in the best interests of homeowners to delay any Chinese drywall repairs until a remediation protocol has been formulated.

In a letter to FTC Chairman Jon Leibowitz, Senators Mary Landrieu,  (D-La), Bill Nelson (D-Fla.), David Vitter (R-La.), Thad Cochran (R-Miss.), Roger Wicker (R-Miss.) and Jim Webb (D-Va.), raised concerns about deceptive practices that prey on consumers with defective drywall and asked the Commission to fully investigate and prosecute companies engaging in these activities.

“Homeowners in our states are already struggling to deal with the health and property issues related to the defective drywall,” the Senators wrote. “We believe that these impacted homeowners should not be further victimized by spending additional funds on remediation or preliminary testing not approved or endorsed by the Federal government or any State agency. As we work together with the designated Federal and State agencies to develop real solutions to the problems created by contaminated drywall, it is important that the FTC ensure that homeowners are protected from companies seeking to make fast money off the misfortune of these homeowners.”
