WHAT IS DRYWALL?
Drywall is everywhere – in your home, your workplace, the stores where you go to shop. You may have heard of it by another name such as, sheetrock, plasterboard, or wallboard. Although it is all around us, very few people know where it comes from, how it is made or how useful drywall really is . . .
WHERE DRYWALL COMES FROM...
Drywall is made primarily of gypsum, a mineral usually found in massive beds that look like white sand. One of the most famous gypsum beds in the United States is in New Mexico at the White Sands National Monument. Gypsum contains large amounts of crystalline water which dry the individual molecules. It also makes finished drywall fire-resistant.
HOW IS SHEETROCK MADE?
Gypsum is mined, shipped to factories, mixed with additives such as starch, paper pulp, and a thickening agent, then blended with water, forming a thick paste. Then, the gypsum paste is spread over manila paper and another sheet of paper is laid over it. It is dried out by being sent through ovens at up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit. Then, it is ready to be cut into sheets of 4x8 ft, 4x10 ft, and 4x12 ft.
WHY IS DRYWALL USEFUL
Drywall is versatile, sustainable, and inexpensive and has become an excellent alternative to plaster. It is made of green material and easy to recycle. Most drywall consists of about 95% recycled materials. In addition, recycled drywall can also be used for various purposes: as an ingredient in Portland cement that makes stucco, plaster, and other building materials, and as a soil conditioner that provides calcium and sulfur for plants such as peanuts, potatoes, and corn. It can also assist in neutralizing the ground that has soil high in salt, allowing for crops to grow there. And, of course, it is an excellent construction material used to create walls, ceilings, and a variety of design features and architectural designs. Because it is fire resistant, in buildings where drywall is used, it gives people time to evacuate a building safely when there is a fire emergency.
Interior plaster walls that have since suffered water damage (commonly called "flood damage") must be replaced in most cases. This is due to the loss of structural integrity of the interior gypsum wall and the potential health risk of developing mold spores.
Few health problems in your home are as detrimental as the development of mold spores inside your walls. In most cases, excess water that has accumulated inside the interior wall not only damages the plaster wall. Water seeps into the 2x4 studs, wets any internal wiring, seeps into the insulation that acts like a sponge and seeps into the drywall.
Among all these interior wall elements, most often mold spores of one kind or another will develop. When this occurs, the mold will grow and spread through the interior wall, approaching the ventilation points of the house. At this point, mold spores will spread through the air in your home, causing serious problems for anyone with an allergy.
The effects of mold are well known and even healthy people who do not suffer from allergies or asthma will be affected. It is better to avoid this problem entirely by simply cleaning with water and replacing the drywall than to risk mold spores forming in the air inside the walls and then spreading throughout the house.
