Drywall is the most prevalent wall type to use in both commercial and residential buildings. It is indeed easy to install and pretty much affordable, but not without problems. First, drywall is notorious for accumulating dust quickly. If you don’t have any medical history of being allergic to airborne allergens, then you may have overlooked that issue. But if you do, your long-term convenience is at stake here.
Second, drywall is vulnerable to scratches, gouges, dents, and holes. Hence, if you are the kind of person who gets bored with decor styles quickly and loves to rearrange the furniture, you may find many eyesores on the drywall as soon as it is installed. And third, if you happen to live in an area with high humidity and dampness, mold will spread like crazy on the drywall boards.
Now that you’ve learned about the drawbacks, let’s get to the solutions.
