What is the lifespan of drywall?
To understand the lifespan of drywall, it’s helpful to learn about the materials that it’s made of. Drywall is a panel made of gypsum, which is a mineral that’s commonly used in many forms of plaster and other products. That gypsum is sandwiched between layers of paper or fiberglass.

Because of its mineral composition, drywall surfaces can last about as long as concrete. It has the strength to last years, and generally only needs to be replaced in the event of serious damage.
How can I maintain my drywall?
Here are a few maintenance tips for your home’s drywall.
  • Cleaning your drywall – Drywall is a relatively delicate material, and should be treated as such. When you decide to clean your drywall, don’t use abrasive cleaning materials like a stiff-bristled brush or the scrubbing side of a sponge. Only use a soft cloth when cleaning your drywall.
  • How to avoid staining – Again, drywall is relatively delicate, and heavy-duty cleaning agents will only make the damage worse. Stay away from detergents of any kind, and stick to simple soap when cleaning.
  • Drywall and the elements – Drywall panels are meant to be kept in room-temperature conditions. Any excessive humidity or extreme temperatures can damage your drywall, so make sure your home’s ventilation and air conditioning are working properly.
