Immediately afterwards, some owners gradually discovered that cracks appeared in the walls of their homes, and cracks also appeared in the plaster layer of the shear wall of some stairwells, at the junction of the infill wall and the beam. Some owners were worried that the safety of the main structure of the house would be affected.

After receiving reports on the relevant situation, the local housing and construction department rushed to the scene immediately and ordered the relevant responsible persons to stop the decoration immediately. At the same time, a professional testing and appraisal agency was entrusted to conduct an emergency assessment of the structural safety of the house. The emergency assessment concluded that the house is usable and the cracks have not yet affected the safety of the main structure of the house and must be dealt with and observed regularly.

Subsequently, the appraisal agency continued to collect data to conduct a comprehensive safety appraisal of the house. According to on-site inspection and test results, combined with its usage conditions, bearing capacity calculation and comprehensive analysis, the new mezzanine has not affected the safety of the main structure of the house.
