House was built in 1983, in the US midwest.
We have a problem with things pulling out of the drywall. Yesterday my closet shelving pulled out of the drywall (8 anchors at once). The main bathroom has had 5 of the screw-in metal anchors pull out, from high-demand uses like the toilet paper holder or washcloth ring. It's pretty much a guarantee that if we don't hit a stud, the item will eventually fall down.
- How can I fix the holes caused by anchors pulling out?
- Can I reuse the area where the anchors pulled out after fixing it?
- How can I prevent further damage?
