A moisture meter is an instrument designed for measuring the water content, usually in terms of percentage, in substances and materials. Moisture meters are integral to the process of determining materials readiness and suitability for use in any given field. Moisture content, especially in wood products, can have a significant impact on physical properties. Failure to detect unexpected levels of moisture can lead to serious problems, especially in the construction industry. If the right process is not implemented dry rot and mould can set in, leading to more serious problems that compromise the structural integrity of your project.
