Moisture and Humidity Detection

Posted by Randy Isaac on

Moisture and humidity can only be properly detected and measured by the right equipment, notably the right meters. Meters offer a true picture of the source and extent to which the moisture has impacted a structure.

Type of meters:

  • Non-Penetrating Meters

Non- penetrating meters are non-invasive and don't cause damage to a structure. They have a series of flat sensors on the bottom that measure the moisture levels between them. They're an excellent tool for comparing the affected area to either a non-affected area or to a dry a standard.

  • Penetrating Meters

These meters have a series of pins that probe the surface and give you a digital display of moisture content. They tend to be more accurate than non-penetrating meters. Most come with deep wall probes for finding trapped moisture.
