What is a Moisture Meter?
- A Moisture Meter measures differential moisture levels in building walls without any need for physical penetration and damage.
- Easily identify potential termite risk areas by the concentrated presence of moisture.
- Easily and accurately identify the difference in moisture levels on most surfaces, including wood, drywall, roofing, plaster, brick, concrete, etc.
- Specially designed padding ensures no marks occur on the tested surface areas when scanning for moisture.
Use of the Moisture Meter:
When termites attack timber, they bring moisture into the wood that they are attacking, and hence this causes discolouration. So be very alert for discoloured timbers.
We will use a Moisture Meter to check the walls. Termites must live and work in very high humidity and so we find that the use of a Moisture Meter in various situations is helpful.
Remember, a Moisture Meter will not find termites, it will find areas of high moisture content. Termites may bring moisture into the wood, so that is why it is an essential tool to employ when carrying out a termite inspection.
