Once the pins are inserted, users can operate the moisture meter with a control pad to send an electrical signal down one pin. This signal travels through the material on its way to the other pin. The moisture meter uses this signal to measure the material’s resistance to electrical current, which can help determine its moisture content. In general, a reading of 5 to 12 percent is optimal, but a normal reading on a moisture meter depends on the material. Drier materials like drywall should have lower moisture readings of around 5 to 7 percent. Damp materials like wall studs and framing lumber have acceptable moisture levels of up to 12 percent. Q. What is a bad moisture meter reading? Using a meter for flooring, wallpapering, and other DIY projects will ensure a high-quality finish and appropriate moisture percentages.

There are different types of drywall. Greenboard is moisture-resistant and created by surrounding the gypsum drywall core with a moisture-resistant covering. You can also buy fire-resistant drywall and drywall that’s flexible enough to create curved walls or ceilings. Do Pinless Moisture Meters Work on Drywall? There are various ways to measure moisture content, depending upon what type of material you’re working with and the conditions that you are working in. This product includes a hold function. It also comes with an auto shut down feature. It has a 1.7-inch LCD display. This meter has a measuring range of 0% to 99.9%. It is powered by a single 9-volt battery which is not included. Pros In this section, we will explain how to use a moisture meter. We will break down the various steps involved in using one. How you should use a moisture meter will vary depending on what type of surface you’re trying to measure the moisture from and what type of moisture meter you are using.

Above all, a moisture meter for walls and other structures will be most accurate if used correctly. A high-quality moisture meter used on the correct material by an experienced DIYer can accurately measure moisture to within 0.1 percent. However, an inexpensive moisture meter used on an inappropriate material without a proper scale could return inaccurate readings in the same way that a poor-quality stud finder can fail to find a stud if used improperly. Why Trust Bob Vila Actively growing mould is not only damaging to the material that it lives on – which can compromise the structural integrity of a building – it is also damaging to the inhabitants of that building. People who spend extended time in a damp, mouldy environment can develop problems like respiratory ailments, allergies, infections and other irritations. You cannot use any type of electronic moisture meter to get a quantitative measure of the amount of moisture in masonry or plaster. This is for another video, but there are articles which we’ve written on this subject, if you’d like to explore these? There is a great guide on our Technical Director’s preservationexpert blog, which will help you differentiate between the different ways of measuring moisture in masonry, using electronic damp meters, Chemical moisture meters (speedy type), and the gravimetric method too. We will now look at an all-in-one device. This moisture meter type is designed to combine the benefits of the two aforementioned devices and sometimes a thermo-hygrometer too. It has a measuring range of 4% to 80%. This device is powered by three 1.5-volt AAA batteries which come with this product. Pros

Damp proofing 5, Chemical damp-proof course insertion – the attendant problems, Property Care Association, 2008 Arguably, this product is the best to feature in this section. It has a pH level detection range of 3-8, it's simple to use and it comes with an easy to read interface. Smaller, more precise scales provide more accurate measurement and frequently come in meters used in the flooring and fine carpentry industry to ensure optimal moisture percentage. However, most DIYers would benefit more from a broader scale range so they can use the same meter for many applications. Additional Features

While pin-type moisture meters can be used on drywall, pinless meters are generally recommended for non-invasive and less damaging moisture detection in drywall materials. What are the signs that my drywall needs to be replaced due to moisture damage? Anyone looking for a combination pin/pinless moisture meter might not want to overlook the Extech MO55 pin/pinless moisture meter from Teledyne Flir. This meter offers accurate pinless readings between 0 percent to 99 percent in both wood and other building materials, as well as a 5 percent to 50 percent range in wood and 1.5 percent to 33 percent range in building materials when using the pins.

A reference scale is simply a mode in which you can change your moisture meter to allow it to give you estimates of the moisture content in other materials that do not have a dedicated reading scale. For maximum versatility, look for a wood moisture meter that can detect moisture in many materials, such as plasterboard, carpet and wallpaper, not just wood. This will allow you to pinpoint any dampness in your home, providing better value for money.Pinless meters are also a great choice for scanning large areas as the whole measurement process is easier and takes less time. They allow the user to collect more data to determine the average result. Power-wise, the model is equipped with a single 6F22 battery that lasts quite a bit and will get you through a couple of months of active use. The battery replacement process, on the other hand, can be somewhat time-consuming, so expect to spend a few minutes to insert a new one when the old battery runs out of juice. To save the battery life a tad bit longer, the meter is equipped with an auto shut-off function.
