Questions & Answers

Will iit detect mold as well as moisture

Asked by: Sandee
Nope, just a condition favorable to mold growth. Try a blacklight.

I have water leaking in the basement behind existing drywall. Will I be able to detect the crack location/direction using this without having to rip out the drywall??
Asked by: Anonymous
Not likely. The meter works only when the surface being tested is porous and in direct contact with moisture. If this were the case, you would see the evidence with your own eyes. Even if you detect moisture you cant pinpoint a contact with any precision.

On walls that are reading dry why do I always get a beep on wall corners? Is this a glitch or are corners naturally wet?

Asked by: Tonyastro
I took mine back and got one with pins and it works much better. Kept getting lots of bad readings with pinless meter

Can this tool measure mold in the bathroom shower area, like around the window area, or even in the tiles?

I am also concerned about the vent area where the swamp cooler is.
Asked by: Ben213
A moisture meter only measures the amount of moisture present in the building material being tested. it DOES NOT measure mold. Mold and the type are determined visually and by sophisticated sample testing procedures provided by a liscensed professional.

Professional Digital Pinless Moisture Meter with Backlit LCD is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 118.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wanted a 'non-intrusive' meter. However, for our primary application... Wanted a 'non-intrusive' meter. However, for our primary application e.g. 'wood on slab', probably not a good choice. Due to the depth of measure, 0.75 inch, the measurement is influenced by the slab, so its only a qualitative measure. Everywhere else, wall or wood on wood, seems accurate.
