Moisture metres are used to determine how much water is present in a material sample. This measurement helps the user to see if the moisture levels are correct or if they need to be adjusted. Property inspectors may be particularly interested in determining moisture levels due to the danger of damp-related damage. Furniture makers that want to ensure the highest possible quality may find another use for the material. Digital screens are common on moisture metres, allowing for rapid readings. The data could reveal whether there is a difference in moisture levels compared to a set limit.
