Tools Every Homeowner Should Think About Having
Pinless Moisture Meter
One of the most common and expensive problems a homeowner will face is water leaks. With a pinless moisture meter you can find the exact moisture content of your flooring and walls even behind paint and linoleum. If the moisture content is less than 19%, generally, there won't be any problems because mold, mildew and wood destroying organisms need more than 19% moisture to live.
It's a good idea to do a yearly check around toilets, bathtubs and all interior walls to ensure you catch moisture problems before they get expensive.
