The winter months may not be the time that you think about checking your home for moisture. With the intermittent snow, rain, or hail, moisture can still be a problem. Keeping your home dry will not only keep their value of your home up, it will also keep you much healthier. Making sure that your home is free of excess moisture will keep the wood surfaces, and windows stay damage-free. Detecting excess moisture before it becomes a problem is really the only way to avoid moisture related damage.

If you have a leak in your home, or are worried about excess moisture, you need to invest in a moisture meter from Sonin. Bacteria and mold will multiply in warm, moist environments. During the winter months many people keep their homes at a warmer temperature for comfort. This is the perfect environment to breed spores and bacteria that may negatively affect your health.

The moisture meters from Sonin are fast, accurate, and each comes with a warranty. With the moisture meters from Sonin you can also change the meter to reflect the type of wood that you are testing.

What you may not understand is that moisture content within structural wood framing can lead to problems if left untreated.
