What is a moisture meter used for?

A moisture meter is a device used to measure the amount of water in a particular material. The information gathered from a moisture meter can be used to determine if the material is ready for use or not. Also this device helps to identify unexpected dryness or wetness of the material. Paper products and wood can be very sensitive to moisture. However, before using a material or substance that is easily affected by moisture, there is the need to test for the percentage of moisture in it.
