Moisture Meters Available at County Extension Offices
May 27 all-day

As part of ongoing efforts to support those affected by recent flooding, the Dawson County Extension Office has moisture meters available for homeowners to borrow to monitor the moisture content of flooded materials.

It can take weeks or months to dry a house to the point where repairs can be made. It’s common for homeowners to discover large amounts of mold in walls months after a flood because they didn’t wait for the structure to dry before making repairs. The moisture level of structures cannot be determined by appearance or time spent drying, so a calibrated meter is recommended to measure moisture levels before rebuilding.

One-hundred-fifty moisture meters have been distributed to extension offices throughout Nebraska and more are on the way. Homeowners wanting to borrow a meter are encouraged to contact the Dawson County Extension Office (308) 324-5501.

Instructions for using the meter will be provided upon checkout.

Access to moisture meters is just one of the many ways that Nebraska Extension is helping Nebraskans recover from the flood. For more information and flood-related resources for individuals and families, homeowners, businesses, and farmers and ranchers, visit https://flood.unl.edu.
