So I’m still kind of new. Doing a condo today and my moisture meter (the one that lays on top of the surface, not the one with probes) was ready 0 to 1% on the dry wall in the middle of the room but around the windows it was 65%+, which also set off the alarm. Once I got I decided to check my sliding glass door and windows and same thing. 65%+ but quickly falls to zero. What’s the deal?
Situation number two, same inspection. The base around the toilet has had some obvious issues that said they were addressed but it doesn’t look like it. Switching the meter from day-wall to masonry (tile floor), samples from different parts of the floor came in at 50-56%. Next to the toilet it was 90-100%.
I’m thinking the toilet needs to be addressed by a contractor and plumber but I’m second guessing the window results.
Thanks for you all’s input!
