I am using a brand new Ryobi Moisture Meter and the included instructions leave much to be desired. While it shows how to use the meter, it does not explain how to interpret the results.
I recently moved into a new home with new home furniture
and would like to finish the basement, but first I want to make sure it is moisture free, or at least safe enough to finish.
I guess my first question is: Are moisture meters meant to be used on a concrete floor in a basement, or only on the walls?
If yes, then is a reading of 60 - 70 % enough to raise concern? The cinder block walls were anywhere from 0-20% depending how close it was to the French drain.
Any help is appreciated.
