Use moisture meters to determine when structures are dried out and ready for rebuilding. Nebraska Extension is pleased to announce that they have moisture meters available for homeowners to borrow to determine if their structures are dried out enough and ready for rebuilding. Renovating too soon could trap moisture in wood, leading to rotting and promoting growth of mold. Contact the Cedar County Extension Office at 402-254-6821 to borrow a moisture meter before completing your flood renovations. Instructions for moisture meter use.
