Moisture Meters Available
As part of ongoing efforts to support those affected by recent flooding, Nebraska Extension Boyd County Office has 3 moisture meters available for homeowners and businesses to borrow to monitor the moisture content of flooded materials. There is also a meter in the Lynch Community Hall to borrow.

Instructions for using the meter will be provided upon checkout. 

“It’s important to wait until wood and other materials dry out before attempting to repair a flood-damaged home,” said Dave Varner, associate dean with Nebraska Extension. “Renovating too soon could trap moisture, leading to rotting and promoting the growth of mold.”
