How can i measure humidity in my home?
All timber products are moisture and heat sensitive. We recommend that everyone with a timber floor should measure humidity within the home using a hygrometer. This is a discrete, digital device that gives readings of relative air humidity (RAH). Maintaining a RAH of 50-65% will minimise the shrinkage and expansion of your timber floor. It will also protect any other wooden furniture, antiques, paintings and keep you feeling healthy too! Low humidity affects timber and also causes human skin to dry, flake and crack. If measured it can be avoided!
