Microwave detection and quantification of water hidden in and on building materials: implications for healthy buildings and microbiome studies

Horsley, Andrew; Thaler, David S.


Background Excess water in all its forms (moisture, dampness, hidden water) in buildings negatively impacts occupant health but is hard to reliably detect and quantify. Recent advances in through-wall imaging recommend microwaves as a tool with a high potential to noninvasively detect and quantify water throughout buildings. Methods Microwaves in both transmission and reflection (radar) modes were used to perform a simple demonstration of the detection of water both on and hidden within...[Show more]
