Manually toggle between readings or enable auto-cycle mode to automatically toggle between indoor and outdoor readings

Dampen a towel (not dripping wet, but good and damp), then wrap the hygrometer in the towel for 30 to 45 minutes. Then unwrap it and read the humidity (quickly). If your hygrometer is perfectly calibrated (few are) it will be reading exactly 100% humidity.
Some people find this hard to believe, but when you bring outdoor air into the crawl space, the relative humidity actually increases. ... Cool air cannot hold as much moisture as warm air, so the air that enters is now closer to its saturation point (which we call the dew point).
Mold does not dry out and die but remains inactive for a while if moisture is not available. This means that it can still grow back and multiply when it is exposed to any sources of moisture. Professional mold remediation and moisture control help to keep mold at bay.
