What is moisture?

Moisture is the amount of humidity present in the air and is measured as relative moisture. Relative moisture varies between 0 and 100, 0 being no presence of moisture at all and 100 being all the moisture that air can hold at a certain temperature. Warm air can hold much more water than cold air. Some of the consequences of a high indoor moisture level are condensation, peeling wallpaper or mould.
