A water stain in a carpet is an indicator that there may be a leaking window. When the inspector pulls up the corner of the carpet, he discovers the carpet was completely wet. He can see the tack strip is deteriorating. To confirm this, the inspector uses a moisture meter. With this information, we can document this data for this particular time. This is how we follow up on wet marks or water stains.
