Back in th late 1990’s, our founder owned a series of rental properties in the Southeast that were plagued with moisture issues. After much research he pointed to the subtropical climate, with it’s high humdity, as the culprit. Committed to finding a solution, he worked with various research teams at major universities to learn the best approach for controlling moisture for any type of structure, including crawl space homes, slab homes, condominiums, townhomes and commercial & industrial facilities. After installing a crawl space solution at his rental property, he was amazed by the immediate results and was inspired to share the solution with others. The business was a one man show at that time, and grew one home at a time over the next year. With nothing but positive results, he formed an LLC in early 2004 in Georgia and continued to expand the business. In 2012, he moved to Gulf Breeze, Florida, and incorporated there. Since then, Southern Climate Solutions has served 1000’s of homeowners, businesses and municipalities, creating custom moisture control solutions to combat the negative effects of high humidity while promoting superior indoor air quality.

I recently purchased a house in Navy Point and this summer the wood floors started cupping and buckling. I had several plumbers and appliance repair folks checking for leaks and there were none. I called Southern Climate Solutions and the owner, Mike Murphy, clearly explained the root cause of the moisture issue. He and his team did their “mitigation magic” and 6 weeks later, I saw a total transformation in my floors. I had an estimate of about $1200 to repair the floor initially, but now only a couple of boards will need to be replaced. The house is much more comfortable and I am even saving on electric costs. I couldn’t be happier with the results!

Pensacola Homeowner

We reached out to Southern Climate Solutions to help us with our crawlspace, that was so wet and humid that it was causing our original 1960’s hardwood flooring to buckle repeatedly. From the very first call Mike was professional, responsive and thoroughly answered all of my (many) questions, explaining how he could fix our problem permanently. Within days his team installed a full water barrier and dehumidifier, which I’m happy to say has solved the problem completely, just like he said it would. His team has continued to monitor the dehumidification progress and kept me informed every step of the way. I’m so grateful we found Mike and his team and would highly recommend Southern Climate Solutions for anyone who has a crawlspace.
