What Our Customers Say
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!
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.
As an active social venue serving hundreds of members and guests daily, air quality is a big concern. We needed an effective solution to prevent mold and musty odors and wanted to ensure our facility was healthy, cool and comfortable. Southern Climate Solutions delivered. Since the installation of our system, we are beyond impressed. Our facility is noticably improved and the musty odors have subsided. Members have noticed a big change, too! This is the added level of safety and peace of mind we needed for our employees, members and guests.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How does moisture affect my crawl space and my home?
In a vented, unsealed crawlspace, humidity creates excess moisture which leads to mold growth, wood rot and moisture seeking pests. A wicking effect pulls the unhealthy air from the crawlspace into the home, creating an unhealthy indoor space.
Shouldn't my AC take care of humidity in my home?
While AC removes some moisture, it is not effective or efficient in extreme sub-tropical environments, where excessive humidity is present 12-months a year. The AC is only dealing with moisture when the AC is engaged, which is not enough to keep indoor relative humidity at safe levels. Our commercial grade dehumidifiers are stand-alone units that work independently of HVAC.
My wood floors are cupping. Is that from too much moisture?
We often see cupping wood floors in home with crawl spaces. This is realted to excess moisture being wicked up from the crawl space into the home. We have had success in laying down cupping wood floors with our encapsulation & dehumidification application.
Why does my house smell musty?
Musty odors are a sign of active mold spores. Mold grows when indoor relative humidity is above 60%. To prevent mold growth, you must control the moisture levels in your home / structure.
What are the signs of high humidity and excess moisture in my home?
High humidity and excess moisture cause many hazards inside your space. Signs include:
- Visual mold or fungi
- Musty odors
- Excess condensation on windows in cooler months
- Dripping vents
- Cupping wood floors
- Bubbling or peeling paint
- High energy costs
- Chronic allergy-like symptoms / sinusitis
- Respiratory issues
- Skin irritations
What are healthy levels of indoor relative humidity?
Healthy levels of indoor relative humidity for the Southern Region are between 40%-50%. A hygrometer is a good device to have to monitor indoor RH. If your indoor space is above 60%, conditions exist for mold growth and poor ondoor air quality.
How will dehumidification affect my electric bill?
A drier space is naturally cooler. Often times our customers see a 20%-30% savings on their energy bills. After a proper dehumidification solution is installed, many people move their thermostat from 68 degrees to 77 degrees in the summer months and are cool and comforable.
