Controlling moisture that enters buildings is a critical factor in protecting the stucture, its contents, components, and employees from mold and other moisture related problems.
For Commercial Real Estate, Municpal Buildings, Educational Institutions and Industrial Facilities in the Southeast, excess indoor moisture can be difficult to overcome. Even the best HVAC systems can struggle with moisture in a sub-tropical environment. High indoor relative humidity can lead to a range of issues, from high energy costs, to mold, to unhealthy workers.  We specialize in providing effective moisture control solutions to avoid Sick Building Syndrome. If your structure has visible mold, musty odors or employees suffering from allergy-like symptoms when in the workplace, then it’s time to consider how a dehumidification solution can help safeguard your facility.   

Solutions is in our name. With a focus on IAQ and mold prevention, we will work with you to develop a customized plan that meets your specific needs, and we’ll keep you informed every step of the way.

We use commercial grade dehumidification equipment to create a controlled indoor environment to ensure that your space is healthy, efficient and safe.

At our company, we take pride in providing top-notch service and equipment maintenance complemented with fair pricing. We’re dedicated to helping create a safe, healthy space, and we’ll ensure that you are completely satisfied with our services and results. 


Indoor Air Quality

Uncontrolled indoor moisture can cause major damage to the building structure, furnishings and to finish materials like floors, walls and ceilings. Uncontrolled moisture can trigger mold growth which not only damages the facility, but can lead to health and performance problems for building occupants. Mold is typically only a problem indoors when there is excess moisture.

Primary causes of indoor moisture problems in buildings in the Southeast include:


  • Moisture-laden air entering the building
  • Use of building materials that are repeatedly or deeply wetted before the building is fully enclosed
  • Poor control of rain resulting in roof and flashing leaks
  • Condensation on cool surfaces

Controlling moisture that enters buildings to prevent condensation is a critical factor in protecting buildings from mold and other moisture related problems such as pest infestation and damage to building components.

The term “sick building syndrome” (SBS) is used to describe situations in which building occupants experience acute health and comfort effects that appear to be linked to time spent in a building, but no specific illness or cause can be identified. The complaints may be localized in a particular room or zone, or may be widespread throughout the building. SBS is often the result of the presence of mold due to uncontrolled moisture inside the building.

Indicators of SBS include:
• Building occupants complain of symptoms associated with acute discomfort; headache; eye, nose, or throat irritation; dry cough; dry or itchy skin; dizziness and nausea; difficulty in concentrating; fatigue; and sensitivity to odors, often reporting relief after leaving the building.

In humid climates, dehumidification is recommended to eliminate excess moisture and promote healthy indoor air quality, particualy with increased outside air influence. Experts in moisture control, Southern Climate Solutions can help fix your buildings issues.

The Cost of Moisture Related Issues

Health problems and building damage due to moisture can be extremely expensive. Berkeley Lab estimates that the annual asthma-related medical costs attributable to exposures to dampness and mold total approximately $3.5 billion in the U.S. But many more adverse health outcomes due to damp buildings have been reported, each with associated costs of its own. And damage to the building itself is also costly. Building owners and tenants bear a significant proportion of these costs, including:

• Absenteeism due to illnesses such as asthma.

• Reduced productivity due to moisture-related health and comfort problems.

• Increased insurance risk, repair and replacement costs associated with corroded structural fasteners, wiring and damaged moisture-sensitive materials.

• Repair and replacement costs associated with damaged furniture, products and supplies.

• Loss of use of building spaces after damage and during repairs.

• Increased insurance and litigation costs related to moisture damage claims.


Energy Efficiency Backed By Data

There is no debate about it – controlling moisture can make your building more energy-efficient, less costly to heat and cool, more comfortable, and prevent mold and fungi growth.

In the Southeast, extreme humidity 12-months a year causes health hazards, structural issues and high energy consumption.

All too often, turning the thermostat down in the summer months is used to try and control humidity, an ineffecitve and less than effiicient solution leading to higher energy costs and a cold, clammy environment that promotes mold growth.

With commercial dehumidification, excess moisture is removed from a space, leaving it naturally cooler and more comfortable.

Through our data collection, case studies have revealed the significance of dehumidifcation and how removing excess indoor moisture affects comfort, naturally leading to raising the thermostat and energy savings.


case study data
The inverse relationship between temperature and humidity is evident in the above case study of a commercial facility in Pensacola. Prior to dehumidifcation, mold and poor indoor air quality, along with high energy bills was standard. After the installation of commercial dehumidication units, average relative humidity went from 85% to 50% while indoor temperature was able to be comfortably raised from 65 to 72 degrees F, saving on energy costs. Mold issues were resolved and musty odors were immediately eliminated. In addition, the comfort level of the facility was greatly enhanced, and employees saw a noticable decrease in allergy-like symtoms.

Benefits of Commercial Dehumidification

Reduced Energy Costs: Drier air is naturally cooler, allowing for the thermostat to be raised in the summer months.

Lower Maintenance Costs: Reduced thermal load can lead to lower HVAC maintenance costs and protecting the structure and contents from moisture can eliminate costly repairs to moisture-damaged flooring and equipment prone to corrosion. 

Eliminates Unnecessary Expense: By keeping indoor relative humidity healthy levels – between 40% – 50%, mold cannot grow and thrive, eliminating the potential for costly remediation expense. 

Improved Indoor Air Quality: Dehumidification prevents mold, mildew, and other allergens, leading to better air quality and a healthier indoor environment for employees and visitors.

Increased Productivity: Dehumidification creates a cool, comfortable space versus a cold, clammy feel. Many studies reveal that employees are higher performing in spaces at 72 degrees with 50% RH. 

Reduces Virus Transmission: Studies show that at 50% relative humidity, airborne viruses become less virulent and less transmissable.
