What Causes Moisture in Your Basement?
It’s easy to spot water leaking through a crack in your basement, but most homeowners don’t know that there is a potential for water issues without heavy rains or obvious signs of standing water. At Healthy Way, we try to educate our clients on the real causes of water in your basement. Here are two of the most common reasons why you might need basement waterproofing in Allentown:
The “Clay Bowl” Effect
It might not be evident on the surface, but many basements are built in a below-grade dip, which is surrounded by backfill. Because backfill is made up of soil that was removed during foundation digging, it creates an empty shape or “bowl” effect. Once the foundation is finished, this loose soil is placed back around the foundation. Unfortunately, soil of this consistency is more absorbent and porous than the undisturbed soil around it, which is hard-packed and less porous. When rain or thunderstorms occurs, the soil closest to your home becomes saturated, putting pressure on your basement walls.
This kind of pressure affects homeowners with property built below the water table or on a hillside where water runs down a hill. When the soil around your foundation becomes saturated, it will expand and put intense pressure on the walls of your foundation and basement. This pressure can create cracks, giving water an easy route into your basement.
How Healthy Way Solves Your Basement Waterproofing Needs
Having a wet basement not only puts your health at risk, it lowers the value of your home and makes it more difficult to sell. The good news? We offer a number of waterproofing services and products to solve your problems fast. A few of our solutions include:
- Sump pumps
- Perimeter drainage systems
- Doorway drainage systems
- High-strength washer hoses
- Floor and wall crack repair
- Replacement windows
- Flood protection for your water heater
When you use Healthy Way for basement waterproofing in New Jersey, you can rest easy knowing that all our systems come with a written, lifetime warranty. This warranty is transferrable, meaning you can re-establish your home’s value and give future owners confidence knowing that their new home is protected.
The Healthy Way Basement Waterproofing Process
Because every home is different, your basement waterproofing solution could be vastly different than that of your next-door neighbor. Many factors play a part when it comes to keeping your basement dry and safe for living. As a general rule, we approach each issue with a “prevention over repair” mindset. By taking this stance, we give our clients a more cost-effective, long-term resolution. We’re not in the business of putting a “Band-Aid” on your water problem – we want to fix your issue completely, so you don’t have to worry about recurring problems. Our effective basement waterproofing systems include a mix of the following strategies:
Interior waterproofing methods usually start with our team ensuring that any holes or cracks in your basement floors, walls, and windows are sealed properly. Sealing cracks in your basement is an important first step since this is usually the first place where water can enter your home. Our sealants keep your basement dry and help prevent more moisture from finding its way into your home. Interior waterproofing strategies like these also help lower humidity levels in your basement. While sealants and other interior waterproofing strategies help correct initial issues, they don’t usually solve the underlying problem causing leaks in your basement. Those issues are most often found outside your home.
Once our team is finished with your interior waterproofing, we will move to the exterior of your home. Waterproofing the outside of your home is often a more complex, nuanced goal. Because of the difficult nature of exterior waterproofing, we recommend you consult with our team of professionals before tackling the job on your own. Generally speaking, our team beings the outdoor waterproofing process by excavating the soil around your home’s foundation. Once we remove the soil surrounding your foundation, our experts will apply a polymer-based sealant to any cracks we discover. This sealant is a long-term solution and should remain intact for the life of your home. While the Healthy Way team solves your outdoor moisture problems, we will also check your downspouts, to make sure they aren’t clogged. An inefficient gutter system does a poor job of directing water away from your home’s foundation, which can cause more moisture to seep into your basement over time.
One of the most common reasons that people need basement waterproofing in cityname is because they have a poor drainage system. A proper drainage system is paramount in keeping your basement dry and your family safe. These systems are meant to direct water away from your home and come in many forms, from French Drains to simple systems like ground soil. If you’re thinking of installing a complex drainage system, save yourself some time and check the soil around your foundation first to make sure it isn’t retaining moisture. If a more complex system like a sump pump is required, it’s best to work with certified professionals like those at Healthy Way, to make sure your drainage system is installed correctly.
WHICH WATERPROOFING SOLUTION IS RIGHT FOR ME?
Because every home is different, it’s hard to say what kind of waterproofing solution is right for your situation. Most homeowners require a combination of interior and exterior waterproofing. There are dozens of factors that come into play when it comes to waterproofing your home, so the answer to your problem may be different than your neighbor’s. The good news is that Healthy Way is fully equipped to handle whatever moisture issue you’re having. We will work tirelessly to make certain your basement is dry, mold-free, and safe to enjoy. That way, you can get back to living life rather than worrying about mold growth or foundation damage.Contact Us

A comment by President Joe Biden is encouraging airlines to hope that travel between the United States and Europe could be expanded in time for last-minute, late-summer vacation trips.
At a news conference with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Biden was asked about ending restrictions that bar most European visitors from entering the United States.
Biden said Thursday that a team that is advising him on the pandemic “brought that subject up. It’s in the process of (considering) how soon we can lift the ban ... and I will be able to answer that question to you within the next several days.”
An official with the U.S. Travel Association, a trade group for the broader tourism industry, praised Biden\'s comments.
“The science says we can safely reopen international travel now, particularly for countries that have made considerable progress toward vaccinating their citizens," said Tori Emerson Barnes, the travel group\'s executive vice president of policy, citing studies that concluded there is a low risk of transmitting the virus during flights. “Each day that outdated restrictions on travel exist wreaks economic damage on our nation."
Airlines for America, a trade group representing major U.S. carriers, said “the time for action is now" to reopen to international visitors. The group noted that the U.S. allows travel to and from Mexico, where less than one-third of the population is vaccinated, while severely restricting travel from Canada and the United Kingdom, two countries with relatively high vaccination rates.
The rise and prevalence of COVID-19 variants in Europe, especially the delta mutation that is also spreading throughout the U.S., has caused the Biden administration to tread slowly about increasing transatlantic travel.
Last month, Secretary of State Antony Blinken said the administration was anxious to restore travel “as fully and quickly as possible,” but said he couldn\'t put a date on reopening the country. "We have to be guided by the science, by medical expertise.”
Most of continental Europe has relaxed restrictions on Americans who are fully vaccinated, although the United Kingdom still requires quarantines for most visitors arriving from the U.S. Airlines say, however, that the lack of two-way travel is limiting the number of flights they can offer and seats they can sell.
In recent months, U.S. airlines have started new service to European countries that are open to American visitors. Delta launched new or resumed service to Greece, Iceland and Croatia, which opened early to vaccinated foreigners. In some cases, Americans who tested negative for the virus were able to skip quarantine requirements that were in place for other visitors.
Delta Air Lines CEO Ed Bastian said this week that bookings by Americans surged when those countries reopened and others followed.
“The problem is, there are only Americans that we are carrying in (to Europe) and carrying out," Bastian told The Associated Press.
With most Europeans unable to enter the U.S., Delta has been forced to keep its transatlantic capacity at around half the level it was before the pandemic, he said.

Player of the Year: Joe Meidling, Notre Dame, Jr.
Meidling showed off his exceptional faceoff skills in the early days of his freshman season in 2019, and has been expanding his role ever since. That year, he won 125 of 172 at the X, but was never called upon to be part of the offense unless a won draw led him directly to the cage. Meidling scored one goal as a frosh.
This spring, Meidling was fabulous at the X - claiming 224 of 254 for an .881 win percentage - and also quite dangerous a little closer to the cage. The Towson commit scored 33 goals and added 15 assists to help the Irish finish 11-3.
Meidling turned in three perfect outings at X this season, in victories over Hopewell Valley, Robbinsville and Hightstown. In a 13-6 win over Princeton May 27, he won 21 of 23 draws and also netted four goals and assisted on two for a season-high six points.
Coach/Team of the Year: Carl Schubauer, Allentown
The Redbirds’ opening game this season against Notre Dame was less of a loss than it was a teaching tool for Schubauer.
Following that 13-7 setback, Allentown would win its next 10 games, one of them a 7-6 comeback win against that same Notre Dame squad. The Redbirds’ winning streak was snapped May 25 by Princeton, 11-10, and their only other loss came against fifth-ranked Rumson-Fair Haven, 20-5, in the South, Group 2 semifinals. Allentown finished 13-3.
That’s a big improvement from 10-6 in 2019 and a giant leap from the three losing seasons preceding that campaign.
Schubauer called to a dependable group of seniors this year to do much of the heavy lifting - such as goalie Mike Marcucci, faceoff man Dirk DePompo, defenseman Nick Hassett, and scorers Liam DeLorenzo, Jack Kulpa and Crue Maglione - but he also incorporated a number of promising underclassmen into key roles. Among the solid group of juniors this spring were offensive sparks Jake Raff, Jake Searing and Ethan Shaltis, and pole Sal Belardino.

Why does Deivi Garcia have 8.80 ERA in Triple-A? MLB scout, Yankees weigh in

Yankees manager Aaron Boone probably wasn’t in the best mood late Friday night when he returned to his Boston hotel dealing with another loss to the Red Sox. A glutton for punishment, the skipper woke up Saturday morning and watched video of the Yankees’ No. 1 pitching prospect’s latest horror show.

Deivi Garcia wasn’t good this season when he was called up from Triple-A to make two starts with the Yankees and the 22-year-old righty has been worse in most of his nine outings with Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
Facing Lehigh Valley on Friday night in Allentown, Pa., Garcia was roughed up for five runs over two innings and his Triple-A ballooned some more up 8.80.
If you think that’s bad, check out his numbers over his last four starts: 8 2/3 innings, 18 hits, 18 runs, six walks, 10 strikeouts.
“It’s definitely been a struggle this last month for him,” Boone said. “Just really struggling a little bit with his command. Stuff ticks up and down. It’s a couple good pitches, a couple non-competitive pitches.
“I think he’s struggling a little bit in his delivery, which ultimately is affecting his command, which is really what’s probably getting him in the most trouble from some of the outings that I’ve watched.”
A National League scout also noticed delivery issues when recently witnessing one of Garcia’s outings. He’s down on Garcia, whom he gave high grades in past seasons.
“Deivi Garcia has gone so far backwards that it’s sad to watch,” the scout told NJ Advance Media with a request to remain anonymous so that he could speak freely. “The Yankees changed his delivery and they’re trying to teach him this flat sweeping slider that’s not effective. He had a plus curveball that he’s not throwing it as much. Honestly, I don’t know what the Yankees are doing.
“I think a lot of this is in an effort for Garcia to throw harder. His delivery is very Driveline-like where it’s over-rotational, and when you watch him pitch from his balance point, he flies open. The big thing on Driveline is to land on your front leg and kind of load your body forward, but Garcia is so over-rotational that he spins off, hits his leg and falls off to first base on every pitch.”
The Yankees are being patient with Garcia, who showed enough promise last summer when first getting his feet wet in the big leagues that he was the choice to be the opener for a postseason game. He’s already been called up twice this season to make spot starts, and neither went well. He walked three while allowing two runs over four innings in a loss at Baltimore on April 26, then was blitzed for five runs, four earned, on five hits and one walk over 4 1/3 innings in a loss at Detroit on May 29.
In Triple-A, Garcia allowed just one unearned run over 10 innings in a span of two mid-May starts, but he’s been torched for 29 earned runs over 19 1/3 innings in his other seven.
These struggles along with fellow prospect Clarke Schmidt still rehabbing his way back from a spring training arm injury have robbed the Yankees of quality young rotation depth that they hoped to have this season.
“Not ideal,” Boone said. “But you also understand that in Deivi’s case, we’re talking about a very young man who’s kind of rocketed through the system.
“So part of this is growing pains and finding your delivery and learning how to deal with certain struggles and adversities that you’ve got to make along the way while also being able to make adjustments and the necessary corrections to get yourself right.”
