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 Farmingdale:
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

There are plenty of options for shoppers looking to bring a real Christmas tree home this year near Howell and Farmingdale.
HOWELL-FARMINGDALE, NJ — People in the Howell area who prefer fresh-cut Christmas trees — whether they cut down trees themselves or buy from a retail lot — shouldn’t have any trouble finding them in 2022, according to a survey of Christmas tree growers by an industry trade group.
The prediction by the Real Christmas Tree Board comes after a survey of 55 wholesalers that supply two-thirds of the market for fresh trees and 1,500 U.S. adults ages 21-49.
“The real Christmas tree industry met demand last year, and it will meet demand this year,” Marsha Gray, executive director of the Real Christmas Tree Board, said in a news release. “This is essentially a year without surprises.”
Residents of the area have plenty of options, sortable by ZIP code and by type, on the Real Christmas Tree Board website. There is also a website for the New Jersey Christmas Tree Growers Association.
Live Christmas tree options include:
Garden and retail centers:
Southard Fire Departmentalso is receiving their shipment of Christmas Trees Saturday, Nov. 26 and will start selling that afternoon; 4611 US-9, Howell; 732-364-3399.
Home improvement stores:
Real Trees May Be Pricier
Trees, like everything else, may cost a little more this year. Tree growers answering the Real Christmas Tree Board’s survey said growing costs have increased. About 36 percent of respondents said costs were up 11 percent to 15 percent compared to last year, while 27 percent said costs increased 16 to 20 percent. Another 10 percent said the year-over-year increase in production costs was more than 21 percent.
As a result, 71 percent of growers said they would likely increase wholesale prices. That means trees could cost anywhere from 5 percent to 20 percent or more.
Consumers seem to be taking the expected price hikes in stride.
“While our grower survey tells us wholesale prices are likely to be higher for real Christmas trees this year, our consumer survey tells us people expected as much,” Gray said in the news release. “The good news is fans of real Christmas trees say they believe the trees are worth the price, and they are willing to pay more this year if necessary to get one — and that’s not a surprise either.”
Growers’ expectations of a healthy season are also tempered by fears of supply chain disruptions, the No. 1 concern of 44 percent of growers. About 35 percent said their top concern is that inflation-strapped consumers will cut real Christmas trees from their lists this year. About 21 percent of respondents cited labor availability concerns.
The Origin Of Christmas Trees
The origin of the Christmas tree can be traced to long before the advent of Christianity, according to History.com.
In ancient times, it was commonly believed the sun was a god. It appeared to be sick as daylight waned in the winter, but evergreens thriving during winter were a reminder that the sun would become strong again and lush greenery and warmth would return.
Evergreen trees were seen as a symbol of eternal life among ancient Egyptians, Hebrews and Chinese. Pagans throughout Europe used evergreens in their homes to represent fertility and new life.
Christmas trees were first used by devout Christians in Germany. The The 16th century Protestant reformer Martin Luther is believed to have added lighted candles to trees. He was composing a sermon as he walked home on a winter evening and was struck by the sight of stars twinkling above the evergreens, and recreated the scene in a tree in his family’s main room.

Farmers Market Harks Back To Medieval Times In Farmingdale

FARMINGDALE, NJ — The monthly farmers market in town is never just about fruits and vegetables. And if you visit on Saturday, you might think you traveled back to Medieval times.
Each month, the volunteer Recreation Commission in this small borough in the center of much larger Howell Township goes all out to present a themed market. There have been markets with fairies and flamingos in past months.
This Saturday, be prepared to see knights and unicorns and various other signs that you may not be in Farmingdale anymore. But you will be.
The Medieval Market starts at 9 a.m. at 11 Asbury Ave. at the Farmingdale Community Center.
The day starts early with these events:
This month's event is sponsored by Nova Heating & Air.
Amanda Levers, one of the volunteer organizers, said the town is also asking that attendees bring non-perishable food items for Joshua House, a ministry in Farmingdale that collects food, clothing and other items.
Levers said the Medieval theme will be enhanced with the services of Markland, a nonprofit historical educational organization, based in Maryland that operates from Virginia through the New York City area. Markland performs re-enactments as well as providing cultural information about the period.
And be prepared to hear some Old English. The greeting, "Wes Tu Hal!" literally translates to the modern English, "How do you hail?" The question was a typical greeting in Saxon England, the organization's website says.
Members of Markland "re-enact medieval life by constructing and using reproductions of the period's accouterments, and have a lot of fun educating the public (and each other) with what they have learned in the process," the website adds.
On a softer note, the Fun Pony Parties company will provide the "unicorn" rides, Levers said.
As with every market day, there will be vendors on site, music, food and even a "Lords and Ladies Tea Time," Levers said. But the tea party, being held on picnic blankets on the trail at the Community Center, is already fully booked, she added.
Levers said parking may be at a premium because she has already received 700 responses on Facebook, but attendees can park at the school on Academy Street or on side streets.
Kinship adoption: How Farmingdale family navigated three-year legal roller coaster
In March 2019, Chale Ashley took in her 12-year-old nephew Ashton to live with her in Brick. Ashton’s mother, as Chale described it, was no longer able to properly care for him.A few months later, Ashton approached his aunt with an idea.“Hey, what if you adopted me?” Ashton recalls saying. “At first she was a little hesitant, but I talked to her about it and after a while she was like, ‘Yes, this is the right direction.’”It took nearly three years to come to fruiti...
In March 2019, Chale Ashley took in her 12-year-old nephew Ashton to live with her in Brick. Ashton’s mother, as Chale described it, was no longer able to properly care for him.
A few months later, Ashton approached his aunt with an idea.
“Hey, what if you adopted me?” Ashton recalls saying. “At first she was a little hesitant, but I talked to her about it and after a while she was like, ‘Yes, this is the right direction.’”
It took nearly three years to come to fruition. The adoption was finalized last month. The process was a legal and emotional roller coaster. At one point an anonymous do-gooder slipped $1,000 in an envelope under Chale’s door, to help her cover associated costs. It worked out in the end, but Chale and Ashton, who is now 15, would like to shed some light on the journey for those considering kinship guardianship or kinship adoption.
“I didn’t understand any of the law,” Chale said. “A big thing is finding the resources.”
Helping so many:Love 'flows like a river' for Oceanport foster mom who helped raise over 700 kids
According to Advocates for Children of New Jersey, a Newark-based nonprofit that helped author New Jersey law in this area, “kinship care — placing children with relatives rather than non-relative foster parents — is associated with significant benefits for children and youth, including improved mental and behavioral health.”
With that in mind, in July 2021 Gov. Phil Murphy signed legislation to prioritize the increasing of kinship placements for at-risk children by the state’s Department of Children and Families.
“Given the new law and the focus of the department on relatives, which is a very positive move forward, people need to learn more and ask more questions,” said Mary Coogan, an attorney who is vide president of Advocates for Children of New Jersey. “It can get a little tricky.”
How did it work out? Revisiting the Toms River family who took in six homeless siblings
Chale Ashley experienced that firsthand. After filing for emergency temporary custody of her sister's son Ashton in the spring of 2019, which became temporary custody shortly thereafter, she was granted kinship guardianship in April 2021.
That gave her some rights without relinquishing the rights of Ashton’s birth mother.
But Ashton “really wanted the stability” of kinship adoption, Chale Ashley said. Partly because the pandemic slowed the legal machinery to a crawl, the entire process stretched over nearly three years. It took a village to navigate the thicket.
Help came from Toms River-based Children’s Mobile Response and Stabilization services, which provided short-term counseling. It came from the nonprofit Ocean Partnership for Children, which provided long-term counseling and was “a great resource for the family’s therapeutic needs throughout this whole process,” Chale Ashley said.
It came from The Village of Children and Families, a Point Pleasant Beach nonprofit that provided clothing. It came from the state-run Kinship Navigator program, which covered some expenses and issued a $500 grant toward bedding and other household needs.
The thing is, Chale Ashley had to find this stuff on her own. When it came to legal issues, like who had what rights, she found herself calling the family court’s clerk with questions.
“Sometimes we don’t spend enough time really talking with the kinship legal guardian and the parent about their new relationship and making sure people understand it,” Advocates for Children of New Jersey’s Coogan said. “The system does not always manage expectations appropriately, making sure that both the parents and caregivers understand what the other is expecting down the road. If we can get people to resources, smaller issues wouldn’t blow up.”
Acts of kindness helped, too. During a retreat with True Life Church, her congregation in Brick, Chale found an envelope with $1,000 under her door. It was the exact amount she needed to pay adoption-related fees.
“It was really amazing,” Ashley said. “I wasn’t even talking about it. We were really grateful.”
Adoption:Ocean County man's search for his birth father turned up so much more
After five months of postponements, the adoption was granted May 18.
“It was very exciting,” Ashton said. “I was also nervous.”
He’s a sophomore at Ambassador Christian Academy in Wall, where Chale is a teacher. Before the hearing he wrote a letter to the judge.
“I was explaining how I wanted to go through with the adoption and how I would be better off with Chale,” Ashton said. “She’s very caring. She listens to my problems. She has a lot of restrictions, but it’s for the best.”
They live in Farmingdale, the two of them and a dog.
“I’m really proud of him,” Chale said of Ashton. “He’s handled all of this with a lot of grace. He wanted to do things different and better.”
The Ashleys have hard-earned advice for anyone exploring kinship guardianship or kinship adoption — or trying to navigate the process.
“Ask a lot of questions,” Chale said. “And don’t give up.”

NEW YORK (WABC) -- Bed Bath & Beyond has released a list of stores that will be closing and it includes several locations in the Tri-State.
The list includes several stores in northern New Jersey, Connecticut and in New York.
None of the New York stores on the list are in New York City. However, locations in Middletown, Mt. Vernon, New Hartford, Plattsburgh and Farmingdale will close.
In New Jersey, the closures include stores in Paramus, Manalapan and Flanders.
In Connecticut, the impacted stores include locations in Stamford and Waterford.
In August, the chain announced a restructuring that includes the closure of around 150 stores, layoffs and a possible stock offering.
The company said it had obtained more than $500 million of new financing and was reducing 20% of its workforce.
Although it is closing 150 namesake stores, it will keep its Buy Buy Baby chain.
Bed Bath & Beyond also said that it would go back to its original strategy of focusing on national brands, instead of pushing its own store labels.
Days after the company's announcement, Gustavo Arnal, the chief financial officer of Bed Bath & Beyond, was found dead after falling from a Manhattan high-rise apartment. A law enforcement source told CNN that he jumped to his death from the 57-story skyscraper.
A man who jumped to his death from a high-rise luxury apartment building in TriBeCa was the chief financial officer of Bed Bath and Beyond.
Bed Bath & Beyond is "profoundly saddened by this shocking loss," a company spokesperson said.
Arnal was named as a defendant in a class action lawsuit accusing him, Ryan Cohen and other large shareholders of engaging in a "pump and dump" scheme to artificially inflate the price of the company's stock.
If you or someone you know is struggling with suicidal thoughts or mental health matters, please call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 988 to connect with a trained counselor or visit the NSPL site.
The CNN Wire contributed to this report.
This condition pops up every other year usually affecting the most children between August and November.
