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 Hazlet:
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

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

Ex-Patrick School star Jonathan Kuminga will be one of 20 players invited to the Green Room for the NBA Draft on July 29 at Barclays Center, according to Jonathan Givony of ESPN.com.
The group of 20 also includes Jalen Green, who played with Kuminga on the G League Ignite team this past season, and three players who played for Kevin Boyle at Montverde (FL) Academy. Boyle is a Clark native who has won six GEICO High School National Championships at Montverde after winning five New Jersey Tournament of Champions titles at St. Patrick High School.
In addition to those 15, Givony reported five other players will also be invited.
The 6-foot-8 Kuminga is a native of the Democratic Republic of Congo who played the 2019-20 season at The Patrick School before opting to play professionally for G League Ignite instead of going to college. He has drawn comparisons to NBA stars Kawhi Leonard and Jaylen Brown.
“He’s built like Kawhi Leonard but he’s just a baby,” said ESPN college basketball analyst Fran Fraschilla, who saw Kuminga work out recently in Orlando.
Three former Montverde stars are also headed to the Green Room, including projected No. 1 overall pick Cade Cunningham of Oklahoma State, Moses Moody of Arkansas and Scottie Barnes of Florida State.
The top four picks in the draft are widely expected to be Cunningham, Green, former USC big man Evan Mobley and former Gonzaga point guard Jalen Suggs, with Kuminga expected to be in the top five or six.
Kuminga is one of several players with New Jersey ties in the mix to be drafted, including former Seton Hall standout Sandro Mamukelashvili, Hazlet native and ex-Ranney School star Scottie Lewis and Newark native and Auburn one-and-done point guard Sharife Cooper, who could earn a Green Room invite.

HOLMDEL, NJ - Following a successful vote of approval from the Holmdel Township School Board, current district athletics supervisor Matt Kukoda has been selected to be new principal of Holmdel High School amid the departure of current principal Brian Schillaci.
Kukoda will assume his new position on July 15.
The incoming administrator has previously served as Supervisor of Curriculum and Instruction in the Wall Public Schools before becoming the Supervisor of Athletics, Health & Physical Education at Holmdel High School in 2020. He holds a master\'s degree in education from Seton Hall University and is currently a doctoral candidate at the same school. Read more: Holmdel School District Welcomes New Athletic Supervisor
Thank you! Let\'s get to work! https://t.co/9Zudq8hqrt— Matt Kukoda (@Matt_KUkoda) July 15, 2021
"Since joining the district, Mr. Kukoda has distinguished himself by demonstrating highly effective leadership and professionalism. Matt\'s leadership skills were particularly impressive given the challenges presented by the Coronavirus pandemic over the last year," said School Board President Vicky Flynn. "He brings a new level of energy and competence to this position and we are confident that Mr. Kukoda will continue to meet our high expectations."
Effective July 1, Brian Schillaci, who formerly served as the Principal at both the Village and Indian Hill Schools, will move from his current position as Principal of the Holmdel High School to become Principal of Indian Hill Elementary School and implement a new math program. Lisa Vitale, Principal at Indian Hill Elementary school, will now serve as co-principal (alongside current principal Art Howard) at Village Elementary School for the 2021-22 school year, where she will work to implement a new reading program.
In a news release, the Holmdel school district noted that Interim Superintendent Lee Seitz personally reviewed resumes of dozens of candidates for Kudoka\'s position, but was continually drawn-back to Mr. Kukoda\'s integrity, intelligence and energy, and his established reputation as a leader within the Holmdel school community.
"I\'ve hired dozens of principals over the years, and rarely do you see someone so prepared to take the next step in his or her career," said Seitz. "His strong grasp of educational issues, his experience working in Holmdel, and his willingness to make tough decisions made Matt the right candidate to lead the high school into its next half century of existence."
The district has begun a search for a new Supervisor of Athletics, Health and Physical Education.
The district\'s recent reorganization reportedly aims to close the gap on learning loss related to school disruption caused by the ongoing pandemic, according to an emailed statement from the school district. New initiatives for the upcoming school year include a reading program, the step-up program, a science program, programs for gifted and talented students and additional special services.
"There is no question that some students have experienced varying degrees of learning loss over the last year due to pandemic-related school interruptions. The district is committed to ensuring that any student who fell behind over the last year will get the specialized attention they need in order to catch up," said Seitz.
"Mr. Schillaci and Mrs. Vitale have demonstrated leadership abilities and the district believes their experienced leadership is crucial to the successful implementation of our new programs and, more importantly, restoring the learning loss that our students encountered as a result of the pandemic."

The township committee will introduce several proposed ballot questions at the next meeting regarding the library and the current tax rate.
HOLMDEL, NJ - Holmdel\'s primary governing body is slated to introduce several proposed ballot questions at its next meeting, including if an open space tax increase is necessary and if the Holmdel Library should split from the Monmouth County Library System.
Each public question will appear on the November general election ballot if approved. Ballot questions must be sent to the county in August.
Open Space Tax Increase
According to the July 13 meeting agenda, one public question proposed seeks to increase the annual tax levy for the Holmdel Open Space Trust Fund. If approved by voters, the township committee will hold a subsequent public hearing to determine the allocation of the funds.
The question will appear as follows:
"Should Holmdel increase the levy for the existing Holmdel Open Space, Recreation, Floodplain Protection, and Farmland and Historic Preservation Trust Fund, from the currently approved and implemented annual levy of two-and-one half cents per $100 of equalized valuation to three-and-one-half cents per $100 of equalized valuation, for any or all of the statutory purposes set forth in N.J.S.A. 40:12-15.7(a)?"
According to meeting documents, the township committee is also seeking to have the following explanatory statement presented alongside the public question:
"In 1998, Holmdel voters approved the establishment of a Township Open Space Trust Fund, with a dedicated tax levy of $.01 per $100 of equalized valuation. In 2000, voters approved an increase in the collection rate to $.025 per $100 in equalized valuation. This referendum seeks voter approval for an increase in the dedicated tax levy by one cent to $.035 per $100 in equalized valuation. The increase would fund various purposes such as additional acquisitions of open space and improvements to open space and parkland properties."
Increase Benefits For First Responders
Another public question on the agenda seeks to increase benefits for volunteer first responders under the Emergency Services Volunteer Length of Service Award Program Act ("LOSAP"), which was first authorized by Holmdel voters in 2002.
The program was "established to reward volunteer members of the Holmdel Township Fire Department and First Aid Squad for their loyal, diligent, and devoted services to the residents of the Township of Holmdel," according to meeting documents.
While Holmdel\'s LOSAP program currently provides an annual contribution of $1,150 per person, the ballot question would increase the LOSAP program annual contribution to the current maximum allowable by law ($1,580 per person), and to authorize future cost of living adjustments without the need for voter approval.
The question will appear as follows:
"Should the Township of Holmdel increase the benefits under the Emergency Services Volunteer Length of Services Award Program Act from the currently authorized amount of $1,150 per volunteer to the current maximum allowable by law for Holmdel\'s program, Page 186 of 212$1,580 per volunteer, and further authorize automatic cost of living adjustments in future years?"
Charter Study Commission
Yet another public question to be introduced on July 13 seeks to probe whether a charter study commission could be elected to study Holmdel\'s current form of government and consider a new charter or improvements.
"The Township Committee believes that Holmdel voters would benefit from a public question on whether to explore alternative forms of municipal government, including options that provide for the direct election of the Mayor, rather than the current system that denies voters that opportunity," according to meeting documents.
Leaving Monmouth County Library System
Last but certainly not least, a public question asking whether Holmdel residents wish the township to withdraw from the Monmouth County Library System and establish a Holmdel Free Public Library and Learning Center at Bell Works is on the table.
"A proposed Holmdel Free Public Library would be governed by a Board of Trustees including the Mayor, Superintendent of the Holmdel Township Public Schools, President of the Holmdel Township Board of Education, and trustees appointed by the Mayor," the proposed ordinance reads.
The township committee is also scheduled to hold a public hearing for whether cannabis businesses should be able to operate in the municipality. Two competing ordinances are currently on the agenda: one in favor of cannabis growers, retailers and delivery services, and the other one opposed to all forms of cannabis operations.

A flash flood warning is in effect for Burlington County.
NEW JERSEY — Forecasters predict severe thunderstorms, excessive rainfall and dangerous cloud-to-ground lightning on Monday afternoon, which could bring up to four inches of rain and induce flash flooding in parts of the Garden State.
The National Weather Service estimates that most of the state will see one to three inches of rain, while the northeastern portion of New Jersey may see as much as four inches of precipitation. The heaviest rainfall will occur overnight north of Interstate 195, the agency said.
From 2 p.m. on Monday until 5 a.m. on Tuesday, a flash flood watch will be in effect for 10 New Jersey counties. A flash flood watch is issued when there is a potential for rapid-onset flooding based on current forecasts.
"Heavy rain in a short period of time may cause streams and creeks to rise quickly out of their banks," the National Weather Service said. "There is also the potential for flash flooding across more urbanized areas and those areas with poor drainage."
Here are the affected counties:
A heat advisory has also been issued for three Garden State counties from 11 a.m. on Monday until 8 p.m. on Tuesday. A heat advisory is issued when temperatures are expected to reach 105 to 109 degrees or 100 to 104 degrees within 24 hours.
On Monday and Tuesday, temperatures will hover around the 100-degree mark with temperatures as high as 105, according to the National Weather Service. Tuesday and Wednesday may also see severe thunderstorms, with temperatures expected to remain around the 90s throughout the week, per AccuWeather. There is a high risk of fog in the state on Tuesday.
"Hot temperatures and high humidity may cause heat illnesses to occur," the agency said. "Drink plenty of fluids, stay in an air-conditioned room, stay out of the sun, and check up on relatives and neighbors. Young children and pets should never be left unattended in vehicles under any circumstances."
Here are the affected counties:
"Take extra precautions if you work or spend time outside," the service continued in a statement. "When possible reschedule strenuous activities to early morning or evening. Know the signs and symptoms of heat exhaustion and heat stroke. Wear lightweight and loose fitting clothing when possible. To reduce risk during outdoor work, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration recommends scheduling frequent rest breaks in shaded or air conditioned environments. Anyone overcome by heat should be moved to a cool and shaded location. Heat stroke is an emergency! Call 9-1-1."
In addition, several rounds of showers & thunderstorms this afternoon & evening will result in heavy rain & possible flash flooding. A Flash Flood Watch is in effect for northern NJ from this afternoon through late tonight. #NJwx pic.twitter.com/G3PGnPNUF4— NWS Mount Holly (@NWS_MountHolly) July 12, 2021
