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 Hoboken:
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

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

The Christmas Tree Board website helps you find where to buy or even to cut down a tree locally. Below is a list just for Hoboken.
HOBOKEN, NJ — People in Hoboken 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 Hoboken have plenty of options, sortable by ZIP code and by type, on the Real Christmas Tree Board website. They include:
14th Street Garden Center, 793 Jersey Ave., Jersey City, just south of Hoboken border
Home improvement stores:
Hoboken's 14th Street Farmers Market had fresh-cut trees last year.

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
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.
Christmas trees were first used by devout Christians in Germany. 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.

An attempt to remove Hoboken Councilman Phil Cohen from office via a recall election is dead in the water after the group behind the effort decided to focus instead on the recent school board election.
The recall attempt was initially started back in May, where a notice of intent was filed by a three-person committee seeking to boot Cohen, a freshman councilman elected to represent the northwest-based Fifth Ward in 2019 with the support of Mayor Ravi Bhalla.
The committee of Rebecca Cohen, Barry Grossman and Perry Belfiore, a longtime local politico and a critic of Bhalla, said in a statement that Cohen had “not represented us as his constituents” and that he had “prioritized special interests before our own.” The recall attempt was first reported by Hudson County View.
Belfiore told The Jersey Journal that they decided to drop the recall attempt because an election for it would’ve been close to the recent school board election, and that they instead wanted to “express its angst to defeat the school board ticket that proposed the monstrous new high school,” referencing the failed $241 million high school referendum.
“All the eggs were put into that basket, and as you can see it turned into an omelet, and so it happened,” he said.
The recent school board election saw the “Leadership That Listens” slate, which was endorsed by Bhalla and had itself in favor of the referendum, sweep the three available seats earlier this month against another slate that was critical of the referendum and two independents.
The official deadline to submit the petitions for the recall — which would’ve required signatures from 25% of the registered voters in the Fifth Ward — could not be determined Tuesday. Cohen told The Jersey Journal that the deadline is Nov. 28, while the City Clerk’s office was checking on the date.
Belfiore said that they are now looking to “lick their wounds and plan to take over the world.”
“In politics, if you don’t smile, you cry,” he said. “There’s a lot to smile about, and an equal amount to cry about.”
With the recall attempt dead, Cohen will not face any risk of losing his seat until next year, where all of the six individual ward seats will be up for election.

The city said in a message, "The Office of Emergency Management is monitoring the storm as flooding could be possible in low-lying areas. Any intense rainfall or greater than 0.8 inch per hour may result in flooding in low-lying areas."
In recent years, Hoboken drivers have had to be rescued from their cars in flash floods. Elsewhere, drivers and their families have drowned in their cars during flash floods.
The city listed its low-lying, flood-prone intersections.
What's The Forecast?
Forecasters believe as much as an inch of rain could fall Friday, a decreased amount from the original prediction.
The Office of Emergency Management posted “No Parking Signs” in flood-prone areas, which should be taken as advisories, the city said. Cars there will not be towed, the city said.
Please report flooded intersections and clogged drain inlets by calling the NHSA Hotline at (866) 689-3970, the city said.
The city said that wind gusts of up to 45 m.p.h. could occur Friday. Residents should secure loose objects.
Damaging winds could blow down trees and power lines, resulting in power outages. Report power outages and downed wires to PSEG at https://nj.myaccount.pseg.com/...
City Plans Flood Warning System
The city of Hoboken ran a meeting Wednesday to lay out its planned Automated Flood Warning System. This winter, the city will install automated flood barricades and associated warning signage at some of the city's most flood-prone intersections in western Hoboken.

Hoboken released its newest COVID hospitalizations, case, and vaccination numbers this week, including news of a resident who passed away.
HOBOKEN, NJ — The city of Hoboken released updated COVID death and hospitalization statistics Monday, including another resident who passed away due to the virus.
Mayor Ravi Bhalla said, "Unfortunately, another resident, age 81, passed away. My heart goes out to his friends and loved ones. The city has now lost a total of 68 individuals since the pandemic began."
He said that Hoboken University Medical Center is currently treating eight people with COVID-19, three of whom live in the city.
As typically happens when people spend more time inside during fall, hospitalization rates have increased from the summer months. In June, the local hospital was treating just two patients for COVID. Last January, they were treating 40.
Statewide, numbers are way down from the first year of the pandemic, but there is an uptick. There are 1,069 people currently hospitalized in New Jersey who are positive for COVID, 100 in intensive care and 37 of those on ventilators. One new confirmed COVID death was reported statewide on Monday and another nine Tuesday.
Last year, cases rose steeply during the holidays.
New Booster For New Variants, And Guidance For Children
A new booster was introduced recently that protects from new variants of the virus as well as the past variants. Residents can get the vaccine (and tests) at both doctors' offices and pharmacies, but can also look for the city's clinics.
The city scheduled an updated booster clinic Tuesday from 4-7 p.m., offering the updated Pfizer booster to people 5 and older who got their last vaccine two months ago or more. The updated Moderna booster is available to those 6 and older. More information on the new boosters and clinic times is here: www.hobokennj.gov/medicinemanvaccine.
Regarding children, the state and CDC have released guidance on the new booster for those age 12 and over. See more details here.
To find more Hoboken and Hudson County sites, go to www.hudsoncovidvax.org/.
The city said that the current regional Community Transmission level is Medium Risk.
As of Oct. 17, these were the cases reported in Hoboken for the previous week, by age:
Positive Cases By Age (Reported)
Vaccination Rate Update
Below is the vaccination rate for Hoboken, according to the state:
All ages: > 90% (first dose)
12 and over: >90% (first dose)
18 and over: >90% (first dose)
30 and over: >90% (first dose)
65 and over: >90% (first dose)
All ages: 84% (second dose)
12 and over: 86% (second dose)
18 and over: 83% (second dose)
30 and over: >90% (second dose)
65 and over: >90% (second dose)
NOTE: The state has not provided municipalities with booster numbers.
What If You Test Positive Now?
Medical professionals have said that as with flu shots, the vaccine reduces the risk of hospitalization and death.
But you may still test positive. The CDC advises people with any symptoms to take a test as soon as possible, particularly those in high risk groups, as there are new treatments (such as Paxlovid) that can be effective if administered in the first few days. If positive, talk with a medical professional about what to do. READ: What Happens If I Test Positive?
