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 Interlaken:
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

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

It’s obvious that once I talk about something on the air or write about it, I can no longer call it a secret. I’ve actually mentioned this on the air before, but sort of in passing, almost praying that no one would notice.
But recently I was given the history about my little private beach and I think it’s something that needs to be shared.
Conners Beach is the little strip of sand that you see along the bay when you arrive (or leave) on the Sea Streak Ferry in Highlands.
Anytime I’ve ever come home from Manhattan on the ferry, I landed at this beach and wondered why it looked so idyllic. Well, it turns out I’m not the only one who discovered it. In fact, the place they call Conners used to be a beach club back in the '50s.
Conners Cedar Grove Hotel was something that dreams were made of. Like a fantasy destination in an old Elvis Presley movie, people met and romanced there, fell in love under the stars and dipped their toes into the calm warm waters of the bay. There was a snack bar and a pool and a legendary hotel dining room where you could order lobsters and cocktails.
There were bungalows along the beach, which have been replaced by apartments and condos and that beautiful piece of land along the Shrewsbury River was sold to Sea Streak.
The road that runs along the old Conners land is now Shore Drive but used to be railroad tracks that brought people from North Jersey and New York to this stunning little piece of beach.
What’s so special about this beach is that it sits along a strip of bay instead of ocean, so the waves lap gently on the shore as if you’re on some deserted Caribbean island.
Running along this pretty little strip of paradise is a gorgeous trail that is part of the Henry Hudson Trail, a paved, 10-foot wide, 24-mile long trail that is a former railroad right-of-way. Some parts have views of surrounding wetlands, streams and fields.
Beginning at Conners, the trail continues along Sandy Hook Bay to Popamora Point on the Atlantic Highlands/Highlands border. Spend the day on this beach and end it with this hike. It’s a little bit of heaven in New Jersey. But shhh. Don’t tell. Let’s keep it to ourselves.

NJ’s first storm of 2022: Major snowfall, poor visibility in South Jersey

Road crews are tackling the snow-covered roads of South Jersey where a half-foot of snow coats the ground.
The snow started falling after 3 a.m. across New Jersey's southernmost counties with a north-south cut-off along the New Jersey Turnpike with almost no snow west of the roadway.
"With over 8.5 inches of snow on the ground in spots, this is South Jersey's snowiest day in almost four years (January 4, 2018). In fact, that's more snow than Atlantic City International Airport has reported over the last two seasons combined," New Jersey 101.5 Chief Meteorologist Dan Zarrow said.
Snowfall totals from the National Weather Service as of 11:30 a.m.:
New Jersey Fast Traffic's Tom Rivers called the roads "slick and sloppy" early Monday afternoon.
The peak of the snowfall has passed and the snow won't move much further north than Monmouth County.
"The heaviest snow is behind us. Accumulating snow should substantially taper down around mid-afternoon, ending completely by dinnertime," Zarrow said.
Visibility was cut to less than a mile in some areas as road crews tried to keep up with the snow reducing speeds on the Turnpike, Garden State Parkway and Atlantic City Expressway.
“We are seeing an accumulation of a slushy mix on our roads. We have already put down salt and we are plowing County roads in areas that need it,” Ocean County road supervisor Scott Waters said. “We will continue to monitor the weather throughout the day and address areas that may be receiving snow or a wintry mix.”
Camden County is also deploying their plows in the battle to keep 1,200 county roads clear of snow and ice.
“Anyone on the roadways should be prepared to encounter slick road conditions. Remember to always leave at least six car lengths behind our DPW vehicles while they work and move any cars off the street and into a driveway while we continue our plowing operations,” County Commissioner Al Dyer said. “Remember that it is illegal in New Jersey to plow or shovel snow from private property into roadways.”
NJ Transit said that bus service to Ocean City and Cape May will terminate Monday afternoon at Somers Point due to the snow.
Power outages have been minimal for JCP&L, PSE&G and Atlantic City customers, according to their respective outage maps.
Dozens of school districts canceled classes over legitimate concerns about snow-covered roads but some admitted that they took the extra day to give the district an extra day as COVID-19 cases continue to surge in New Jersey.
"The snow day gives us an extra day after New Year's Day so if anyone has symptoms to stay home. This variant spreads quickly so if someone is sick it could cause a spreading event. Symptoms sometimes take three or four days so now we have an extra day. If you're sick stay home and get well," Superintendent Tommy Parlapanides told New Jersey 101.5.
As for the clean up, Zarrow said the wet snow will freeze as temperatures that were in the 60s on Sunday plunge to the teens Monday night.
"The hard freeze tonight will lead to continuing icy spots. Such cold temperatures also makes salt concoctions less effective. So I do expect slippery roads and sidewalks through at least Tuesday morning," Zarrow said.
In Atlantic City residents can park for free on the fourth floor of the Wave parking garage near the Tanger Outlets from 10 a.m. Monday until 5 p.m. Tuesday to allow for road crews to work.

NJ judge takes action after protesting workers bring trains to a halt

A federal judge issued an emergency restraining order Sunday prohibiting members of NJ Transit's engineers union from taking any future job action as the agency filed a lawsuit over Friday's job action.
The moves come after a third of NJ Transit's train engineers called out Friday causing dozens of canceled trains culminating with service ending for the day in the early evening. Train commuters found themselves stranded and scrambling to find an alternative ride.
According to a report by NorthJersey.com, NJ Transit's lawsuit filed Friday called the day's job action the equivalent of a strike that "ravaged" the lives of those who depend on NJ Transit.
The agency requested the emergency order after engineers who are members of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers & Trainsmen (BLE&T) continued to call out sick over the weekend. It was granted by U.S. District Judge Christine O'Hearn on Sunday, according to NorthJersey.com.
Under the order, BLE&T members may not encourage, permit or participate in any action that would interfere with NJ Transit operations. Members who violate the order could face discipline, fines or jail.
Union leadership must "immediately" tell members to stop any action about job actions.
In a letter to Brown before Friday's action, NJ Transit accused union leadership of encouraging members to call out on the state's Juneteenth holiday. BLE&T is the only NJ Transit union not to sign a new agreement that adds Juneteenth as a paid holiday.
"Please be aware that NJ Transit will not tolerate an unlawful job action and may institute disciplinary action against any employees taking such action. Further, anyencouragement of this unlawful activity by BLE&T leadership will also not be tolerated and may result in disciplinary action," read the letter.
Members did not receive holiday pay for working on Friday because they are still under the old contract's terms.
During a court hearing on Sunday, Brown admitted writing an email insinuating that members should not let the lack of a paid holiday stop them from enjoying the Juneteenth holiday, according to NorthJersey.com.
NJ Transit on Monday afternoon did not respond to New Jersey 101.5's request for more information.
Don't complain: Seven reasons why you're lucky to be living in NJ
Despite the cost, here are seven lucky reasons why you should be proud to be living in such a fun and great state as New Jersey.
We react quickly
Never mind the deer, it's those from way out of state we need to watch out for. Luckily for us, we're taught to react quickly.
And, we know the left lane is for passing only
We know how to properly use the left lane to keep traffic moving. But, it's also probably our biggest pet peeve on the road when it comes to that out-of-state driver taking a casual Sunday drive in the left lane. MOVE OVER!!!
Three rights make a left... or is it, one continuous right turn that happens to go left? Whatever the case may be, we just know how to navigate them... and we're pretty good at it too.
Out of all the other perks on the road, this one's the most important. We're very fortunate to have such quick response times for emergencies in New Jersey.
We know Jersey loves Philly sports teams, so it only makes sense that they should play on our side of the river. At least we don't have to travel far to see them.
New Jersey’s best bar bands from back in the day and where they played
New Jersey has always had a great music scene, especially in Asbury Park as you can see on "Asbury Park, Riot, Redemption, and Rock N Roll," which is narrated by Big Joe Henry.Growing up in the '70s and '80s and working at WBJB-FM, which was the radio voice of Brookdale Community College, I found myself hanging in many of the great New Jersey clubs, hearing bands like Bystander, Trigger, Sam the Band, and of course, Salty Dog featu...
New Jersey has always had a great music scene, especially in Asbury Park as you can see on "Asbury Park, Riot, Redemption, and Rock N Roll," which is narrated by Big Joe Henry.
Growing up in the '70s and '80s and working at WBJB-FM, which was the radio voice of Brookdale Community College, I found myself hanging in many of the great New Jersey clubs, hearing bands like Bystander, Trigger, Sam the Band, and of course, Salty Dog featuring who came to be my good friend Paul Venier.
It was a terrific time as the Jersey music scene was exploding with not only Bruce Springsteen (who now has a museum in Freehold) exploding, but you never knew where he would turn up and start playing. Same with Southside Johnny.
There was also Cats on a Smooth Surface, Glen Burtnik, Backstreets who later became the B Street Band.
These were the bands that we saw back in the day in places that don't exist anymore like the Beach House in Point Pleasant, the Ship's Wheel in Brielle, Jimmy Byrnes in Sea Girt, Art Stock's Royal Manor.
So I asked my following what was their favorite bar band from back in the day and where did they see them play? Of course, there was no better band than the one where you met someone you liked and no better place than the one where you got them to leave with you. See if these bring back any memories.

Get ready to look up. And no, this isn’t a preachy Leonardo DiCaprio /Jennifer Lawrence film.
June’s so-called strawberry moon (named that because this month is when strawberries are harvested in northeastern North America) is going to be a supermoon. That means it’s the time the moon and earth are the shortest distance from each other and the moon will appear 7% bigger.
Now that 7% may sound insignificant. It’s not. The full supermoon is going to look huge. Bigly huge, enormous, and everybody will be talking about it, I’ll tell you this. (To put it in terms of our 45th president).
Not only is this supermoon on Tuesday going to be amazing, but according to experts, there’s going to be what they are calling a “parade of planets” visible by the naked eye that will get even easier to see as the days go on.
Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn are lined up close together in the sky this month and on June 24 will be the easiest to see. That rare planetary alignment hasn’t happened since December of 2004 when it last allowed us to view it with the naked eye from Earth.
Man, you could get neck strain with all this looking up this month. It’s best to view that planet parade during the early morning hours.
So that strawberry supermoon on Tuesday? That’s at its fullest at exactly 7:51 a.m. Tuesday morning June 14 here in New Jersey according to space.com but you’ll be able to enjoy it from June 13 through 15.

These are the best hiking spots in New Jersey
A trip to New Jersey doesn't have to be all about the beach. Our state has some incredible trails, waterfalls, and lakes to enjoy.
From the Pine Barrens to the Appalachian Trail to the hidden gems of New Jersey, you have plenty of options for a great hike. Hiking is such a great way to spend time outdoors and enjoy nature, plus it's a great workout.
Before you go out on the trails and explore some of our listeners' suggestions, I have some tips on hiking etiquette from the American Hiking Society.
If you are going downhill and run into an uphill hiker, step to the side and give the uphill hiker space. A hiker going uphill has the right of way unless they stop to catch their breath.
Always stay on the trail, you may see side paths, unless they are marked as an official trail, steer clear of them. By going off-trail you may cause damage to the ecosystems around the trail, the plants, and wildlife that live there.
You also do not want to disturb the wildlife you encounter, just keep your distance from the wildlife and continue hiking.
Bicyclists should yield to hikers and horses. Hikers should also yield to horses, but I’m not sure how many horses you will encounter on the trails in New Jersey.
If you are thinking of bringing your dog on your hike, they should be leashed, and make sure to clean up all pet waste.
Lastly, be mindful of the weather, if the trail is too muddy, it's probably best to save your hike for another day.
I asked our listeners for their suggestions of the best hiking spots in New Jersey, check out their suggestions:
