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 Monmouth Beach:
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

There are 1,000s of options to travel with you're family for your next vacation.
As you start planning for your next travel destination, your own backyard has been named one of the 50 best spots to travel.
The popular travel website, travelandleisure.com, made their list of the 50 best destinations for 2023 by asking Travel + Leisure's editors where they want to go in 2023.
The Jersey Shore was listed as the 50 best spots, in the category of "For Beach Vibes."
Even Atlantic City is now substantially more chic, after many casino resorts, including Bally’s, Caesars, and Ocean, used the pandemic-induced dip in visitors to undertake hundreds of millions of dollars in renovations. “The area as a whole has had a bit of a renaissance,” Distefano said. One telling indicator of where the Shore is headed next? A Nobu Hotel is slated to open on the boardwalk any day now.
The article also mentioned the Asbury Park area, including the entire Jersey Shore from up the Parkway in the Monmouth/Ocean county area, down into the Atlantic and Cape May county area.
Other places that were in the "Beach Vibes" category included Bermuda, the Cayman Islands, Coastal Uruguay, Guadeloupe, Maui, Hawaii, Riviera Maya, Riviera Nayarit, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
So, what's it like to live in one of the 50 best spots to travel, pretty neat isn't it?

A 20-ton humpback whale was found washed ashore on a South Jersey beach Saturday morning.
Staff from the Marine Mammal Stranding Center were on location in Strathmere, Cape May County, taking measurements and preparing to perform a necropsy in attempts to determine the whale's cause of death, The Press of Atlantic City reported. The whale was dead when it came ashore.
"It was crazy," Sea Isle resident Tom D'Intino told PhillyVoice. "I've never seen anything like that."
D'Intino was surfing in Strathmere with a friend Saturday morning around dawn when he saw the large beached mammal.
"We looked down the beach and there's just this huge lump," D'Intino said. "Some guy came up and said 'There's a whale down there,' and you see this huge lump and the drift was bad so you just saw it pulling away. But we went down and checked it out and yeah, it was huge. It was definitely dead, it wasn't floundering or flopping or anything like that."
D'Intino originally saw the whale washed up around Whittier Avenue, but after he finished surfing he saw that the whale was gone. Due to strong currents, it had drifted about a mile down to a section of beach known as "Whale Beach." The beach's name is believed to stem from the number of whales that have washed ashore there over the decades.
Once the crew from the Stranding Center, located in Brigantine, completes its work on the whale, the Public Works Department plans to bury the animal on the beach. This is standard practice for large marine animals.
Township workers originally tried to drag the whale's remains out of the water and up the beach using heavy equipment. But, the mammal weighed too much, so a front end loader was used to roll the whale up the beach and beyond the tide line instead.
Humpback whales are found in every ocean across the globe. Their average size is 48 to 62.5 feet, and average weight is 40 tons. The whale in Strathmere was an estimated 30 feet long in size and weighed 20 tons.
The species' population was severely reduced before the 1985 ban on commercial whaling, but the numbers in many population groups, including off the coast of New Jersey, have since improved. They remain a protected species, with their largest threats including collisions with ships and entanglement in fishing gear.
It's possible that a collision with a boat may have contributed to the death of the whale found in Strathmere. Steve D'Intino, who went to check out the whale after hearing about it from his brother Tom D'Intino, noted some wounds on the whale's body.
"It looks like it was hit by a boat," Steve D'Intino said. "There were some markings that look like a propeller had cut across it ... in a couple of different spots."
Humpback whales are a favorite of whale watchers, rising nose-first out of the water and slapping their fins. In October, a father and son duo were fishing off the coast of Belmar, Monmouth County, when they saw a humpback whale leap out of the water beside their boat.
Monmouth Beach kids raise $20,000 for food bank with lemonade stand

It started modestly on Memorial Day weekend of 2017, a lemonade stand manned by a couple of kindergarteners at the Monmouth Beach farmer’s market.
Six summers later, that lemonade stand has collected a grand total of $20,000 for Fulfill, the Neptune-based food bank that serves residents of Monmouth and Ocean counties.
“We’re still going,” said Ellen Marowitz, whose twin daughters Addie and Marnie Marowitz were there at the inception. “We have no plans to end it.”
Dubbed “Kids Quench Hunger,” the lemonade stand just wrapped up its sixth summer as a weekend staple at the farmer’s market. Ellen Marowitz estimates 25 of Addie’s and Marnie’s classmates in Monmouth Beach Elementary School have chipped in over the years, led by a core group of 10 who’ve been involved the entire time. In addition to Addie and Marnie, that group includes Morgan Vecchio, Anna Zimmerman, Chase Smith, Jake Dolan, Spencer Weinstein, Eliana Lehman, Alice Sorochan, and Avery Matranga. They’ve just begun sixth grade.
“This teaches them that it doesn’t matter how wealthy you are,” Ellen Marowitz said. “If you have something to give, you can change a person’s life with the smallest gesture.”
Kids Quench Hunger asks for a $1 donation per cup of lemonade, “but we get a lot of $5, $10, 20 donations,” Marowitz said. “We’ve had people give up to $100.”
The kids behind the stand have toured Fulfill and learned about the food bank’s backpack program, which gives more than 700 chronically hungry kids a backpack of nutritious and easy-to-prepare food on Fridays to sustain them through weekends, when they won’t have access to school meals.
“People are very willing to dig into their pockets and give, especially seeing it’s children feeding children,” Marowitz said.
This year the lemonade stand added Venmo as a way to contribute.
“You get your Gen Zs, who don’t carry money anymore,” Marowitz said. “We’re trying to keep up with them. So we bring up a QR code and it’s amazing to see the younger population respond.”
When the Venmo information was shared on social media, a family from California made a donation.
“We were so excited to get a donation from the West Coast,” Marowitz said.
Fulfill president Triada Stampas called the Kids Quench Hunger “a powerful example for everyone on how to mobilize their communities and play a part in the solution.”
The long-term goal, Marowitz said, is for these kids to “pass down” the lemonade stand to students in Monmouth Beach Elementary’s younger grades when they graduate in a little over two years.
For now, they plan on getting back out there in the summer of 2023.
“We hope they inspire others to help us help our neighbors,” Stampas said.

MONMOUTH BEACH, NJ — There's a new student at Monmouth Beach School.
She just arrived to the United States from Ukraine and she doesn't speak any English.
The girl's name is Elizabeth Kryvulko. She's 12 years old, and she just started the sixth grade this past Monday at Monmouth Beach School, said superintendent Jessica Alfone (former principal at River Plaza Elementary School in Middletown).
"Tomorrow, we will be outstretching our arms and welcoming a Ukrainian student to our school," wrote Alfone in a letter home to parents explaining Elizabeth's arrival. "The family arrived in the United States last week and is residing with one of our very generous families."
Just one month ago, Elizabeth was hiding in a bomb shelter in her home city of Oleksandria in Ukraine, huddled with her grandmother and hundreds of other families and children. Her mother was in New Jersey, on a tourist visa, and Elizabeth and her grandmother were stuck back in the besieged country.
"Five to eight times a day she and her grandmother were going to the bomb shelter," her mother told NBC's Brian Thompson. "Sometimes she was sitting in the shower in the bathroom because they say it's the safest place in the house."
An adult man the family knew in Oleksandria put the girl on a train out of the city, according to NBC, beating his hands bloody until the conductor opened the door to let the girl aboard. Her mother met her at the border with Romania and from there she and her daughter traveled to America.
The mother and daughter are staying with a Monmouth Beach family, and she started sixth grade at Monmouth Elementary Monday.
The family ultimately wants to return to Ukraine when the fighting stops; they do not intend to stay in America permanently. On March 4, the United States announced that Ukrainian citizens fleeing the Russian invasion would be provided temporary protected status. Then on March 24, President Joe Biden announced that up to 100,000 Ukrainian refugees would be accepted into the United States. Those refugees who have family already here would be given priority.
But for however long they will be in New Jersey, Monmouth Beach kids and their parents are doing everything they can to make Elizabeth feel at home: On her first day in the new school — in a new country — all the students and teachers wore the Ukrainian colors of blue and yellow.
"This show of solidarity and welcome will help her to see that we are so happy that she is with us — in a place of safety, comfort and compassion," said school superintendent Alfone. "We have had so many of you organize outreach and support for the situation in Ukraine, and it speaks volumes regarding the generosity of this community and the strength of the human spirit. So we will welcome Elizabeth and her mom to our school community."
