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

Fluke fishing picks up on ocean drifts, while Spanish mackerel trickle in

There is a marked improvement in the ocean drifts for fluke as several fish in the 5- to 7-pound range were netted on the for-hire boats this week. Captains are starting to report more limit catches are being put together by anglers.
Capt. Ryan Bogan, skipper of the Jamaica II out of Brielle, said there is a pretty good body of fluke inshore. His only problem with getting to them is the ocean conditions, which, he said, affect fishing more than anything.
For example, on Monday, the drift speed got up to 1.3 knots and made it difficult for his fares to get bites. The water also chilled on Tuesday, down to 55 degrees. Still, each day he had patrons catch their limits as the fluke are getting more aggressive.
Fishermen will have south winds to push their boats around this weekend, according to the National Weather Service\'s marine forecast. There could be occasional strong gusts that hit 25 knots but the seas should be manageable for most boats.
The blue fishing was ideal Wednesday within a few miles of the beach in the Monmouth Beach to Sandy Hook stretch of the coastline. Fishermen had all they wanted of bluefish that are running from 2 to 8 pounds.
Capt. Rich Falcone said they maxed out the boat limit and couldn\'t bring in one more fish by the time it was all said and done. The blues hit as soon he stopped the boat on the first drift and at times he observed 6 or 7 fish on at a time. For the most part, the fish were landed on metal AVA jigs and teasers.
A few Spanish mackerel were jigged on the boat as at least some of those fish are swimming the inshore waters. Lastly, Falcone said there were many dolphins swimming in the area, too.
It also appears that the triggerfish are trickling in and starting to take hold in the inlets. Bobby Matthews at Fisherman\'s Den in Belmar got word that a few were landed in the Shark River Inlet on clams and worms.
Surf fishermen reeled in more than a few striped bass off the Monmouth and Ocean beaches this week. The fish were mainly on bunker and clam baits. Grumpy\'s Bait and Tackle had customers send back word, and photos, of fish ranging from 31 to 39 inches landed from Seaside\'s beaches.
Capt. Dave DeGennaro on the Hi Flier charter boat drifted the Barnegat Inlet with sandworms on a float rig and enticed a number of striped bass to bite. The fish were on the small side, 16 to 26 inches, but kept the rods bent, nonetheless.
There were fewer drums taken this week, though, from the southern Ocean county surf, the shop reported. The kingfish haven\'t budged much from southern Long Beach Island where anglers continue to catch a few each day, according to the reports coming out of Jingle\'s Bait and Tackle in Beach Haven.
The blue claw crabs are ripe for plucking and full of meat. Trixie\'s Landing in Bayville had rental customers return with a half-bushel or half-cooler full this week. The mouth of Cedar Creek has been a fairly productive ground. The Oceanic Marina in Rumson is also starting to spread the word of half-bushel catches on the Navesink River.

Hundreds Of Needles Illegally Dumped On NJ Beaches: Official

A Monmouth County official thinks illegal dumping, not sewer overflow runoff from North Jersey and NYC is the cause of syringes on beaches.
LONG BRANCH, NJ — Hundreds of used needles washed up on several Monmouth County beaches this past weekend, and a top county official said Monday he suspects illegal dumping is the culprit.
Syringes were spotted Saturday and Sunday in Monmouth Beach and at Seven Presidents Park in Long Branch, which is a beachfront park operated by Monmouth County, causing them to be closed, according to a county spokesperson.
Thomas Arnone, the Director of the Monmouth County Board of County Commissioners, said that he was "disgusted" by the thought of someone dumping medical waste into the ocean.
"We are disgusted and appalled by the fact that hundreds of pieces of medical waste — namely syringes — have washed up on the beautiful shores of Monmouth County beaches," Arnone said in a statement.
"To think that someone intentionally disposed of medical waste in the ocean is beyond comprehension. This despicable action shows a complete lack of respect for human safety, marine safety, and the environment," he said. "Not to mention a total disregard for the negative effects that this has on the economy as beaches were forced to close and turn visitors away."
The National Park Service, which runs Gateway National Recreation Area, where Sandy Hook is located, said no syringes were discovered on their beaches.
But Dan George, beach manager for the city of Long Branch, said that beach patrols found five syringes on Long Branch beaches on Sunday and that lifeguards are checking the beaches periodically.
"We\'re having guards check the water line periodically, especially on outgoing tide," George said.
Arnone\'s statements contradict an NBC 10 Philadelphia report that says the syringes were likely caused by sewer runoff from northern New Jersey and New York City due to the several days of heavy rain.
A statement from the New Jersey Department of Environment Protection (NJDEP) on Monday night disagreed with Arnone\'s assessment that the waste that washed up resulted from illegal dumping.
"The floatables came from outfalls in and around the NY/NJ Harbor following Combined Sewer Overflows from large rain events prior to and during Tropical Storm Elsa. The overflows, in addition to wind direction and tides, directed the floatables onto the beaches from Pavilion Beach in Monmouth Beach to Joline in Long Branch," The NJDEP statement said.
According to the NJDEP, combined sewer systems are shared piping systems that carry both sewage and stormwater to a central treatment system before discharging it into a waterway. During heavy rainfall, these systems overflow, discharging a mix of sewage and stormwater to the waterway.
Arnone did not reply when asked if the needles could be caused by flooding, and as of Monday afternoon, all the affected beaches have been cleaned and have since reopened.
Arnone stated that county officials are investigating the matter.
"Please know that Monmouth County is closely monitoring this situation and the safety of our residents and visitors remains our top priority. The good news is that, currently, the beaches are clear and have reopened," Arnone said
"At this time, we are unaware of the source of the medical waste. With that said, we firmly believe that the party responsible should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law."

Criteria for 2020-2021 ICSA All-American Sailing Team: A committee of representatives from the seven conferences in the ICSA selects the ICSA All-America Team. To select an All-American skipper, the committee evaluates a competitor based on their competitive record in inter-conference competition as well as conference and national championships.
The committee analyzes how this record compares to fellow competitors, the quality of the competition the record was achieved in, and results achieved competing with different crews, the span of the record over the fall and spring seasons, and how the record compares to previous All-American winners.
Evaluating using these criterion presented a challenge in 2020-21 for the committee due to the sailing seasons not having traditional inter-conference regattas and participation from all schools.
For All-American crew selections, the committee uses criteria similar to skipper selection, but also considers: demonstrated leadership (may consider seniority), outstanding body mechanics and boat handling skills as well as proven ability to improve the results of the skipper(s) with whom he or she sails. The committee selected nine All-American Crews and nine Honorable Mentions.
