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 South Belmar:
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 was a golden age in NYC when Bischoff’s ice cream first opened its doors.
It was the late 1800s when things were fancy schmancy and people got dressed up to go out for ice cream.
When you walked into an ice cream place back then it was all gleaming machines, shiny countertops, clam-shaped booths and staff wearing paper hats and bowties.
That’s the way Bischoffs was and that’s the way it’s stayed for 88 years.
And now, According to an article on NJ.com that wonderful relic of a simpler time is set to close.
Albert Bischoff started the business we know as Bischoff’s Ice Cream more than four generations ago, passing the business down through his daughters.
The first shop opened near the Hippodrome Theater in New York City in the late 1800s before relocating in 1934 to Teaneck, according to the company’s website.
And now it’s one of the places people drive to Bergen County to visit.
At the risk of sounding trite, it seems like in NJ all good things must come to an end, and so it is for this iconic ice cream shop which also which specializes in sundaes, sherbets and candy, but is also a restaurant/grill where people can grab a burger ir roast beef sandwich for lunch.
And don’t forget the egg creams.
It’s the old-fashioned soda fountain, which, unfortunately, I am too young to have ever actually seen in person.
But I’ve seen enough in movies and on TV to want this kind of place to stay around forever.
After having earned numerous accolades and spots on various “best Ice cream” lists, after 88 years the business will close for good on New Year’s Eve, the article says.
It’s the kind of old-fashioned ice cream/parlor experience that we just don’t have around anymore.
And fewer and fewer of them still exist.
That’s why Bischoff‘s will be missed by the people in Bergen County, and all the others who drove from other places in New Jersey just to experience it.
Soon there will be a whole generation of people who don’t know what it’s like to spin around on those counter chairs while sipping their ice cream sodas or egg creams.

With 14 recent drownings in N.J., experts warn of rip currents, swimming without guards

It’s been a deadly start to the swimming season at New Jersey’s beaches, rivers and lakes with at least a dozen drownings since late April.
There have also been at least two pool deaths, bringing the total to at least 14 drownings before the official start of summer.
The victims have spanned ages and locations, from out-of-state visitors in their teens to New Jersey residents spending a day at the Jersey Shore.
Though the drownings all occurred under different circumstances, lifeguards and experts say swimming can be particularly dangerous this time of year.
Everything from the water temperature to the prevalence of rip currents in the ocean can increase the likelihood of a drowning, said Long Beach Township lifeguard coordinator Josh Bligh.
Rip currents can form right off the beach, especially when the waves are rougher or winds are high, Bligh said. People might swim out to a sandbar during low tide without realizing the danger of being caught in a rip current.
And when the water is colder, people become more easily fatigued and are more likely to experience hypothermia, he said. Both of those conditions— along with the absence of lifeguards on many beaches, lakes and pools before the season fully starts— can make people unaware of the water’s hidden dangers.
Some people are also tempted to swim on unguarded beaches in areas where full-time lifeguards will not be on duty until after schools let out and lifeguard stands are fully staffed.
“Honestly it hasn’t changed,” said Bligh, who has worked as a lifeguard for more than 20 years. “As long as people continue to go into the water when a lifeguard isn’t present, they more or less have to take on that responsibility.”
The variables that can increase the likelihood of drowning are still present when lifeguards are watching swimmers, he noted, but in those cases, guards are able to help immediately.
“I don’t think people really realize the danger of water,” he added.
The recent drownings in New Jersey have included 19-year-old Pennsylvania man drowned near a Wildwood beach in early June. A week later, a 53-year-old man, also from Pennsylvania, drowned while swimming in Wildwood Crest.
Soon after, a third person, a 45-year-old man from Hillsdale, drowned in Wildwood.
Others drowned while swimming in Belmar (a 24-year-old Lake Hopatcong man), at Island Beach State Park (a 59-year-old woman), in a Woodland Park reservoir (a 15-year-old boy) and in different lakes across the state.
In April, a high school senior drowned in a pond in New Milford, after going to retrieve a soccer ball. The next month, a man’s body was recovered in the Passaic River in Newark. A 55-year-old man died after being pulled from the Delaware River in Carneys Point Township.
And in June, a man drowned while trying to swim across a Manchester Township, and a teenager and 22-year-old drowned in a Morris County lake.
Two brothers also died at an indoor pool at a Bayonne school in early June after lifeguards pulled them from the deep end.
Though the circumstances surrounding the 14 drownings varied widely, in many of the cases there were no lifeguards present or the victims were swimming in a place where they should not have been in the water.
It’s difficult to determine trends among the recent ocean drownings at the Jersey Shore, but rip currents remain a danger, said Stockton University Coastal Research Center director and founder Stewart Farrell.
Dangerous currents dissipate after a storm is over, but not for at least five or six hours, he said. Rough waves can also factor into the creation of a rip current.
“(Waves) can keep generating riptides, but it depends on the beach,” he said.
Despite the recent string of drownings across the state, New Jersey is not known as a state with a high number of water-related deaths.
The annual age-adjusted drowning death rate nationwide from 2015 to 2019, including boating-related drowning deaths, was 1.23 deaths per 100,000 people, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
In New Jersey, that rate was 0.67 deaths per 100,000 people, far below the nationwide average.
And between 2010 and 2022, the state averaged seven ocean drownings, six reservoir or lake drownings and nine river drownings a year, according to preliminary data from the Department of Health.

Belmar vs. Bellmawr — North & South Jersey are 2 separate states
"Look hon, they spelled Belmar wrong on that sign."As I was driving home the other day, I passed a sign I pass every day. It was the exit for I-195, and as many of our signs to it, listed a town that you can get to by taking that road.It said I-195 East Belmar. About 20 minutes later further down on I-295 I saw the exit for the Blackhorse Pike, also known as Route 168. One of the towns listed on that exit was Bellmawr. Pronounced the same as the other in Belmar but different spelling and a different town....
"Look hon, they spelled Belmar wrong on that sign."
As I was driving home the other day, I passed a sign I pass every day. It was the exit for I-195, and as many of our signs to it, listed a town that you can get to by taking that road.
It said I-195 East Belmar. About 20 minutes later further down on I-295 I saw the exit for the Blackhorse Pike, also known as Route 168. One of the towns listed on that exit was Bellmawr. Pronounced the same as the other in Belmar but different spelling and a different town.
Also, in a different world.
Anyone who lives north of 195 knows Belmar as the college beach town that kids flock to every summer. Those living south of Route 195 know Bellmawr as that sleepy little borough somewhere near Camden off the Blackhorse Pike.
Recently the town gained notoriety as the home of crusader and defiant gym owner Ian Smith of Atilis gym. The point is not where the line is dividing north and south jersey or if there is a “central Jersey."
The point is that we live in our own little “territory." The differences and similarities of language and affiliation have been illustrated here many times. The northern half of the state is part of the New York media market the southern half of the state is part of the Philadelphia media market, and all of the differences that come with that, such a sport team affiliations pronunciation of some words, etc.
The differences are stark in some cases. That is also the case in many other states. The folks in the Piedmont area of North Carolina have a little in common with the folks in the coastal region. Folks in Northern California have little in common with the folks in Central or Southern California.
The difference here is those are much bigger states. In such a small geographic area, New Jerseyans live in two separate worlds. I’m not calling for the division of the state into two separate states. I’m just saying maybe we should have some sort of exchange program where people spend time in the opposite part of the state for a little while to realize things are pretty different only a few miles away.
At a time when we are divided in so many ways maybe just coming together as one little state would be a good start!

NEW JERSEY -- When the COVID spread across America in early March 2020, it wreaked havoc on the “St. Patrick’s Season” for both 2020 and 2021. Not only did the pandemic put the kibosh New York City’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade, the largest in the world on March 17, but it also led to the cancellation of other parades across the country. New Jersey, with a significant Irish American population, was not spared.
However, this year, with COVID-related restrictions on gatherings loosening, a large percentage of New Jersey’s marches are scheduled to return. These include St. Patrick’s Parades up and down the state: from Morristown and Union to South Amboy and Belmar, great days are planned for the Irish.
