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 Spring Lake Boro:
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

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

Introducing Sneh, an extremely talented hair dresser working at Christopher Royce Hair Studios in Spring Lake Heights.
Not only do I LOVE how my hair turned out but I thoroughly enjoyed my personal experience overall.
This Jersey Shore business is so much more than a hair salon.
Usually, you are getting your hair cut and colored with other customers two feet away. Not here.
Each hair dresser works in their own individual room that comes with a salon chair, full counter and mirror. Your service is personalized, private and relaxing opposed to the chaos that I've witnessed in other salons.
Sneh has worked as a hair dresser for eight years and she knows everything there is to know about hair.
To start, you will never book with a receptionist.
Sneh speaks with all of her clients on the phone first to get to know you and to discuss what you are looking for before making an appointment.
Upon arrival, Sneh greeted me with a smile and open arms. We went right into her room to re-discuss what I was looking for and the plan of action.
Quick pause: Christopher Royce Hair Studios has a full bar where customers can enjoy a unique, handmade cocktail while they are glammed. You know how much I HATED this part...lol....
Sneh then applied my color, shaped my layers and had me leaving that salon feeling like myself again!
I won't lie to you. Girl talk took up most of the appointment and Sneh is so easy to approach which I think is an important quality to have in a hairstylist.
If you want to give your hair the revamp you've been looking for, reach out to Sneh! We already have planned my next color and highlights for the fall season!
Here's how you can reach out:

I'm not going to lie to you. This one is going to hurt.
We do have another business closing at the Jersey Shore but the fact that it is a local grocery store chain puts a knot in my stomach.
The store is called Nature's Corner Natural Market and they specialize in, "organic produce sourced from local farmers, organic natural groceries, milk, dairy and meats. It also has an organic juice bar, organic soup and salad bar, prepared foods, nutritional supplements and body care products," according to Yahoo.com.
Wow. I almost feel healthier just from writing all that but of course a local business supporting other local businesses is going under.
The owner, Ed Levy posted about the sad news on social media.
"After nearly 30 years of being in business, I have made the difficult decision to close Nature’s Corner for good," Levy wrote. "Many factors played a role in this decision; COVID, the hiring crisis, wage increases, inflation, recession and competition from big box stores. The list goes on, but I won’t bore you all with the details."
"Nature's Corner has always been a truly special place, for staff members and customers alike," Levy wrote. "It has been a sanctuary where people can come and escape from the divisiveness of the outside world while getting the highest quality natural products available. Especially during the last few years."
"And you, our dear customers, have made that a possibility over the last 30 years, and I (and all of the staff members) am eternally grateful to you."
This story is just breaking my heart because the only two existing store locations are closing.
According to Yahoo.com, the Nature's Corner Natural Market stores that are closing are located, "on Route 71 in Spring Lake Heights and [on Locust Avenue] at the West Long Branch Shopping Center."
The exact closing dates for both locations will be set in the next few weeks, per Levy's post.
Yes, there are other grocery store options in both of these areas and they include ShopRite, Stop & Shop, Aldi's and Trader Joe's.
But that is not the point.
A grocery store, yes a GROCERY STORE, is going out of business. The place we have to go to for food, something we need to survive can't make it in this economy.
That is a scary fact to face.
Nothing is safe.
A day in Spring Lake: Hit up the beach, stay on the move at shops and more

Spring Lake is less than 2 square miles with a year-round population of fewer than 3,000. But the village, which calls itself the "Jewel of the Jersey Shore," is a magnet for visitors, thanks to a quaint downtown filled with mom-and-pop shops, B&Bs and hotels, a pedestrian-friendly park (home to the actual Spring Lake) and a pristine beach.
Start the day with breakfast at one of Spring Lake's cafes: Dune Donuts and Bagels (1408 3rd Ave.), A.M. Kitchen (1321 3rd Ave.) or On Third Cafe and Coffee Company (1300 3rd Ave.)
Hit up Spring Lake beach
Spring Lake has a 2-mile-long beach. And its boardwalk alongside is considered the longest, non-commercial boardwalk in the state. There are no games of chance or neon lights, only the ocean on one side and dunes on the other, making it ideal for long walks and runs.
A day at the beach:What to do in Asbury Park and Ocean Grove (there's a lot)
For lunch, grab pizza at Spring Lake Pizzeria (1110 3rd Ave.) and top it off with a one-scoop ice cream cone for 99 cents at Third Avenue Chocolate Shoppe (1118 3rd Ave.) or chocolate from Jean Louise Homemade Candies (1205 3rd Ave.).
On the move
To get away from the crowds, check out Divine Park (801 Lake Drive) and Spring Lake, the spring-fed lake that gives the town its name.
In the afternoon, check out the Third Avenue shopping district, filled with mom and pop stores. Among them are boutiques like Juli Mei (1303 3rd Ave.) and Hive (1203 3rd Ave.), stores like Bare Wires Surf Shop (1307 3rd Ave.), and, for a pick-me-up, Driftwood, a coffee house (1102 3rd Ave.).
Don't want to spend too much money? You can walk through Spring Lake's neighborhoods and look at the Victorian homes, stroll the borough's 2-mile boardwalk or lay out on the pristine beach.
For dinner, try upscale Larimar Restaurant (1311 3rd Ave.) or the casual Spring Lake Tap House (810 Route 71). Meanwhile, the Spring Lake Community House & Theatre (300 Madison Ave.) is hoping to bring back live theater this summer.

HOBOKEN — A low-income Hudson County man could lose the place he calls home as the result of a lengthy legal dispute with his landlord.
Jeff Trupiano has lived in his Hoboken apartment-turned-condo for over three decades. He moved into the rent-controlled unit at 703 Park Ave. in 1991 under a former owner.
For the past five years, Trupiano has been locked in a legal battle with his landlord over a significant rent increase. Court records show that the landlord tried jacking the monthly rent by nearly $3,000 and is attempting to get retroactive rent from Trupiano.
A few years after Trupiano moved in, the apartment building was bought by Amaconn Realty, Inc. Then in 2001, the owner, who is Trupiano's landlord, turned the apartments into condominiums.
Sales records on Zillow.com show that one two-bedroom condo at the building was sold in April for $449,000.
Trupiano, who is in his 60s and makes less than $30,000 a year working at a local health food store, pays $783 in rent each month. His attorney, Dana Wefer, told New Jersey 101.5 that as a low-income renter, he will be protected from eviction for more than another 20 years because of the Tenant Protection Act.
But in 2017, Trupiano's landlord issued a hardship increase based on an appraisal of his unit. Wefer said that the appraisal was "hypothetical" and based on how much the unit could bring in if it were completely renovated.
According to a briefing provided by Wefer, the landlord knew that the building had a protected tenant and chose to proceed with the conversion anyway. It also notes that Trupiano continues to pay his rent on time despite the unit having been neglected for years.
"The property has been fundamentally transformed from one that was a prudent and sound investment to a single ill-maintained rent-controlled condominium unit, encumbered with a protected tenant who cannot be evicted for twenty-six years."
A GoFundMe is raising money for Trupiano's court costs and increasing rent. Created by the Hoboken Fair Housing Association, the fundraiser claims that an unfavorable decision could gut the Tenant Protection Act.
While Wefer is handling the case pro bono, there are high costs for appealing court decisions including the requirement to pay for thousands of pages of transcripts. Wefer said that they will likely need to appeal as a judge recently gave an oral decision stating that Trupiano's rent should increase based on the property's equity.
Wefer added that it's not hyperbole to say that the Tenant Protection Act is at risk. The attorney said she would not be surprised to see Trupiano's case go up to the New Jersey Supreme Court.
Previous rulings from the state's highest court, such as Mayes v. Jackson Township Rent Leveling Board (1986), have upheld rent control ordinances and a landlord's right to "realize a just and reasonable return on the property."
An attorney for the landlord did not respond to a request for comment.
