Soundproofer Ash Surrey (GU12): If your Ash home is being impacted by noise, maybe you should think about installing or upgrading your soundproofing to bring tranquillity to your home office, lounge, studio or bedroom. Conversely you may wish to soundproof a particular room to keep load noises in, for example in a home cinema or family room, to avoid disturbing others. Whatever your needs are, soundproofing will provide you with peace of mind.
It is crucial for us to understand how sound travels around a building before it is possible to find solutions to prevent it from occurring.
Basically, sound travels in two ways throughout your room:
1. Through the air by vibration of air molecules.
2. Around and within a solid object by reflection and vibration.
As dolphin and whale songs can show, sound also travels through water, but unless you wish to soundproof a pool or aquarium we will just look at the strategies for soundproofing buildings and rooms.
SOUND TRAVEL THROUGH THE AIR
Any heating ducts, single glazed windows, gaps around doors and even electrical switches and sockets can all be methods of transmission of sound into or outside a room. All noise and sounds will create movement and vibration of the air molecules, and this is what we hear and identify. It does not matter if it's heavy machinery, music playing, nearby traffic, kids playing or passing aircraft, they all generate and transmit sound in the same manner.
If you try and think of your room as if it were a bucket, and you are attempting to identify any leaks which need sealing before you can fill it up with water.
SOUND TRAVEL THROUGH STRUCTURES AND OBJECTS
We know that sound is simply the vibration of air reaching the ear, but that vibration is also reflected by or transferred to solid objects. The floors, ceilings and walls will all have an impact on how sound moves around a room, and may even transport that vibration to other rooms in a dwelling. Even a room made of solid concrete, such as a cellar, can create a resonance path which channels sound waves, and sometimes amplify them, to other parts of a property.
However, how can these sound generating effects be stopped from creating an issue? The solution is not surprisingly, soundproofing!
BASIC STEPS IN SOUNDPROOFING
A bare floor surface resonates more than one covered with a carpet or rug. Such a simple and straightforward solution can help to damp down any noise and enhance the room to boot. Wall coverings or window drapes can also be used to enhance soundproofing and are simple to install.
Finding and sealing any gaps or holes in your room, think door frames, light fittings, sockets and windows, is also an easy job for a capable DIY�er. You can find professional acoustic sealants in some DIY stores that deaden the transmission of sound by suppressing it. There could be a considerable difference in price in comparison with a standard sealant, but the soundproofing abilities are far better and can make a big difference to a room's soundproofing.
If your room is a blank canvas and you are soundproofing as you renovate or decorate, consider installing a layer of soundboard or plasterboard, (also called drywall, gyproc or sheet rock). This is an efficient and economical soundproofing material because of its dense nature. If you're fitting a study, music studio or movie room then plasterboard will help to minimise sound pollution for that room, and can be easily decorated after installment. If you are not familiar with putting up studding and plasterboard, it is generally advisable to use a specialist team to guarantee the optimal soundproofing benefits from its installation.
The last do-it-yourself solution is to check out the doors within your home in Ash. Hollow doors are a relatively cheap option although their soundproofing qualities are far from perfect. Changing hollow doors for solid ones will noticeably improve the soundproofing of an area with only a small extra cost.
PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING SOLUTIONS ASH
If your home is in a high noise pollution area, such as next to a busy road or near an airport, you'll have to be more imaginative in how to boost the quality of the soundproofing in your house. This is where hiring the services of a professional soundproofing company will deliver the most effective results.
The initial questions you can expect to be asked are:
- From which direction do the sounds appear to be coming? i.e. Through the ceiling, walls, doors, floor or windows or a mixture of all of them.
- What are the specific sounds that you need to be soundproofed? i.e. Is it sounds from within your property such as a music room or home cinema, or outside noises such as aircraft, neighbours playing loud music, road noise, etc.
- How large is the area that needs soundproofing?
- What is the area you wish to soundproof constructed from? (i.e. a stud partition wall, a fully lined concrete wall or a brick wall).
Your answers to such queries will allow you to receive itemised quotes for the different solutions available that match your circumstances. There will be distinct remedies for each of the main key areas of the space you want to soundproof.
PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING OF CEILINGS, FLOORS and WALLS
There are 2 key areas that must be dealt with to successfully soundproof any room:
- Improve sound absorption.
- Minimise sound amplifying and reverberation.
An on-site survey is going to be required to examine the areas to be improved.
A professional soundproofing company will consider the different ways to add density and mass to the troublesome areas. Soundproofing will be boosted by the installation of acoustic foam and rubber which absorbs sound waves and improves and a room's sound quality.
Voids between joists might require insulating to remove the resonating gap between them. If you think of a drum for instance, you are looking at a sound amplifying void enclosed within a resonating material; essentially what you may encounter inside ceiling and floor joists, or wall cavities.
It is better to use mixed layers of different density materials to deaden undesirable noises than a solitary layer made of one soundproofing material. This is due to the fact that the various different materials react better with varying frequencies and will provide a better overall solution to your soundproofing.
The Building Regulations (Part E) deal with the soundproofing of domestic properties, and will have to be applied by any installation company in Ash. This regulation has the purpose of protecting neighbours in the area from the impact and effect of noise pollution.
Look for companies showing the logos of the Institute of Acoustics (IOA) or the Association of Noise Consultants (ANC) to ensure you are using a business that is fully qualified and knowledgeable in the soundproofing industry. Only those Ash companies that have been appraised and approved by these trade organisations for reliability, professionalism and quality are permitted to display the logo.
