Soundproofer Farnworth Greater Manchester (BL4): If noise is an issue in your Farnworth home then it may be time to look at some soundproofing to make your home office, bedroom, studio or living room a haven of peace and quiet from your fellow occupants, neighbours and the outside world. You may also be aware of noise from a family room or home cinema room seeping out and disturbing others in the house. In any event, soundproofing is crucial for sanity and peace of mind.
Firstly we need to learn exactly how sound travels and is transmitted before we are able to identify ways to combat any loud noise getting into or out of your property.
Sound can move in only two ways:
1. Around and within a solid object by vibration and reflection.
2. In open spaces by movement of air.
As whale and dolphin song shows, sound also penetrates long distance through water, however unless you wish to soundproof an aquarium or swimming pool we will just look at the techniques of soundproofing structures and rooms.
SOUND TRAVELLING THROUGH THE AIR
Substantial amounts of sound can be transmitted out of and into a room through gaps around doors, open air-ducting, ill fitting windows and even electrical sockets and switches. What we identify and hear as sound is essentially air molucules being vibrated and being picked up by our ear drums. All sounds are moved through the air in this same way; it does not matter if it's children playing, machinery, aeroplanes, music playing or busy traffic that produces the sound.
If you can visualise your room as a bucket, you're trying to identify any leaks to seal before you can fill it up with liquid.
SOUND TRAVEL THROUGH OBJECTS AND STRUCTURES
As sound travels through the air by vibrations, then it stands to reason that those vibrations can be absorbed by, reflected by or transferred to different materials. Sound will vibrate the ceilings, walls and floors of your rooms, and may lead to a resonating effect which is transmitted outside of the room itself. Care should be taken with brick or solid concrete walls, such as in cellars or basements, as sound can be reflected and sometimes even amplified to other rooms in your property.
But, how can these effects be stopped from creating an issue? The solution is not surprisingly, soundproofing!
BASIC SOUNDPROOFING STEPS
Think about covering a bare floor, which resonates and reflects sound, with a rug or carpet. Such a straightforward solution can spruce up a room and help dampen down any noises to boot. Curtains, and in particular substantial blackout types, will also stifle any noises from escaping or invading a room, cost-effectively and without requiring specialist soundproofing.
Another economical and DIY resolution is to plug any gaps or holes around door frames, sockets, light fittings and windows. Plugging the holes and gaps with a specialist acoustic sealant that can be purchased in some DIY and building material shops, can make an enormous difference to sound transmission in your room. They might be somewhat more expensive than regular sealants or plaster, but are more than worth it for their soundproofing qualities.
For anyone redecorating a room or renovating a property, consider the soundproofing gains of adding a supplementary layer of plasterboard or soundboard, (also called drywall, gyproc or sheet rock), while you are tackling this work. This is a fairly dense type of board that is an economic and useful soundproofing material. It's ideal for spaces like movie rooms, studios or studies being built within your home in Farnworth. If you aren't proficient in fitting framing and plasterboard, it's advisable to employ a professional Farnworth contractor to guarantee the optimum soundproofing results from its use.
One final simple soundproofing remedy is to examine the materials from which your doors are made. Hollow doors are a fairly cheap option although their soundproofing qualities are a far cry from perfect. Solid doors, whilst a little more expensive, can do wonders for soundproofing a room.

If the sound pollution is high in your area, because of heavy traffic on a busy road nearby, or aircraft flying over for example, then more serious methods to combat the excess noise may need to be explored. You'll get the very best soundproofing results by using the expertise of an established soundproofing specialist.
Be ready to answer the four following questions during an initial analysis of your particular soundproofing requirements:
- From what direction do the noises appear to be coming? i.e. Through the windows, floors, walls, ceiling or doors or a combination of all of them.
- What space needs to be soundproofed? i.e. Is it a concrete lined cellar, a brick walled room, a loft conversion or a plasterboard partition room.
- What are the particular sounds that need to soundproofed? i.e. Is it sounds from inside your property such as a family room or teenagers bedroom, or outside noises such as traffic noise, neighbours, overflying aircraft, etc.
- How large is the area that needs soundproofing?
Your answers to such queries will enable you to get itemised quotes for the various available solutions to suit your circumstances. There'll be different solutions for each of the key areas the space you wish to soundproof.
PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING OF WALLS, FLOORS and CEILINGS
To soundproof any type of room requires 2 key strategies:
- Lower the effect of sound vibration, reflection and amplification by solid surfaces.
- Improve the absorption of sound.
To accurately analyse the elements that need improvement, an on-site survey must be conducted by a soundproofing company in Farnworth.
Solutions identified by the survey will include adding some materials of different densities to help improve the soundproofing qualities of the room. This extra mass will include ways to improve the absorption of noise through the use of acoustic foam or rubber to gain the maximum impact of sound reduction.
Voids between joists may require insulation to eliminate resonation spaces between them. If you imagine these spaces as similar to a drum then you can see that by leaving wall cavities and floor or ceiling joist spaces empty, you are effectively creating a sound amplifying area.
It is best to use mixed layers of different density materials to soak up unwelcome noises than a single layer made from one material. This is due to the fact that the various frequencies are absorbed differently by different kinds of materials, therefore a variety of layers, densities and shapes within your soundproofing panels are needed.
Part E of the Building Regulations focus on the soundproofing of domestic properties, and must be applied by any soundproofing firm in Farnworth.
