Soundproofer Gainsborough Lincolnshire (DN21): If you're anxious about the amount of noise in your Gainsborough property, be it in a home office, living room, bedroom or studio, you ought to look into installing or upgrading the soundproofing. In some instances you may be thinking about soundproofing so that you do not disturb others in the house from a music studio, children's room or home cinema. No matter what soundproofing needs are required, it's vital for everybody's peace of mind and sanity.
It is important to realise how sound travels and is transmitted around a building before it's possible to find techniques to prevent it from happening.
Basically, sound travels in two ways throughout your home:
1. By the vibration of air molecules.
2. Within and around a solid object by reflection and vibration.
As whale and dolphin song shows, sound also travels long distances through water, however unless you wish to soundproof a pool or aquarium we will look only at the methods of soundproofing rooms and structures.
SOUND TRAVELLING THROUGH THE AIR
If you look around your area to be soundproofed and notice open ducting, gaps around doors, ill fitting windows and even electrical switches and sockets, these are all aspects that can cause the transmission of sound. All noise vibrates the air molecules and this vibration is what we pick up and hear as sound. It matters not whether it's music, traffic, aeroplanes, children playing or machinery, they all create and transfer sound in the same manner.
Any openings in the room can be looked at as leaks and will have to be blocked.
SOUND TRAVEL THROUGH STRUCTURES AND OBJECTS
As sound travels through the air by vibration, then it seems logical that this vibration can be absorbed by, reflected by or transferred to different materials. The walls, floors and ceilings will all have an impact on how sound travels around a room, and can even transport those vibrations to other rooms in a building. Even if a room is encased in a solid material which is resistant against vibrations, such as a concrete basement, the sound can be reflected and maybe even amplified to other areas of the structure.
But, how can these effects be prevented from creating an issue? The answer is of course, soundproofing!
BASIC STEPS IN SOUNDPROOFING
A bare floor surface is more resonant than one covered by a carpet or rug. These soft coverings will help absorb noise but can also add a bit of style to a previously bare room. Hanging wall coverings and curtains can also avoid sound reflections and vibrations through windows and walls without the need to hire a team of professional soundproofing specialists.
Track down areas in the room where sound can come in or escape from; doors, electrical sockets, windows and light fittings, and close off the gaps or holes. Plugging the gaps and holes with a special acoustic sealant that can be purchased in many DIY and building material shops, will make a big difference to how your room sounds. There will be a little difference in price when compared with a regular sealant, however the soundproofing capabilities are much better and can make a huge difference to a room's level of soundproofing.
If your room is an empty canvas and you're doing the soundproofing while you renovate or decorate, think about installing another skin of soundboard or plasterboard, (also known as gypsum board, drywall or sheet rock). This is an efficient and economical soundproofing material due to its dense nature. It's excellent for areas like studies, studios or movie rooms which are being built within a property. It is best to hire a specialist contractor near you to fit the plasterboard unless you have some experience in this kind of work.
One final simple soundproofing remedy is to look at the materials from which your doors are made. While hollow doors are light and comparatively cheap, their soundproofing attributes are not that brilliant. Switching hollow core doors for solid core will appreciably boost the soundproofing of an area with only a little more cost.
PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING GAINSBOROUGH
If you happen to live in a high sound pollution location, such as next to a busy road or near an airport, you will need to be more inventive in your efforts to enhance the soundproofing qualities of your property. You will get the best soundproofing results by hiring the expertise of a professional soundproofing specialist.
The initial questions you can expect to be asked are:
- What type of room or area do you wish to soundproof? Does it have a fully lined concrete wall, a brick wall or a plasterboarded partition wall etc.
- How big is the area requiring soundproofing?
- From which direction do the noises appear to be coming? i.e. Through the walls, ceiling, floor, doors or windows or a mixture of all.
- What are the specific noises that you need to be soundproofed? i.e. Is it outside noises such as street noise, overflying aircraft, next door neighbours etc, or is it from inside your home such as a music studio or family room.
With answers to these queries a good quality soundproofing specialist in Gainsborough will offer you solutions for your situation, and just as important, your spending budget. There will be different solutions for each of the main key areas of the space you wish to soundproof.
PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING OF FLOORS, WALLS and CEILINGS
To soundproof any type of room requires two key components:
- Lower the effect of sound amplification, vibration and reflection by solid surfaces.
- Update and enhance the amount of sound absorption.
A site survey is going to be necessary to examine the aspects to be improved.
The installer will work out ways to add materials that have different masses and densities to improve the sound absorption properties of the area. This additional mass will include ways to enhance absorption of the sound energy by means of acoustic foam or rubber to gain the maximum impact of sound reduction.
Voids between joists might need insulating to remove resonation gaps between them. Wall cavities or flooring and ceiling voids can all be assimilated with a drum, where the space acts as an amplifying area for undesired sounds.
Mixed layers of differing density and mass materials work better at absorbing sound than a single layer of one material type. This is due to the fact that different materials react better with varying frequencies and will provide a much better overall solution to your soundproofing exploits.
The Building Regulations (Part E) focus on the soundproofing of residential properties, and will need to be observed by any soundproofing company in Gainsborough. These legislation have to be followed so as to protect yourself and neighbours from the harmful effects of noise pollution.
Trade associations in the soundproofing sector that offer qualifications, guidance and training are the Institute of Acoustics (IOA) and the Association of Noise Consultants (ANC). Only those Gainsborough businesses that have been appraised and approved by these organisations for reliability, professionalism and quality are allowed to display the logo.
