Soundproofer Goole East Yorkshire (DN14): If your property in Goole is being affected by noise, perhaps you should think about putting in some soundproofing to bring a new sense of tranquility to your living room, home office, studio or bedroom. Alternatively you may wish to soundproof a single room to keep noise in, such as in a family room or home cinema, so that others aren't disturbed. Whatever your requirements, soundproofing will help to maintain your sanity and peace of mind.
It's crucial for us to understand how sound travels and is transmitted around an area before it is possible to find techniques to prevent it from occurring.
There are only two ways in which sound can travel around a home:
1. The vibration or air molecules through the air.
2. Around and within a solid object by vibration and reflection.
Sound also travels through water, but unless you are looking at soundproofing a swimming pool or aquarium we will simply consider its isolation through air and materials.
SOUND TRAVELLING THROUGH THE AIR
Any gaps around doors, open ducting, ill fitting windows and even electrical switches and sockets can all affect the transmission of sound into or outside a room. All noise and sounds will initiate movement and vibration of the air molecules, and this is what we hear and identify. No matter what the source of the sound; machinery, music, aeroplanes, busy traffic or kids playing, all sound is generated and transferred in exactly the same way.
You should therefore think of a room as a boat and carefully inspect it for leaks that need sealing before you can sail it.
SOUND TRAVELLING THROUGH OBJECTS AND STRUCTURES
Sound waves can additionally be transferred to, reflected by or absorbed by solid materials and structures. The ceilings, floors and walls will all affect how sound travels around a room, and can even transmit that vibration to other areas of a property. Even a solid concrete room, such as a basement, can create a resonance path which transports any sound waves, and sometimes amplify them, to other rooms in a building.
But, how can these sound transmitting effects be prevented from causing a problem? The solution is naturally, soundproofing!
SIMPLE SOUNDPROOFING STEPS
A bare floor resonates more than one covered by a carpet or rug. These soft coverings and rugs will help to absorb noise and can also add a touch of elegance to a previously bare room. Window drapes and wall coverings can also be employed to enhance soundproofing and are easy to fit and maintain.
Search for areas in the room where noise can come in or escape from; electrical sockets, door frames, light fittings and windows, and seal the gaps. Sealing the holes and gaps with a special acoustic sealant that can be purchased in some DIY centres and builders merchants, can make a huge difference to how your room sounds. Acoustic sealants are inclined to be a touch more expensive than normal sealant products, however the special design has far greater soundproofing performance and is certainly worth the small extra cost.
If your room is a blank canvas and you are soundproofing while you renovate or decorate, think about putting up a layer of soundboard or plasterboard, (also known as gypsum board, drywall or sheet rock). Plasterboard is a dense material that's both effective and economical in soundproofing a room. It's great if you're setting up a study, studio or home cinema in your property in Goole. If you do decide to use plasterboard to help with your soundproofing exploits it is best to bring in a specialist fitter in Goole, to achieve the maximum possible benefit from its installation.
The last DIY solution is to consider the doors in your property in Goole. If you've got hollow doors installed in your rooms you will find that they can vibrate with any sound that is aimed at them. If you're able to change to solid wooden doors you will discover that it boosts your room's soundproofing at little extra cost.
PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING SOLUTIONS GOOLE
If the level of sound pollution is high in your location, on account of traffic noise from a busy road nearby, or aircraft flying over for example, then more substantial ways to reduce the excess noise will have to be investigated. You will receive the very best soundproofing results by employing the services of a professional soundproofing specialist.
The initial questions you can expect to be asked are:
- What room needs soundproofing? i.e. Is it a brick walled room, an attic conversion, a concrete lined cellar or a stud partitioned room.
- Where is most of the noise coming from? The doors, ceiling, walls, windows or floors.
- What are the particular sounds that you need to be soundproofed? i.e. Is it sounds from inside your house such as a family room or teenagers bedroom, or outside noises such as neighbours playing loud music, street noise, passing trains, etc.
- How big is the space you wish to have soundproofed?
A professional soundproofing contractor in Goole will consider all these points to offer solutions to your sound problems for various budgets. They'll provide different methods for soundproofing each of the main trouble spots within your room.
PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING OF WALLS, CEILINGS and FLOORS
2 key strategies are needed to soundproof any sort of space or room:
- Improve and maximise the amount of sound absorption.
- Reduce the ways that sound is reflected off and transmitted through solid surfaces.
To effectively analyse the aspects that need improvement, a site survey should be completed by a professional soundproofing team.
A professional soundproofer will look at the different ways to add density and mass to the problem areas. Soundproofing will be boosted by the application of acoustic rubber, foam and other materials which absorbs excess noise and enhances and the sound quality of a space.
The insulation between any existing voids will be improved or upgraded to reduce the sound amplification and resonation of these "sound boxes". Wall cavities or flooring and ceiling voids can all be assimilated with a drum, where the space inside acts like an amplification source for any unwelcome noise.
It is best to use mixed layers of different densities to soak up unwanted sounds than a single layer fabricated from one soundproofing material. This is because different materials react better with varying frequencies and will deliver a better acoustic resolution to your soundproofing exploits.
Any soundproofing firm in Goole will have to follow the Part E of the Building Regulations, if your property is residential in nature. These regulations have the purpose of protecting other residents in the immediate area from the impact of sound pollution.
Look out for contractors displaying the logos of the Association of Noise Consultants or the Institute of Acoustics to make certain you are using a business that's knowledgable and fully qualified in the soundproofing sector. Only those Goole companies that have been appraised and accredited by these organisations for reliability, quality and professionalism are allowed to bear the logo.
