Soundproofer Haslingden Lancashire (BB4): If your Haslingden property is being affected by noise, maybe you should think about installing or upgrading your soundproofing to bring a new sense of tranquility to your bedroom, home office, studio or lounge. In some instances you might be looking at soundproofing so that you do not disturb others from a home cinema, music room or children's room. Whichever soundproofing requirements are needed, it will be essential for everybody's sanity and peace of mind.
Before we are able to identify strategies for eliminating sound pollution, we need to understand just how sound travels and is transmitted.
There are only a couple of ways in which sound can move around a room:
1. By vibration of solid materials and structures.
2. The vibration or air molecules through the air.
Sound can also be transmitted through water, but unless you're planning to soundproof an aquarium or pool we will just deal with the isolation via materials and air.
SOUND THROUGH THE AIR
Significant amounts of sound can be transmitted into and out of a room through single glazed windows, gaps around doors, open air-ducting and even electrical sockets and light fittings. What we identify and hear as sound is in fact the vibration of air molecules reaching our ear drums. It does not matter whether it's music, passing aircraft, heavy machinery, children playing or road traffic, they all create and transmit sound in the same way.
You must therefore imagine a room as a boat and carefully inspect it for leaks that need sealing before you can sail it.
SOUND TRAVEL THROUGH STRUCTURES AND OBJECTS
We know that sounds are simply the vibrations of air being picked up by the ear, but those vibrations are also reflected by or transferred to solid objects. The walls, ceilings and floors will all affect how sound travels around an area, and may even transmit those vibrations to other rooms in a building. Care must be taken with solid concrete or brick walls, such as a cellar, since sound can be transmitted and amplified to other rooms in your home.
How do we stop this sound transference affecting others? Soundproofing obviously.
SIMPLE STEPS IN SOUNDPROOFING
Consider covering a bare floor surface, which resonates and reflects sound, with a carpet or rug. These soft coverings and rugs will help soak up noise but can also add a touch of style to a previously bare room. Wall coverings or window drapes can also be used to enhance soundproofing and are easy to install.
Track down areas in the rooms where noise can escape or come in; electrical sockets, light fittings, windows and doors, and close off the gaps. Stopping up the gaps and holes with an acoustic sealant that can be purchased in many DIY outlets and builders merchants, can make a huge difference to sound transmission in your rooms. Acoustic sealants can be a touch more expensive than regular sealant products, but the special design has far greater soundproofing performance and is worth the extra cost.
For anyone redecorating a room or renovating a property, consider the soundproofing properties of adding another skin of plasterboard or soundboard, (also known as gyproc, sheet rock or drywall), while you're carrying out this project. Plasterboard is a very dense material that is both effective and economical for soundproofing purposes. It's terrific for areas like studios, movie rooms or studies which are being built within a property. If you aren't proficient in fitting plasterboard and framing, it is generally better to hire a professional team to guarantee you the optimum soundproofing results from its installation.
The final solution for DIY enthusiasts is to look at the doors in your property in Haslingden. While hollow doors are light and relatively cheap, their soundproofing characteristics aren't the best. Exchanging hollow doors for solid ones will noticeably improve the soundproofing of an area with only a small extra cost.
PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING HASLINGDEN
If the level of sound pollution is high in your area, on account of aircraft passing overhead, or traffic noise from a nearby road for example, then more severe methods to combat the excess noise may have to be explored. You'll obtain the best soundproofing outcome by hiring the expertise of a certified soundproofing company.
The initial questions you should be asked are:
- What is the area you want to soundproof made from? (i.e. a brick wall, a fully lined concrete wall or a stud partition wall).
- What sounds or noise are you trying to subdue? i.e. External issues like passing trains, neighbours, street noise etc, or sounds inside your home from a music studio or family room.
- How big is the space requiring soundproofing?
- Where is the majority of the noise coming from? The flooring, ceiling, doors, walls or windows.
Your answers to such queries will enable you to get itemised quotes for the different solutions available that match your requirements. There'll be distinct remedies for each of the main key areas of the space that you want to soundproof.
PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING OF WALLS, FLOORS and CEILINGS
2 key approaches are needed to soundproof any size of space or room:
- Lessen the effect of sound reflection, amplification and vibration by solid surfaces.
- Improve and maximise the amount of sound absorption.
This requires an on-site survey to see which areas require improving from the present condition.
The specialists will figure out ways to add materials with different masses and densities to maximise the sound absorption of the area. Soundproofing will be boosted by the installation of acoustic foam and rubber which will absorb soundwaves and improve and a room's sound quality.
Any noticeable voids in the room might need some sort of muffling material to be installed between them to lessen sound resonation. Floor and ceiling voids and wall cavities can all be likened to a drum, where the space inside acts as an amplifying area for any undesired sounds.
Mixed layers of materials with different densities and masses do a better job of absorbing sound than a solitary layer of one material type. The various materials will eliminate different sound frequencies and provide a more balanced feeling and auditory experience to a room.
The Building Regulations (Part E) regulate the soundproofing of residential properties, and must be applied by any installation company in Haslingden. This set of regulations is a requirement in law to protect your neighbours and yourself from the negative effects of noise pollution in a setting where folks work and live.
