Soundproofer Hythe Hampshire (CT21): If you're worried by the amount of noise that's assailing your Hythe home, be it in a home office, lounge, bedroom or studio, you need to think about putting in some soundproofing. Conversely you may want to soundproof a specific room to keep load noises in, such as in a home cinema or family room, to avoid disturbing others. Whatever your needs, soundproofing will provide you with peace of mind and sanity.
Before we are able to find ways in which to combat sound pollution, we should understand precisely how sound travels.
Sound basically moves in two ways around a room:
1. Through the air by vibration of air molecules.
2. By vibration of solid materials and objects.
As whale and dolphin song demonstrates, sound also penetrates long distance through water, but unless your intention is to soundproof an aquarium or pool we will look only at the techniques of soundproofing rooms and buildings.
SOUND THROUGH THE AIR
Significant amounts of sound can be transferred into and out of a room through gaps around doors, heating ducts, ill fitted windows and even electrical sockets and light fittings. What we hear as sound is really the vibration of air molecules reaching our ear drums. No matter what the source of the sound; kids playing, heavy machinery, busy traffic, aircraft or music playing, all sound is created and transmitted in exactly the same way.
If you try and visualise your room as if it were a bucket, you're attempting to identify any leaks which need sealing before you fill it up with water.
SOUND TRAVEL THROUGH OBJECTS AND STRUCTURES
As sound moves through the air by vibration, then it seems reasonable to assume that this vibration can be absorbed by, reflected by or transferred to different solid materials. Sound can be moved around a dwelling from its original source via the vibration of floors, ceilings and walls. Care should be taken with solid concrete or brick walls, such as a basement, because sound can be reflected and sometimes even amplified to other rooms in your house.
So, what's the best way to stop this resonation having an impact on others? Soundproofing obviously.
BASIC SOUNDPROOFING STEPS
Think about covering bare floors, which resonate and reflect sound, with a carpet or rug. The rugs or other soft coverings will help soak up noises but can also add a touch of style to a previously bare room. Window drapes and wall coverings can also be employed to boost soundproofing and are simple to install and maintain.
Locating and plugging any holes or gaps in the room, think light fittings, doors, windows and electrical sockets, is also a straightforward job for a capable DIY enthusiast. There are some unique acoustic sealants available to buy which absorb the sound waves, and don't transmit them to surrounding materials. Acoustic sealants are inclined to be a touch more expensive than normal sealant products, however their remarkable soundproofing qualities far outweigh the small additional cost.
If you're going to be renovating or redecorating while dealing with your soundproofing, then look at the possibility of installing an additional skin of plasterboard (also referred to as gypsum board, drywall or sheet rock). Plasterboard is a very dense material that is both economical and efficient in soundproofing a room. If you are putting in a games room, study or cinema room then plasterboard will help to minimise sound transference from and to that room, and can be readily decorated after installation. If you aren't familiar with putting up studding and plasterboard, it's wise to employ a specialist Hythe contractor to guarantee the optimum soundproofing gains from its use.
Last but not least you should examine all doors in the room that you're soundproofing. Although hollow doors are lightweight and comparatively cheap, their soundproofing attributes aren't the best. Changing hollow doors for solid ones will boost the soundproofing attributes of a room with only a little more cost.
PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING HYTHE
Some homes, for example those on aircraft flight-paths or next to busy routes, have naturally more sound issues and will need other ways to address the situation. You will get the best soundproofing results by employing the expertise of an established soundproofing specialist.
They will ask the four following questions during a basic evaluation of your needs:
- Where is the majority of the noise pollution emanating from? The floors, windows, walls, ceiling or doors.
- What type of property or room would you like to soundproof? Does it have a fully lined concrete wall, a brick wall or a plasterboarded partition wall etc.
- How big is the area you want to be soundproofed?
- What are the specific sounds that you need to be soundproofed? i.e. Is it sounds from within your home such as a music room or family room, or external noises such as overflying aircraft, neighbours, road noise, etc.
With honest answers to these questions a good quality soundproofing firm in Hythe will be able to supply you with solutions for your circumstances, and just as important, your budget. Remedies might vary in accordance with the different materials needed for each of the troublesome areas in your environment.
PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING OF CEILINGS, FLOORS and WALLS
There are 2 key areas that must be addressed to soundproof any room or space:
- Update and increase the amount of sound absorption.
- Reduce the ways that sound is transmitted through and reflected by solid surfaces.
This requires an on-site survey to see exactly what areas need improving from the present state.
Solutions from the survey will probably include adding some materials of different densities to help enhance the soundproofing capabilities of the space. This additional mass will help to increase the absorption of noises through the use of acoustic foam or rubber to gain the maximum sound reduction impacts.
The insulation between any voids will be upgraded or improved to lower the noise resonation and amplification of these sound boxes. If you think about a drum for example, you're looking at a noise amplifying void surrounded by a resonating material; essentially what you may encounter within ceiling and floor joists, or wall cavities.
It is far better to use mixed layers of different densities to soak up unwanted sounds than a solitary layer fabricated from one type of material. This is due to the fact that the different material densities react better with varying frequencies and will deliver a better overall resolution to your soundproofing.
Any soundproofing firm in Hythe will need to conform to the Part E of the Building Regulations, if dealing with a domestic property. Such requirements must be followed so as to safeguard yourself and neighbours from being negatively impacted by noise pollution.
Trade bodies in the soundproofing sector who provide guidance, qualifications and training are the Institute of Acoustics (IOA) and the Association of Noise Consultants (ANC). Only those Hythe businesses that have been vetted and accredited by these trade associations for quality, reliability and professionalism are allowed to display the logo.
