Soundproofer Wath-upon-Dearne South Yorkshire (S63): If your home in Wath-upon-Dearne is being impacted by noise, perhaps you should think about putting in some soundproofing to bring a new sense of tranquility to your studio, home office, bedroom or lounge. In some cases you might be looking at soundproofing so you do not disturb others from a children's room, home cinema or music room. Whatever your requirements, soundproofing will help to maintain your peace of mind and sanity.
Before we can discover techniques for countering sound pollution, we need to understand precisely how sound travels and is transmitted.
Sound is able to move in only two ways:
1. Within and around a solid object by reflection and vibration.
2. The vibration or air molecules through the air.
Sound can also be transmitted through water, but unless you're looking at soundproofing a pool or aquarium we will simply deal with the isolation through materials and air.
SOUND THROUGH THE AIR
If you glance around the room or area to be soundproofed and notice open ducting, single glazed windows, gaps around doors and even light fittings and electrical sockets, these are all aspects that can cause the transmission of sound. All noise and sound will create movement and vibration of the air molecules, and it is this that we hear and identify. Regardless of the source of the noise; heavy machinery, traffic, music playing, aircraft or children playing, all sounds are generated and transmitted in precisely the same manner.
If you try and imagine your room as a bucket, you are attempting to find any leaks to seal before you can fill it up with water.
SOUND TRAVEL THROUGH OBJECTS AND STRUCTURES
We know that sounds are just the vibrations of air being picked up by the ear, however those vibrations are also transferred to solid objects. Sound can be moved around a building from its source by the vibration of ceilings, floors and walls. Even in a room that is encased in a solid material that's resistant against vibrations, such as a concrete cellar, the sound can sometimes be transmitted and perhaps even amplified to other parts of the dwelling.
How should we stop these sounds and vibrations affecting other folks? Soundproofing is the answer.
SIMPLE STEPS IN SOUNDPROOFING
Consider covering bare floors, which reflect and resonate sound, with a carpet or rug. Not only will such a simple and straightforward solution help to reduce your problem with noise, it can also perk up the room. Hanging wall coverings and curtains can also suppress sound vibrations and reflections through windows and walls without the need to hire a team of professional soundproofing installers.
Search for areas in the room where noise can come in or escape from; sockets, light fittings, door frames and windows, and stop up any gaps. Stopping up the gaps and holes with a specialist acoustic sealant found in many DIY centres and builders merchants, can make a huge difference to sound transmission in your rooms. They are a tad more pricey than regular sealants or plaster, but are very useful for their soundproofing qualities.
If you are luckily enough to be redecorating or renovating while considering your soundproofing, then look at installing an additional layer of plasterboard (also known as gyproc, sheet rock or drywall). This is a relatively dense board that is an economic and useful soundproofing material. If you're putting in a cinema room, studio or study then plasterboard will help reduce sound transmission from and to that room, and can be easily decorated after installment. It is better to hire a specialist Wath-upon-Dearne tradesman to fit the plasterboard unless you've some experience in this sort of work.
Last but not least you should examine all doors in the area you're planning to soundproof. If you have hollow doors installed in your rooms you'll find that they can resonate and vibrate with any sound that is aimed at them. If you are able to change to solid core doors you will discover that it boosts your room's soundproofing at little extra cost.

- What are the particular noises that need to soundproofed? i.e. Is it outside noises such as trains, street noise, next door neighbours etc, or is it from within your home such as a family room or music studio.
- What sort of room or property do you wish to soundproof? Does it have a plasterboarded partition wall, a lined concrete wall or a brick wall etc.
- What is the size of the room or space that needs to be soundproofed?

PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING OF CEILINGS, FLOORS and WALLS
To soundproof any kind of room requires 2 key approaches:
- The absorption of sound will have to be increased.
- Lessen the effect of sound amplification, reflection and vibration by solid surfaces.
To precisely analyse the soundproofing areas that require improvement, an on-site survey needs to be carried out by a local soundproofing company.
A professional soundproofer will consider the different methods for adding density and mass to the areas with problems. Soundproofing can be enhanced by the application of acoustic rubber and foam which will absorb sound waves and improve and a room's sound quality.
Insulation between any voids will be upgraded to lessen the noise amplification and resonation of these "sound boxes". If you think of a drum or wooden cajon, you are looking at a noise increasing void surrounded by a resonating material; in essence what you may encounter inside floor and ceiling joists, or cavities in walls.
Mixed layers of materials with different masses and densities work better at absorbing sound than a single material layer of one type. The diverse materials will reduce different sound frequencies and deliver a more harmonious auditory experience and feeling to a room.
