Soundproofer Wisbech Cambridgeshire (PE13): If your Wisbech home is being impacted by noise, perhaps you should consider putting in some soundproofing to bring tranquillity to your bedroom, studio, home office or living room. You might also be concerned about any noise from a family room or home cinema room escaping and disturbing others in the house. In any event, soundproofing is important for peace of mind.
Firstly it will help if we get our heads around precisely how is transmitted and travels before we can identify ways to reduce any loud noise getting into or out of your home.
There are only a couple of ways in which sound can travel 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 shows, sound also travels long distances through water, however unless your aim is to soundproof an aquarium or swimming pool we will just look at the strategies for soundproofing rooms and structures.
SOUND TRAVELLING THROUGH THE AIR
If you glance around the room to be soundproofed and discover gaps around doors, heating ducts, ill fitting windows and even electrical sockets and light fittings, these are all factors that can transfer sound. All noise and sound will initiate movement and vibration of the molecules in the air, and this is what we hear. It matters not whether it's heavy machinery, music, aircraft, road traffic or children playing, they all generate and transfer sound in the same way.
You should therefore think of your room as a boat and carefully inspect it for leaks before sailing off into the sunset.
SOUND TRAVELLING THROUGH OBJECTS AND STRUCTURES
We all know that sounds are merely the vibration of air reaching the ear, but that vibration is also reflected by or transferred to solid objects. The floors, walls and ceilings will all have an impact on how sound travels around an area, and can even transport that vibration to other rooms in a property. Care must be taken with solid brick or concrete walls, such as a cellar or basement, because sound can be transmitted and sometimes even amplified to other parts of your house.
However, how can these effects be stopped from creating an issue? The answer is not surprisingly, soundproofing!
SIMPLE STEPS IN SOUNDPROOFING
If you've got bare floor surfaces or floorboards, consider putting down a few rugs or cover with a carpet to help in reducing any sound reflections and vibrations. Not only can such a simple and straightforward solution help to reduce your noise problem, it can also brighten up the room. Curtains, in particular heavy blackout styles, will also stifle any sounds from invading or escaping the area, cost-effectively and without the need for specialist soundproofing.
Search for areas in the rooms where sound can escape or come in; electrical sockets, door frames, windows and light fittings, and seal up any holes or gaps. Sealing the holes and gaps with a special acoustic sealant that can be purchased in many DIY centres and builders merchants, will make a big difference to how your room sounds. They are a tad more pricey than standard sealants or plaster, but are worth every penny for their soundproofing qualities.
For those of you renovating a property or redecorating a room, consider the soundproofing gains of adding an extra layer of plasterboard or soundboard, (also known as drywall, gyproc or sheet rock), whilst you're undertaking the work. This is an economic and efficient soundproofing material owing to its dense nature. It is ideal for areas like home offices, home cinemas or studios which are being built within a property. If you are not experienced in putting up studding and plasterboard, it's better to use a professional Wisbech contractor to guarantee you the best soundproofing gains from its use.
The final DIY solution is to consider the doors in your home in Wisbech. Whilst hollow doors are light and fairly inexpensive, their soundproofing qualities aren't all that brilliant. Exchanging hollow doors for solid ones will considerably improve the soundproofing characteristics of a room with only a little more cost.
PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING SOLUTIONS WISBECH
Some homes, for example those beside busy roads or on aircraft flight paths, naturally have more sound pollution problems and will need other ways to solve the predicament. This is where retaining the services of a professional soundproofing installer will deliver the best results.
The initial questions you should be asked are:
- Where is the majority of the noise emanating from? The walls, doors, floors, ceiling or windows.
- What is the room you wish to soundproof made from? (i.e. a lined concrete wall, a brick wall or a stud partition wall).
- What sounds or noise are you looking to suppress? i.e. External things such as street noise, passing trains, noisy neighbours etc, or sounds inside your property from a family room or teenagers bedroom.
- How large is the room requiring soundproofing?
With accurate answers to these questions a good soundproofing firm in Wisbech will provide you with solutions for your circumstances, and just as importantly, your spending budget. The parts of your room that are causing the biggest noise issues may each need different remedies.
PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING OF FLOORS, WALLS and CEILINGS
There are two areas that need to be dealt with to successfully soundproof any space or room:
- Lessen the effect of sound reflection, vibration and amplification by hard surfaces.
- Increase sound absorption.
A site survey will be needed to examine the elements that need to be improved.
The team will work out ways to add materials that have different densities and masses to increase the sound quality of the area. Soundproofing will be enhanced by the application of acoustic foam and rubber which will absorb sound waves and enhance and a room's sound quality.
Insulation between any existing voids will be improved or upgraded to lower the sound amplification and resonation of these "sound boxes". If you think of a drum for example, you're looking at a noise amplifying void surrounded by a resonating material; basically what you may encounter inside floor and ceiling joists, or cavities in walls.
Soundproofing qualities are enhanced if multiple layers of different density materials are employed, rather than installing only one type of material. This is due to the fact that different frequencies are affected by different kinds of materials, therefore a diversity of densities, layers and shapes within your soundproofing armoury are required.
Part E of the Building Regulations deal with the soundproofing of domestic properties, and will need to be applied by any installation company in Wisbech. Part E of the Building Regulations is a legally binding requirement to protect yourself and neighbours from being affected by noise pollution in an environment where people live and work.
Watch out for contractors displaying the logos of the Institute of Acoustics or the Association of Noise Consultants to guarantee that you're dealing with a business that's knowledgable and fully qualified in the soundproofing sector. Only those Wisbech businesses that have been vetted and authorised by these trade associations for quality, reliability and professionalism are permitted to bear the logo.
