Soundproofer Wombwell South Yorkshire (S73): If your Wombwell home is being affected by noise, maybe you should look into installing or upgrading your soundproofing to bring a new sense of tranquility to your studio, home office, bedroom or living room. Alternatively you might wish to soundproof a single room to keep noise in, such as in a home cinema or family room, to avoid disturbing others. No matter what soundproofing requirements are needed, it's vital for everybody's peace of mind.
It is important to realise how sound travels and is transmitted around a building before it's possible to identify solutions to stop it from happening.
There are only two ways by which sound can be transmitted around a home:
1. By vibration of solid materials and objects.
2. By the vibration of air molecules.
As dolphin and whale songs can show, sound also travels through water, however unless your intention is to soundproof an aquarium or pool we'll just look at the methods of soundproofing buildings and rooms.
SOUND TRAVELLING THROUGH THE AIR
If you look around the room to be soundproofed and detect heating ducts, gaps around doors, ill fitted windows and even electrical switches and sockets, these are all aspects that can cause the transmission of sound. Any noise vibrates the air molecules and this vibration is what we identify and hear as sound. All sounds are moved through the air in the same fashion; it does not matter if it's nearby traffic, passing aircraft, heavy machinery, kids playing or music playing that generates the sound.
It is helpful to visualise a room as a boat and inspect it carefully for leaks that need to be plugged before you can dare to sail it.
SOUND TRAVEL THROUGH STRUCTURES AND OBJECTS
As sound moves through the air by vibrations, then it seems reasonable to assume that such vibrations can be transferred to, reflected by or absorbed by different materials. Sound can be transmitted around a building from its original source through the vibration of walls, ceilings and floors. Even a room made of solid concrete, such as a basement, can generate a resonance path which transports sound waves, and sometimes amplify them, to other areas of a building.
So, how can we stop these sound vibrations having an impact on other people? Soundproofing obviously.
SIMPLE STEPS IN SOUNDPROOFING
If you've got bare floor surfaces or floorboards, think about covering them with carpet or putting down a few rugs to help reduce any vibrations and sound reflections. Such a simple solution can enhance a room and help to dampen down any noise to boot. Wall coverings or window drapes can also be employed to boost soundproofing and are easy to install and maintain.
Search for areas in the rooms where sound can escape or come in; windows, light fittings, electrical sockets and doors, and stop up the gaps or holes. There are special acoustic sealants available on the market which absorb the sound waves, and don't transmit them to surrounding materials. They may be a little more expensive than regular plaster or sealants, but they are worth it for their soundproofing efficiency.
For those of you redecorating a room or renovating a property, look at the soundproofing gains of adding an extra layer of soundboard or plasterboard, (also called drywall, gypsum board or sheet rock), whilst you are tackling this work. This is a dense type of board which is an economic and useful soundproofing material. It's excellent if you are putting in a home office, home cinema or games room in your property in Wombwell. If you're not familiar with putting up framing and plasterboard, it's wise to hire a specialist team to guarantee the best soundproofing gains from its use.
One final simple soundproofing solution is to check the materials your doors are made of. While hollow doors are lightweight and comparatively affordable, their soundproofing characteristics are not anything to write home about. Switching hollow doors for solid ones will significantly improve the soundproofing properties of an area with only a minimal extra cost.
PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING WOMBWELL
Some properties, for example those next to busy roads or on aircraft flight paths, have naturally more sound issues and will need other ways to address the dilemma. You'll get the very best soundproofing outcome by employing the services of an established soundproofing specialist.
Be prepared to answer the four following questions during a survey of your particular soundproofing requirements:
- What space needs to be soundproofed? i.e. Is it an attic conversion, a brick walled room, a stud partitioned room or a concrete lined cellar.
- From what direction do the sounds appear to be coming? i.e. Through the walls, flooring, ceiling, doors or windows or a combination of all.
- What is the size of the room or space that must be soundproofed?
- Is it internal sounds or external noise that you need to target? i.e. To reduce neighbours, traffic or passing trains, or is it from internally created sounds from a home cinema or music room for instance.
Your answers to such questions will allow you to receive price quotes for the various available solutions to suit your circumstances. There'll be different remedies for each of the key areas the space you want to soundproof.
PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING OF WALLS, FLOORS and CEILINGS
There are two areas that need to be addressed to soundproof any room:
- Minimise sound the reverberation and amplification of sound.
- Update and improve the amount of sound absorption.
Doing this requires an on-site survey to verify which areas need developing from the present state.
Solutions identified by the survey will probably include adding some materials of different densities and masses to help boost the soundproofing qualities of the area. Soundproofing can be improved by the application of acoustic rubber and foam which absorbs excess noise and enhances and the sound quality of a space.
Insulation between any existing voids will be upgraded or improved to lessen the noise amplification and resonation of these "sound boxes". Floor and ceiling voids and cavities in walls can all be likened to a drum, where the space inside acts like an amplification source for any unwelcome sounds.
Soundproofing qualities are maximised if multiple layers of varying density materials are utilised, as opposed to installing only one sort of material. This is because the various frequencies are absorbed differently by different materials, therefore a diversity of layers, shapes and densities within your soundproofing armoury are necessary for the best results.
