Before we are able to identify techniques for reducing sound pollution, we need to understand exactly how sound travels and is transmitted.

Soundproofing Appley Bridge Lancashire (WN6)

Sound basically travels in two ways throughout your home:

1. Through the air by vibration of air molecules.

2. By vibration of solid materials and objects.

As dolphin and whale song shows, sound also travels through water, however unless your aim is to soundproof an aquarium or swimming pool we'll look only at the techniques of soundproofing structures and rooms.


Any ill fitting windows, heating ducts, gaps around doors and even electrical sockets and light fittings can all be responsible for the transmission of sound outside or into a room. Any noise vibrates the air molecules and this vibration is what we hear and identify as sound. All sounds are transferred through the air in this same fashion; it does not matter if it's machinery, aircraft, music, busy traffic or children playing that produces the sound.

If you can visualise your room as a bucket, you are attempting to identify any leaks which need sealing before you fill it with water.


Sound waves can also be transferred to, reflected by or absorbed by solid materials and structures. The walls, ceilings and floors will all have an impact on how sound moves around a room, and may even transfer that vibration to other rooms in a building. Even in a room that is built from a dense material that is resistant to vibrations, such as a concrete basement, the sound can sometimes be reflected and even amplified to other areas of the structure.

How do we stop these sound vibrations affecting other people? Soundproofing of course.


Consider covering bare floors, which resonate and reflect sound, with a carpet or rug. Not only can such a simple solution help to reduce your problem with noise, but it can also perk up the room. Hanging wall coverings and curtains can also dampen sound reflections and vibrations through windows and walls without the need for a team of professional soundproofers.

Another economical and DIY solution is to plug any holes around light fittings, sockets, windows and door frames. There are unique acoustic sealants available on the market that suppress the sound waves, and don't transmit them to the surrounding materials. They might be a tad more expensive than regular sealants or plaster, but are worth it for their soundproofing qualities.

For those of you redecorating a room or renovating a property, look at the soundproofing benefits of adding another skin of soundboard or plasterboard, (also known as gyproc, sheet rock or drywall), while you're carrying out this project. Plasterboard is a very dense material that's both economical and efficient for soundproofing a room. If you are fitting a home office, cinema room or music studio then plasterboard can help reduce sound pollution for that room, and can be decorated easily after installment. If you do decide to use plasterboard to help with your soundproofing it is advisable to employ a specialist fitter in Appley Bridge, to gain the maximum possible effect from its installation.

Last but not least you ought to check all doors in the rooms that you're soundproofing. While hollow doors are light and fairly inexpensive, their soundproofing capabilities are not the best. Changing hollow core doors for solid core will considerably improve the soundproofing of a room with only a minimal extra cost.


If you reside in a high sound pollution location, such as near an airport or next to busy roads, you will need to be more inventive in your efforts to increase the soundproofing in your house. You'll obtain the most effective soundproofing results by employing the services of a professional soundproofing company.

Voids between joists might need insulation to remove resonation gaps between them. If you imagine a drum or wooden cajon, you're looking at a noise increasing void enclosed within a resonating material; in essence what you might encounter inside ceiling and floor joists, or wall cavities.

It is better to use combined layers of different density materials to soak up undesired sounds than a single layer made of one sort of soundproofing material. This is due to the fact that the various frequencies are absorbed differently by different materials, therefore a diversity of densities, shapes and layers within your soundproofing panels are needed.

All soundproofing specialists in Appley Bridge must follow the regulations for domestic buildings specified by Part E of the Building Regulations. These legislation have to be observed in order to protect yourself and others from being negatively impacted by noise pollution.

The Association of Noise Consultants and the Institute of Acoustics are trade associations who provide training, qualifications and represent the best in contractors and companies that offer soundproofing services. Only those Appley Bridge companies that have been vetted and accredited by these trade associations for quality, professionalism and reliability are allowed to display the logo.

AMW (Acoustic Mineral Wool)

One of the most versatile products available for the soundproofing of homes in Appley Bridge, AMW (or acoustic mineral wool) has several applications for your noise reduction requirements. Acoustic grade mineral wool is designed specifically for installation in the cavity spaces of floors, walls and ceilings, to improve acoustic performance, absorb airborne sound and dampen vibration.

Acoustic Mineral Wool Appley Bridge

Coming in slabs of 1200mm x 600mm and 25 millimetre, 50 millimetre, 75 millimetre and 100 millimetre thicknesses, AMW is widely available from soundproofing merchants. AMW is safe to use in your house in Appley Bridge, as it is chemically inert and and is non-flammable, it is also environmentally-friendly being made partly using recycled raw materials. It is rare for mould, fungi or bacteria to be found growing in AMW, and it won't have a reaction with metal wall ties, masonry, brickwork, plastics, or other substances or materials that it makes contact with.

Especially effective as a sound absorbing infill when installed in the gaps between suspended ceilings, floor joists and stud partitioning, acoustic mineral wool is widely used in the construction industry for thermal, fire and acoustic insulation. When it comes to separating walls and floors, and in order to observe The Building Regulations (Part E), AMW can be used alongside other acoustic products.

Soundproofing Underlay Appley Bridge

An effective way of adding some soundproofing to your Appley Bridge home, without any major disruption, is to install acoustic or soundproofing underlay. Both concrete and wood floors are suitable surfaces for these underlays, and they can be laid under carpet, engineered wood, laminate and vinyl planks.

Soundproofing underlay is particularly effective where there's a lot of impact noise as opposed to airborne noise. In recent times, the increased popularity of "hard" floor finishes has contributed to more complaints about impact noise in lots of Appley Bridge properties. This is particularly problematic when coming from rooms upstairs, and the kind of noise that we are talking about here is general foot traffic, shifting furniture and children stomping around.

Do not be drawn in by unprincipled carpet companies, who might attempt to sell you normal carpet underlay as a solution to your noise issues - this sort of product shouldn't be confused with genuine soundproofing underlay, which is what you really need. Make sure you buy a quality soundproofing underlay, if you've got serious problems with noise.

Even though impact noise can be noticeably reduced with acoustic underlays, they have differing degrees of success when it comes to incessant talking, deafening music and booming TV's, and other airborne noises. You should discuss the precise kinds of noise you're striving to reduce with your supplier or soundproofing expert, and this should help you pick the right underlay for your noise beating goals.

Soundproofing Foam Appley Bridge

I was intrigued to learn recently that a common search phrase entered on Google and Yahoo was "soundproofing foam", and local searches included things like "soundproofing foam Appley Bridge" and "acoustical foam Appley Bridge". That's really quite interesting, because it would suggest that Appley Bridge property owners are under the impression that acoustic foam is a suitable product for solving their noise issues.

The last thing I am looking to do is ruin your day, but if you're convinced that the racket from your noisy next door neighbours in Appley Bridge can be eliminated with acoustic foam, then you are some way off the mark.

Often sold in tile or sheet form, this "egg box" shaped foam that you sometimes see on sale is not actually designed for blocking out noise, but is really meant for use in music studios and similar settings, to improve the acoustic performance of a room, and help reduce amplifying and echoing. This type of soundproofing foam is not efficient at preventing noise from passing through a neighbours wall, or stopping sound from travelling freely around the rooms of your house. As acoustic foam is spongy and porous, it actually permits sound to pass right through it, and does not have the density to block it.

This product might however be useful for you if you have a music studio in your house in Appley Bridge, in which case you will discover that it can be purchased in various sheet sizes and thicknesses.
