Before we can identify methods for combating sound pollution, we need to understand how sound travels and is transmitted.

Soundproofing Axbridge Somerset (BS26)

Sound basically moves in two ways around a home:

1. Around and within a solid object by reflection and vibration.

2. By the vibration of air molecules.

Although sound also travels through liquids, unless you're wanting to reduce noises from a pool or aquarium, we'll only be concerned with how to reduce sound transmission in the rooms of a building.


Sounds can be transmitted into and out of a room through single glazed windows, gaps around doors, heating ducts and even light fittings and electrical sockets. All sounds and noise will create the vibration and movement of the molecules in the air, and it is this that we identify and hear. All sounds travel through the air in this same manner; it does not matter if it's aircraft, music playing, traffic, children playing or machinery that creates the sound.

You should therefore visualise a room as a boat and carefully inspect it for leaks that need sealing before you can sail it.


We all know that sounds are simply the vibration of air being picked up by the ear, but that vibration is also transferred to solid objects. Sound can be moved around a building from its source via the vibration of floors, walls and ceilings. Care has to be taken with brick or solid concrete walls, such as in basements, since sound can be reflected and sometimes even amplified to other rooms in your property.

So, how can we stop this resonation affecting others? Soundproofing of course.


If you have bare floors or floorboards, consider covering them with carpet or laying a few rugs to help reduce any sound reflections and vibrations. These soft coverings and rugs will help absorb sounds but can also add a touch of style to a previously bare room. Window drapes and wall coverings can also be used to boost soundproofing and are easy to install.

Finding and stopping up any gaps in the rooms, think light fittings, door frames, sockets and windows, is also an easy task for a skilled do-it-yourselfer. There are some special acoustic sealants available on the market which absorb the sound waves, and don't transmit them to surrounding materials. There might be a considerable difference in the price in comparison with a regular sealant, but the soundproofing capabilities are a lot better and can make a huge difference to a room's level of soundproofing.

If you're luckily enough to be redecorating or renovating while dealing with your soundproofing requirements, then look into the possibility of installing an extra layer of plasterboard (also referred to as drywall, sheet rock or gyproc). This is an economic and efficient soundproofing material due to its dense nature. It's effective if you are setting up a games room, home cinema or home office in your home in Axbridge. If you do decide on plasterboard to help with your soundproofing it is advisable to hire a specialist fitter in Axbridge, to get the maximum possible effect from its installation.

Soundproofer Quotes in Axbridge Somerset

Last but not least you should inspect all doors in the rooms that you're soundproofing. While hollow doors are light and fairly affordable, their soundproofing characteristics are not anything to write home about. Solid wood doors, while a tad more expensive, can have a substantial effect on the soundproofing qualities of a room.


If the sound pollution is excessive in your location, on account of aircraft passing overhead, or heavy traffic on a nearby road for instance, then more severe methods to combat the excess noise will need to be explored. This is when employing the services of an experienced soundproofing company will deliver the best results.

The initial questions you should be asked are:

  1. Where exactly is the primary source of the sound emanating from? i.e. Overhead, through the ceiling, floors, windows, doors or walls, or a combination of everything.
  2. Is it internal sounds or external noise that you need to address? i.e. To suppress aircraft, traffic or noisy neighbours, or is it from internally created sounds from a home cinema or teenagers bedroom for instance.
  3. What area needs to be soundproofed? i.e. Is it a brick walled room, an attic conversion, a concrete lined basement or a stud partitioned room.
  4. How big is the area that you need to be soundproofed?

With honest answers to these queries a decent soundproofing installer in Axbridge will offer you solutions to suit your situation, and just as importantly, your spending budget. There will be distinct solutions for each of the main key areas of the room you want to soundproof.


Two key approaches are needed to soundproof any size of room or space:

  1. Reduce the effect of sound vibration, amplification and reflection by hard surfaces.
  2. Maximise sound absorption.

To accurately assess the areas that need to be improved, a site survey should be completed by a soundproofing expert.

Conclusions from the survey will include adding some materials of different masses and densities to help improve the soundproofing characteristics of the area. Soundproofing can be enhanced by the installation of acoustic rubber and foam which absorbs soundwaves and improves and the sound quality of a room.

Any voids in the room may need some sort of muffling material to be installed between them to lower noise resonation. If you visualise these spaces like a drum then you'll understand that by leaving wall cavities and floor or ceiling joist spaces open, you are effectively creating a sound amplifying area.

Soundproofing capabilities are maximised if multiple layers of varying density materials are employed, as opposed to installing a single kind of material. This is due to the fact that the different material densities react better with various frequencies and will provide a much better acoustic solution to your soundproofing project.

All soundproofing contractors in Axbridge must follow the legislation for domestic buildings specified by the Building Regulations (Part E). These regulations have the purpose of protecting other residents in the area from the effects of noise pollution.

Keep an eye out for companies displaying the logos of the Association of Noise Consultants (ANC) or the Institute of Acoustics (IOA) to be sure you're using a business that's knowledgable and fully qualified in the soundproofing sector. Any Axbridge firm displaying IOA or ANC accreditation has been vetted to make certain they provide the highest quality, standards and reliability of workmanship within the soundproofing industry.
