Before we can identify methods for eliminating sound pollution, it will help if we understand just how sound travels.

Soundproofing Barton-upon-Humber Lincolnshire (DN18)

There are only a couple of ways in which sound can be transmitted around a home:

1. Through the air by vibration of air molecules.

2. Through the vibration of objects or materials.

As dolphin and whale song demonstrates, sound also penetrates long distance through water, but unless your intention is to soundproof an aquarium or pool we will look only at the techniques of soundproofing structures and rooms.


Sound can be transmitted out of and into a room through gaps around doors, ill fitting windows, open air-ducting and even electrical sockets and switches. What we hear as sound is essentially air molucules being vibrated and being picked up by our ear drum. It does not matter whether it's children playing, heavy machinery, passing aircraft, music playing or busy traffic, they all generate and transmit sound in the same way.

Any gaps in a room can be looked at as leaks and will need to be plugged.


We know that sounds are just the vibrations of air being picked up by the ear, but those vibrations are also transferred to solid materials. Sound can be transferred around a building from its source by the vibration of ceilings, walls and floors. Even in a room that's built from a solid material which is resistant against vibrations, such as a concrete lined cellar, the sound can sometimes be transmitted and perhaps even amplified to other parts of the property.

However, how can these effects be prevented from causing a problem? The solution is obviously, soundproofing!


Think about covering bare floors, which reflect and resonate sound, with a rug or carpet. Not only can such a simple and straightforward solution help reduce your problem with noise, but it can also perk up the room. Wall coverings or window drapes can also be employed to improve soundproofing and are simple to install.

Finding and plugging any gaps around the room, think windows, doors, light fittings and sockets, is also a straightforward task for a competent DIY enthusiast. There are some unique acoustic sealants available to buy that suppress the sound waves, and don't transfer them to surrounding materials. They may be a tad more pricey than standard sealants or plaster, but they are worth it for their soundproofing qualities.

For those of you who are redecorating a room or renovating a property, consider the soundproofing properties of adding an extra layer of plasterboard or soundboard, (also called sheet rock, gyproc or drywall), while you're undertaking the work. This is a fairly dense type of boarding which is a perfect and economic soundproofing material. It's ideal for areas such as music studios, movie rooms or studies being built within your home in Barton-upon-Humber. If you do decide to use plasterboard to help with your soundproofing it is a good idea to employ a specialist fitter in Barton-upon-Humber, to gain the maximum possible benefit from its installation.

Soundproofer Quotes in Barton-upon-Humber Lincolnshire

One last simple soundproofing treatment is to look at the materials your doors are made of. Whilst hollow doors are light and relatively affordable, their soundproofing qualities aren't the best. Solid wood doors, while a bit more expensive, can do wonders for improving the soundproofing in a room.


If the sound levels are extreme in your area, on account of aircraft passing overhead, or heavy traffic on a nearby road for instance, then more serious ways to deal with the excess noise will need to be explored. You will receive the very best soundproofing results by retaining the expertise of an experienced soundproofing specialist.

Soundproofer Near Barton-upon-Humber Lincolnshire

They should ask the following four questions during the initial assessment of your needs:

  1. What is the size of the space or room that needs to be soundproofed?
  2. From which direction does the noise seem to be coming? i.e. Through the floors, doors, walls, ceiling or windows or a mix of all of these.
  3. What are the specific sounds that you need to be soundproofed? i.e. Is it external noises such as next door neighbours, street noise, overflying aircraft etc, or is it from inside your home such as a home cinema or music room.
  4. What type of area or room do you need to soundproof? Is it a fully lined concrete wall, a stud partition wall or a brick wall etc.

A certified soundproofing contractor in Barton-upon-Humber will consider all these points to offer remedies for your sound issues over a range of budgets. They will offer you different methods to soundproof each of the troublesome areas within your home.


Two key strategies are required to soundproof any type of space or room:

  1. Lessen the effect of sound reflection, vibration and amplification by hard surfaces.
  2. Update and improve the level of sound absorption.

To precisely analyse the soundproofing areas that need improvement, a site survey should be carried out by a soundproofing expert.

The experts will figure out ways of adding materials that have different densities and masses to increase the sound absorption of the room. The use of acoustic rubbers and foams of different density and mass will help in absorbing noises and reduce reflections and transmission sources.

The insulation between any voids will be upgraded or improved to lower the sound resonation and amplification of these "sound boxes". Wall cavities or flooring and ceiling voids can all be likened to a drum, where the space inside acts as an amplifying area for any unwanted sounds.

It's better to use combined layers of different densities to soak up undesired sounds than a solitary layer made from one material. This is because different frequencies are affected by different materials, therefore a range of densities, layers and shapes within your soundproofing armoury are needed for the best results.

All soundproofing specialists in Barton-upon-Humber will be needing to follow the guidelines for residential properties specified by the Building Regulations (Part E). These requirements have to be followed so as to protect yourself and others from being negatively impacted by noise pollution.

Keep an eye out for contractors showing the logos of the Association of Noise Consultants or the Institute of Acoustics to be sure you're using a business that's fully qualified and knowledgeable in the soundproofing sector. A reliable soundproofing specialist in Barton-upon-Humber will have been checked for the professionalism and quality of their workmanship to have been accepted as a member of these trade bodies.

Acoustic Mineral Wool

Acoustic mineral wool (AMW) is one of the most versatile materials on the market for the soundproofing of homes in Barton-upon-Humber and has a number of different applications for your noise reduction needs. Designed specifically for installation in the cavity spaces of ceilings, floors and walls, acoustic mineral wool is effective in absorbing sound waves, dampening vibrations and enhancing acoustic performance.

Acoustic Mineral Wool Barton-upon-Humber

Generally available in "slabs" of 1200mm x 600mm, acoustic mineral wool also comes in several thicknesses (25mm, 50mm, 75mm and 100mm). Often partly made from recycled materials (approximately 20%), acoustic mineral wool is non-flammable and is chemically inert. It does not encourage the development of mould, bacteria or fungi, nor does it have a reaction with any substances or materials that it comes into close contact with (i.e. plastics, metal wall ties, masonry or brickwork).

When employed as a sound absorbing infill between stud partitioning, floor joists and suspended ceilings, AMW is particularly effective, and it's well-known in the building industry for its fire, acoustic and thermal insulation qualities. When it comes to separating walls and floors, and when used in partnership with other acoustic products, acoustic mineral wool can help in abiding by The Building Regulations (Part E).
