Before we are able to discover methods for eliminating sound pollution, we need to understand just how sound travels.

Soundproofing Bramhall Greater Manchester (SK7)

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

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

2. By the vibration of air molecules.

Sound is also transmitted through water, however unless you are planning to soundproof an aquarium or swimming pool we will only concentrate on its isolation through materials and air.

SOUND TRAVEL THROUGH THE AIR

If you glance around the space to be soundproofed and detect ill fitted windows, gaps around doors, open ducting and even light fittings and electrical sockets, these are all causes of sound transmission. All sound and noise will create the vibration and movement of the air molecules, and this is what we hear. All sounds are transmitted through the air in this same fashion; it does not matter if it's music, busy traffic, passing aircraft, children playing or machinery that creates the sound.

It is helpful to think of your room as a boat and carefully inspect it for leaks that require sealing.

SOUND TRAVELLING THROUGH OBJECTS AND STRUCTURES

We now understand that sounds are just the vibrations of air being processed by the ear, but those vibrations are also reflected by or transferred to solid objects. Sound will vibrate the walls, floors and ceilings of your rooms, and may result in a resonating effect that's transmitted beyond the area. Even a room made of solid concrete, such as a basement, can generate a path of resonance which transmits sound waves, and sometimes amplify them, to other rooms in a building.

However, how can these sound transmitting effects be stopped from creating an issue? The answer is obviously, soundproofing!

BASIC STEPS IN SOUNDPROOFING

If you've got bare floors or floorboards, consider covering them with carpet or putting down a few rugs to help reduce any sound reflections and vibrations. The rugs or other soft coverings will help to absorb noise and can also add a bit of style to an otherwise bare room. Hanging wall coverings and curtains can also damp down sound reflections and vibrations through walls and windows without the need to bring in a professional team of soundproofers.

Another inexpensive and DIY resolution is to plug any holes or gaps around electrical sockets, light fittings, doors and windows. There are some special acoustic sealants available to buy that suppress the sound waves, and don't transmit them to the surrounding materials. Acoustic sealants can be a bit more expensive than normal plaster or other sealant products, however their unique soundproofing qualities far outweigh the small extra cost.

If the room you are working on is an empty canvas and you are soundproofing while you decorate or renovate, look at installing a layer of soundboard or plasterboard, (also called gypsum board, sheet rock or drywall). This is an efficient and economical soundproofing material because of its dense nature. It's ideal for areas like movie rooms, home offices or music studios being built within your house in Bramhall. If you're not proficient in fitting studding and plasterboard, it's best to employ a professional Bramhall contractor to guarantee you the optimal soundproofing results from its installation.

The final do-it-yourself solution is to look at the doors within your property in Bramhall. If you have hollow doors in your rooms you'll find that they can vibrate with any sound that is aimed at them. Solid core doors, whilst a tad more expensive, can do wonders for improving the soundproofing qualities of a room.

The first questions you should be asked are:

  1. Where exactly is the main source of the noise emanating from? i.e. Above, through the walls, windows, floors, doors or ceiling, or a combination of all sorts of things.
  2. What space needs to be soundproofed? i.e. Is it a loft conversion, a brick walled room, a plasterboard partition room or a concrete lined cellar.
  3. How big is the area you need to have soundproofed?
  4. What are the particular noises that need to soundproofed? i.e. Is it sounds from inside your home such as a teenagers bedroom or home cinema, or outside noises such as neighbours playing loud music, trains, road noise, etc.

Your answers to these questions will allow you to get estimates for the various available solutions to suit your circumstances. Solutions will vary in accordance with the different materials needed for each of the troublesome areas in your home.

PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING OF WALLS, CEILINGS and FLOORS

There are two key areas that must be dealt with to successfully soundproof any space:

  1. Increase sound absorption.
  2. Minimise sound the amplification and resonating of sound.

This will require a site survey to ascertain which areas need improving from the current condition.

Conclusions from the survey will include adding some materials with different densities and masses to help improve the soundproofing qualities of the space. This extra mass will include ways to improve absorption of the sound energy by the use of acoustic foam or rubber to achieve the maximum sound reduction impacts.

Insulation between any voids will be upgraded to reduce the noise amplification and resonation of these "sound boxes". Wall cavities or flooring and ceiling voids can all be assimilated with a drum, where the space acts as an amplifying area for unwelcome noise.

It is better to use mixed layers of different densities to deaden undesired noises than a single layer made of one sort of 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 required.

The Building Regulations (Part E) focus on the soundproofing of domestic properties, and will have to be followed by any installation company in Bramhall. This set of regulations is a legally binding requirement to protect yourself and neighbours from being affected by noise pollution in a setting where people work and live.

Keep an eye out for contractors displaying the logos of the Institute of Acoustics (IOA) or the Association of Noise Consultants (ANC) to make sure you're dealing with a business that is fully qualified and knowledgeable in the soundproofing industry. A reputable soundproofing firm in Bramhall will have been checked for the quality and professionalism of their workmanship to have become a member of these associations.
