Before we are able to discover methods for eliminating sound pollution, it would be a good idea to understand just how sound travels and is transmitted.

Soundproofing Burnham Buckinghamshire (SL2)

Sound basically moves in two ways around a home:

1. By vibration of solid materials and objects.

2. In open spaces by movement of air.

As dolphin and whale songs can show, sound also travels long distances through water, but unless you wish to soundproof a pool or aquarium we will just look at the methods of soundproofing structures and rooms.


Any gaps around doors, open ducting, ill fitting windows and even electrical switches and sockets can all be responsible for the transmission of sound outside or into a room. All noise vibrates the air molecules and these vibrations are what we identify and hear as sound. It matters not whether it's music playing, passing aircraft, heavy machinery, children playing or traffic, they all create and transmit sound in the same way.

Any gaps within a room can be considered to be a leak and will need to be plugged.


We now know that sounds are just the vibration of air being processed by the ear, but that vibration is also transferred to solid objects. The ceilings, walls and floors will all affect how sound moves around a room, and can even transport that vibration to other parts of a building. Even in a room that's encased in a dense material that's somewhat resistant to sound vibrations, such as a concrete lined basement, the sound can sometimes be reflected and possibly even amplified to other areas of the structure.

How can we prevent these vibrations and sounds from having an adverse effect on other folks? Soundproofing is the answer.


Think about covering a bare floor surface, which reflects and resonates sound, with a carpet or rug. Such a simple and straightforward solution can help to damp down any noise and spruce up the room at the same time. Hanging curtains and wall coverings can also damp down sound reflections and vibrations through windows and walls without the need for a professional team of soundproofing specialists.

Track down areas in the room where noise can come in or escape from; door frames, light fittings, sockets and windows, and close off the gaps. There are some unique acoustic sealants available to buy which absorb the sound waves, and don't transmit them to the surrounding materials. There could be a considerable difference in price compared to a standard sealant, but the soundproofing capabilities are significantly better and will make a huge difference to a room's soundproofing.

If the room you are working on is an empty canvas and you're doing the soundproofing while you decorate or renovate, look at installing a layer of soundboard or plasterboard, (also called gypsum board, drywall or sheet rock). Plasterboard is a dense material that is both economical and efficient for soundproofing an area. It is perfect if you are setting up a games room, cinema room or home office in your property in Burnham. If you are not proficient in fitting plasterboard and studding, it is generally better to employ a professional Burnham contractor to guarantee the best soundproofing improvements from its use.

Soundproofing Underlay Burnham

One of the least troublesome ways of adding a bit of soundproofing to your house in Burnham is through the installation of soundproofing or acoustic underlays. This can be used on wooden or concrete floors and can be laid underneath vinyl planks, laminate, engineered wood, carpet, and other flooring types.

When there is lots of impact noise rather than airborne noise, soundproofing underlay is especially beneficial. The current use of hard floor finishes means that impact noise pollution is becoming an ever-increasing problem for householders in Burnham. This is especially problematic in rooms upstairs, and the kind of noise issues we are referring to here is moving furniture, general foot traffic and kids running around.

Do not be deceived by unscrupulous carpet distributors, who might attempt to sell you normal carpet underlay as a cure for your noise issues - this type of product should never be mistaken for genuine acoustic or soundproofing underlay. If the noise problems you're experiencing are significant, be sure to buy a quality soundproofing underlay from a respectable supplier.

While the installation of acoustic underlay can be extremely effective in reducing impact noise within a dwelling, airborne noise such as blaring televisions, deafening music and constant talking, can be a different kettle of fish, with some products being superior to others and enjoying varying levels of success. Accordingly, before buying a product it's vital to establish the precise sorts of noise you're trying to minimise, and discuss this with the supplier or soundproofing specialist.
