Before we can discover strategies for reducing sound pollution, we should understand just how sound travels and is transmitted.

Soundproofing Calstock Cornwall (PL18)

Sound is able to move in only two ways:

1. The vibration or air molecules through the air.

2. Through the vibration of objects or materials.

As whale and dolphin songs can show, sound also travels through water, but unless your aim is to soundproof a swimming pool or aquarium we'll just look at the methods of soundproofing rooms and structures.


Sound can be transferred into and out of a room through open air-ducting, ill fitted windows, gaps around doors and even electrical switches and sockets. What we hear and identify as sound is basically air molucules being vibrated and reaching our ear drums. It does not matter if it's children playing, aircraft, road traffic, machinery or music playing, they all generate and transmit sound in the same way.

Any holes within a room can be viewed as leaks and will need to be plugged.


Sound waves can additionally be reflected by, absorbed by or transferred to solid materials and structures. Sound can be transmitted around a dwelling from its source by the vibration of walls, ceilings and floors. Care must be taken with brick or solid concrete walls, such as a cellar, as sound can be transmitted and amplified to other areas of your home.

So, what's the easiest way to stop these sound vibrations from affecting others? Soundproofing of course.


Consider covering bare floors, which reflect and resonate sound, with a carpet or rug. These soft coverings and rugs will help absorb noises but can also add a touch of elegance to a previously bare room. Window drapes and wall coverings can also be employed to improve soundproofing and are simple to fit and maintain.

Locating and sealing any holes or gaps around the rooms, think sockets, light fittings, windows and doors, is also a simple task for a skilled DIY'er. There are some special acoustic sealants available on the market which absorb the sound waves, and don't transfer them to the surrounding materials. There could be a considerable difference in the price compared to a regular sealant, however the soundproofing abilities are far better and will make a massive difference to a room's level of soundproofing.

If your room is an empty canvas and you are soundproofing while you decorate or renovate, think about putting up a layer of plasterboard or soundboard, (also known as sheet rock, drywall or gypsum board). This is an economic and efficient soundproofing material owing to its dense nature. If you are putting in a games room, home cinema or home office then plasterboard can help reduce sound transference to and from that room, and can be readily decorated after installation. If you aren't proficient in fitting plasterboard and studding, it is advisable to hire a professional Calstock contractor to guarantee the optimum soundproofing benefits from its use.

The last solution for DIY enthusiasts is to check out the doors within your home in Calstock. Even though hollow doors are light and relatively cheap, their soundproofing qualities are not anything to write home about. If you are able to change to solid core doors you'll discover that it boosts your soundproofing more cheaply than some other solutions.


Some homes, for instance those on aircraft flight-paths or next to busy roads, have naturally more sound issues and will need other ways to solve the situation. The best solution for resolving these problems is to get in touch with a professional soundproofing and acoustic contractor from your local region.

The first questions you should be asked are:

  1. What are the dimensions of the area or room that must be soundproofed?
  2. What sounds or noise are you seeking to eliminate? i.e. External issues like aircraft, next door neighbours, road noise etc, or sounds within your property from a music studio or family room.
  3. What is the space you wish to soundproof made from? (i.e. a lined concrete wall, a brick wall or a plasterboarded partition wall).
  4. Where exactly is the main source of sound coming from? i.e. Overhead, through the floors, windows, ceiling, doors or walls, or a combination of all sorts of things.

Your answers to these questions will allow you to receive estimates for the different solutions available that match your circumstances. The areas of your room that are responsible for the biggest problems may each require different solutions.


To soundproof any sort of room requires two key strategies:

  1. Minimise sound reverberation and amplifying.
  2. The absorption of sound will have to be maximised.

This requires an on-site survey to determine precisely what areas need improving from the present state.

The installer will look at ways of adding materials that have different masses and densities to maximise the sound quality of the area. Soundproofing will be boosted by the addition of acoustic rubber and foam which absorbs excess noise and improves and a room's sound quality.

The insulation between any existing voids will be improved or upgraded to lower the noise resonation and amplification of these "sound boxes". If you envision such spaces as similar to a drum or wooden cajon then you will see that by leaving floor or ceiling joist spaces and wall cavities open, you are effectively creating a sound amplifying area.

It is best to use combined layers of different densities to absorb undesirable noises than a single layer made from one soundproofing material. The various materials will reduce different sound frequencies and provide a more balanced feeling and auditory experience to a room.

The Building Regulations (Part E) focus on the soundproofing of domestic properties, and must be followed by any soundproofing firm in Calstock. Such requirements must be adopted so as to protect yourself and neighbours from being negatively impacted by sound pollution.

Keep an eye out for contractors bearing the logos of the Association of Noise Consultants (ANC) or the Institute of Acoustics (IOA) to make sure you are dealing with a business which is knowledgable and fully qualified in the soundproofing industry. Only those Calstock companies that have been appraised and approved by these trade organisations for quality, reliability and professionalism are allowed to display the logo.
