Soundproofer Carmarthen Wales (SA31): If the level of noise is a problem in your property in Carmarthen then it is time to consider installing soundproofing to make your home office, bedroom, studio or lounge a peaceful haven from the outside world. You may also be aware of noise from a family room or home cinema room escaping and disturbing others in the house. Whatever your needs, soundproofing will offer you sanity and peace of mind.
It is important to realise how sound travels around an area before it is possible to identify methods to stop it from occurring.
Sound basically moves in two ways throughout your home:
1. In open spaces by movement of air.
2. Within and around a solid object by reflection and vibration.
Sound can also travel through water, however unless you're thinking about soundproofing an aquarium or swimming pool we will only focus on its isolation via air and materials.
SOUND THROUGH THE AIR
Substantial levels of sound can be transferred out of and into a room through open ducting, gaps around doors, ill fitted windows and even light fittings and electrical sockets. Any sound vibrates the air molecules and this vibration is what we pick up and hear as sound. All sounds travel through the air in the same way; it does not matter if it's nearby traffic, heavy machinery, music playing, kids playing or aeroplanes that produces the sound.
If you try and visualise your room as if it were a bucket, you're trying to find any leaks that need sealing before you can fill it up with liquid.
SOUND TRAVEL THROUGH OBJECTS AND STRUCTURES
Sound waves can also be reflected by, transferred to or absorbed by solid objects and structures. The walls, ceilings and floors will all affect how sound travels around a room, and can even transmit those vibrations to other areas of a building. Care has to be taken with solid concrete or brick walls, such as in cellars or basements, because sound can be reflected and amplified to other parts of your property.
How can we prevent these sounds and vibrations affecting other people? Soundproofing is the remedy.
BASIC STEPS IN SOUNDPROOFING
Think about covering a bare floor surface, which reflects and resonates sound, with a carpet or rug. The rugs or other soft coverings will help absorb sounds but can also add a bit of elegance to a previously bare room. Curtains, particularly heavy blackout ones, can also subdue any sounds from invading or escaping a room, economically and without requiring professional soundproofing.
Another cost-effective and do-it-yourself remedy is to plug any holes around light fittings, electrical sockets, windows and door frames. Stopping up the gaps and holes with a specialist acoustic sealant that can be purchased in many DIY and building material shops, will make a big difference to how your room sounds. Acoustic sealants can be slightly more expensive than regular sealant products, however their impressive soundproofing qualities far outweigh the extra cost.
For anyone redecorating a room or renovating a property, consider the soundproofing properties of adding another layer of soundboard or plasterboard, (also known as sheet rock, drywall or gypsum board), while you're carrying out this project. Plasterboard is a fairly dense material that's both economical and efficient for soundproofing purposes. If you're fitting a games room, movie room or study then plasterboard will help in reducing sound pollution for that room, and can be readily decorated after installment. It is far better to hire a reliable contractor near you to install plasterboard unless you've experience in its application.
Last but not least you need to inspect all doors in the space you're looking to soundproof. Hollow doors are a relatively cheap option but their soundproofing capabilities are a far cry from perfect. Solid core doors, whilst a bit more pricey, can do wonders for sound isolation in a room.
PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING CARMARTHEN
If the sound pollution is excessive in your area, on account of heavy traffic on a busy road nearby, or aircraft flying over for instance, then more serious ways to combat the excess noise will have to be investigated. You'll receive the best soundproofing results by hiring the services of an established soundproofing specialist.
Expect to answer the following four questions during an initial assessment of your specific soundproofing needs:
- Is it external sounds or internal noise that you would like to address? i.e. To lessen neighbours, traffic or overflying aircraft, or is it from internally created sounds from a family room or music studio for instance.
- Where is the primary source of sound coming from? i.e. Overhead, through the walls, floor, ceiling, doors or windows, or a combination of all sorts of things.
- How big is the space that you want to have soundproofed?
- What type of property or room do you wish to soundproof? Is it a lined concrete wall, a stud partition wall or a brick wall etc.
With honest answers to these questions a trustworthy soundproofing installer in Carmarthen will figure out solutions to suit your situation, and just as important, your allotted budget. There'll be distinct remedies for each of the main key areas of the space you want to soundproof.
PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING OF FLOORS, CEILINGS and WALLS
There are two key areas that need to be addressed to successfully soundproof any room or space:
- Lower the effect of sound reflection, amplification and vibration by hard surfaces.
- Maximise sound absorption.
A site survey will be needed to pinpoint the elements to be improved.
A professional soundproofer will look at the different methods for adding mass and density to the areas with problems. The addition of acoustic foams and rubbers of varying density and mass will help in absorbing noise and reduce transmission and reflection sources.
Any voids in the area might require some form of muffling material to be placed between them to lessen noise resonation. Floor and ceiling voids and wall cavities can all be likened to a drum, where the space acts like an amplification source for any undesired noise.
Mixed layers of materials with different densities and masses do a better job of absorbing noise than a single material layer of one kind. This is because different frequencies are affected by different kinds of materials, therefore a variety of densities, shapes and layers within your soundproofing panels are required.
The Building Regulations (Part E) focus on the soundproofing of residential properties, and will need to be observed by any installation company in Carmarthen. Such regulations have to be observed so as to safeguard yourself and neighbours from being negatively impacted by sound pollution.
Trade associations in the soundproofing industry who offer advice, training and qualifications are the Institute of Acoustics (IOA) and the Association of Noise Consultants (ANC). Any Carmarthen company showing ANC or IOA accreditation will have been appraised to ensure they provide the highest reliability, standards and quality of workmanship within the soundproofing industry.
