Before we can find strategies for countering sound pollution, we should understand exactly how sound travels and is transmitted.

Soundproofing Chard Somerset (TA20)

Basically, sound moves in two ways around a room:

1. The vibration or air molecules through the air.

2. By vibration of solid materials and structures.

Although sound also travels through water, unless you are looking to eliminate sounds from an aquarium or swimming pool, we will just be interested in how to soundproof rooms within a building.


Any gaps around doors, ill fitted windows, heating ducts and even light fittings and electrical sockets can all be methods of transmission of sound outside or into a room. All noise and sound will initiate movement and vibration of the molecules in the air, and it is this that we hear and identify. No matter the source of the sound; music playing, machinery, children playing, aeroplanes or traffic, all sounds are produced and transmitted in exactly the same way.

Any gaps within the room can be regarded as a leak and will have to be blocked.


We know that sounds are just the vibration of air being processed by the ear, but that vibration is also reflected by or transferred to solid materials. Sound will vibrate the floors, ceilings and walls of your rooms, and may lead to a resonation effect that's transmitted outside of the area. Care should be taken with solid brick or concrete walls, such as in cellars, as sound can be transmitted and amplified to other parts of your property.

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


If you have bare floor surfaces or floorboards, consider putting down a few rugs or cover with a carpet to help reduce any vibrations and sound reflections. The rugs or other soft coverings will help to soak up noises but can also add a bit of elegance to an otherwise bare room. Wall coverings or window drapes can also be employed to enhance soundproofing and are simple to install and maintain.

Search for areas in your room where noise can come in or escape from; light fittings, sockets, doors and windows, and stop up the gaps or holes. Sealing the gaps and holes with a special acoustic sealant that can be purchased in some DIY shops and builders merchants, can make an enormous difference to how your room sounds. There may be a considerable difference in the price when compared with a regular sealant, however the soundproofing abilities are significantly better and can make a big difference to a room.

If you are luckily enough to be redecorating or renovating while dealing with your soundproofing, then look into installing an additional layer of plasterboard (also known as sheet rock, gypsum board or drywall). This is an economic and efficient soundproofing material because of its dense nature. If you are fitting a movie room, study or music studio then plasterboard can help to minimise sound transmission to and from that room, and can be decorated easily after installation. If you do decide to use plasterboard to help with your soundproofing it is a good idea to employ a specialist fitter in Chard, to get the maximum effect from its installation.

Lastly you ought to check all doors in the rooms that you're soundproofing. Although hollow doors are lightweight and relatively cheap, their soundproofing qualities are not all that brilliant. Solid wood doors, while a little more expensive, can have a sizeable effect on the soundproofing qualities of a room.


Some areas, for instance those on aircraft flight-paths or next to busy traffic routes, naturally have more sound problems and will need other ways to tackle the situation. The best solution for resolving these problems is to call in a professional soundproofing and acoustic firm from your local region.

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

  1. What sort of property or room do you wish to soundproof? Is it a plasterboarded partition wall, a brick wall or a lined concrete wall etc.
  2. What's the size of the room or area that has to be soundproofed?
  3. What noise or sounds are you seeking to reduce? i.e. External issues such as overflying aircraft, street noise, neighbours playing loud music etc, or sounds inside your home from a music room or home cinema.
  4. Precisely where is the main source of sound coming from? i.e. Above, through the doors, walls, ceiling, windows or flooring, or a combination of everything.

With answers to these queries a professional soundproofing company in Chard will provide you with solutions for your situation, and just as important, your spending budget. The parts of your room that are causing the biggest noise issues will each require different remedies.


2 key strategies are required to soundproof any sort of room:

  1. Reduce the effects on the way sound is reflected off and transmitted through solid surfaces.
  2. Improve the absorption of sound.

To precisely analyse the elements that need to be improved, a site survey should be conducted by a local soundproofing company.

Solutions from the survey will probably include the addition of materials with different masses and densities to help increase the soundproofing qualities of the room. Soundproofing will be enhanced by the application of acoustic foam and rubber which will absorb excess noise and improve and a room's sound quality.

Voids between floor joists might require insulating to eliminate resonation spaces between them. Wall cavities or flooring and ceiling voids can all be likened to a drum, where the space inside acts as an amplifying area for unwanted sounds.

Soundproofing is enhanced if different densities and materials are utilised, as opposed to installing a single kind of material. This is due to the fact that the various frequencies are absorbed differently by different types of materials, therefore a variety of layers, densities and shapes within your soundproofing armoury are needed.

The Building Regulations (Part E) focus on the soundproofing of residential properties, and will have to be adhered to by any soundproofing company in Chard. This set of regulations is a legally binding requirement to protect your neighbours and yourself from being affected by sound pollution in an environment where folks live and work.

Watch out for contractors displaying the logos of the Institute of Acoustics or the Association of Noise Consultants to guarantee that you are dealing with a business that's fully qualified and knowledgeable in the soundproofing industry. Any Chard firm displaying IOA or ANC accreditation has been vetted to make sure they offer the highest standards, quality and reliability of workmanship within the soundproofing industry.

Soundproofing Foam Chard

It seems from carrying out some basic keyword research that a frequent search on Google and Yahoo is for "soundproofing foam" and for people in Chard, perhaps "soundproofing foam Chard". That is really quite concerning, because it indicates that Chard home and business owners are assuming that acoustic foam products are suitable for reducing their noise pollution problems.

The last thing I wish to do is rain on your parade, but if you are convinced that the din from your noisy next door neighbours in Chard can be eliminated with soundproofing foam, you are on the wrong track.

Often sold in sheet or tile form, this "egg box" style foam that you sometimes see on sale is not actually designed for blocking out noise, but is really meant for use in music studios and comparable settings, to enhance the sound clarity in a room, and help reduce reverberation and echoing. This type of soundproofing foam is not efficient at stopping sound from passing through a neighbours wall or preventing noise from travelling around the rooms of your house. Given that it is porous, soundproofing foam absorbs sound and lets sound pass through, as opposed to stopping it.

This foam product may however be useful for you if you are building a music room in your property in Chard, and if this is the case you will discover that it is available in different thicknesses and sheet sizes.
