Before we are able to find strategies for combating sound pollution, it will help if we understand precisely how sound travels.

Soundproofing Cheshunt Hertfordshire (EN7)

There basically a couple of ways in which sound can move around a room:

1. The vibration or air molecules through the air.

2. Through the vibration of objects or materials.

Despite the fact that sound also travels through water, unless you're wanting to eliminate noise from an aquarium or pool, we will just be concerned at how to reduce sound levels in the rooms of a property.

SOUND TRAVELLING THROUGH THE AIR

Sounds can be transferred out of and into a room through ill fitting windows, gaps around doors, heating ducts and even electrical sockets and switches. What we hear and identify as sound is in fact air molucules being vibrated and being picked up by our ear drum. Regardless of the source of the noise; nearby traffic, kids playing, heavy machinery, aeroplanes or music, all sounds are created and transmitted in exactly the same fashion.

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

SOUND TRAVEL THROUGH STRUCTURES AND OBJECTS

Sound waves can also be transferred to, reflected by or absorbed by solid objects and structures. Sound can be transmitted around a dwelling from its source through the vibration of walls, floors and ceilings. Care should be taken with brick or solid concrete walls, such as a cellar or basement, since sound can be reflected and sometimes even amplified to other rooms in your home.

How can we prevent these vibrations and sounds affecting other people? Soundproofing is the solution.

BASIC SOUNDPROOFING STEPS

Give some thought to covering bare floors, which resonate and reflect sound, with a rug or carpet. Not only will such a simple and straightforward solution help to reduce your noise problem, it can also perk up the room. Window drapes and wall coverings can also be employed to boost soundproofing and are easy to install.

Look for areas around the rooms where noise can come in or escape from; windows, door frames, light fittings and electrical sockets, and close off the gaps or holes. There are some special acoustic sealants available on the market that absorb the sound waves, and do not transfer them to the surrounding materials. There might be a considerable difference in the price when compared with a standard sealant, however the soundproofing abilities are a lot better and will make a massive difference to a room's level of soundproofing.

For anybody renovating a property or redecorating a room, look at the soundproofing gains of adding another layer of soundboard or plasterboard, (also called sheet rock, drywall or gyproc), while you're undertaking the work. Plasterboard is a dense material which is both economical and efficient in soundproofing a room. It's ideal for areas like studios, home offices or movie rooms being built within your home in Cheshunt. If you are not familiar with fitting plasterboard and studding, it is generally best to use a professional team to guarantee the optimal soundproofing improvements from its installation.

Soundproofer Quotes in Cheshunt Hertfordshire

Last but not least you ought to check out all doors in the room that you're soundproofing. Whilst hollow doors are light and relatively cheap, their soundproofing capabilities aren't that brilliant. Exchanging hollow doors for solid ones will noticeably improve the soundproofing attributes of an area with only a little more cost.

PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING OF CEILINGS, FLOORS and WALLS

There are 2 areas that need to be addressed to successfully soundproof any space:

  1. Update and increase the level of sound absorption.
  2. Reduce sound reverberation and amplifying.

Doing this requires a site survey to find out which areas require enhancing from the current state.

The specialists will work out ways to add materials that have different masses and densities to enhance the sound absorption properties of the room. This additional mass will help to increase absorption of the sound energy by the use of acoustic rubber or foam to gain the maximum impact of noise reduction.

Voids between floor joists may need insulating to remove the resonating gap between them. If you think of a drum for instance, you're looking at a sound increasing void enclosed within a resonating material; fundamentally what you may find within ceiling and floor joists, or cavities in walls.

Soundproofing is improved if different densities and materials are used, as opposed to installing a single kind of material. This is due to the fact that different materials react in different ways with various frequencies and will provide a much better acoustic solution to your soundproofing.

All soundproofing installers in Cheshunt must follow the regulations for domestic buildings as laid out in the Building Regulations (Part E). Part E of the Building Regulations is a legally binding requirement to protect your neighbours and yourself from the effects of noise pollution in a setting where folks live and work.

Soundproofing Foam Cheshunt

I was intrigued to learn quite recently that one of the most popular soundproofing search phrases typed into Google and Bing was "soundproofing foam", and for local searches "soundproofing foam Cheshunt" and "acoustic foam Cheshunt". This is somewhat baffling, as it indicates a lack of awareness by local property owners who seem to be of the belief that their noise pollution problems can be sorted out with acoustic foam products.

It isn't my intention to ruin anyone's day, but most soundproofing issues cannot be helped by this kind of product, and if your objective is to block out the racket caused by noisy next door neighbours in Cheshunt, you will have to look someplace else.

Blocking out noise isn't the purpose of this familiar "egg box" style foam, which was in fact created for use in music studios and similar settings, where it can enhance the sound clarity in a room, and reduce amplifying, echoing and resonation. Soundproofing foam like this is not effective for preventing noise from moving freely around your house, or stopping sound from passing through a wall. Acoustic foam is in fact porous and does not have the consistency to block noise, it absorbs it and actually lets sound pass through it.

It may be that you're actually creating a music room in your property in Cheshunt, in which instance this foam may be extremely useful for you.
