Before we are able to find strategies for countering sound pollution, it would be a good idea to understand exactly how sound travels.

Soundproofing Chipping Norton Oxfordshire (OX7)

Basically, sound travels in two ways throughout your home:

1. By the vibration of air molecules.

2. Through the vibration of objects or materials.

Despite the fact that sound can also travel through liquids, unless you're wanting to isolate noise from a swimming pool or aquarium, we will just be concerned at how to reduce sound levels in the rooms of a property.

SOUND THROUGH THE AIR

Any ill fitting windows, gaps around doors, heating ducts and even electrical switches and sockets can all affect the transmission of sound into or outside a room. Any sound vibrates the molecules in the air and these vibrations are what we hear and identify as sound. All sounds are moved through the air in this same way; it matters not if it's music, road traffic, aeroplanes, machinery or children playing that produces the sound.

If you try and think of your room as a bucket, you're trying to identify any leaks which need sealing before you fill it with water.

SOUND THROUGH OBJECTS AND STRUCTURES

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

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

BASIC STEPS IN SOUNDPROOFING

Consider covering bare floors, which resonate and reflect sound, with a carpet or rug. Not only can such a simple solution help to reduce your problem with noise, it can also brighten up the room. Hanging curtains and wall coverings can also damp down sound vibrations and reflections through walls and windows without the need to bring in a professional team of soundproofers.

Search for areas in your rooms where sound can come in or escape from; light fittings, windows, sockets and door frames, and stop up the holes or gaps. There are some unique acoustic sealants available to buy which absorb the sound waves, and do not transmit them to the surrounding materials. Acoustic sealants can be a little more expensive than standard plaster or other sealant products, but their remarkable soundproofing qualities far outweigh the additional cost.

For anyone renovating a property or redecorating a room, consider the soundproofing gains of adding a supplementary skin of plasterboard or soundboard, (also called sheet rock, gypsum board or drywall), whilst you are carrying out the work. This is a fairly dense board that's a perfect and economic soundproofing material. If you're fitting a home office, movie room or games room then plasterboard can help in reducing sound pollution for that room, and can be readily decorated after installation. If you do choose plasterboard to aid your soundproofing exploits it is a good idea to hire a specialist fitter in Chipping Norton, to get the maximum possible effect from its installation.

The last DIY solution is to think about the doors in your property in Chipping Norton. If you have hollow doors in your rooms you will discover that they can vibrate and will resonate any sound that hits them. Switching hollow core doors for solid core will boost the soundproofing capabilities of an area with only a small extra cost.

  2. How big is the area that needs soundproofing?
  3. Is it external sounds or internal noise that you wish to tackle? i.e. To suppress traffic, neighbours or aircraft, or is it from internally produced sounds from a home cinema or teenagers bedroom for instance.
  4. What is the room you wish to soundproof made from? (i.e. a lined concrete wall, a brick wall or a stud partition wall).

PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING OF CEILINGS, FLOORS and WALLS

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

  1. Sound absorption will need to be maximised.
  2. Reduce the effect of sound reflection, amplification and vibration by hard surfaces.

This requires a site survey to find out which areas need enhancing from the present condition.

A specialist will investigate the different methods for adding mass and density to the problem areas. This additional mass will include ways to improve the absorption of noise by the use of acoustic rubber or foam to achieve the maximum sound reduction impacts.

Any voids in the area may require some type of deadening material to be installed between them to lessen noise resonation. Wall cavities or flooring and ceiling voids can all be assimilated with a drum, where the space acts as an amplifying area for any undesired sounds.

Mixed layers of materials with different densities and masses do a better job of absorbing sound than a solitary layer of one material type. The diverse materials will reduce different frequencies of sound and deliver a more sympathetic auditory experience and feeling to a room.

Part E of the Building Regulations focus on the soundproofing of residential properties, and must be adhered to by any soundproofing contractor in Chipping Norton. These legislation must be followed so as to safeguard yourself and neighbours from the harmful effects of noise pollution.

The Association of Noise Consultants and the Institute of Acoustics are trade associations who provide training, qualifications and represent the best in companies and contractors that offer soundproofing services. Only those Chipping Norton businesses that have been vetted and accredited by these organisations for professionalism, quality and reliability are allowed to display the logo.

Soundproofing Foam Chipping Norton

After doing some simple keyphrase research, it it would seem to be the case that one of the most commonly searched for terms on Google and other search engines is for "soundproofing foam" and for property owners in Chipping Norton, possibly "soundproofing foam Chipping Norton". Now, that is rather interesting as this would suggest that local homeowners are looking to soundproofing foam as a solution to their noise issues in Chipping Norton.

I'm not trying to rain on anyone's parade, but the fact is that acoustic foam is not likely to be the answer, and will definitely not reduce the racket caused by your noisy neighbours in Chipping Norton.

The customary "egg box" shaped foam, that often seems to be the trademark of soundproofing, isn't actually designed for blocking out noise, but is meant for the reduction of echoing and reverberation in music studios and comparable settings, where it can also improve the acoustic performance of a room. It's not effective for stopping noise from moving around your house, or preventing sound from penetrating the wall of a neighbouring property. Acoustic foam is porous and doesn't block noise, it absorbs it and lets sound pass through it.

This material may however be handy for you if you are creating a music studio in your house in Chipping Norton, and if this is the case you'll discover that it is available in various thicknesses and sheet sizes.

Acoustic Mineral Wool

Having various applications for your sound absorption needs, acoustic mineral wool is one of the most versatile materials on the market for soundproofing homes in Chipping Norton. When installed in the cavity spaces of walls, ceilings and floors, acoustic mineral wool is specifically made to enhance acoustic performance, absorb airborne sound and reduce reverberations.

Acoustic Mineral Wool Chipping Norton

Normally available in slabs of 600mm x 1200mm, AMW also comes in different thicknesses (25 millimetres, 50 millimetres, 75 millimetres and 100 millimetres). Made partly from recycled raw materials, AMW is non-combustible and is chemically inert. It doesn't react with any materials or substances that it comes into close contact with (i.e. masonry, plastics, metal wall ties, brickworketc), and doesn't encourage the development of fungi, bacteria or mould.

When employed as a sound absorbing filler between flooring joists, stud partitions and suspended ceilings, AMW is especially effective, and it's recognised in the building industry for its acoustic, fire and thermal insulation qualities. When used side by side with other soundproofing materials, acoustic mineral wool can help in compliance with Part E of the Building Regulations in relation to separating walls and floors.

Soundproofing Underlay Chipping Norton

An effective way of adding some soundproofing to your property in Chipping Norton, without any significant disruption, is to install soundproofing or acoustic underlay. This can be used on concrete or wooden floors and can be used underneath carpet, engineered wood, laminate, vinyl planks, and other flooring types.

When there are issues with impact rather than airborne noise, acoustic underlay is especially effective. Many households in Chipping Norton tend to have a huge problem with impact noise, and this is largely attributable to the popularity of hard floor finishes, which are more commonplace these days. Such things as children running around, shifting furniture and general foot traffic, are the kind of noise we're talking about here.

You shouldn't confuse acoustic or soundproofing underlay with normal carpet underlay, although some unscrupulous carpet stores may well try to sell you this with claims of soundproofing attributes. If you are encountering severe noise issues in your home in Chipping Norton, contact a respected supplier and purchase a decent acoustic underlay which is right for your particular needs.

Whilst the installation of acoustic underlay can be quite effective in reducing impact noise within the home, airborne noise such as incessant talking, loud music and booming TV's, can be a different thing altogether, with some products being superior to others and enjoying varying levels of success. So, before buying an underlay product it is important to pinpoint the specific kinds of noise you are looking to minimise, and discuss this with your supplier or soundproofing specialist.
