Before we can identify strategies for reducing sound pollution, we need to understand precisely how sound travels.

Soundproofing Dodworth South Yorkshire (S75)

Sound can travel in a couple of ways:

1. Around and within a solid object by vibration and reflection.

2. By the vibration of air molecules.

As dolphin and whale songs can show, sound also penetrates long distance through water, however unless you wish to soundproof an aquarium or swimming pool we'll look only at the strategies for soundproofing structures and rooms.


Sound can be transferred into and out of a room through gaps around doors, single glazed windows, open ducting and even light fittings and electrical sockets. All sounds and noise will create movement and vibration of the molecules in the air, and this is what we identify and hear. All sounds are transmitted through the air in the same way; it doesn't matter if it's machinery, music playing, kids playing, traffic or aircraft that creates the sound.

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


Sound waves can also be reflected by, transferred to or absorbed by solid materials and structures. The ceilings, floors and walls will all affect how sound moves around a room, and can even transfer that vibration to other rooms in a building. Even a room made from solid concrete, such as a basement, can produce a resonance path which transmits sound waves, and even amplify them, to other areas of a property.

However, how can these sound transmitting effects be prevented from creating an issue? The answer is naturally, soundproofing!


Give some thought to covering a bare floor surface, which reflects and resonates sound, with a carpet or rug. Not only will such a simple solution help reduce your noise problem, but it can also brighten up the room. Hanging curtains and wall coverings can also damp down sound reflections and vibrations through walls and windows without the need to hire a team of professional soundproofing installers.

Search for areas in your rooms where noise can escape or come in; door frames, windows, electrical sockets and light fittings, and seal up any gaps. Sealing the gaps and holes with an acoustic sealant found in some DIY stores and builders merchants, will make a huge difference to how your room sounds. Acoustic sealants are inclined to be a bit more pricey than regular sealant products, however their unique soundproofing qualities far outweigh the small extra cost.

If your room is an empty canvas and you're doing the soundproofing as you decorate or renovate, think about installing another layer of plasterboard or soundboard, (also known as sheet rock, gyproc or drywall). Plasterboard is a very dense material that is both effective and economical for soundproofing purposes. It's excellent for areas such as movie rooms, studios or studies being built within your home in Dodworth. It is better to hire a certified Dodworth tradesman to fit the plasterboard unless you've some experience in this type of work.

The insulation between any voids will be upgraded to lower the sound resonation and amplification of these "sound boxes". Floor and ceiling voids and wall cavities can all be assimilated with a drum, where the space inside acts as an amplifying area for undesirable sounds.

This is because the various different materials react better with different frequencies and will provide a better overall solution to your soundproofing exploits.
