Before we can discover methods for eliminating sound pollution, it will help if we understand exactly how sound travels and is transmitted.

Soundproofing Dulverton Somerset (TA22)

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

1. In open spaces by movement of air.

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

Sound also travels through water, but unless you are planning to soundproof an aquarium or pool we will simply consider its isolation through materials and air.

SOUND TRAVEL THROUGH THE AIR

Sounds can be transmitted out of and into a room through gaps around doors, ill fitting windows, heating ducts and even electrical sockets and switches. Any noise vibrates the molecules in the air and this vibration is what we identify and hear as sound. It doesn't matter whether it's music, machinery, road traffic, aircraft or kids playing, they all create and transmit sound in the same way.

Any openings in a room can be regarded as a leak and will need to be closed off.

SOUND TRAVELLING THROUGH OBJECTS AND STRUCTURES

Sound waves can also be transferred to, absorbed by or reflected by solid objects and structures. Sound will cause vibrations in the floors, walls and ceilings of your rooms, and can result in a resonating effect which is transmitted outside the room itself. Even a room made of solid concrete, such as a cellar, can create a resonance path which channels sound waves, and sometimes amplify them, to other areas of a building.

So, what is the best way to stop this sound transference affecting other people? Soundproofing of course.

BASIC STEPS IN SOUNDPROOFING

A bare floor is more resonant than one covered by a rug or carpet. The rugs or other soft coverings will help to soak up sounds and can also add a bit of style to a previously bare room. Hanging wall coverings and curtains can also damp down sound reflections and vibrations through walls and windows without the need for a team of professional soundproofing specialists.

Finding and sealing any gaps in the rooms, think light fittings, door frames, electrical sockets and windows, is also an easy task for a competent DIY enthusiast. You can find professional acoustic sealants in some builders merchants that deaden the transfer of sound by absorbing it. They might be a tad more pricey than standard plaster or sealants, but they're worthwhile for their soundproofing efficiency.

For anyone redecorating a room or renovating a property, consider the soundproofing gains of adding a supplementary skin of soundboard or plasterboard, (also called gyproc, sheet rock or drywall), whilst you're tackling this project. This is an efficient and economical soundproofing material owing to its dense nature. If you are fitting a home cinema, studio or home office then plasterboard will help reduce sound transference from and to that room, and can be decorated easily after installation. It is advisable to hire a competent contractor near you to install plasterboard unless you've got some experience in this type of work.

One final simple soundproofing treatment is to examine the materials your doors are made of. If you've got hollow doors fitted to rooms you will discover that they can resonate and vibrate with any sound that hits them. Solid wood doors, while a little more expensive, can have a significant effect on the soundproofing capabilities of a room.

  3. Is it internal noise or external sounds that you wish to target? i.e. To lessen road noise, neighbours playing loud music or passing trains, or is it from internally produced sounds from a teenagers bedroom or family room for example.

Voids between joists may need insulation to eliminate resonation spaces between them. Floor and ceiling voids and wall cavities can all be likened to a drum, where the space acts as an amplifying area for any unwelcome sounds.

It is better to use combined layers of different densities to absorb undesirable sounds than a single layer made of one kind of soundproofing material. The various materials will isolate different sound frequencies and offer a more sympathetic auditory experience and feeling to a room.

Soundproofing Foam Dulverton

Just recently I thought I'd look into what home and business owners in Dulverton are searching for online in relation to soundproofing, and evidently when searching on Google and Yahoo one of the most commonly types in requests was "soundproofing foam". And from a local point of view queries include "soundproofing foam Dulverton". Now, that is rather worrying as this would indicate that local homeowners are turning to soundproofing foam products as an answer to their noise issues in Dulverton.

I'm not trying to rain on anyone's parade, but the fact is that soundproofing foam is not going to be the answer to your prayers, and will definitely not block out the racket caused by your noisy neighbours in Dulverton.

Often sold in sheet or tile form, this "egg box" style foam that you frequently see on sale is not actually designed for blocking out noise, but is really meant for use in music studios and comparable environments, to enhance the sound clarity in a room, and help reduce echoing and amplifying. Soundproofing foam like this is not effective for stopping sound from moving around your house, or stopping noise from penetrating a wall. As acoustic foam is spongy and porous, it actually permits sound to pass through it, and hasn't got the density to stop it.

This foam product may however be useful for you if you are building a music room in your home in Dulverton, and if this is the case you will find that it can be bought in different sheet sizes and thicknesses.
