Before we can discover methods for eliminating sound pollution, we should understand how sound travels.

Soundproofing Fleetwood Lancashire (FY7)

Sound can move in a couple of ways:

1. The vibration or air molecules through the air.

2. Through the vibration of objects or materials.

Although sound can also travel through water, unless you're eager to reduce sounds from an aquarium or swimming pool, we will just be interested in how to reduce sound transmission in the rooms of a structure.

SOUND TRAVELLING THROUGH THE AIR

Any gaps around doors, heating ducts, ill fitting windows and even electrical sockets and switches can all affect the transmission of sound outside or into a room. What we hear as sound is in fact air molucules being vibrated and reaching our ear drum. It matters not whether it's children playing, road traffic, aircraft, music or machinery, they all produce and transmit sound in the same way.

If you can think of your room as a bucket, and you are attempting to find any leaks to seal before you fill it up with water.

SOUND TRAVEL THROUGH OBJECTS AND STRUCTURES

We now know that sound is just the vibration of air being picked up by the ear, but that vibration is also transferred to solid materials. The walls, ceilings and floors will all affect how sound travels around a room, and may even transport that vibration to other rooms in a building. Even a solid concrete room, such as a basement, can produce a resonance path which channels sound waves, and sometimes amplify them, to other areas of a structure.

But, how can these effects be stopped from creating an issue? The solution is naturally, soundproofing!

SIMPLE SOUNDPROOFING STEPS

Give some thought to covering bare floors, which resonate and reflect sound, with a rug or carpet. Not only can such a simple solution help reduce your noise problem, it can also jazz up the room. Curtains, and particularly substantial blackout ones, will also subdue any noises from invading or escaping a room, cost-effectively and without the need for professional installation.

Another economical and do-it-yourself solution is to plug any gaps around light fittings, door frames, sockets and windows. There are special acoustic sealants available to buy that absorb the sound waves, and do not transmit them to the surrounding materials. They might be a tad more expensive than normal sealants or plaster, but they are worthwhile for their soundproofing qualities.

If you are going to be redecorating or renovating while dealing with your soundproofing requirements, then look into installing an additional skin of plasterboard (also called gypsum board, drywall or sheet rock). This is a relatively dense type of board which is an economic and useful soundproofing material. If you're fitting a home office, music studio or home cinema then plasterboard can help in reducing sound pollution for that room, and can be decorated easily after installation. If you're not experienced in fitting studding and plasterboard, it is advisable to use a professional Fleetwood contractor to guarantee you the optimum soundproofing improvements from its use.

The final solution for do-it-yourself enthusiasts is to think about the doors in your home in Fleetwood. Hollow doors are a relatively cheap option although their soundproofing qualities are a far cry from the best. Changing hollow core doors for solid core will considerably improve the soundproofing characteristics of a room with only a little more cost.

Some homes, such as those next to busy roads or on aircraft flight paths, naturally have more sound issues and will need other ways to deal with the situation. This is where the services of an established soundproofing contractor will deliver the greatest results.

The first questions you can expect to be asked are:

  1. What are the particular sounds that you need to be soundproofed? i.e. Is it sounds from inside your property such as a family room or music room, or outside noises such as aircraft, neighbours playing loud music, road noise, etc.
  2. What kind of room or property do you want to soundproof? Does it have a fully lined concrete wall, a brick wall or a stud partition wall etc.
  3. How large is the room requiring soundproofing?
  4. Where is most of the noise pollution coming from? The floors, doors, walls, windows or ceiling.

Your answers to such queries will allow you to get estimates for the different solutions available that match your needs. Solutions might vary according to the different materials needed for each of the trouble spots in your home.

PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING OF FLOORS, CEILINGS and WALLS

To soundproof any type of room requires two key components:

  1. Minimise sound amplifying and reverberation.
  2. Update and increase the amount of sound absorption.

A site survey is going to be required to pinpoint the elements that need to be improved.

Solutions identified by the survey will include the addition of materials with different densities and masses to help improve the soundproofing properties of the room. This extra mass will include ways to enhance absorption of the sound energy by means of acoustic foam or rubber to achieve the maximum impact of sound reduction.

The insulation between any voids will be improved or upgraded to reduce the noise amplification and resonation of these sound boxes. Floor and ceiling voids and cavities in walls can all be likened to a drum, where the space acts like an amplification source for unwelcome noise.

Mixed layers of materials with different densities and masses do a better job of absorbing noise than a single soundproofing material layer of one type. This is due to the fact that the different material densities react in different ways with various frequencies and will provide a much better acoustic solution to your soundproofing exploits.

All soundproofing specialists in Fleetwood will be needing to follow the legislation for residential buildings laid out in the Building Regulations (Part E). These regulations have the objective of protecting other residents in the immediate area from the effects of sound pollution.

Trade organisations in the soundproofing sector who provide qualifications, guidance and training are the Association of Noise Consultants (ANC) and the Institute of Acoustics (IOA). Any Fleetwood firm displaying IOA or ANC accreditation has been vetted to make sure they provide the highest reliability, quality and standards of work within the soundproofing industry.

Acoustic Mineral Wool (AMW)

For you sound absorption needs in Fleetwood, acoustic mineral wool is one of the handiest products for soundproofing houses or other buildings, and has a number of different applications. Designed specifically for installation in the cavity spaces of floors, ceilings and walls, acoustic mineral wool is effective in dampening vibrations, improving acoustic performance and absorbing sound waves.

Acoustic Mineral Wool Fleetwood

AMW typically comes in 1200mm x 600mm slabs and is available in 25 millimetre, 50 millimetre, 75 millimetre and 100 millimetre thicknesses. Made partly from recycled raw materials, acoustic mineral wool is non-combustible and is chemically inert. It does not have a reaction with any materials or substances that it comes into contact with (i.e. brickwork, masonry, metal wall ties, plastics), and does not encourage the development of fungi, bacteria or mould.

Recognised in the construction industry for its thermal, acoustic and fire insulation properties, acoustic mineral wool is especially effective as a sound absorbing filler when installed in the gaps between suspended ceilings, flooring joists and stud partitions. When it comes to separating walls and floors, and so as to observe The Building Regulations (Part E), AMW can be used in partnership with other soundproofing products.

Soundproofing Foam Fleetwood

It would seem from doing some simple keyphrase research that one of the most popular searches on Google and Bing is for "soundproofing foam" and for homeowners in Fleetwood, perhaps "soundproofing foam Fleetwood". Now, that is rather concerning because this would suggest that local homeowners are looking to soundproofing foam products as a way to fix their noise issues in Fleetwood.

The last thing I want to do is be the bearer of bad tidings, but if you're thinking that the racket from your noisy neighbours in Fleetwood can be blocked out with this type of product, then you're barking up the wrong tree.

The familiar "egg box" style foam, that seems to be the hallmark of soundproofing, isn't actually designed for stopping the transmission of noise, but is meant for the reduction of reverberation and echoing in music studios and similar settings, where it can also improve the acoustic performance of a room. It's not the right product stopping noise from moving around your house, or preventing sound from penetrating the wall of a neighbouring property. Rather than stopping it, acoustic foam allows sound to pass through it, because it is actually porous.

If however, you're creating a music studio, this may be a useful product for you, and can be purchased in different thicknesses (usually 25mm and 50mm), and in various tile and sheet sizes.

Acoustic Underlay Fleetwood

A very good way of adding some soundproofing to your property in Fleetwood, without any serious disruption, is to add soundproofing underlay. This can be used on wooden or concrete floors and can be used beneath vinyl planks, carpet, laminate, engineered wood, and various other types of flooring.

When your problem is not so much airborne noise but predominantly impact noise, soundproofing underlay is a particularly beneficial remedy. Impact noise has become a commonplace issue in Fleetwood homes nowadays, with a rise in the popularity of hard floor finishes. Upstairs rooms are the main source of such issues, with kids running around, moving furniture and general footfall being frequent concerns.

Although some carpet stockists might try to sell you ordinary carpet underlay with claims that it has good soundproofing attributes, this should not be mistaken for genuine acoustic or soundproofing underlay. If the noise issues you are experiencing are significant, make sure you buy a decent acoustic underlay from a respected dealer.

Although it's a valuable product with regard to impact noise, soundproofing underlay has differing levels of success when it comes to reducing airborne noise problems like booming televisions, loud music and incessant talking, and some products are certainly far better than others. So, when picking an underlay product it is vital to determine the exact kinds of noise you are wanting to reduce, and chat about this with the supplier or soundproofing specialist beforehand.

Government Grants for Soundproofing

Soundproofing Grants Fleetwood

Skip Hire Fleetwood

It is very rare that you'll do a property makeover or home restoration project without producing quite a lot of waste that will need to be removed and disposed of. Even though soundproofing is not one of those jobs that normally generates a lot of waste, that is not always the case, and the amount will depend on the scale of your installation. You might need to arrange your own waste removal, because a lot of soundproofing contractors don't include this in the quote.

Skip Hire Fleetwood

If this task is being left for you to do, you could look at hiring a skip. Coming in a range of different sizes, skips can be hired to suit the quantity of waste that you are likely to generate. The volumes of the popular skips are skip bags 1-1.5 yd³, mini-skips 2-3 yd³, midi-skips 4-5 yd³, and builders skips 6-8 yd³.
