Before we can discover methods for reducing sound pollution, it might help if we understand how sound travels.

Soundproofing Godstone Surrey (RH9)

Sound can move in two different ways:

1. The vibration or air molecules through the air.

2. Through the vibration of objects or materials.

As dolphin and whale songs can show, sound also penetrates long distance through water, however unless your intention is to soundproof a pool or aquarium we'll look only at the methods of soundproofing rooms and buildings.

SOUND TRAVELLING THROUGH THE AIR

Any gaps around doors, ill fitted windows, heating ducts and even electrical sockets and light fittings can all be methods of transmission of sound into or outside a room. What we hear and identify as sound is actually the vibration of air molecules reaching our ear drums. No matter the source of the noise; heavy machinery, aircraft, busy traffic, music playing or kids playing, all sound is created and transferred in exactly the same manner.

It is helpful to imagine a room as a boat and inspect it carefully for leaks that need sealing before you can sail it.

SOUND TRAVEL THROUGH STRUCTURES AND OBJECTS

We all know that sound is just the vibrations of air being processed by the ear, however those vibrations are also reflected by or transferred to solid materials. Sound will cause vibrations in the floors, walls and ceilings of your rooms, and may lead to a resonating effect that's transmitted outside of the area. Even in a room that's encased in a solid material which is somewhat resistant to sound, such as a concrete lined basement, the sound can be reflected and even amplified to other areas of the building.

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

BASIC SOUNDPROOFING STEPS

Think about covering bare floors, which reflect and resonate sound, with a carpet or rug. Such a simple solution can spruce up a room and help dampen down any noises at the same time. Hanging curtains and wall coverings can also damp down sound reflections and vibrations through walls and windows without the need for a team of professional soundproofing specialists.

Another economical and do-it-yourself solution is to plug any gaps around windows, light fittings, electrical sockets and doors. You can find professional acoustic sealants in many building supply stores which moderate the transfer of sound by suppressing it. They may be a bit more pricey than normal plaster or sealants, but they are worth it for their soundproofing qualities.

If your room is an empty canvas and you are doing the soundproofing while you renovate or decorate, think about installing another skin of soundboard or plasterboard, (also known as gypsum board, drywall or sheet rock). This is an economic and efficient soundproofing material because of its dense nature. If you're fitting a games room, home office or cinema room then plasterboard will help in reducing sound pollution for that room, and can be readily decorated after installation. It is wise to hire a specialist contractor near you to install plasterboard unless you're experienced in this task.

The final DIY solution is to consider the doors in your home in Godstone. Whilst hollow doors are lightweight and relatively affordable, their soundproofing attributes are not anything to write home about. Solid core doors, whilst a little more expensive, can have a considerable effect on the soundproofing capabilities of a room.

  3. Where is the majority of the noise coming from? The windows, walls, flooring, ceiling or doors.
  4. How large is the room requiring soundproofing?

Your answers to such queries will allow you to receive estimates for the various available solutions to suit your requirements. They'll offer you different methods for soundproofing each of the troublesome areas within your home.

PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING OF CEILINGS, FLOORS and WALLS

2 key approaches are needed to soundproof any type of room or space:

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

This requires an on-site survey to determine which areas need improving from the present state.

The installer will figure out ways to add materials that have different densities and masses to boost the sound absorption of the area. The addition of acoustic rubbers and foams of different density and mass will help to absorb noise and reduce transmission and reflection sources.

Any noticeable voids in the room might need some kind of muffling material to be placed between them to lessen sound resonation. Floor and ceiling voids and wall cavities can all be likened to a drum, where the space inside acts as an amplifying area for undesirable sounds.

Soundproofing capabilities are improved if different densities and materials are utilised, rather than installing a single form of material. The diverse materials will eliminate different frequencies of sound and provide a more harmonious feeling and auditory experience to a room.

The Building Regulations (Part E) cover the soundproofing of domestic properties, and must be applied by any soundproofing contractor in Godstone. This regulation has the objective of protecting neighbours and other residents in the area from the impact and effect of noise pollution.

Trade associations in the soundproofing industry that offer advice, training and qualifications are the Institute of Acoustics (IOA) and the Association of Noise Consultants (ANC). Only those Godstone firms that have been appraised and authorised by these organisations for professionalism, reliability and quality are permitted to display the logo.
