It's crucial to realise how sound travels and is transmitted around an area before it is possible to identify methods to prevent it from happening.

Soundproofing Haydock Merseyside (WA11)

Basically, sound moves in two ways around a home:

1. Through the vibration of objects or materials.

2. The vibration or air molecules through the air.

As dolphin and whale songs can show, sound also travels long distances through water, but unless your aim is to soundproof an aquarium or pool we will just look at the strategies for soundproofing buildings and rooms.

SOUND THROUGH THE AIR

If you check around the space to be soundproofed and detect gaps around doors, heating ducts, ill fitted windows and even light fittings and electrical sockets, these are all factors that can transfer sound. What we identify and hear as sound is basically air molucules being vibrated and reaching our ear drums. All sounds are transmitted through the air in the same way; it matters not if it's machinery, music playing, aircraft, children playing or road traffic that generates the sound.

It is helpful to imagine your room as a boat and carefully inspect it for leaks before sailing off into the sunset.

SOUND TRAVELLING THROUGH OBJECTS AND STRUCTURES

Sound waves can also be transferred to, absorbed by or reflected by solid materials and structures. The floors, walls and ceilings will all have an effect on how sound moves around a room, and may even transport those vibrations to other areas of a dwelling. Even if a room is encased in a dense material which is resistant to sound, such as a concrete lined cellar, the sound can be reflected and even amplified to other parts of the property.

How do we stop these sounds from affecting others? Soundproofing obviously.

SIMPLE STEPS IN SOUNDPROOFING

If you have bare floorboards or floor surfaces, think about covering them with carpet or laying a few rugs to help in reducing any sound reflections and vibrations. Such a simple and straightforward solution can help to damp down any noise and spruce up the room at the same time. Curtains, particularly heavy blackout styles, can also suppress any noises from invading or escaping a room, cost-effectively and without the need for professional installation.

Locating and stopping up any holes or gaps around the room, think light fittings, windows, doors and electrical sockets, is also an easy job for a capable DIY'er. It is possible to buy specialist acoustic sealants in some DIY merchants which subdue the transfer of sound by absorbing it. Acoustic sealants are inclined to be a little more pricey than normal plaster or other sealant products, but the special design has far greater soundproofing performance and is definitely worth the extra cost.

For anybody renovating a property or redecorating a room, evaluate the soundproofing properties of adding a supplementary layer of plasterboard or soundboard, (also called gypsum board, sheet rock or drywall), whilst you are carrying out the work. This is an economic and efficient soundproofing material due to its dense nature. If you're fitting a movie room, study or studio then plasterboard can help reduce sound pollution for that room, and can be easily decorated after completion. If you're not proficient in putting up plasterboard and framing, it is generally advisable to employ a professional team to guarantee you the optimal soundproofing benefits from its use.

Lastly you should examine all doors in the rooms that you're soundproofing. If you have hollow doors in your rooms you will find they can vibrate with any sound that is aimed at them. Solid doors, while a bit more expensive, can have a substantial effect on the soundproofing capabilities of a room.

Be prepared to answer the following four questions during a review of your specific soundproofing requirements:

  1. Which is the main point where the sound causes the biggest problems? i.e. Is it coming up through the flooring, through doors, from the walls or down from overhead, or is it a combination of all these things.
  2. What sounds or noise are you trying to suppress? i.e. External things such as next door neighbours, aircraft, road noise etc, or sounds inside your home from a home cinema or teenagers bedroom.
  3. How big is the room you need to be soundproofed?
  4. What room needs to be soundproofed? i.e. Is it an attic conversion, a stud partitioned room, a concrete lined basement or a brick walled room.

Your answers to these questions will enable you to receive estimates for the different solutions available that match your situation. They'll provide different methods to soundproof each of the main trouble spots within your home.

PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING OF FLOORS, WALLS and CEILINGS

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

  1. Cut down on the ways that sound is reflected off and transmitted through hard surfaces.
  2. Update and enhance the amount of sound absorption.

This requires an on-site survey to find out which areas require developing from the present state.

Solutions from the survey will include the addition of materials with different densities to help increase the soundproofing properties of the area. This additional mass will help to increase absorption of the sound energy by the use of acoustic foam or rubber to achieve the maximum impact of sound reduction.

Voids between floor joists may require insulating to eliminate resonation gaps between them. Wall cavities or flooring and ceiling voids can all be assimilated with a drum, where the space acts like an amplification source for undesirable sounds.

It is far better to use combined layers of different density materials to deaden unwanted sounds than a single layer made from one type of material. The various materials will eliminate different frequencies of sound and offer a more sympathetic feeling and auditory experience to a room.

Part E of the Building Regulations deal with the soundproofing of residential properties, and must be followed by any soundproofing specialist in Haydock. These legislation should be adopted in order to protect yourself and neighbours from being negatively impacted by sound pollution.

Only those Haydock businesses that have been appraised and approved by these trade associations for reliability, quality and professionalism are allowed to display the logo.

Soundproofing Foam Haydock

After undertaking some simple keyphrase research, it it would seem to be the case that one of the most common searches on Google and Bing is for "soundproofing foam" and for homeowners in Haydock, something like "soundproofing foam Haydock". That is actually quite worrying, because it illustrates that Haydock homeowners are under the impression that acoustic foam is a suitable product for fixing their noise pollution issues.

I'm not trying to be a bearer of bad tidings, but the simple truth is that soundproofing foam isn't likely to be the answer you're searching for, and will certainly not reduce the racket caused by your noisy neighbours in Haydock.

Blocking out noise isn't the function of this familiar "egg box" shaped foam, which was in fact developed for use in music studios and similar environments, where it can enhance the sound clarity in a room, and reduce amplifying, reverberation and echoing. Acoustic foam of this sort isn't effective for stopping sound from travelling around your house, or preventing noise from penetrating a neighbours wall. Rather than stopping it, acoustic foam actually allows sound to pass through it, because it is in fact porous.

If however, you are changing some free space into a music studio, this might be a useful product for you, and can be bought in various thicknesses (generally 25mm and 50mm), and in different tile and sheet sizes.

Soundproofing Curtains

Acoustic curtains, noise-reducing curtains, and soundproof curtains are all effective solutions for reducing unwanted external noise and creating a more peaceful and quieter environment indoors. A useful option for enhancing living or working spaces in Haydock, these specialised curtains are designed to dampen, block and absorb sound waves.

Dense materials that can reflect and absorb sound waves are used to construct soundproof curtains. The typical layers of soundproof curtains are heavy fabrics, such as velvet, suede, or multiple layers of woven fabric, along with an inner core made from foam or mass-loaded vinyl. The level of sound that enters a room is effectively reduced by these materials working together to minimise the transmission of noise from outside sources.

Simplicity of installation is a key advantage of soundproof curtains. These curtains offer a simple and convenient solution to soundproofing, unlike traditional soundproofing solutions, which are complicated and require professional installation. Both homeowners and tenants in Haydock can reduce noise without making permanent changes to their living areas by using these cost-effective and convenient curtains.

Soundproof curtains offer both functional and visual benefits. For interior decor that complements their style, householders can choose from a variety of colours, patterns and designs. These curtains effectively soundproof the room, while at the same time having a hand in its overall visual appeal.

The particular noise problems you're experiencing should be considered when selecting soundproof curtains. The effectiveness of different curtains at reducing noise varies, and is traditionally measured in decibels (dB). Additionally, some soundproof curtains may be more effective at reducing external noise, while others may be better at absorbing echoes and reverberations within a room. This makes them ideal for use in recording studios, home theatres or office spaces. (75635 - Soundproof Curtains Haydock)
