Firstly it would be advantageous to learn just how is transmitted and travels before we are able to identify ways to reduce any excessive noise intruding into or escaping from your home.

Soundproofing Hemel Hempstead Hertfordshire (HP1)

There are only a couple of ways by which sound can be transmitted around a room:

1. By vibration of solid materials and objects.

2. By the vibration of air molecules.

As dolphin and whale song shows, sound also travels through water, but unless your aim is to soundproof an aquarium or pool we'll just look at the strategies for soundproofing structures and rooms.

SOUND THROUGH THE AIR

Sounds can be transferred into and out of a room through gaps around doors, ill fitted windows, open air-ducting and even electrical switches and sockets. All sounds and noise will initiate movement and vibration of the air molecules, and it is this that we identify and hear. No matter what the source of the noise; busy traffic, kids playing, aeroplanes, heavy machinery or music playing, all sounds are produced and transferred in precisely the same fashion.

Any holes in a room can be looked at as a leak and will have to be plugged.

SOUND THROUGH OBJECTS AND STRUCTURES

As sound travels through the air by vibration, then it seems logical that this vibration can be transferred to, absorbed by or reflected by various materials. The ceilings, walls and floors will all affect how sound travels around a room, and may even transmit that vibration to other parts of a dwelling. Even in a room that's encased in a dense material that is resistant to sound, such as a concrete basement, the sound can be reflected and even amplified to other areas of the dwelling.

But, how can these sound generating effects be stopped from creating an issue? The answer is obviously, soundproofing!

SIMPLE STEPS IN SOUNDPROOFING

Consider covering bare floors, which reflect and resonate sound, with a carpet or rug. Such a simple and straightforward solution can help to damp down any noises and enhance the room at the same time. Curtains, and especially substantial blackout styles, will also repress any sounds from invading or escaping a room, economically and without requiring professional installation.

Locating and sealing any gaps or holes around the rooms, think light fittings, sockets, windows and door frames, is also a straightforward job for a skilled DIY'er. It is possible to purchase professional acoustic sealants in many DIY merchants that repress the transfer of sound by absorbing the sound waves. Acoustic sealants can be slightly more expensive than standard sealant products, however the special design has far greater soundproofing performance and is worth the small extra cost.

For anyone renovating a property or redecorating a room, look at the soundproofing benefits of adding an extra layer of plasterboard or soundboard, (also known as sheet rock, drywall or gyproc), while you're tackling this work. This is a relatively dense type of boarding which is a perfect and economic soundproofing material. It's superb if you're setting up a study, home cinema or games room in your home in Hemel Hempstead. It's best to hire a reliable Hemel Hempstead tradesman to fit the plasterboard unless you're experienced in this task.

To soundproof any sort of room requires 2 key approaches:

  1. Minimise sound the resonating and amplification of sound.

Insulation between any existing voids will be improved to lower the sound amplification and resonation of these sound boxes. If you think of a drum or wooden cajon, you are looking at a noise amplifying void surrounded by a resonating material; basically what you might find within floor and ceiling joists, or wall cavities.

It is better to use combined layers of different densities to soak up unwelcome noises than a solitary layer made from one type of soundproofing material. This is because different frequencies are affected by different materials, therefore a range of shapes, layers and densities within your soundproofing armoury are needed.
