Soundproofer Ilkeston Derbyshire (DE5): If noise is a problem in your home in Ilkeston then it might be time to look into some soundproofing to make your lounge, home office, studio or bedroom a peaceful haven from your neighbours and the outside world. Alternatively you may wish to soundproof a particular room to keep load noises in, for example in a family room or home cinema, to avoid disturbing others. Whatever your requirements, soundproofing will offer you peace of mind.
It is crucial for us to understand how sound travels around an area before it is possible to find strategies to prevent it from happening.
Sound basically travels in two ways around a home:
1. Around and within a solid object by vibration and reflection.
2. Through the air by vibration of air molecules.
As dolphin and whale song shows, sound also penetrates long distance through water, however unless your aim is to soundproof a swimming pool or aquarium we'll just look at the techniques of soundproofing buildings and rooms.
SOUND THROUGH THE AIR
If you glance around the room or area to be soundproofed and notice open ducting, single glazed windows, gaps around doors and even electrical sockets and light fittings, these are all factors that can transfer sound. Any sound vibrates the molecules in the air and this vibration is what we identify and hear as sound. All sounds travel through the air in this same way; it matters not if it's nearby traffic, machinery, music, passing aircraft or children playing that produces the sound.
Any holes within a room can be considered to be a leak and will have to be plugged.
SOUND TRAVEL THROUGH OBJECTS AND STRUCTURES
As sound moves through the air by vibration, then it stands to reason that this vibration can be transferred to, absorbed by or reflected by various solid materials. Sound can be transported around a building from its source by the vibration of ceilings, walls and floors. Even a room made from solid concrete, such as a cellar, can produce a path of resonance which channels sound waves, and sometimes amplify them, to other rooms in a building.
How should we prevent these sounds and vibrations affecting other folks? Soundproofing is the answer.
SIMPLE SOUNDPROOFING STEPS
Give some thought to covering a bare floor, which resonates and reflects sound, with a carpet or rug. Not only can such a simple and straightforward solution reduce your problem with noise, but it can also jazz up the room. Window drapes and wall coverings can also be used to boost soundproofing and are simple to install and maintain.
Finding and stopping up any gaps or holes in the room, think windows, light fittings, electrical sockets and door frames, is also an easy task for a capable DIY'er. Plugging the gaps and holes with a special acoustic sealant that can be purchased in many DIY stores and builders merchants, can make a big difference to how your room sounds. There might be a considerable difference in the price when compared to a standard sealant, but the soundproofing capabilities are much better and will make a massive difference to a room.
If the room you are working on is a blank canvas and you're soundproofing while you renovate or decorate, look at installing a skin of plasterboard or soundboard, (also called sheet rock, gypsum board or drywall). This is an efficient and economical soundproofing material due to its dense nature. It is effective if you are setting up a study, games room or movie room in your house in Ilkeston. If you're not experienced in fitting plasterboard and framing, it is best to use a specialist team to guarantee the best soundproofing improvements from its installation.
One last easy soundproofing treatment is to look at the materials from which your doors are made. Even though hollow doors are light and relatively affordable, their soundproofing qualities aren't that brilliant. Changing hollow core doors for solid core will boost the soundproofing characteristics of a room with only a little more cost.
PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING SOLUTIONS ILKESTON
Some areas, for instance those on aircraft flight-paths or next to busy traffic routes, have naturally more sound pollution issues and will need other ways to solve the dilemma. The best way to resolve these problems is to call in a reliable soundproofing and acoustic contractor from the local region.
They will ask the following four questions during the initial appraisal of your needs:
- How big is the area you want to have soundproofed?
- What sort of area or room would you like to soundproof? Is it a stud partition wall, a brick wall or a fully lined concrete wall etc.
- Where is most of the noise pollution emanating from? The windows, flooring, doors, ceiling or walls.
- Is it internal noise or external sounds that you would like to target? i.e. To cut out next door neighbours, overflying aircraft or traffic noise, or is it from internally generated sounds from a teenagers bedroom or home cinema for instance.
A certified soundproofing contractor in Ilkeston will look into all these points to provide remedies for your sound issues over a range of budgets. They'll provide you with different strategies to soundproof each of the trouble spots within your home.
PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING OF CEILINGS, FLOORS and WALLS
There are two key areas that need to be addressed to successfully soundproof any room:
- Lower the effect of sound vibration, reflection and amplification by solid surfaces.
- Maximise sound absorption.
A site survey is going to be needed to examine the aspects that need improving.
Solutions identified by the survey will probably include the addition of materials of different densities and masses to help improve the soundproofing characteristics of the area. This extra mass will include ways to increase absorption of the sound energy by the use of acoustic rubber or foam to achieve the maximum impact of noise reduction.
Any voids in the room might need some kind of muffling material to be placed between them to reduce sound resonation. If you envision such spaces as similar to a drum then you can see that by leaving wall cavities and floor or ceiling joist spaces open, you are effectively creating a sound amplifying area.
Mixed layers of materials with different masses and densities do a better job of absorbing sound than a single material layer of one type. This is because the various different materials react better with various frequencies and will provide a much better acoustic resolution to your soundproofing project.
Part E of the Building Regulations focus on the soundproofing of domestic properties, and will need to be followed by any installation company in Ilkeston. These regulations have the aim of protecting neighbours in the area from the impact and effect of noise pollution.
Trade associations in the soundproofing industry that offer guidance, training and qualifications are the Institute of Acoustics (IOA) and the Association of Noise Consultants (ANC). Only those Ilkeston firms that have been appraised and accredited by these organisations for reliability, quality and professionalism are allowed to display the logo.
