Before we can identify techniques for combating sound pollution, it would be advantageous to understand precisely how sound travels and is transmitted.

Soundproofing Kearsley Greater Manchester (BL4)

There are only a couple of ways in which sound can travel around a room:

1. Through objects by the vibration of the material.

2. In open spaces by movement of air.

Although sound also travels through liquids, unless you are looking to eliminate sounds from a swimming pool or aquarium, we will only be interested in how to soundproof the rooms of a structure.


Any gaps around doors, ill fitted windows, open air-ducting and even light fittings and electrical sockets can all be responsible for the transmission of sound outside or into a room. All noise vibrates the molecules in the air and this vibration is what we pick up and hear as sound. Irrespective of the source of the noise; road traffic, children playing, music playing, heavy machinery or aircraft, all sound is generated and transferred in precisely the same manner.

Any openings in the room can be considered to be leaks and will have to be closed off.


Sound waves can also be absorbed by, reflected by or transferred to solid materials and structures. The walls, ceilings and floors will all have an effect on how sound travels around an area, and may even transmit those vibrations to other areas of a property. Even in a room that's encased in a dense material which is resistant to vibrations, such as a concrete lined basement, the sound can be transmitted and perhaps even amplified to other parts of the building.

However, how can these effects be prevented from causing a problem? The solution is of course, soundproofing!


Think about covering a bare floor surface, which resonates and reflects sound, with a carpet or rug. The rugs or other soft coverings will help to absorb noise but can also add a bit of style to a previously bare room. Wall coverings or window drapes can also be employed to improve soundproofing and are easy to install.

Finding and plugging any gaps around the rooms, think electrical sockets, windows, door frames and light fittings, is also a simple task for a capable DIY'er. You can find specialist acoustic sealants in many DIY outlets which repress the transmission of sound by absorbing the sound waves. Acoustic sealants can be a bit more pricey than standard plaster or other sealant products, however their remarkable soundproofing qualities far outweigh the extra cost.

For anyone redecorating a room or renovating a property, consider the soundproofing benefits of adding another layer of plasterboard or soundboard, (also called sheet rock, gyproc or drywall), whilst you are tackling this work. Plasterboard is a dense material that is both economical and efficient for soundproofing purposes. It's superb if you're installing a studio, cinema room or study in your house in Kearsley. It's preferable to hire a professional Kearsley tradesman to put up the plasterboard unless you are experienced in this task.

The last solution for do-it-yourself enthusiasts is to think about the doors in your home in Kearsley. If you've got hollow doors fitted to rooms you'll find they can vibrate with any sound that is aimed at them. Solid doors, whilst a tad more expensive, can have a considerable effect on the soundproofing capabilities of a room.


If the level of sound is extreme in your location, because of traffic noise from a busy road nearby, or aircraft flying over for example, then more substantial methods to reduce the excess noise may have to be investigated. The best solution for resolving these issues is to call in a specialist acoustic and soundproofing contractor from your local region.

Soundproofer Near Kearsley Greater Manchester

They should ask the following four questions during a basic appraisal of your requirements:

  1. What space requires soundproofing? i.e. Is it a plasterboard partition room, a brick walled room, a loft conversion or a concrete lined basement.
  2. How large is the area that you need to have soundproofed?
  3. What noise or sounds are you looking to eliminate? i.e. External issues like traffic noise, trains, next door neighbours etc, or sounds within your house from a teenagers bedroom or home cinema.
  4. Where is most of the noise emanating from? The walls, floor, windows, doors or ceiling.

With accurate answers to these queries a good quality soundproofing company in Kearsley will be able to supply you with solutions for your situation, and just as importantly, your allotted budget. Solutions will vary according to the different materials needed for each of the main trouble spots within your environment.


There are two key areas that must be dealt with to soundproof any space:

  1. Cut down on the ways that sound is reflected off and transmitted through solid surfaces.
  2. Update and increase the level of sound absorption.

To accurately determine the soundproofing areas that need improvement, a site survey must be completed by a soundproofing expert.

Solutions identified by the survey will probably include the addition of materials with different densities to help increase the soundproofing qualities of the room. The use of acoustic foams and rubbers of different density and mass will help in absorbing noise and reduce transmission and reflection sources.

Any voids in the room might require some sort of deadening material to be inserted between them to reduce noise resonation. If you imagine a drum or wooden cajon, you're looking at a noise amplifying void surrounded by a resonating material; essentially what you may encounter within ceiling and floor joists, or wall cavities.

It is best to use mixed layers of different densities to absorb undesired sounds than a single layer made from one material. This is due to the fact that the various different materials react in different ways with various frequencies and will provide a much better acoustic resolution to your soundproofing project.

All soundproofing installers in Kearsley will be needing to follow the requirements for domestic properties specified by the Building Regulations (Part E). This set of regulations is a requirement in law to protect your neighbours and yourself from the effects of sound pollution in an environment where people work and live.

The Association of Noise Consultants and the Institute of Acoustics are trade organisations who offer qualifications and training, and represent the best in companies and contractors that offer soundproofing services. Any Kearsley company displaying ANC or IOA accreditation will have been appraised to ensure they provide the highest standards, reliability and quality of work within the soundproofing industry.

Soundproofing Foam Kearsley

I was fascinated to discover just recently that a popular search phrase typed into Google and Yahoo was "soundproofing foam", and local searches included things like "soundproofing foam Kearsley" and "acoustical foam Kearsley". Now, this implies that a lot of folks are in search of a solution to soundproof their homes in Kearsley, and are hoping that acoustic foam will accomplish this.

It is not a case of me trying to rain on your parade, but the simple truth is that soundproofing foam isn't likely to be the answer, and will definitely not reduce the din caused by noisy neighbours in Kearsley.

The "egg box" shaped foam that you frequently see being sold in sheet or tile form isn't really intended for blocking out noise, but is really designed for use in music studios and comparable situations, to reduce echoing and reverberation and improve the acoustic performance of a room. Soundproofing foam of this sort is not good for stopping noise from moving around your house, or preventing sound from passing through a neighbouring wall. Since it's porous, acoustic foam absorbs sound and allows sound to pass through it, rather than blocking it.

It may be that you actually have a music studio in your house in Kearsley, in which case this product may be handy for you.
