Soundproofing Little Lever Greater Manchester (BL3)

Sound is able to travel in two different ways:

1. Through the air by vibration of air molecules.

2. By vibration of solid materials and structures.

Sound can also be transmitted through water, but unless you're looking at soundproofing an aquarium or swimming pool we will simply consider its isolation through materials and air.


Significant amounts of sound can be transferred out of and into a room through gaps around doors, ill fitting windows, heating ducts and even electrical sockets and light fittings. What we hear as sound is in fact the vibration of air molecules being picked up by our ear drums. All sounds are transmitted through the air in the same way; it does not matter if it's machinery, aeroplanes, music, kids playing or busy traffic that generates the sound.

Any holes within a room can be looked at as leaks and will need to be closed off.


Sound waves can additionally be absorbed by, transferred to or reflected by solid materials and structures. Sound will cause vibrations in the walls, floors and ceilings of your rooms, and can cause a resonating effect which is transferred outside the area. Even a room made of solid concrete, such as a basement, can produce a resonance path which transmits sound waves, and even amplify them, to other rooms in a building.

How can we prevent these sounds and vibrations from having an adverse effect on other people? Soundproofing is the solution.


If you've got bare floorboards or floors, think about putting down a few rugs or cover with a carpet to help reduce any vibrations and sound reflections. Not only can such a simple solution help reduce your problem with noise, but it can also brighten up the room. Wall coverings or window drapes can also be used to boost soundproofing and are easy to install and maintain.

Locating and plugging any gaps or holes around the rooms, think windows, light fittings, electrical sockets and doors, is also an easy task for a competent DIY'er. There are some unique acoustic sealants available to buy that absorb the sound waves, and do not transmit them to surrounding materials. Acoustic sealants can be a little more pricey than standard sealant products, but their unique soundproofing qualities far outweigh the small extra cost.

If you're fortunate enough to be renovating or redecorating while dealing with your soundproofing requirements, then look at installing an extra skin of plasterboard (also called sheet rock, gypsum board or drywall). This is an economic and efficient soundproofing material due to its dense nature. It's excellent if you are putting in a home office, movie room or games room in your property in Little Lever. If you are not familiar with putting up plasterboard and studding, it is better to hire a professional team to guarantee you the best soundproofing gains from its use.

If you imagine these spaces as similar to a drum then you will see that by leaving floor or ceiling joist spaces and wall cavities empty, you are effectively creating a noise amplification area.

Soundproofing Foam Little Lever

I was intrigued to learn just recently that a popular search phrase typed into Google and other search engines was "soundproofing foam", and for local searches "acoustical foam Little Lever" and "soundproofing foam Little Lever". This is rather puzzling, because it implies a basic lack of awareness by local people who seem to be of the opinion that their noise issues can be resolved through the use of acoustic foam products.

I don't want to rain on anyone's parade, but soundproofing foam is not the answer to most noise pollution issues, and is certainly not much use if you're looking to eliminate the din from noisy next door neighbours in Little Lever.

Blocking out noise isn't actually the purpose of the familiar "egg box" style foam, which was in fact developed for use in music studios and comparable spaces, where it can enhance the sound clarity in a room, and reduce amplification, reverberation and echoing. This type of acoustic foam isn't effective in preventing noise from passing through a neighbours wall, or stopping sound from travelling around your house. Acoustic foam is in fact porous and doesn't block noise, it absorbs it and actually lets sound pass through it.

It may be that you're actually creating a music studio in your house in Little Lever, in which instance this material could be useful for you.
