Before we can find techniques for reducing sound pollution, it will help if we understand just how sound travels.

Soundproofing Llanelli Wales (SA14)

Basically, sound travels in two ways throughout your room:

1. Through the vibration of objects or materials.

2. Through the air by vibration of air molecules.

Sound can also travel through water, however unless you're thinking about soundproofing an aquarium or swimming pool we'll just consider the isolation via air and materials.

SOUND TRAVELLING THROUGH THE AIR

Any gaps around doors, open air-ducting, single glazed windows and even electrical switches and sockets can all affect the transmission of sound into or outside a room. All noise vibrates the molecules in the air and these vibrations are what we identify and hear as sound. Regardless of the source of the noise; music, children playing, machinery, traffic or passing aircraft, all sounds are generated and transferred in precisely the same fashion.

Any openings in the room can be considered to be leaks and will need to be plugged.

SOUND THROUGH OBJECTS AND STRUCTURES

Sound waves can also be absorbed by, transferred to or reflected by solid materials and structures. Sound will vibrate the ceilings, floors and walls of your rooms, and can result in a resonating effect that's transferred outside of the area. Even a solid concrete room, such as a cellar, can produce a path of resonance which transports sound waves, and even amplify them, to other parts of a structure.

But, how can these effects be stopped from creating an issue? The solution is not surprisingly, soundproofing!

SIMPLE STEPS IN SOUNDPROOFING

If you have bare floors or floorboards, consider covering them with carpet or laying a few rugs to help reduce any sound reflections and vibrations. The rugs or other soft coverings will help absorb noise and can also add a touch of elegance to a previously bare room. Curtains, in particular heavy blackout ones, can also suppress any noises from escaping or invading a room, cost-effectively and without requiring specialist soundproofing.

Search for areas in your rooms where sound can escape or come in; sockets, light fittings, windows and door frames, and seal the gaps or holes. There are some unique acoustic sealants available on the market that suppress the sound waves, and don't transmit them to surrounding materials. Acoustic sealants are inclined to be a bit more expensive than regular sealant products, but the special design has far greater soundproofing performance and is worth the small extra cost.

For anybody renovating a property or redecorating a room, look at the soundproofing gains of adding another skin of plasterboard or soundboard, (also known as gyproc, drywall or sheet rock), while you're undertaking the project. This is a fairly dense board which is an economic and useful soundproofing material. If you're putting in a cinema room, home office or studio then plasterboard can help to minimise sound pollution for that room, and can be easily decorated after installment. If you do choose plasterboard to help with your soundproofing it is advisable to bring in a professional fitter in Llanelli, to achieve the maximum effect from its installation.

Any voids in the area might require some sort of deadening material to be placed between them to lower noise resonation. Wall cavities or flooring and ceiling voids can all be likened to a drum, where the space acts as an amplifying area for any undesirable sounds.

Soundproofing is maximised if multiple layers of different density materials are utilised, as opposed to installing only one kind of material. This is due to the fact that different frequencies are affected by different materials, therefore a range of layers, densities and shapes within your soundproofing panels are needed for the best results.

Any soundproofing firm in Llanelli must comply with the the Building Regulations (Part E), if dealing with a residential property. Part E of the Building Regulations is a legally binding requirement to protect yourself and neighbours from being affected by noise pollution in an area where folks live and work.
