First it would be advantageous to appreciate how is transmitted and travels before we can identify ways to combat any excessive noise intruding into or escaping from your home.

Soundproofing Maltby South Yorkshire (S66)

Sound can move in a couple of ways:

1. In open spaces by movement of air.

2. Through objects by the vibration of the material.

Sound is also transmitted through water, however unless you are planning to soundproof an aquarium or swimming pool we'll simply concern ourselves with the isolation via air and materials.


Any gaps around doors, ill fitted windows, open ducting and even electrical switches and sockets can all be methods of transmission of sound outside or into a room. All noise and sounds will initiate the vibration and movement of the air molecules, and this is what we identify and hear. All sounds travel through the air in the same way; it matters not if it's music playing, busy traffic, aeroplanes, kids playing or machinery that generates the sound.

You should therefore visualise a room as a boat and inspect it carefully for leaks that require sealing.


We all know that sounds are simply the vibrations of air being picked up by the ear, but those vibrations are also absorbed by solid objects. Sound can be transmitted around a property from its original source through the vibration of floors, walls and ceilings. Care has to be taken with solid concrete or brick walls, such as in cellars or basements, since sound can be transmitted and amplified to other parts of your home.

However, how can these sound transmitting effects be stopped from creating an issue? The solution is obviously, soundproofing!


If you have bare floors or floorboards, consider laying a few rugs or cover with a carpet to help in reducing any vibrations and sound reflections. These soft coverings and rugs will help soak up noise but can also add a touch of style to a previously bare room. Hanging curtains and wall coverings can also suppress sound vibrations and reflections through walls and windows without the need to bring in a professional team of soundproofers.

Locating and sealing any gaps in your rooms, think light fittings, windows, electrical sockets and doors, is also an easy job for a capable DIY'er. There are some special acoustic sealants available on the market that suppress the sound waves, and do not transmit them to the surrounding materials. Acoustic sealants can be a touch more pricey than standard plaster or other sealant products, but the special design has far greater soundproofing performance and is worth the small extra cost.

If your room is an empty canvas and you're soundproofing as you decorate or renovate, consider putting up another skin of plasterboard or soundboard, (also called gypsum board, sheet rock or drywall). This is a dense type of boarding that's an economic and useful soundproofing material. It is great if you are putting in a studio, home office or home cinema in your house in Maltby. If you aren't familiar with fitting plasterboard and studding, it's best to employ a professional Maltby contractor to guarantee the best soundproofing gains from its installation.

One final simple soundproofing remedy is to check the materials your doors are made of. While hollow doors are lightweight and fairly inexpensive, their soundproofing capabilities are not anything to write home about. Changing hollow core doors for solid core will enhance the soundproofing of a room with only a minimal extra cost.


Some properties, for instance those next to busy roads or on aircraft flight paths, naturally have more sound issues and will need other ways to address the situation. You will get the very best soundproofing results by employing the expertise of a certified soundproofing company.

  1. How big is the room that you need to have soundproofed?
  2. What sort of room or property would you like to soundproof? Does it have a stud partition wall, a brick wall or a fully lined concrete wall etc.
  3. Is it external noise or internal sounds that you would like to target? i.e. To stop passing trains, road noise or neighbours playing loud music, or is it from internally created sounds from a family room or music room for example.
  4. Where is most of the noise coming from? The walls, ceiling, flooring, doors or windows.

Your answers to such questions will allow you to get price quotes for the various available solutions to suit your needs. They will provide you with different methods to soundproof each of the troublesome areas within your home.


To soundproof any kind of room requires two key strategies:

  1. The absorption of sound will need to be improved.
  2. Reduce sound amplifying and reverberation.

To accurately assess the areas that require improvement, an on-site survey needs to be carried out by a local soundproofing company.

Conclusions from the survey will probably include the addition of materials with different masses and densities to help maximise the soundproofing qualities of the area. The addition of acoustic foams and rubbers of different density and mass will help to absorb sounds and reduce transmission and reflection sources.

Voids between floor joists may require insulation to eliminate resonation spaces between them. If you envision these 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 noise amplifying area.

Soundproofing is enhanced if multiple layers of different density materials are utilised, as opposed to installing only one sort of material. This is because different materials react better with different frequencies and will deliver a better overall resolution to your soundproofing exploits.

Part E of the Building Regulations deal with the soundproofing of domestic properties, and will have to be adhered to by any installation company in Maltby. This regulation has the purpose of protecting other residents in the area from the impact of sound pollution.

Soundproofing Underlay Maltby

If you are experiencing a lot of troublesome noise in your Maltby home, a great way to lower this without too much disruption is by adding some acoustic or soundproofing underlay to your floors. Both wooden and concrete floors are suitable for these underlays, and they can be installed under engineered wood, carpet, laminate and vinyl planks.

Where there are specific problems with impact as opposed to airborne noise, acoustic underlay is especially beneficial. Nowadays, the increased popularity of hard floor finishes has contributed to more and more complaints about impact noise in lots of Maltby properties. Things like moving furniture, general foot traffic and kids stomping around, are the kind of noise that we are referring to here.

Don't confuse standard carpet underlay with genuine soundproofing or acoustic underlay, because some unprincipled carpet stores may try to pass off such products, with claims that they are suitable substitutes. If you're encountering significant noise issues in your property in Maltby, visit a legitimate supplier and purchase a quality soundproofing underlay that's appropriate for your particular circumstances.

Even though the installation of acoustic underlay can be very successful for reducing impact noise within the home, airborne noise such as shouting, deafening music and blaring TV's, can be another thing altogether, with some underlays being far better than others and having varying success rates. Discussing the specific types of noise you're attempting to reduce with your soundproofing specialist or supplier is vital, and this should enable you to buy the best product for your needs.

Acoustic Mineral Wool

For you noise reduction needs in Maltby, AMW (otherwise known as acoustic mineral wool) is one of the handiest materials for soundproofing homes or other structures, and has several applications. Acoustic mineral wool is designed specifically for installation in the cavity spaces of walls, ceilings and floors, to enhance acoustic performance, absorb airborne sound and dampen vibration.

Acoustic Mineral Wool Maltby

Commonly available in slabs of 1200mm x 600mm, acoustic mineral wool also comes in several thicknesses (25mm, 50mm, 75mm and 100mm). Acoustic mineral wool is safe to use in your home in Maltby, as it has an inert chemical composition and is non-combustible, it is also eco-friendly being partly made from recycled materials. It doesn't encourage the growth of bacteria, mould or fungi, nor does it react with any materials or substances that it comes into contact with (i.e. plastics, metal wall ties, masonry or brickwork).

When utilised as a sound absorption infill between flooring joists, suspended ceilings and stud partitions, AMW is particularly effective, and it's renowned in the construction sector for its thermal, acoustic and fire insulation qualities. When it comes to separating floors and walls, and when used along with other sound absorbing solutions, acoustic mineral wool can help in adhering to The Building Regulations (Part E).

Soundproofing Foam Maltby

After undertaking some basic keyphrase research, it it would seem to be the case that one of the most commonly searched for terms on Google and Yahoo is for "soundproofing foam" and for householders in Maltby, perhaps "soundproofing foam Maltby". Now, this suggests that many householders are trying to find a solution to soundproof their properties, and are looking to soundproofing foam to accomplish this.

I don't want to spoil anyone's day, but soundproofing foam isn't really the answer to most noise pollution problems, and is certainly not effective if you are hoping to eliminate the din from your noisy neighbours in Maltby.

The "egg box" shaped foam that you regularly see for sale in tile or sheet form isn't really meant for blocking out noise, but is really designed for use in music studios and comparable settings, to reduce amplifying and echoing and improve the acoustic performance of a room. This kind of acoustic foam is not efficient at stopping sound from passing through a party wall or preventing noise from moving freely around the rooms of your house. Soundproofing foam is in fact porous and does not block sound, it absorbs it and lets sound pass through it.

It might be that you actually have a music room in your property in Maltby, in which case this product might be extremely useful for you.
