Soundproofer Morecambe Lancashire (LA4): If noise is causing problems in your Morecambe home then it may be time to consider some soundproofing to make your bedroom, home office, living room or studio a haven of peace and quiet from your neighbours, fellow occupants and the outside world. Conversely you might want to soundproof an individual room to keep load noises in, such as in a home cinema or family room, so that others don't get disturbed. No matter which soundproofing needs are required, it's essential for you and your neighbour's peace of mind and sanity.
Before we can discover strategies for eliminating sound pollution, it would be a good idea to understand just how sound travels.
Basically, sound moves in two ways around a home:
1. Through the vibration of objects or materials.
2. The vibration or air molecules through the air.
As dolphin and whale song shows, sound also penetrates long distance through water, however unless your intention is to soundproof an aquarium or pool we will just look at the techniques of soundproofing structures and rooms.
SOUND TRAVEL THROUGH THE AIR
If you take a good look at the space to be soundproofed and notice gaps around doors, open ducting, ill fitted windows and even electrical sockets and light fittings, these are all aspects that can cause the transmission of sound. Any sound vibrates the molecules in the air and these vibrations are what we hear and identify as sound. It doesn't matter if it's heavy machinery, music playing, aeroplanes, kids playing or busy traffic, they all create and transfer sound in the same manner.
It is helpful to visualise a room as a boat and carefully inspect it for leaks before sailing off into the sunset.
SOUND TRAVELLING THROUGH STRUCTURES AND OBJECTS
Sound waves can also be transferred to, reflected by or absorbed by solid materials and structures. Sound can be transferred around a dwelling from its original source via the vibration of floors, walls and ceilings. Even a room made from solid concrete, such as a cellar, can generate a resonance path which channels any sound waves, and sometimes amplify them, to other areas of a structure.
How do we stop these vibrations having an impact on others? Soundproofing of course.
BASIC STEPS IN SOUNDPROOFING
Think about covering a bare floor surface, which reflects and resonates sound, with a carpet or rug. Such a straightforward solution can enhance a room and help dampen down any noises at the same time. Hanging wall coverings and curtains can also prevent sound reflections and vibrations through windows and walls without the need to bring in a team of professional soundproofers.
Another inexpensive and do-it-yourself remedy is to plug any gaps around doors, electrical sockets, light fittings and windows. There are unique acoustic sealants available to buy which suppress the sound waves, and do not transfer them to the surrounding materials. They might be somewhat more expensive than regular sealants or plaster, but they're worth the cost for their soundproofing efficiency.
If the room you are working on is a blank canvas and you're soundproofing while you decorate or renovate, look at installing a skin of soundboard or plasterboard, (also known as sheet rock, drywall or gypsum board). This is an efficient and economical soundproofing material due to its dense nature. If you are fitting a movie room, studio or study then plasterboard will help reduce sound transmission to and from that room, and can be readily decorated after installation. If you do choose plasterboard to aid your soundproofing exploits it is best to bring in a specialist fitter in Morecambe, to gain the maximum possible benefit from its installment.
Lastly you need to inspect all doors in the area you're looking to soundproof. If you've got hollow doors installed in your rooms you'll discover they can vibrate and will resonate any sound that hits them. Solid wood doors, whilst a bit more pricey, can have a significant effect on the soundproofing capabilities of a room.
PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING SOLUTIONS MORECAMBE
If the sound pollution is excessive in your location, on account of aircraft passing overhead, or heavy traffic on a busy road for example, then more severe methods to deal with the excess noise may have to be explored. The best way to resolve these issues is to call in a professional soundproofing and acoustic firm from the local region.
Expect to answer the four following questions during an investigation of your specific soundproofing needs:
- What is the main place where the sound creates the biggest issues? i.e. Is it coming up through the flooring, down from overhead, from the walls or through doors/windows, or is it a mix of all these factors.
- Is it external noise or internal sounds that you would like to target? i.e. To reduce noisy neighbours, overflying aircraft or traffic noise, or is it from internally created sounds from a home cinema or music room for instance.
- What exactly is the size of the space or room that must be soundproofed?
- What sort of area or room do you need to soundproof? Does it have a stud partition wall, a brick wall or a fully lined concrete wall etc.
Your answers to these queries will allow you to get quotes for the various available solutions that match your circumstances. There will be distinct remedies for each of the main key areas of the space you wish to soundproof.
PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING OF WALLS, CEILINGS and FLOORS
Two key strategies are required to soundproof any size of space:
- The absorption of sound will have to be maximised.
- Reduce sound resonating and amplifying.
A site survey will be necessary to look at the aspects to be improved.
Solutions from the survey will include adding some materials of different masses and densities to help enhance the soundproofing capabilities of the area. The addition of acoustic rubbers and foams of varying mass and density will help in absorbing sounds and reduce transmission and reflection sources.
Voids between floor joists might need insulation to remove the resonating space between them. If you picture such spaces as similar to a drum or wooden cajon then you'll see that by leaving wall cavities and floor or ceiling joist spaces open, you're creating a sound amplifying area.
It is best to use combined layers of different density materials to deaden undesirable noises than a solitary layer made of one type of material. This is due to the fact that different frequencies are affected by different materials, therefore a variety of shapes, layers and densities within your soundproofing panels are needed.
All soundproofing technicians in Morecambe need to follow the regulations for residential buildings as specified by Part E of the Building Regulations. These legislation have to be adopted in order to safeguard yourself and neighbours from being negatively impacted by noise pollution.
