Before we are able to find strategies for eliminating sound pollution, it might help if we understand just how sound travels and is transmitted.

Soundproofing New Alresford Hampshire (SO24)

Sound basically travels in two ways around a home:

1. Through the air by vibration of air molecules.

2. Through objects by the vibration of the material.

As dolphin and whale song shows, sound also penetrates long distance through water, however unless you wish to soundproof an aquarium or swimming pool we will look only at the methods of soundproofing rooms and buildings.

SOUND THROUGH THE AIR

Any open air-ducting, gaps around doors, ill fitting windows and even electrical sockets and light fittings can all be responsible for the transmission of sound into or outside a room. All noise vibrates the air molecules and these vibrations are what we pick up and hear as sound. Irrespective of the source of the sound; heavy machinery, music playing, kids playing, aeroplanes or nearby traffic, all sounds are created and transferred in exactly the same fashion.

If you try and imagine your room as a bucket, and you are trying to find any leaks that need sealing before you fill it with liquid.

SOUND TRAVELLING THROUGH OBJECTS AND STRUCTURES

Sound waves can also be reflected by, transferred to or absorbed by solid materials and structures. Sound will vibrate the floors, ceilings and walls of your rooms, and may cause a resonation effect that is transferred outside the room itself. Even if a room is built from a dense material that's somewhat resistant to vibrations, such as a concrete lined basement, the sound can be reflected and possibly even amplified to other areas of the property.

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

BASIC SOUNDPROOFING STEPS

A bare floor resonates more than one covered with a rug or carpet. Not only will such a simple and straightforward solution reduce your problem with noise, but it can also jazz up the room. Window drapes and wall coverings can also be employed to improve soundproofing and are simple to install.

Locating and plugging any gaps around the rooms, think electrical sockets, door frames, light fittings and windows, is also a simple task for a competent do-it-yourselfer. Sealing the gaps and holes with a specialist acoustic sealant that can be purchased in some DIY and building material shops, will make a massive difference to how your room sounds. They may be a bit more pricey than standard sealants or plaster, but they're worth it for their soundproofing efficiency.

If the room you are working on is a blank canvas and you're doing the soundproofing while you renovate or decorate, think about putting up a layer of soundboard or plasterboard, (also known as gyproc, drywall or sheet rock). This is an economic and efficient soundproofing material owing to its dense nature. If you are fitting a studio, home office or cinema room then plasterboard will help to minimise sound transference from and to that room, and can be easily decorated after installation. If you are not familiar with fitting plasterboard and studding, it's wise to employ a professional team to guarantee the optimal soundproofing improvements from its use.

The last solution for DIY enthusiasts is to check out the doors in your property in New Alresford.

Expect to answer the following four questions during a review of your specific soundproofing requirements:

  1. What type of room or area do you want to soundproof? Is it a stud partition wall, a lined concrete wall or a brick wall etc.
  2. Is it internal sounds or external noise that you wish to address? i.e. To suppress noisy neighbours, traffic or trains, or is it from internally produced sounds from a family room or music studio for instance.
  3. From which direction does the sound seem to be coming from? i.e. Through the walls, floor, windows, ceiling or doors or a mix of all.
  4. How big is the area you wish to have soundproofed?

With accurate answers to these queries a good quality soundproofing installer in New Alresford will come up with solutions to suit your situation, and just as importantly, your allotted budget. The areas of your room that are responsible for the biggest noise issues may each need different solutions.

PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING OF CEILINGS, WALLS and FLOORS

To soundproof any sort of room requires 2 key approaches:

  1. Increase the absorption of sound.
  2. Cut down on the effects on the way sound is reflected off and transmitted through solid surfaces.

This requires an on-site survey to determine what areas require developing from the current state.

A professional soundproofing company will investigate the different methods for adding mass and density to the main trouble spots. This additional mass will help to increase absorption of the sound energy by the use of acoustic rubber or foam to gain the maximum impact of noise reduction.

Voids between joists may require insulating to eliminate resonation spaces between them. If you imagine these spaces like a drum then you'll see that by leaving floor or ceiling joist spaces and wall cavities open, you're creating a noise amplification area.

Soundproofing is enhanced if different densities and materials are used, as opposed to installing a single sort of material. This is because the different material densities react in different ways with varying frequencies and will provide a better overall resolution to your soundproofing project.

Any soundproofing specialist in New Alresford will need to conform to the the Building Regulations (Part E), if dealing with a residential property. Such requirements should be followed in order to safeguard yourself and others from the harmful effects of noise pollution.

Trade bodies in the soundproofing sector who offer training, advice and qualifications are the Institute of Acoustics and the Association of Noise Consultants. Any New Alresford firm bearing ANC or IOA accreditation has been vetted to ensure they offer the highest quality, standards and reliability of work within the industry.

Soundproofing Foam New Alresford

It seems from some simple keyphrase research that one of the most popular searches on Google and other search engines is for "soundproofing foam" and for local householders, "soundproofing foam New Alresford". This is somewhat perplexing, because it implies a lack of understanding by local property owners who seem to be under the impression that their noise issues can be sorted with acoustic foam.

I don't wish to spoil anyone's day, but soundproofing foam isn't the answer to most noise problems, and is most certainly not effective if you're hoping to block out the racket from noisy neighbours in New Alresford.

The "egg box" style foam that you often see being sold in sheet or tile form is not actually intended for blocking out noise, but was really developed for use in music studios and comparable settings, to reduce amplifying and echoing and enhance the sound clarity in a room. This product is not effective in preventing noise from passing through a wall from a neighbouring property, or even to stop sound from travelling around your property and causing a nuisance. Acoustic foam is porous and does not block sound, it absorbs it and actually lets sound pass through it.

If however, you're building a music room, this may be a valuable product for you to use, and can be purchased in various thicknesses (normally 25mm and 50mm), and in different sheet and tile sizes.

People looking to enhance their living or working spaces in New Alresford will find these specialist curtains, designed to dampen, block and absorb sound waves, an attractive option.

Soundproof curtains are produced using dense materials that are capable of reflecting and absorbing sound waves. The layers usually consist of heavy fabrics, such as suede, velvet, or multiple layers of woven fabric, along with an inner core made of mass-loaded vinyl or foam. These materials effectively reduce the level of sound that enters a room by working together to mitigate the transmission of noise from the outside.

Soundproof curtains are an excellent option for those who want noise reduction without the hassle of complicated installation. Unlike regular soundproofing techniques, which are complicated and time-consuming, these curtains can be simply hung on existing curtain rods or tracks.

Moreover, some curtains may be better at cancelling out external noise, while others may be better at absorbing echoes and reverberations within a room. This makes them ideal for office spaces, recording studios or home theatres. (75635 - Soundproof Curtains New Alresford)
