Before we are able to identify ways in which to combat sound pollution, it will help if we understand exactly how sound travels and is transmitted.

Soundproofing Northfleet Kent (DA11)

Sound basically moves in two ways around a home:

1. Within and around a solid object by vibration and reflection.

2. By the vibration of air molecules.

As whale and dolphin songs can show, sound also penetrates long distance through water, however unless you wish to soundproof a swimming pool or aquarium we will just look at the methods of soundproofing buildings and rooms.


Sound can be transmitted out of and into a room through open ducting, ill fitting windows, gaps around doors and even electrical switches and sockets. All sound vibrates the molecules in the air and this vibration is what we hear and identify as sound. All sounds are moved through the air in this same manner; it matters not if it's busy traffic, heavy machinery, kids playing, passing aircraft or music that creates the sound.

If you try to imagine your room as if it were a bucket, you are trying to identify any leaks that need sealing before you can fill it with water.


Sound waves can also be absorbed by, transferred to or reflected by solid objects and structures. Sound can be transferred around a building from its source by the vibration of ceilings, walls and floors. Even a room made from solid concrete, such as a cellar, can create a resonance path which transmits any sound waves, and sometimes amplify them, to other areas of a dwelling.

How can we prevent these sounds and vibrations affecting other people? Soundproofing is the remedy.


A bare floor resonates more than one covered with a rug or carpet. Such a simple solution can enhance a room and help to dampen down any noise to boot. Hanging curtains and wall coverings can also prevent sound reflections and vibrations through walls and windows without the need to bring in a professional team of soundproofers.

Locating and sealing any gaps or holes around the rooms, think doors, electrical sockets, windows and light fittings, is also an easy job for a skilled do-it-yourselfer. Stopping up the gaps and holes with a specialist acoustic sealant that can be purchased in some DIY outlets and builders merchants, can make a massive difference to sound transmission in your rooms. They are a tad more pricey than normal sealants or plaster, but they are worthwhile for their soundproofing qualities.

If the room you are working on is an empty canvas and you're soundproofing while you renovate or decorate, think about putting up another skin of plasterboard or soundboard, (also known as drywall, sheet rock or gypsum board). This is a dense type of board which is an economic and useful soundproofing material. It is excellent if you are installing a study, movie room or music studio in your house in Northfleet. It is best to hire a certified Northfleet tradesman to fit the plasterboard unless you've got some experience in this sort of work.

One final easy soundproofing option is to look at the materials your doors are made of. If you have hollow doors installed in your rooms you'll discover that they can vibrate with any sound that is aimed at them. Changing hollow core doors for solid core will significantly improve the soundproofing of an area with only a minimal extra cost.


Some areas, for instance those on aircraft flight-paths or next to busy roads, have naturally more sound pollution problems and will require other ways to solve the situation. This is an instance when retaining the services of an experienced soundproofing service will deliver the best results.

  3. Where is most of the noise pollution emanating from? The doors, windows, ceiling, flooring or walls.
  4. How big is the area you want to be soundproofed?

To soundproof any sort of room requires 2 key strategies:

  1. Sound absorption will need to be enhanced.
  2. Minimise sound amplifying and resonating.

A site survey will be necessary to look at the areas that need improving.

The team will look at ways to add materials that have different densities and masses to boost the sound quality of the room. The addition of acoustic rubbers and foams of varying mass and density will help in absorbing noise and reduce transmission and reflection sources.

Voids between floor joists may require insulation to eliminate the resonating gap between them. If you envision such spaces like a drum then you'll see that by leaving floor or ceiling joist spaces and wall cavities open, you are effectively creating a noise amplification area.

It is better to use mixed layers of different densities to deaden unwanted noises than a solitary layer fabricated from one sort of material. This is due to the fact that the different material densities react better with varying frequencies and will deliver a much better acoustic resolution to your soundproofing project.

The Building Regulations (Part E) cover the soundproofing of residential properties, and will have to be followed by any soundproofing service in Northfleet.
