Before we are able to discover methods for reducing sound pollution, it would be a good idea to understand how sound travels and is transmitted.

Soundproofing Romford Essex (RM1)

There are only two ways by which sound can travel around a room:

1. In open spaces by movement of air.

2. Around and within a solid object by vibration and reflection.

As whale and dolphin song shows, sound also travels through water, however unless your intention is to soundproof a swimming pool or aquarium we'll look only at the methods of soundproofing rooms and structures.


Any gaps around doors, single glazed windows, heating ducts and even electrical sockets and light fittings can all be responsible for the transmission of sound outside or into a room. All sounds and noise will initiate movement and vibration of the air molecules, and it is this that we hear. All sounds are moved through the air in the same manner; it doesn't matter if it's machinery, busy traffic, children playing, music or aeroplanes that produces the sound.

If you can think of your room as if it were a bucket, and you are trying to find any leaks that need sealing before you can fill it up with liquid.


We know that sound is merely the vibrations of air being processed by the ear, however those vibrations are also reflected by or transferred to solid objects. The ceilings, walls and floors will all have an effect on how sound travels around a room, and may even transfer those vibrations to other parts of a building. Even if a room is built from a solid material which is resistant against sound, such as a concrete lined basement, the sound can sometimes be transmitted and even amplified to other areas of the building.

So, how can we stop this resonation having an impact on others? Soundproofing of course.


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

Search for areas in your room where noise can come in or escape from; door frames, windows, light fittings and electrical sockets, and stop up any gaps. Sealing the holes and gaps with a specialist acoustic sealant that can be purchased in many DIY shops and builders merchants, will make a big difference to how your room sounds. There will be a considerable difference in the price when compared with a standard sealant, however the soundproofing capabilities are a lot better and can make a massive difference to a room's soundproofing.

If your room is a blank canvas and you are soundproofing while you renovate or decorate, consider installing a layer of soundboard or plasterboard, (also called sheet rock, drywall or gyproc). Plasterboard is a dense material which is both effective and economical in soundproofing an area. It's ideal for spaces such as studios, home offices or home cinemas being built within your house in Romford. If you aren't experienced in putting up plasterboard and framing, it is wise to hire a professional Romford contractor to guarantee the optimum soundproofing benefits from its installation.

Soundproofer Quotes in Romford Essex

One last easy soundproofing option is to check the materials from which your doors are made. Although hollow doors are light and fairly affordable, their soundproofing attributes aren't all that brilliant. Changing hollow doors for solid ones will improve the soundproofing of an area with only a little more cost.


Some areas, for example those on aircraft flight-paths or next to busy routes, have naturally more sound pollution problems and will require other ways to tackle the predicament. The best way to resolve these issues is to contact a competent soundproofing and acoustic contractor from your local region.

  3. What kind of room or area would you like to soundproof? Does it have a fully lined concrete wall, a brick wall or a stud partition wall etc.

Voids between joists might need insulation to eliminate resonation spaces between them. If you envision such spaces like a drum or wooden cajon then you'll understand that by leaving floor or ceiling joist spaces and wall cavities empty, you are creating a sound amplifying area.

Combined layers of materials with different densities and masses do a better job of absorbing sound than a single layer of one material type. This is because the various frequencies are absorbed differently by different materials, therefore a range of layers, densities and shapes within your soundproofing armoury are required.

Part E of the Building Regulations focus on the soundproofing of domestic properties, and will have to be observed by any installation company in Romford. These regulations have the aim of protecting neighbours and other residents in the area from the impacts of noise pollution.

Both concrete and wood floors are suitable for these underlays, and they can be installed beneath engineered wood, carpet, vinyl planks and laminate.

When your problem is for the most part impact noise and not airborne noise, soundproofing underlay is an especially effective remedy. Nowadays, the increased popularity of "harder" floor finishes has led to more problems with impact noise in lots of Romford households. Things like moving furniture, general foot traffic and children stomping around, are the type of noise that we are talking about here.

Although some carpet suppliers might try to palm you off with ordinary carpet underlay with claims that it has acoustic qualities, this should not be confused with genuine soundproofing underlay. If you have serious issues with noise make sure you invest in a good quality acoustic underlay.

Although impact noise can be dramatically lowered with the help of acoustic underlays, they have varying levels of success when it comes to shouting, blaring TV's and deafening music, and other airborne noise pollution. So, before buying an underlay product it is vital to establish the specific kinds of noise you are looking to lower, and discuss this with your supplier or soundproofing expert.
