Before we can find strategies for countering sound pollution, it might help if we understand exactly how sound travels and is transmitted.

Soundproofing Sandown Isle of Wight (PO36)

There basically two ways by which sound can move around a home:

1. By vibration of solid materials and structures.

2. By the vibration of air molecules.

Sound is also transmitted through water, however unless you are thinking about soundproofing a swimming pool or aquarium we'll simply concern ourselves with its isolation via materials and air.

SOUND THROUGH THE AIR

Any gaps around doors, ill fitting windows, open ducting and even electrical switches and sockets can all be methods of transmission of sound into or outside a room. What we identify and hear as sound is really the vibration of air molecules being picked up by our ear drums. All sounds are transmitted through the air in this same way; it does not matter if it's kids playing, busy traffic, aircraft, music playing or machinery that generates the sound.

Any gaps in a room can be regarded as a leak and will need to be closed off.

SOUND TRAVELLING THROUGH OBJECTS AND STRUCTURES

If sound moves through the air by vibrations, then it seems reasonable to assume that such vibrations can be absorbed by, transferred to or reflected by various materials. Sound will cause vibrations in the floors, ceilings and walls of your rooms, and may lead to a resonation effect which is transferred outside the room itself. Care must be taken with solid brick or concrete walls, such as a cellar, as sound can be reflected and sometimes even amplified to other parts of your property.

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

BASIC STEPS IN SOUNDPROOFING

Consider covering a bare floor, which resonates and reflects sound, with a carpet or rug. These soft coverings and rugs will help absorb noise but can also add a bit of style to an otherwise bare room. Hanging curtains and wall coverings can also avoid sound vibrations and reflections through windows and walls without the need to hire a team of professional soundproofing installers.

Locating and plugging any holes or gaps in your rooms, think sockets, light fittings, windows and doors, is also a straightforward job for a skilled do-it-yourselfer. Sealing the gaps and holes with an acoustic sealant found in some DIY and building material shops, will make a massive difference to how your room sounds. There may be a little difference in price when compared to a regular sealant, but the soundproofing capabilities are far better and can make a huge difference to a room.

For anyone renovating a property or redecorating a room, look at the soundproofing gains of adding an extra skin of soundboard or plasterboard, (also called gypsum board, drywall or sheet rock), whilst you are undertaking this project. This is an economic and efficient soundproofing material owing to its dense nature. If you are fitting a music studio, cinema room or home office then plasterboard can help reduce sound transmission from and to that room, and can be easily decorated after installation. If you aren't proficient in fitting studding and plasterboard, it is generally best to use a specialist Sandown contractor to guarantee the optimum soundproofing improvements from its installation.

The last solution for do-it-yourself enthusiasts is to check out the doors in your property in Sandown. Hollow doors are a relatively cheap option but their soundproofing qualities are far from ideal. Solid wood doors, while a little more expensive, can have a considerable effect on the soundproofing capabilities of a room.

  2. How large is the room you want to have soundproofed?
  3. What are the particular sounds that need to soundproofed? i.e. Is it outside noises such as next door neighbours, street noise, passing trains etc, or is it from within your property such as a music room or family room.
  4. What kind of room or property do you want to soundproof? Is it a plasterboarded partition wall, a lined concrete wall or a brick wall etc.

Your answers to these queries will allow you to receive quotes for the different solutions available to suit your circumstances. They will provide you with different methods for soundproofing each of the main trouble spots within your home.

PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING OF WALLS, FLOORS and CEILINGS

To soundproof any sort of room requires two key approaches:

  1. Improve the absorption of sound.
  2. Minimise sound amplifying and reverberation.

To precisely analyse the aspects that need improvement, an on-site survey must be carried out by a local soundproofing company.

The team will work out ways of adding materials with different masses and densities to increase the sound quality of the room. The use of acoustic rubbers and foams of varying mass and density will help in absorbing noises and reduce transmission and reflection sources.

Voids between joists might need insulating to remove resonation spaces between them. If you imagine a drum or wooden cajon, you are looking at a sound amplifying void surrounded by a resonating material; essentially what you might find within floor and ceiling joists, or wall cavities.

Combined layers of materials with different masses and densities work better at absorbing sound than a single layer of one material type. The diverse materials will reduce different frequencies of sound and provide a more balanced feeling and auditory experience to a room.

All soundproofing firms in Sandown need to follow the legislation for residential buildings as laid out in Part E of the Building Regulations. Such regulations should be observed so as to safeguard yourself and neighbours from the harmful effects of sound pollution.

Trade bodies in the soundproofing sector who offer training, qualifications and advice are the Institute of Acoustics and the Association of Noise Consultants. Any Sandown contractor displaying ANC or IOA accreditation will have been vetted to ensure they provide the highest standards, reliability and quality of work within the soundproofing industry.

Acoustic Mineral Wool

AMW (otherwise known as acoustic mineral wool) is one of the most useful materials available for soundproofing homes and buildings in Sandown and has various applications for your noise reduction requirements. Designed specifically for installation in the cavity spaces of ceilings, floors and walls, acoustic mineral wool is effective in dampening vibrations, enhancing acoustic performance and absorbing sound waves.

Acoustic Mineral Wool Sandown

Usually available in "slabs" of 600mm x 1200mm, acoustic mineral wool also comes in several thicknesses (25mm, 50mm, 75mm and 100mm). Made partly from recycled materials, AMW is non-flammable and is chemically inert. It is rare for mould, bacteria or fungi to be found growing in AMW, and it won't react with plastics, masonry, metal wall ties, brickwork, or other materials or substances that it makes close contact with.

When used as a sound absorbing infill between stud partitioning, flooring joists and suspended ceilings, AMW is notably effective, and it is renowned in the building sector for its fire, acoustic and thermal insulation attributes. In relation to separating floors and walls, and in order to observe The Building Regulations (Part E), acoustic mineral wool can be used side by side with other acoustic solutions.

Acoustic or Soundproofing Underlay Sandown

Putting in an acoustic underlay is a great way of adding a degree of soundproofing to your house in Sandown without the need for any serious disturbance. This is designed for use on wood or concrete floors and can be laid under engineered wood, carpet, laminate, vinyl planks, and other types of flooring.

When your issue is for the most part impact noise and not airborne noise, acoustic underlay is a particularly effective solution. The increased popularity of "hard" floor finishes in Sandown, means there are a growing number of issues with impact noise. This is particularly problematic when coming from rooms upstairs, and the type of noise issues that we're talking about here is general footfall, kids running around and moving furniture.

You should not get soundproofing underlay confused with regular carpet underlay, although some carpet distributors may try to palm you off with this claiming it has decent soundproofing benefits. If you have real issues with noise make sure you invest in a quality soundproofing underlay.

While the installation of acoustic underlay can be really effective in reducing impact noise within your property, airborne noise like deafening music, blaring televisions and shouting, can be a different kettle of fish, with some underlays being far better than others and enjoying differing degrees of success. So, it's important to pinpoint the precise types of noise you are attempting to lower before deciding on a particular underlay, and chat with your soundproofing specialist or supplier about your specific circumstances.
