Before we are able to identify strategies for eliminating sound pollution, it would be a good idea to understand exactly how sound travels.

Soundproofing Scarcliffe Derbyshire (S44)

There basically two ways in which sound can be transmitted around a home:

1. Through the air by vibration of air molecules.

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

Despite the fact that sound can also travel through water, unless you're looking to reduce noise from an aquarium or swimming pool, we will just be interested in how to soundproof the rooms of a structure.


If you take a good look at the room or area to be soundproofed and notice ill fitting windows, heating ducts, gaps around doors and even electrical sockets and switches, these are all factors that can transfer sound. What we hear as sound is in fact the vibration of air molecules reaching our ear drum. It matters not whether it's machinery, children playing, road traffic, aeroplanes or music, they all create and transmit sound in the same manner.

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


If sound moves through the air by vibration, then it makes perfect sense that this vibration can be reflected by, absorbed by or transferred to various solid materials. The walls, floors and ceilings will all have an effect on how sound travels around an area, and can even transfer those vibrations to other rooms in a building. Care has to be taken with solid brick or concrete walls, such as a cellar or basement, because sound can be transmitted and amplified to other parts of your house.

So, what's the best way to stop this sound transmission having an impact on others? Soundproofing of course.


If you've got bare floors or floorboards, think about covering them with carpet or laying a few rugs to help reduce any vibrations and sound reflections. Such a straightforward solution can help to damp down any noise and spruce up the room at the same time. Curtains, and in particular substantial blackout types, can also subdue any noises from escaping or invading the area, economically and without requiring professional soundproofing.

Another cost-effective and do-it-yourself remedy is to plug any gaps or holes around windows, electrical sockets, door frames and light fittings. There are some special acoustic sealants available on the market that absorb the sound waves, and do not transmit them to the surrounding materials. Acoustic sealants can be a touch more pricey than normal sealant products, however the special design has far greater soundproofing performance and is certainly worth the small extra cost.

For those of you who are redecorating a room or renovating a property, consider the soundproofing properties of adding a supplementary skin of plasterboard or soundboard, (also called gypsum board, drywall or sheet rock), whilst you are undertaking the project. This is an economic and efficient soundproofing material due to its dense nature. It's effective if you are installing a cinema room, studio or home office in your property in Scarcliffe. If you are not experienced in putting up studding and plasterboard, it is wise to use a specialist Scarcliffe contractor to guarantee the best soundproofing benefits from its use.

Soundproofer Quotes in Scarcliffe Derbyshire

Last but not least you need to examine all doors in the rooms that you're soundproofing. Although hollow doors are light and fairly inexpensive, their soundproofing qualities aren't all that brilliant. If you are able to change to solid core doors you'll find it boosts your room's soundproofing more cheaply than some other alternatives.


If the level of sound is excessive in your area, due to aircraft flying over, or heavy traffic on a busy road for instance, then more substantial ways to deal with the excess noise may have to be explored. You will get the best possible soundproofing outcome by retaining the expertise of a certified soundproofing company.

The first questions you can expect to be asked are:

  1. Is it external sounds or internal noise that you wish to address? i.e. To suppress road noise, neighbours playing loud music or trains, or is it from internally produced sounds from a music studio or family room for instance.
  2. What space needs to be soundproofed? i.e. Is it a plasterboard partition room, a loft conversion, a concrete lined cellar or a brick walled room.
  3. What is the main area where the sound causes the most problems? i.e. Is it emanating from the walls, up through the floors, down from overhead or through windows, or is it a mix of all these factors.
  4. How large is the room you wish to have soundproofed?

Your answers to such questions will allow you to receive itemised quotes for the various available solutions to suit your requirements. There'll be distinct solutions for each of the key areas the room you want to soundproof.


There are 2 key areas that need to be dealt with to successfully soundproof any room:

  1. Lessen the effect of sound reflection, vibration and amplification by solid surfaces.
  2. The absorption of sound will need to be maximised.

An on-site survey will be required to pinpoint the elements that need to be improved.

Solutions from the survey will probably include the addition of materials with different masses and densities to help enhance the soundproofing attributes of the space. Soundproofing can be improved by the application of acoustic foam and rubber which will absorb sound waves and enhance and a room's sound quality.

The insulation between any voids will be improved or upgraded to reduce the sound resonation and amplification of these "sound boxes". If you think about a drum or wooden cajon, you are looking at a sound increasing void surrounded by a resonating material; basically what you may encounter inside ceiling and floor joists, or wall cavities.

It is better to use combined layers of different density materials to absorb unwelcome noises than a single layer made from one sort of soundproofing material. This is because different frequencies are affected by different materials, therefore a variety of shapes, densities and layers within your soundproofing armoury are needed.

Any soundproofing installer in Scarcliffe will have to comply with the Part E of the Building Regulations, if your property is residential in nature. This regulation has the objective of protecting neighbours in the area from the effects of sound pollution.

Trade organisations in the soundproofing industry who offer guidance, training and qualifications are the Association of Noise Consultants (ANC) and the Institute of Acoustics (IOA). A credible soundproofing company in Scarcliffe will have undergone a vetting procedure for the professionalism and quality of their work to have been accepted as a member of these organisations.

Soundproofing Underlay Scarcliffe

If you're experiencing lots of noise in your Scarcliffe home, a good way to lessen this without excessive disturbance is by installing some acoustic or soundproofing underlay on your floors. These can be used beneath vinyl planks, laminate, engineered wood or carpet floor coverings, and are designed for both wooden and concrete floors.

Essentially, acoustic underlay can be an especially helpful solution where your issue is for the most part impact noise and not an airborne noise problem. Impact noise tends to be a major problem for Scarcliffe property owners these days, with a rise in the popularity of hard floor finishes. The kind of noise problems that we are talking about here is kids stomping around, moving furniture and general foot traffic, in particular from upstairs rooms.

You shouldn't get soundproofing or acoustic underlay confused with regular carpet underlay, although some carpet retailers may try to palm you off with this claiming it has decent soundproofing qualities. If your noise problems are serious, be sure you invest in a quality soundproofing underlay from a respected vendor.

Whilst soundproofing underlay is mostly effective for dealing with impact noise, some are much better than others when facing airborne noise such as loud music, incessant talking and booming TV's. Accordingly, when picking a product it's vital to pinpoint the specific types of noise you're wanting to lower, and discuss this with your supplier or soundproofing specialist beforehand.
