Initially we need to get our heads around just how sound travels and is transmitted before we can identify ways to combat any excessive noise intruding into or escaping from your home.

Soundproofing Sittingbourne Kent (ME9)

Sound can travel in a couple of ways:

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

2. Through the air by vibration of air molecules.

Sound also travels through water, but unless you're planning to soundproof a pool or aquarium we will simply concern ourselves with the isolation through materials and air.

SOUND TRAVELLING THROUGH THE AIR

If you glance around the space to be soundproofed and notice open air-ducting, ill fitted windows, gaps around doors and even electrical sockets and light fittings, these are all aspects that can cause the transmission of sound. All noise and sounds will create the vibration and movement of the molecules in the air, and this is what we hear. It matters not if it's busy traffic, machinery, children playing, music playing or aeroplanes, they all create and transmit sound in the same manner.

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

SOUND THROUGH OBJECTS AND STRUCTURES

Sound waves can also be absorbed by, reflected by or transferred to solid materials and structures. Sound can be transferred around a building from its original source via the vibration of walls, ceilings and floors. Care must be taken with solid brick or concrete walls, such as a cellar or basement, because sound can be reflected and amplified to other areas of your property.

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

BASIC STEPS IN SOUNDPROOFING

A bare floor resonates more than one covered by a carpet or rug. Not only will such a simple solution help to reduce your noise problem, it can also jazz up the room. Curtains, in particular heavy blackout styles, will also suppress any sounds from invading or escaping the area, economically and without requiring professional installation.

Another economical and do-it-yourself solution is to plug any holes around light fittings, windows, doors and sockets. Stopping up the holes and gaps with a professional acoustic sealant that can be purchased in some DIY stores and builders merchants, can make a big difference to how your room sounds. There may be a little difference in price in comparison with a standard sealant, however the soundproofing abilities are significantly better and can make a big difference to a room's soundproofing.

If you're luckily enough to be renovating or redecorating while dealing with your soundproofing, then think about installing an additional skin of plasterboard (also called gyproc, drywall or sheet rock). This is an efficient and economical soundproofing material due to its dense nature. It is effective for areas like home cinemas, home offices or studios being built within your house in Sittingbourne. If you do choose plasterboard to aid your soundproofing exploits it is wise to bring in a specialist fitter in Sittingbourne, to achieve the maximum possible benefit from its installation.

PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING OF FLOORS, CEILINGS and WALLS

To soundproof any sort of room requires two key approaches:

  1. Minimise sound the resonating and amplification of sound.
  2. Increase sound absorption.

An on-site survey will be necessary to examine the areas that need to be improved.

A professional soundproofing company will evaluate the different ways to add density and mass to the trouble spots. The use of acoustic foams and rubbers of different mass and density will help in absorbing sounds and reduce transmission and reflection sources.

Any noticeable voids in the room may need some type of deadening material to be placed between them to lessen sound resonation. If you think about a drum or wooden cajon, you are looking at a noise amplifying void surrounded by a resonating material; essentially what you might find within floor and ceiling joists, or cavities in walls.

Soundproofing abilities are enhanced if multiple layers of different density materials are utilised, as opposed to installing only one sort of material. This is because the various frequencies are absorbed differently by different types of materials, therefore a variety of layers, shapes and densities within your soundproofing armoury are needed.

Any soundproofing contractor in Sittingbourne will need to abide by the the Building Regulations (Part E), if your property is residential in nature. This set of regulations is a legally binding requirement to protect yourself and neighbours from being affected by sound pollution in an area where folks work and live.

The Institute of Acoustics (IOA) and the Association of Noise Consultants (ANC) are recognised trade organisations who provide qualifications and training, and are representative of the best in companies and contractors which offer soundproofing solutions. Only those Sittingbourne firms that have been appraised and approved by these trade associations for professionalism, reliability and quality are allowed to display the logo.

Soundproofing Foam Sittingbourne

After carrying out some basic keyphrase research, it looks like one of the most commonplace searches on Google and other search engines is for "soundproofing foam" and for home owners in Sittingbourne, maybe "soundproofing foam Sittingbourne". This is rather confusing, as it indicates a basic lack of awareness by local property owners who seem to be under the impression that their noise pollution problems can be resolved through the use of acoustic foam.

I'm not trying to spoil your day, but the truth is that this sort of product is not likely to be the magic formula you're searching for, and will certainly not eliminate the racket caused by your noisy neighbours in Sittingbourne.

The familiar "egg box" shaped foam, that seems to be the hallmark of soundproofing, isn't actually designed for stopping the transmission of noise, but has the purpose of reducing reverberation and echoing in music studios and comparable situations, where it can also enhance the sound clarity in a room. This kind of acoustic foam is not efficient at stopping sound from passing through a party wall or preventing noise from moving around your house. Because acoustic foam is spongy and porous, it actually permits sound to pass right through it, and has not got the consistency to block it.

It might be that you're actually building a music studio in your property in Sittingbourne, in which instance this foam may be extremely useful for you.

Acoustic Mineral Wool

One of the most useful materials available for the soundproofing of homes and buildings in Sittingbourne, AMW (otherwise known as acoustic mineral wool) has several applications for your noise reduction needs. Acoustic mineral wool is specifically designed to be installed in the cavity spaces of ceilings, floors and walls, to absorb airborne sound, improve acoustic performance and dampen vibrations.

Acoustic Mineral Wool Sittingbourne

Widely available in thicknesses of 25 millimetres, 50 millimetres, 75 millimetres and 100 millimetres, AMW typically comes in 600mm x 1200mm slabs. Acoustic mineral wool is safe to use in your home in Sittingbourne, as it is chemically inert and and is non-flammable, it is also environmentally-friendly being made, in some part, from recycled materials. It is rare for bacteria, mould or fungi to be found growing in acoustic mineral wool, and it doesn't have a reaction with brickwork, plastics, metal wall ties, masonry, or other materials or substances that it comes into close contact with.

Acoustic mineral wool is notably effective as a sound absorbing filler when installed in the spaces between floor joists, suspended ceilings and stud partitioning, and is widely recognised in the building industry for acoustic, thermal and fire insulation. In relation to separating walls and floors, and so as to conform to Part E of the Building Regulations, acoustic mineral wool can be used along with other acoustic products.
