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

As whale and dolphin song shows, sound also penetrates long distance through water, however unless you wish to soundproof an aquarium or swimming pool we'll look only at the techniques of soundproofing rooms and buildings.


If you take a good look at your area to be soundproofed and notice ill fitting windows, open air-ducting, gaps around doors and even light fittings and electrical sockets, these are all aspects that can cause the transmission of sound. What we hear as sound is really the vibration of air molecules being picked up by our ear drums. No matter what the source of the noise; children playing, music playing, nearby traffic, aircraft or machinery, all sound is created and transferred in precisely the same manner.

Any openings in a room can be viewed as leaks and will need to be plugged.


Sound waves can additionally be reflected by, absorbed by or transferred to solid objects and structures. Sound can be transferred around a dwelling from its original source through the vibration of floors, ceilings and walls. Care must be taken with brick or solid concrete walls, such as in cellars or basements, because sound can be reflected and amplified to other rooms in your home.

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


Give some thought to covering a bare floor, which reflects and resonates sound, with a carpet or rug. Such a simple solution can help to damp down any noises and spruce up the room to boot. Hanging wall coverings and curtains can also suppress sound vibrations and reflections through windows and walls without the need to hire a professional team of soundproofing specialists.

Another inexpensive and do-it-yourself solution is to plug any gaps or holes around door frames, light fittings, windows and sockets. It is possible to purchase specialist acoustic sealants in many builders merchants that repress the transmission of sound by suppressing the sound waves. They may be a bit more expensive than normal plaster or sealants, but are worth every penny for their soundproofing efficiency.

For anybody redecorating a room or renovating a property, look at the soundproofing benefits of adding an extra skin of plasterboard or soundboard, (also called drywall, gyproc or sheet rock), whilst you are undertaking this project. This is a relatively dense board that's an economic and useful soundproofing material. If you're fitting a movie room, games room or home office then plasterboard will help to minimise sound pollution for that room, and can be decorated easily after installment. If you do decide to use plasterboard to help with your soundproofing exploits it is a good idea to employ a specialist fitter in Soham, to get the maximum effect from its installation.

Voids between joists may need insulating to remove resonation gaps between them. Floor and ceiling voids and cavities in walls can all be likened to a drum, where the space inside acts like an amplification source for undesirable noise.

It is better to use mixed layers of different density materials to soak up unwanted noises than a solitary layer made of one sort of material. This is due to the fact that the various frequencies are absorbed differently by different kinds of materials, therefore a range of layers, shapes and densities within your soundproofing armoury are required.

Soundproofing Foam Soham

After undertaking some elementary keyword research, it it would seem to be the case that one of the most commonly searched for terms on Google and Yahoo is for "soundproofing foam" and for home owners in Soham, something akin to "soundproofing foam Soham". This is rather confusing, as it implies a lack of understanding by local homeowners who seem to be of the belief that their noise problems can be solved through the use of soundproofing foam.

The last thing I am looking to do is spoil anyone's day, but if you're convinced that the racket from your noisy neighbours in Soham can be blocked out with this sort of product, then you are on the wrong track.

The customary "egg box" style foam, that often seems to be the trademark of soundproofing, isn't actually designed for stopping the transmission of noise, but has the purpose of reducing echoing and amplifying in music studios and similar situations, where it can also improve the acoustic performance of a room. This product isn't effective for stopping noise from penetrating a wall from a neighbouring property, or even to stop sound from travelling around your property and being a nuisance. Acoustic foam is in fact porous and doesn't block noise, it absorbs it and allows sound to pass through it.

This foam might however be useful for you if you are creating a music room in your home in Soham, and if this is the case you will find that it is available in different sheet sizes and thicknesses.
