Before we can discover methods for eliminating sound pollution, it will help if we understand precisely how sound travels.

Soundproofing Stanford-le-Hope Essex (SS17)

Sound can travel in a couple of ways:

1. The vibration or air molecules through the air.

2. By vibration of solid materials and objects.

As dolphin and whale songs can show, sound also penetrates long distance through water, however unless your intention is to soundproof an aquarium or pool we will just look at the methods of soundproofing rooms and buildings.


Sound can be transmitted into and out of a room through ill fitted windows, gaps around doors, heating ducts and even light fittings and electrical sockets. Any sound vibrates the air molecules and this vibration is what we hear and identify as sound. All sounds travel through the air in the same fashion; it doesn't matter if it's music playing, passing aircraft, heavy machinery, traffic or kids playing that produces the sound.

If you try to imagine your room as if it were a bucket, you're attempting to find any leaks to seal before you can fill it up with water.


Sound waves can also be reflected by, absorbed by or transferred to solid objects and structures. Sound will cause vibrations in the ceilings, walls and floors of your rooms, and may lead to a resonation effect that's transferred beyond the area. Even in a room that is encased in a dense material that is resistant against sound, such as a concrete cellar, the sound can sometimes be transmitted and perhaps even amplified to other areas of the property.

But, how can these effects be prevented from creating an issue? The answer is naturally, soundproofing!


A bare floor resonates more than one covered by a carpet or rug. Such a simple solution can help to damp down any noises and spruce up the room at the same time. Curtains, in particular heavy blackout styles, can also repress any noises from invading or escaping a room, cost-effectively and without requiring professional soundproofing.

Locating and plugging any holes or gaps around the rooms, think electrical sockets, light fittings, windows and door frames, is also a straightforward task for a skilled do-it-yourselfer. It is possible to buy professional acoustic sealants in some builders merchants which suppress the transmission of sound by suppressing it. There might be a considerable difference in price when compared with a standard sealant, but the soundproofing abilities are a lot better and will make a massive difference to a room's soundproofing.

If you are fortunate enough to be redecorating or renovating while considering your soundproofing, then look into installing an additional skin of plasterboard (also called gyproc, sheet rock or drywall). This is a fairly dense type of boarding which is a perfect and economic soundproofing material. It is perfect for areas like music studios, studies or home cinemas being built within your house in Stanford-le-Hope. If you do choose plasterboard to aid your soundproofing it is a good idea to use a specialist fitter in Stanford-le-Hope, to get the maximum possible effect from its installment.

The last do-it-yourself solution is to think about the doors in your property in Stanford-le-Hope. If you have hollow doors installed in your rooms you will discover that they can vibrate with any sound that is aimed at them. If you're able to change to solid wood doors you will find it boosts your room's soundproofing more cheaply than some other options.


If you reside in a high noise pollution area, such as next to a busy road or near an airport, you'll need to be more innovative in your efforts to enhance the soundproofing qualities of your property. This is an instance when the services of a professional soundproofing service will deliver the greatest results.

Soundproofer Near Stanford-le-Hope Essex

The first questions you can expect to be asked are:

  1. How big is the space requiring soundproofing?
  2. Which is the main area where the noise creates the biggest issues? i.e. Is it emanating through windows, down from overhead, from the walls or up through the flooring, or is it a combination of all these things.
  3. Is it internal sounds or external noise that you would like to target? i.e. To reduce noisy neighbours, traffic or trains, or is it from internally created sounds from a music room or home cinema for example.
  4. What kind of area or room do you need to soundproof? Does it have a plasterboarded partition wall, a brick wall or a fully lined concrete wall etc.

With answers to these questions a good quality soundproofing installer in Stanford-le-Hope will provide you with solutions to suit your circumstances, and just as important, your budget. There'll be different solutions for each of the key areas the room that you want to soundproof.


There are 2 areas that need to be addressed to soundproof any space:

  1. Cut down on the effects on the way sound is transmitted through and reflected by solid surfaces.
  2. Sound absorption will need to be enhanced.

An on-site survey will be needed to pinpoint the aspects that need improving.

Solutions identified by the survey will probably include adding some materials with different masses and densities to help increase the soundproofing capabilities of the room. Soundproofing will be enhanced by the addition of acoustic foam and rubber which absorbs excess noise and improves and the sound quality of a room.

Any uninsulated voids in the area might require some sort of deadening material to be placed between them to lessen noise resonation. Floor and ceiling voids and wall cavities can all be likened to a drum, where the space inside acts as an amplifying area for unwelcome sounds.

Soundproofing is enhanced if different densities and materials are utilised, as opposed to installing a single kind of material. The different materials will reduce different sound frequencies and deliver a more balanced auditory experience and feeling to a room.

Part E of the Building Regulations deal with the soundproofing of domestic properties, and will need to be adhered to by any soundproofing specialist in Stanford-le-Hope.

Soundproofing Foam Stanford-le-Hope

After conducting some elementary keyphrase research, it seems that one of the most commonly searched for terms on Google and Bing is for "soundproofing foam" and for householders in Stanford-le-Hope, perhaps "soundproofing foam Stanford-le-Hope". This is rather puzzling, because it would suggest a basic lack of awareness by local householders who seem to be of the opinion that their noise problems can be solved with acoustic foam products.

It's not a case of me trying to rain on anyone's parade, but the truth is that this type of product is not likely to be the answer to your prayers, and will certainly not block out the din caused by noisy neighbours in Stanford-le-Hope.

Stopping the transmission of noise is not the function of this familiar "egg box" style foam, which was actually designed for use in music studios and comparable situations, where it can enhance the sound clarity in a room, and reduce amplification, reverberation and echoing. Acoustic foam of this sort isn't good at preventing sound from moving around your property, or preventing noise from penetrating a wall. As opposed to stopping it, soundproofing foam actually allows sound to pass through it, because it is in fact porous.

If however, you are creating a music studio, this might be a handy product for you to use, and is available in different thicknesses (usually 25 millimetre and 50 millimetre), and in various tile and sheet sizes.

Acoustic Mineral Wool

One of the most useful products on the market for the soundproofing of houses in Stanford-le-Hope, AMW (or acoustic mineral wool) has a number of applications for your sound absorption needs. When placed in the cavity spaces of floors, walls and ceilings, acoustic mineral wool is specifically designed to absorb sound waves, dampen vibrations and enhance acoustic performance.

Acoustic Mineral Wool Stanford-le-Hope

Acoustic mineral wool usually comes in 600mm x 1200mm "slabs" and is available in thicknesses of 25mm, 50mm, 75mm and 100mm. Acoustic mineral wool is safe for use in your house in Stanford-le-Hope, as it has an inert chemical composition and is non-flammable, it is also friendly to the environment being partly made using recycled materials. It does not react with any materials or substances that it comes into contact with (i.e. metal wall ties, masonry, brickwork, plastics), and doesn't encourage the growth of bacteria, mould or fungi.

Particularly effective as a sound absorption filler when installed between floor joists, suspended ceilings and stud partitioning, acoustic mineral wool is widely used in the building sector for fire, thermal and acoustic insulation. In relation to separating floors and walls, and so as to abide by The Building Regulations (Part E), AMW can be used in partnership with other soundproofing products.

Soundproofing or Acoustic Underlay Stanford-le-Hope

One of the least disruptive techniques for adding some soundproofing to your Stanford-le-Hope property is through the installation of soundproofing or acoustic underlays. These can be used under laminate, carpet, engineered wood or vinyl planks floor coverings, and are suitable for both wood and concrete floors.

Essentially, acoustic underlay can be a particularly beneficial solution where your problem is not so much airborne noise but primarily an impact noise issue. The more widespread use of hard floor finishing products means that impact noise pollution is becoming an increasing issue for property owners in Stanford-le-Hope. Rooms upstairs are the main source of such issues, with children running around, general footfall and shifting furniture being frequent concerns.

You should not confuse acoustic underlay with standard carpet underlay, although some unscrupulous carpet companies may attempt to palm you off with this claiming it has decent soundproofing qualities. If you're encountering severe noise issues in your property in Stanford-le-Hope, visit a professional supplier and purchase a decent soundproofing underlay that is appropriate for your specific situation.

While it is a valuable product for impact noise, acoustic underlay has varying degrees of success when it comes to reducing airborne noise issues like loud music, incessant talking and blaring TV's, and some products are certainly much better than others. Discussing the specific kinds of noise you are hoping to minimise with the supplier or soundproofing expert is important, and this should enable you to choose the correct product for your requirements.
