It is crucial for us to understand how sound travels and is transmitted around a structure before it is possible to find techniques to prevent it from happening.

Soundproofing Wallingford Oxfordshire (OX10)

Sound is able to move in two different ways:

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

2. In open spaces by movement of air.

As dolphin and whale song demonstrates, sound also travels through water, but unless your intention is to soundproof a pool or aquarium we will just look at the techniques of soundproofing rooms and structures.

SOUND TRAVEL THROUGH THE AIR

If you take a good look at your area to be soundproofed and discover open air-ducting, gaps around doors, ill fitted windows and even electrical switches and sockets, these are all aspects that can cause the transmission of sound. What we hear and identify as sound is actually the vibration of air molecules being picked up by our ear drums. It doesn't matter whether it's music playing, kids playing, busy traffic, aeroplanes or heavy machinery, they all create and transfer sound in the same manner.

Any openings within a room can be regarded as leaks and will need to be plugged.

SOUND TRAVELLING THROUGH STRUCTURES AND OBJECTS

We know that sounds are simply the vibration of air being processed by the ear, but that vibration is also transferred to solid objects. Sound can be transported around a building from its source through the vibration of floors, walls and ceilings. Even a room made of solid concrete, such as a basement, can create a path of resonance which transmits any sound waves, and sometimes amplify them, to other rooms in a property.

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

BASIC SOUNDPROOFING STEPS

A bare floor surface is more resonant than one covered by a rug or carpet. Such a simple solution can help to damp down any noise and enhance the room to boot. Hanging curtains and wall coverings can also avoid sound vibrations and reflections through windows and walls without the need to bring in a team of professional soundproofers.

Locating and plugging any holes or gaps in your rooms, think light fittings, sockets, doors and windows, is also a simple job for a capable DIY'er. There are special acoustic sealants available to buy which absorb the sound waves, and don't transfer them to the surrounding materials. Acoustic sealants are inclined to be a little more expensive than standard sealant products, however the special design has far greater soundproofing performance and is worth the additional cost.

If the room you are working on is an empty canvas and you're soundproofing while you decorate or renovate, look at putting up another layer of soundboard or plasterboard, (also known as sheet rock, gyproc or drywall). This is a dense type of board that's an economic and useful soundproofing material. It's effective for spaces like studies, music studios or home cinemas being built within your home in Wallingford. If you're not familiar with putting up studding and plasterboard, it is generally advisable to employ a specialist Wallingford contractor to guarantee you the optimal soundproofing benefits from its installation.

The final DIY solution is to consider the doors within your home in Wallingford. Hollow doors are a relatively cheap option but their soundproofing qualities are far from the best. Solid wood doors, whilst a bit more pricey, can do wonders for soundproofing a room.

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

  1. Sound absorption needs to be increased.
  2. Reduce the effect of sound reflection, amplification and vibration by hard surfaces.

To effectively assess the elements that need to be improved, an on-site survey must be conducted by a local soundproofing company.

The installer will look at ways to add materials with different masses and densities to improve the sound absorption of the room. Soundproofing can be improved by the installation of acoustic rubber and foam which absorbs sound waves and enhances and the sound quality of a room.

Insulation between any voids will be improved to reduce the noise resonation and amplification of these "sound boxes". Wall cavities or flooring and ceiling voids can all be likened to a drum, where the space inside acts as an amplifying area for any undesirable sounds.

It is far better to use combined layers of different densities to soak up undesired sounds than a solitary layer fabricated from one kind of material. This is due to the fact that different frequencies are affected by different materials, therefore a range of densities, shapes and layers within your soundproofing armoury are needed.

Any soundproofing specialist in Wallingford will need to conform to the the Building Regulations (Part E), if dealing with a domestic property. These legislation should be followed so as to safeguard yourself and neighbours from the harmful effects of sound pollution.
