Before we are able to find methods for countering sound pollution, it might help if we understand exactly how sound travels.

Soundproofing Walton-on-Thames Surrey (KT12)

There are only two ways by which sound can travel around a room:

1. Through objects by the vibration of the material.

2. Through the air by vibration of air molecules.

Despite the fact that sound can also travel through liquids, unless you're wanting to isolate noises from an aquarium or swimming pool, we'll only be concerned with how to reduce sound transmission in the rooms of a structure.

SOUND TRAVELLING THROUGH THE AIR

Any ill fitted windows, gaps around doors, heating ducts and even light fittings and electrical sockets can all be responsible for the transmission of sound into or outside a room. All sounds and noise will create the vibration and movement of the molecules in the air, and this is what we hear. No matter what the source of the sound; music, aeroplanes, heavy machinery, road traffic or children playing, all sounds are created and transmitted in exactly the same way.

If you try and visualise your room as a bucket, you are trying to identify any leaks that need sealing before you fill it with liquid.

SOUND TRAVEL THROUGH OBJECTS AND STRUCTURES

We now understand that sounds are merely the vibration of air reaching the ear, but that vibration is also reflected by or transferred to solid objects. Sound can be transmitted around a dwelling from its original source by the vibration of ceilings, walls and floors. Even a solid concrete room, such as a cellar, can create a path of resonance which transports sound waves, and sometimes amplify them, to other rooms in a property.

How should we prevent these sounds and vibrations affecting other folks? Soundproofing is the solution.

SIMPLE STEPS IN SOUNDPROOFING

If you've got bare floorboards or floors, think about covering them with carpet or putting down a few rugs to help in reducing any sound reflections and vibrations. These soft coverings will help to soak up sounds but can also add a bit of elegance to an otherwise bare room. Window drapes and wall coverings can also be employed to enhance soundproofing and are simple to install and maintain.

Locating and stopping up any holes or gaps in your room, think windows, sockets, light fittings and door frames, is also a straightforward job for a skilled DIY'er. There are some unique acoustic sealants available to buy that absorb the sound waves, and do not transmit them to the surrounding materials. There could be a considerable difference in price in comparison with a standard sealant, however the soundproofing capabilities are significantly better and will make a big difference to a room's level of soundproofing.

If your room is a blank canvas and you're doing the soundproofing while you renovate or decorate, consider installing a layer of soundboard or plasterboard, (also called sheet rock, drywall or gypsum board). This is an economic and efficient soundproofing material owing to its dense nature. It's excellent for areas like home cinemas, studies or studios being built within your house in Walton-on-Thames. It is wise to hire a specialist contractor near you to fit the plasterboard unless you've got some experience in this kind of work.

One final simple soundproofing solution is to check the materials from which your doors are made. Hollow doors are comparatively cheap although their soundproofing qualities are far from ideal. Changing hollow core doors for solid core will substantially improve the soundproofing of an area with only a little more cost.

Expect to answer the following four questions during an initial analysis of your soundproofing requirements:

  1. What sounds or noise are you trying to eliminate? i.e. External issues such as traffic noise, trains, neighbours playing loud music etc, or sounds inside your home from a music studio or home cinema.
  2. How big is the space requiring soundproofing?
  3. What area needs soundproofing? i.e. Is it a brick walled room, a plasterboard partition room, a loft conversion or a concrete lined cellar.
  4. Exactly where is the primary source of the noise emanating from? i.e. Above, through the ceiling, doors, windows, floor or walls, or a combination of everything.

  1. Sound absorption needs to be maximised.
  2. Reduce the ways that sound is transmitted through and reflected by solid surfaces.

Any voids in the area might require some form of deadening material to be inserted between them to lessen sound resonation. Wall cavities or flooring and ceiling voids can all be assimilated with a drum, where the space acts as an amplifying area for any unwelcome sounds.

Combined layers of differing density and mass materials do a better job of absorbing sound than a single soundproofing material layer of one kind. This is due to the fact that different frequencies are affected by different kinds of materials, therefore a variety of densities, shapes and layers within your soundproofing panels are needed.
