Before we can discover methods for eliminating sound pollution, it would be a good idea to understand precisely how sound travels.

Soundproofing Westbrook Cheshire (WA5)

There are only two ways in which sound can be transmitted around a room:

1. Through objects by the vibration of the material.

2. Through the air by vibration of air molecules.

As dolphin and whale songs can show, sound also penetrates long distance through water, but unless your aim is to soundproof a pool or aquarium we will look only at the strategies for soundproofing buildings and rooms.

SOUND TRAVELLING THROUGH THE AIR

If you check around the space to be soundproofed and discover gaps around doors, ill fitted windows, heating ducts and even electrical sockets and switches, these are all causes of sound transmission. All noise and sounds will create movement and vibration of the molecules in the air, and it is this that we identify and hear. All sounds travel through the air in this same way; it doesn't matter if it's heavy machinery, music, aircraft, nearby traffic or kids playing that generates the sound.

If you try and visualise your room as a bucket, you are trying to find any leaks to seal before you fill it up with liquid.

SOUND TRAVEL THROUGH OBJECTS AND STRUCTURES

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

However, how can these effects be stopped from creating an issue? The solution is not surprisingly, soundproofing!

BASIC STEPS IN SOUNDPROOFING

If you've got bare floorboards or floor surfaces, think about putting down a few rugs or cover with a carpet to help reduce any vibrations and sound reflections. Not only will such a simple and straightforward solution help to reduce your problem with noise, it can also jazz up the room. Wall coverings or window drapes can also be employed to enhance soundproofing and are simple to install and maintain.

Another economical and DIY resolution is to plug any holes around door frames, sockets, light fittings and windows. Sealing the gaps and holes with a professional acoustic sealant found in some DIY and building material shops, will make a big difference to how your room sounds. There could be a considerable difference in the price when compared to a normal sealant, but the soundproofing abilities are much better and will make a huge difference to a room's level of soundproofing.

For those of you redecorating a room or renovating a property, consider the soundproofing gains of adding an extra skin of soundboard or plasterboard, (also called sheet rock, drywall or gypsum board), whilst you are tackling the project. This is a dense type of board that is a perfect and economic soundproofing material. If you're putting in a study, home cinema or studio then plasterboard will help to minimise sound pollution for that room, and can be readily decorated after installation. If you aren't proficient in putting up plasterboard and framing, it is better to hire a specialist team to guarantee you the optimum soundproofing improvements from its use.

The last solution for DIY enthusiasts is to check out the doors in your property in Westbrook. Hollow doors are a comparatively cheap option but their soundproofing qualities are a far cry from the best. Solid doors, while a little bit more expensive, can have a significant effect on the soundproofing qualities of a room.

If the sound pollution is extreme in your area, on account of traffic noise from a busy road nearby, or aircraft flying over for example, then more serious methods to reduce the excess noise will have to be investigated. You will obtain the best soundproofing outcome by using the expertise of a skilled soundproofing specialist.

Soundproofer Near Westbrook Cheshire

The initial questions you will be asked are:

  1. What is the main spot where the noise causes the most problems? i.e. Is it coming down from above, up through the floors, through windows/doors or from the walls, or is it a combination of all factors.
  2. How big is the area that you wish to have soundproofed?
  3. Is it external noise or internal sounds that you wish to tackle? i.e. To cut out next door neighbours, traffic or overflying aircraft, or is it from internally created sounds from a music studio or family room for example.
  4. What is the space you wish to soundproof made from? (i.e. a brick wall, a stud partition wall or a lined concrete wall).

Your answers to such questions will enable you to receive itemised quotes for the different solutions available to suit your circumstances. There will be distinct remedies for each of the main key areas of the space that you want to soundproof.

PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING OF CEILINGS, FLOORS and WALLS

There are two areas that need to be dealt with to successfully soundproof any space:

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

A site survey will be needed to examine the aspects that need improving.

The team will work out ways to add materials with different masses and densities to improve the sound absorption of the area. This extra mass will include ways to improve absorption of the sound energy by means of acoustic rubber or foam to achieve the maximum noise reduction impacts.

Voids between joists might require insulation to remove resonation gaps between them. If you envision these spaces as similar to a drum or wooden cajon then you will see that by leaving floor or ceiling joist spaces and wall cavities open, you are creating a sound amplification area.

It's better to use combined layers of different densities to deaden unwelcome noises than a solitary layer fabricated from one material. This is due to the fact that the different material densities react better with varying frequencies and will deliver a much better overall resolution to your soundproofing exploits.

All soundproofing contractors in Westbrook need to follow the regulations for domestic buildings set down in the Building Regulations (Part E). This set of regulations is a requirement in law to protect your neighbours and yourself from the negative effects of sound pollution in a setting where people work and live.

Trade associations in the soundproofing industry that offer training, qualifications and advice are the Institute of Acoustics (IOA) and the Association of Noise Consultants (ANC). Only those Westbrook businesses that have been appraised and authorised by these trade bodies for quality, professionalism and reliability are permitted to bear the logo.

Soundproofing Foam Westbrook

It appears from doing some basic keyphrase research that one of the most popular searches on Google and Yahoo is for "soundproofing foam" and for householders in Westbrook, perhaps "soundproofing foam Westbrook". Now, this suggests that lots of householders in Westbrook are hunting for a solution to soundproof their properties, and are hoping that soundproofing foam will achieve this.

I don't wish to be the bearer of bad tidings, but soundproofing foam is not really a resolution for most noise pollution problems, and is most certainly not effective if you are hoping to filter out the din from your noisy neighbours in Westbrook.

The customary "egg box" style foam, that often seems to be the trademark of soundproofing, was not actually developed for stopping the transmission of noise, but has the purpose of reducing echoing and amplifying in music studios and comparable situations, where it can also enhance the sound clarity in a room. Soundproofing foam like this isn't good at preventing noise from travelling around your house, or stopping sound from passing through a party wall. Soundproofing foam is in fact porous and does not block sound, it absorbs it and permits sound to pass through it.

If however, you're creating a music studio, this may be a valuable product for you, and is available in different thicknesses (usually 25mm and 50mm), and in various sheet and tile sizes.

AMW (Acoustic Mineral Wool)

For you noise reduction needs in Westbrook, acoustic mineral wool (AMW) is one of the handiest materials for the soundproofing of houses or other buildings, and has various applications. Absorbing sound waves, enhancing acoustic performance and reducing reverberation, acoustic mineral wool is specifically designed to be installed in the cavity spaces of ceilings, walls and floors.

Acoustic Mineral Wool Westbrook

AMW normally comes in 600mm x 1200mm slabs and is readily available in 25mm, 50mm, 75mm and 100mm thicknesses. AMW is often made of recycled materials (around 20%), is chemically inert, and is non-combustible. It does not react with any materials or substances that it comes into contact with (i.e. brickwork, masonry, plastics, metal wall tiesetc), and doesn't encourage the development of fungi, mould or bacteria.

Widely used in the building industry for its thermal, acoustic and fire insulation properties, AMW is particularly effective as a sound absorbing infill when installed between flooring joists, stud partitioning and suspended ceilings. When it comes to separating floors and walls, and in order to adhere to Part E of the Building Regulations, acoustic mineral wool can be used along with other soundproofing products.

Acoustic Underlay Westbrook

If you want to lower the noise experienced in your home in Westbrook without causing excessive disturbance, you could think about installing some soundproofing underlay. These are okay for use beneath carpet, engineered wood, laminate or vinyl planks floor coverings, and are designed for both wood and concrete floors.

When there are problems with impact rather than airborne noise, soundproofing underlay is especially beneficial. The current use of hard floor surface finishes means that impact noise pollution has become a rising issue for property owners in Westbrook. This is especially problematic when coming from upstairs rooms, and the sort of noise issues that we are talking about here is moving furniture, general foot traffic and children stomping around.

Do not confuse normal carpet underlay with genuine acoustic or soundproofing underlay, because some unprincipled carpet suppliers may try to palm you off with such products, with claims that they are suitable. Make sure that you purchase a quality soundproofing underlay, if you have real noise problems.

While impact noise can be dramatically lowered through the use of acoustic underlay, it has varying degrees of success with regards to shouting, deafening music and booming TV's, and other airborne noises. So, before purchasing an underlay it's vital to understand the specific types of noise you're endeavouring to minimise, and discuss this with the soundproofing expert or supplier.
