Before we can find ways in which to combat sound pollution, it will help if we understand precisely how sound travels and is transmitted.

Soundproofing Wetherby West Yorkshire (LS22)

Sound basically moves in two ways around a home:

1. Through the air by vibration of air molecules.

2. Through the vibration of objects or materials.

Sound can also be transmitted through water, but unless you're looking at soundproofing an aquarium or swimming pool we will simply focus on its isolation through materials and air.


Any ill fitted windows, gaps around doors, open air-ducting and even electrical sockets and switches can all be responsible for the transmission of sound outside or into a room. All noise vibrates the molecules in the air and these vibrations are what we pick up and hear as sound. All sounds travel through the air in this same way; it doesn't matter if it's music playing, kids playing, aeroplanes, heavy machinery or nearby traffic that produces the sound.

Any gaps in the room can be considered to be a leak and will have to be blocked.


Sound waves can additionally be absorbed by, reflected by or transferred to solid materials and structures. Sound will cause vibrations in the floors, ceilings and walls of your rooms, and may cause a resonation effect that is transmitted outside of the room itself. Care has to be taken with solid brick or concrete walls, such as in cellars, as sound can be reflected and sometimes even amplified to other parts of your house.

But, how can these effects be prevented from causing a problem? The answer is obviously, soundproofing!


If you have bare floors or floorboards, think about putting down a few rugs or cover with a carpet to help reduce any vibrations and sound reflections. Not only can such a simple and straightforward solution reduce your problem with noise, but it can also spruce up the room. Wall coverings or window drapes can also be used to enhance soundproofing and are simple to install.

Locating and plugging any gaps or holes in your rooms, think windows, light fittings, electrical sockets and door frames, is also an easy task for a competent DIY'er. There are special acoustic sealants available on the market that suppress the sound waves, and do not transfer them to the surrounding materials. They may be a little more pricey than normal plaster or sealants, but they are very useful for their soundproofing qualities.

If your room is an empty canvas and you are soundproofing as you decorate or renovate, consider installing a layer of plasterboard or soundboard, (also called drywall, gyproc or sheet rock). Plasterboard is a fairly dense material that is both economical and efficient for soundproofing a room. It's great if you're installing a cinema room, study or games room in your property in Wetherby. If you're not experienced in putting up studding and plasterboard, it is best to use a specialist Wetherby contractor to guarantee you the optimal soundproofing results from its installation.

One final simple soundproofing option is to check the materials your doors are made of. Hollow doors are relatively cheap but their soundproofing qualities are far from the best. Switching hollow core doors for solid core will boost the soundproofing properties of a room with only a minimal extra cost.


Some properties, for instance those on aircraft flight-paths or next to busy roads, have naturally more sound problems and will require other ways to solve the dilemma. This is when employing the services of a professional soundproofing service will deliver the best results.

The initial questions you should be asked are:

  1. Which is the main point where the noise creates the biggest issues? i.e. Is it emanating from the walls, down from above, up through the flooring or through doors/windows, or is it a mixture of all factors.
  2. Is it internal sounds or external noise that you wish to deal with? i.e. To lessen neighbours, traffic or aircraft, or is it from internally generated sounds from a teenagers bedroom or home cinema for instance.
  3. How large is the area you wish to have soundproofed?
  4. What area needs to be soundproofed? i.e. Is it a brick walled room, an attic conversion, a concrete lined basement or a stud partitioned room.

Your answers to these queries will enable you to get quotes for the various available solutions that match your requirements. They will offer different methods for soundproofing each of the troublesome areas within your room.


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

  1. Improve sound absorption.
  2. Reduce the effect of sound reflection, amplification and vibration by hard surfaces.

This requires an on-site survey to verify precisely what areas need improving from the present condition.

The installer will work out ways to add materials that have different masses and densities to boost the sound quality of the area. This extra mass will include ways to improve absorption of the sound energy through the use of acoustic foam or rubber to achieve the maximum noise reduction impacts.

The insulation between any voids will be upgraded to reduce the noise resonation and amplification of these sound boxes. Floor and ceiling voids and wall cavities can all be assimilated with a drum, where the space inside acts as an amplifying area for any unwanted noise.

Soundproofing is maximised if multiple layers of different density materials are used, as opposed to installing only one kind of material. This is because different frequencies are affected by different materials, therefore a variety of densities, layers and shapes within your soundproofing panels are needed.

Any soundproofing specialist in Wetherby must follow the Part E of the Building Regulations, if your property is residential in nature. These requirements must be followed in order to safeguard yourself and neighbours from the harmful effects of sound pollution.

Trade bodies in the soundproofing industry that offer qualifications, guidance and training are the Institute of Acoustics and the Association of Noise Consultants.
