Before we can identify techniques for countering sound pollution, we need to understand just how sound travels and is transmitted.

Soundproofing Yaxley Cambridgeshire (PE7)

Sound can move in two different ways:

1. By vibration of solid materials and structures.

2. In open spaces by movement of air.

Despite the fact that sound also travels through water, unless you're wanting to eliminate sounds from a swimming pool or aquarium, we will just be interested in how to soundproof rooms within a building.


Any open ducting, gaps around doors, single glazed windows and even electrical switches and sockets can all be responsible for the transmission of sound into or outside a room. What we hear as sound is basically air molucules being vibrated and reaching our ear drums. It matters not whether it's passing aircraft, children playing, music playing, machinery or traffic, they all produce and transfer sound in the same way.

If you try and visualise your room as if it were a bucket, and you're attempting to identify any leaks to seal before you can fill it with liquid.


We now appreciate that sound is merely the vibration of air being processed by the ear, but that vibration is also absorbed by solid objects. The ceilings, walls and floors will all affect how sound travels around a room, and can even transfer those vibrations to other areas of a property. Even a room made from solid concrete, such as a basement, can create a path of resonance which channels sound waves, and sometimes amplify them, to other rooms in a dwelling.

So, what is the best way to stop these vibrations from affecting other people? Soundproofing of course.


Think about covering a bare floor, which reflects and resonates sound, with a rug or carpet. Such a simple and straightforward solution can help to damp down any noise and enhance the room to boot. Hanging wall coverings and curtains can also damp down sound reflections and vibrations through windows and walls without the need for a team of professional soundproofing specialists.

Track down areas in the room where sound can come in or escape from; light fittings, sockets, doors and windows, and close off any gaps. There are unique acoustic sealants available to buy that absorb the sound waves, and do not transmit them to the surrounding materials. There will be a little difference in the price when compared with a regular sealant, but the soundproofing abilities are a lot better and will make a massive difference to a room's soundproofing.

For anybody redecorating a room or renovating a property, look at the soundproofing gains of adding another skin of plasterboard or soundboard, (also called drywall, gypsum board or sheet rock), while you are carrying out the project. This is an efficient and economical soundproofing material owing to its dense nature. It is perfect for spaces like movie rooms, home offices or studios being built within your house in Yaxley. If you do choose plasterboard to aid your soundproofing it is advisable to hire a specialist fitter in Yaxley, to achieve the maximum possible benefit from its installment.

One final simple soundproofing solution is to examine the materials from which your doors are made. Even though hollow doors are lightweight and comparatively cheap, their soundproofing qualities are not anything to write home about. Solid core doors, while a little more expensive, can do wonders for soundproofing a room.


If you live in a high noise pollution location, such as next to a busy road or near an airport, you will need to be more inventive in your attempts to increase the soundproofing qualities of your home. You'll get the most effective soundproofing results by employing the services of a skilled soundproofing company.

Voids between joists may require insulation to eliminate resonation gaps between them. Floor and ceiling voids and cavities in walls can all be assimilated with a drum, where the space acts as an amplifying area for any unwanted sounds.

It is far better to use combined layers of different densities to deaden unwanted sounds than a solitary layer made of one material. This is due to the fact that different materials react better with varying frequencies and will deliver a better resolution to your soundproofing project.

The Building Regulations (Part E) regulate the soundproofing of residential properties, and must be observed by any installation company in Yaxley. This regulation has the objective of protecting other residents in the area from the impact of noise pollution.

Soundproofing Foam Yaxley

I was intrigued to discover just recently that a common search term typed into Google was "soundproofing foam", and for local searches "soundproofing foam Yaxley" and "acoustical foam Yaxley". This is rather confusing, because it indicates a basic lack of awareness by local householders who seem to be under the impression that their noise issues can be fixed with soundproofing foam products.

The last thing I want to do is rain on your parade, but if you are assuming that the din from your noisy neighbours in Yaxley can be reduced with this type of product, then you are some way off the mark.

The familiar "egg box" shaped foam, that appears to be the trademark of soundproofing, isn't actually designed for stopping the transmission of noise, but is meant for the reduction of echoing and amplifying in music studios and comparable surroundings, where it can also enhance the sound clarity in a room. It is not the right product stopping noise from travelling freely around your house, or preventing sound from passing through the wall of a neighbouring property. Since it's porous, soundproofing foam absorbs sound and allows sound to pass through it, rather than blocking it.

If however, you happen to have a music studio, this could be a valuable product for you, and can be found in different thicknesses (usually 25 millimetre and 50 millimetre), and in various sheet and tile sizes.

AMW (Acoustic Mineral Wool)

AMW (otherwise known as acoustic mineral wool) is one of the handiest products for the soundproofing of properties in Yaxley and has a number of different applications for your sound absorption requirements. Specifically designed to be installed in the cavity spaces of walls, ceilings and floors, acoustic mineral wool is effective in enhancing acoustic performance, absorbing sound waves and dampening vibrations.

Acoustic Mineral Wool Yaxley

Widely available in 25mm, 50mm, 75mm and 100mm thicknesses, acoustic mineral wool normally comes in 600mm x 1200mm "slabs". Chemically inert and non-combustible, AMW is often made out of recycled materials (approximately 20%). It does not react with any materials that it comes into close contact with (i.e. masonry, metal wall ties, plastics, brickworketc), and does not encourage the development of fungi, mould or bacteria.

Widely recognised in the construction sector for its acoustic, fire and thermal insulation properties, AMW is notably effective as a sound absorption filler when installed in the spaces between suspended ceilings, stud partitioning and floor joists. With regards to separating floors and walls, and in order to comply with The Building Regulations (Part E), AMW can be used along with other acoustic solutions.
