Most of us will be well acquainted with noise pollution and the detrimental effects that it can have on environment and health. Consistent exposure to piercing sounds can lead to stress, sleep deprivation and fatigue, and in the worse case scenarios, loss of hearing.

 

 

One of the most commonly accepted resolutions of nuisance noise is to install some form of soundproofing to the environment. However, one of the most common misconceptions is that any old material will suffice. This is incorrect. Here are five costly mistakes to avoid when considering soundproofing your home or commercial premises.

 

Buying Any Soundproofing Material

 

Noise pollution can manifest in a wealth of different ways. In order to suitably combat the problem, it’s paramount that you have an understanding of the noise polluting your serenity. The simplest noise variable is the pitch. Other variables include the type of building material the sound is passing through, and whether the noise is continual or intermittent. Understanding the exact nature of the sound will allow you to effectively combat the sound.

 

Listening to Old Wives Tales

 

Many of us believe that mattresses, cardboard, fibreglass and rubber act as excellent sound absorbers. This is simply untrue. Just because you may have seen countless films and televisions programs with actors putting mattresses by a wall to block out sound doesn’t mean that it is effective. Only consider credible and scientifically-trusted methods to blocking out sound.

 

Double Glazing as the Only Solution

 

Whereas it cannot be denied that double glazing has strong noise cancelling properties, double glazing alone will not effectively solve any noise pollution problem. An additional few centimetres of glazing won’t cancel a drilling, or any other sound for that matter.

 

Not Following the Right Soundproofing Technique  

 

One of the most common mistakes consumers make is that they have the skills to provide superior soundproofing. An experienced soundproofing installation professional will be well-versed with the process, having spent a proportion of their working life erecting these solutions in all manner of commercial and residential environments.

 

These are just four mistakes to avoid when considering the best way to soundproof any environment. If you’d like to learn more, or have a requirement, don’t hesitate to contact us.
