Soundproofing Your Home and Office

It is always worth spending an extra amount of money for a soundproof or noise control construction project in your home and office, especially within the rooms, which could make them more user-friendly and it may also increase the value of the buildings.

Noise can cause major disturbance to anyone. Not only does noise affect your peace of mind, it actually reduces your work efficiency, degrades performance, keeps you awake at night and causes distraction in the day, making you loose your sleep and hence affecting your health.

Understanding the principle of sound can help improve the effectiveness of your noise control project. As you can see, sound is produced from the reverberation of air, so you should actually deaden the air or stop the air from moving in order to cease the noise. If this cannot be done, you can at least reduce the speed of air travelling through to lessen the noise.

Sound barrier is one of the most commonly used noise control products for effective soundproofing. Sound barriers are usually made of nonporous materials, which means they are mostly sturdy and solid objects. Some of the examples of such barriers include wood, drywall, acoustic panels, plaster wall concrete.

Alternately, noise can also be dampened using passive absorption methods. Unlike a sound barrier which blocks away sounds , the sound wave is dissipated during the process in which it passes through an absorbent material such as an acoustical convoluted foam or mat.
