A home is a haven of peace and tranquillity, away from the unpredictability of the outside world. A normal day today can always turn sour in the blink of an eye. Where do you go to, to find that safe and secure space for you to ‘bounce back’? Home is not only confined to individual space. A happy family living together is also a representation of where ‘home’ is, regardless of time and place. So, what would you do if your peaceful space is disturbed?
Noise is one large element of disturbance that can negatively affect everyone in a particular household. Some noises can be turned off by yourself, while others come from external sources that you are incapable of avoiding altogether. These tend to lead to unnecessary conflicts, either between interpersonal relationships in the house or with the uncomfortable neighbour next door. Hence, here are 5 reasons why you should install soundproof or sound absorptive materials to avoid these unwanted circumstances:
At home, the time and space provided is considered sacred for you to spend with the family. During any other normal day, family time is scarce and limited due to work, school and other daily commitments. Thus, any free time with your loved ones are precious moments to be shared with together. Soundproofing your home ensures that your family space is protected and undisturbed. No individual will ever be content, without a happy family.
2) Health and well-being
It is scientifically proven that excessive exposure to certain noise levels may actually result in serious health conditions! Upon sound levels reaching above measurements of 85 decibels, our health may be adversely affected leading to impaired hearing, hypertension and increase in stress levels. Furthermore, there are already rules and regulations pertaining to sound and noise pollution in certain parts of the globe. In the United Kingdom, noise regulations are strictly abided to the Anti-Social Behaviour (Scotland) Act which has led to various additions to acoustic aspects in many environments, numerous notices and confiscations of equipment.
After a long day at work, nothing comes to mind more than to have a peaceful and quiet rest. That space where you spend your moments to relax and clear the mind is very crucial to maintaining good stress levels. However, uncontrolled noise pollution can disrupt the much needed rest that your body needs. Furthermore, the body requires a minimum of 6-8 hours of undisturbed and tranquil rest daily (dependant on age) to be optimally productive for the next day ahead. Ensuring good soundproofing, sound cancellation or reduction, particularly in the areas you rest in, will maximise the quality of your rest periods.
Musical practitioners require countless hours of training in their pursuit of a professional career. Students attending musical schools also require the same space for practice sessions within a week. Absorbing or eliminating as much sound in your home provides the ideal environment to work hard during those practice sessions without disrupting other people’s peace and space. This also provides an area where group discussions as well as speech training can be performed without disturbing any nearby neighbours.
5) Office work
Working at home provides the flexibility that most other office workers do not have. Nevertheless, the amount of focus as well as uninterrupted sessions needed do not vary much from office work too. Working in a space where your mind can be fully utilised towards the job at hand without interruptions becomes obligatory in producing quality work as well as reducing stress levels. By eliminating noise disruptions, you are capable of providing more towards completing your tasks and duties ahead.
These 5 simple reasons provide sound arguments that soundproofing, or at least reducing the level of unwanted sound in your home is very beneficial to you and your household. By providing this, you will continue to protect the interests of your family at home and improve their overall quality of life for the coming times ahead.
