10 Tips for easy home soundproofing


Seal Your Doors

A common issue we come across is sound from another room traveling right through the door.  If having a paper thin door isn't your issue, the problem may be the space around the door that sound is escaping through. Products like Audimute’s Door Seal Kit are extremely affordable and a simple fix to this issue. Within minutes you can stop sound from traveling through the spaces around your door.

 

Don't Slam Those Cupboards

This may sound obvious, but it is a common complaint we hear all the time. Over the years the bumpers on your cabinet doors start to wear. This is a $5 fix that only takes a few minutes of your time. Cabinet door bumpers can be purchased at most hardware stores. Simply peel and stick on the inside corners of your cabinet door and you won’t hear that loud wood on wood clatter that makes you cringe. 

My Pets Are Going CRAZY!

I could probably write another 10 tips on pet soundproofing, but here is the bottom line: your animals have sensitive ears. So intense sound bothers them even more than it does you. The echoing and intensity fires them up resulting in more and more chatter. Focus on adding sound absorbent materials to the rooms in which your pets spend the most time. This could be anything from a rug on hard floors to Acoustic Panels on the walls. You could even try a blanket or Acoustic Sheet over their cage. Some animals respond well to background noise, which helps to break up sound intensity. Personally, my dog likes listening to The Beagles…

New & Improved Sound Absorption Sheets

My Workout Space Is Too Loud!

Besides turning down the radio, here is what you can do to help control the sound. The key here is the floor. Same principle as the washer and dryer, you need to absorb that vibration. Whether you’re running on a treadmill or just slamming down those dumbbells, an isolation product is the perfect solution. You can find gym floor tiles at your local sporting good store. These will help, but for better results check out Audimute’s 6.4mm Peacemaker. It is less expensive and will give you the best results of any gym flooring product on the market.
