A survey conducted by Mori has shown that nearly half of the UK’s population feels their life suffers due to noise when they are at home. This figure has risen 35 % since 2006 and 2% of people surveyed say they had moved house to escape noisy neighbours.

Noise Action Week (19 – 23rd May 2008) is co-ordinated by Environmental Protection UK the environmental protection charity supported by pollution control professionals. They have been working for a cleaner, quieter, healthier world since 1898. This year Noise Action Week is set to highlight street sounds as they are working in partnership with Walk to School, who are encouraging local travel co-ordinators to get kids out on the street as "Sound Detectives" during the week, sussing out sounds on their way to school.

Noise mediation is the preferred method of reducing unwanted neighbourhood noise but this does not always work or in some cases the complainant would rather soundproof their property.

Sound Service (Oxford) Ltd has been supplying D.I.Y domestic soundproofing materials and advice for nearly 40 years and their products are easy to install with little or no experience and provide effective soundproofing for floors, walls and ceilings as well as other common domestic noise problems.

Many people think that soundproofing is a costly and time consuming exercise when in fact you can treat most surfaces from as little as £30 per square metre.

Soundproofing increases the properties value and make it far more sellable if and when you want to move.
Sound Service offer a range of systems to treat all types of noise.

These include;
• Easy to install door kits to help stop noise passing through a door & frame.

• 20mm thick wall panels called M-20 which easily glue onto the walls to reduce neighbour noise by up to 75 %

• Acoustic Enclosure Kits to reduce vibrating pumps such as showers.

• Anti Vibration Pads to go under gym equipment and washing machines. These reduce the impact sound being transmitted through to the floor below.

• Versatile flooring solutions with minimal height rise.
