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 (18 – 22nd May 2009) 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. For more info on Noise Action Week please go to

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 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 and can be considered a home improvement similar to double glazing.

“This year we are celebrating our 40th year supplying high quality effective soundproofing products to homeowners around the UK. Due to popular demand we have now created a range of simple systems designed to be installed by anyone with basic D.I.Y knowledge.” Describes Stephen Young, the companies Technical Manager.

Over 50% of their products are made from sustainable materials or 100% recycled rubber. With just two of these products Sound Service has managed to recycle 146,940 rubber car tyres which equates to 1,634 tons of rubber.
Sound Service offer a range of systems to treat all types of noise. These include;

• Easy to install doorseal kits to help reduce noise passing through a door & frame.

• 20mm thick wall panels called M20 which easily glue onto the walls to reduce normal 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 and many other noisy, vibrating machines. These reduce the structure borne sound being transmitted through to floors below and other rooms.

• Versatile flooring solutions with minimal height rise.
