If you are hearing that annoying sound and you finally decide to do something with it, then there are several things that you should know.
Namely, most of the people rush into decisions of spending a lot of money for soundproofing without even checking the real problem.
Most of the time, the very problem can be a hole in the wall. Yes, you heard it! The tiniest hole can obstruct your sleep just like that.
When my family and I moved into a new apartment, we rushed into some decisions about soundproofing the whole room without even seeking for the real problem.
So, we spent a lot of money for some unnecessary methods of soundproofing instead of finding out first what the problem is. Finally, when we have done soundproofing some parts, we found out some little holes in the wall that made a problem much bigger than it seemed.

Inspect for the holes, as they might be the biggest problem (in most of the times).
Also, solving this problem is much easier than any other method of soundproofing. Nevertheless, you will spare some money. Of course, some methods are pricier than others, but all in all, soundproofing the holes is the cheapest among all soundproofing methods.Continue reading
