Probably every person who lives in a block of flats or an apartment building has had the bad experience of having to listen to some neighbors partying at night or listening to loud music during the day or in the early evening.
Maybe they are arguing or they have many guests who contribute to the loudness that bothers you.
The questions we probably ask ourselves in a situation like this are – will they ever end this torture?
How can I stop them from making so much noise?
Should I complain and what would be the most efficient way to do that?
Whether you are trying to sleep but your upstairs neighbor finds it convenient to vacuum his apartment at 1 in the morning, or you’re studying for a test but the traffic jam outside of your home is so loud that the horns start to resemble the melody of Mozart’s Requiem, you might be desperate for some earplugs.
But as earplugs are sometimes very uncomfortable, either they fall out or they jam tightly in your ear, and let’s not start about how easy it is to lose them, you might want to look for an alternative.
Luckily for you, we’ve thought of some methods you could use to block out the noise and have a great night’s sleep or a peaceful and quiet place to study.
There comes a time in a person’s life when car keys are left in the car, all alone and abandoned. And then, the car auto-locks, and then you can’t unlock it without using the keys, and then you’re left with only two options – call the experts, or break your car window.
In case option 1 does not work for whatever reason, or if you’re simply in that big of a hurry to retrieve your keys/save a child from an overheated car left under the scorching sun by a particularly negligent parent, breaking the car window is a necessary evil.
Without a doubt, breaking a car window can be a messy and noisy business in any scenario, and we’re here to help you out with just that: eliminating noise while breaking your car window!
There are multiple reasons for breaking your window glass quietly.
You’re either renovating and want to be a good neighbor and reduce the glass shattering noise to the bare minimum, or you’re stuck inside a room with faulty windows and the only way out is to break the glass, but you don’t want the neighbors to call the cops thinking that you’re a burglar.
In this neat little guide, we’ll give you some useful tips about breaking your window glass as silently as possible and as safely as possible without making a huge mess out of it. Let’s dig in, shall we?
If you’ve ever lived in an apartment, you’re probably familiar with the following situation: you’re minding your own business, but strange noises keep disturbing your peace. You keep hearing sounds such as people talking or walking around – they’re coming from neighbors that live in the same apartment building as you.
Surely you’ve seen the scenes in movies where people lean on walls to eavesdrop on their neighbors’ conversations, but thin walls don’t have to be the only cause of the unpleasant occurrence that is noise in your apartment. Even though it is less thought about and rarely seen in movies, could it be that floors and ceilings are also to blame for this problem?
This raises another question – if you can hear your neighbors because of thin floors or ceilings, does that mean that sound travels up?
Could that be the reason behind the noise you hear in your apartment, even though you may be on the last floor of the building, with no one else above you?
And also, which factors determine how loud the sound coming from bellow will be, and what are the measures for minimizing it?
Let’s answer these questions and help you bring back the peaceful atmosphere of your home!
With many options at hand, finding the perfect generator for our houses and job sites is tough as hell. When you narrow it down to 3000 watts, the job becomes even harder.
Don’t get me wrong, you DO get choices. But the hard part is to pick the perfect one. When you’re an advocate of a soundproof home like me, you tend to be choosy.
That’s why combining a specific power range and less sound took some doing. After some research and practical experience, I’m able to pinpoint quietest 3000-watt generators that you should get next year (or right now if you’re in a hurry).
Of course, you’ll find a buying guide detailing my researching process and factors that I considered while coming up with these products.
You finally managed to find that house or apartment you were looking for, being perfect in any sense.
You and your family moved in and everything was just as you imagined. But then it happened – the truth hit you.
Although you had been informed about a train noise, you took it for granted, assuming that it wouldn’t be that much of a problem. Yes, you have a great home now, and yes, the horns and whistles of a train are unbearable.
Although the noise pollution can be a more significant trouble in an urban area, it is always a problem how to deal with the train noise at home when you live near a railroad track, whether in a suburban area or a center of a city.
Noises such as train horn and whistle, although sounded with purpose, could be reduced by certain soundproofing methods to achieve both short-term and permanent solution.
Those who are looking for a noise reduction solution should be aware that it might be needed to employ more than one method if the disquieting noise is immensely loud.
Having in mind all these facts and inconveniences, should you consider selling your dream house and giving up on your home? But why would you do that when you could use some of the following soundproofing solutions and still enjoy your home?
If you live in an older house, you’ll probably come across the problem of a squeaky floor.
Sure, vintage houses are unique and, in a way, charming, but problems like this make it difficult to enjoy the time you spend in them. You don’t want to feel like you’re living in a haunted house.
My friend used to put up with her squeaky floors for years just because she had no idea that it’s incredibly easy to solve this and that she can do it all on her own. She thought that she would need to hire a professional and spend tons of money just because she was not well informed.
Luckily, I am here to show you how to fix your squeaky hardwood floor and let you know that it’s rather easy. In fact, there is a number of different ways to fix your floors and you don’t even have to be a professional to do it.
You won’t need to spend a lot of money and time – the entire fixing process usually doesn’t last longer than ten minutes.
