Believe me, a soaked and flooded basement is just the start of your problems. If the water isn’t moved, it can damage the flooring of your house.

Leave it for too long and the furniture will get damaged as well. Poor drainage, damage to your water discharge, and water blockade can turn your house into an island (pun intended).

How to Soundproof a Dorm Room and Block Out Noise

how to soundproof a dorm room

Life in a dorm room is part of a life of almost every student on their way to that degree.

Good things about dorms are that they are cheap, often near the college, that you can make some amazing friendships there, and that your room is your own for the time you will be living there.

You can make whatever you want out of it, and make it seem like a piece of home that you just moved out of.

On the other hand, there are some bad sides to living in a dorm.

A dorm’s rooms are often very small and very plain and walls are so thin that they seem like they are made of paper.

That is a big no- no for anyone who is really willing to spend their time in there, sleep there, and study there.

For those of you who are already spending a fortune on earplugs, I have assembled a few simple tricks to making your dorm life more comfortable.

Do not worry! I know that being a student requires a lot of money, so most of the techniques are what you can do very cheaply and very simply by bringing stuff from your home, or getting them in a local store for a very fair price.

Quietest Drones 2019: Reviews and Buying Guide

quietest drones

When someone sees a flying object these days, nine out of ten times it’s a drone.

These things might look like toys but they do some serious business. Drones do surveillance work, take pictures, record videos, and carry objects. I must tell you, these things are the best at what they do.

If there’s one aspect that makers found hard to manage, it’s the sound. If one of these devices does a near fly-by, people would know.

Thankfully, technology is at a point where manufacturers can produce drones with thick bodies. These things mask the materials and their vibrations while running.

As a result, drones of this age are silent unlike before.

But a different kind of problem lingers on. Users are still finding it tough to find the quietest drones on the market thanks to so many brands and models around. There are not enough resources describing the benefits of these tools and accurate noise test results.

All of it changes today with this article of mine. Here I discuss the reasons for having a quiet drone around. I put out a buying guide discussing the blueprints of finding the perfect machine. I’ve thrown in in-depth reviews of some of the best silent drones in business too.
