There are few things that are quite as annoying as inconsiderate noisy neighbours. You expect to be able to live your home life in peace but for many people that just is not the case. Loud conversation, loud music and loud appliances can all destroy our enjoyment of resting up and spending precious time with the family when all we really deserve is a little bit of quiet.
One positive bit of news for anyone disturbed by excess noise caused by those around them when in the home is that the authorities do seem to be cracking down on offenders.
One such example includes a Dereham man who has recently been sentenced to 15 weeks imprisonment for playing loud music and disturbing his neighbours. Part of the reason for his imprisonment was due to breaching an injunction twice and failing to show up in court but it does prove that such instances will no longer be tolerated. This is an extreme case but action needed to be taken.
We are all familiar with just how damaging noise can be. It can affect our whole well-being both mentally and psychologically and drive you to the point of despair. No-one should reach this stage but if you have then you need to look into ways of putting an end to it.
Of course speaking to the neighbours concerned should be the first step. You would be surprised at how accommodating those responsible can sometimes be as they may not even be aware that they are causing you regular disturbance. A little and polite word in the ear can more often than not put an end to the situation.
If the noise is at a level that you feel is acceptable but it is still filtering its way into your private living space then you need to be proactive and look into ways of reducing it.
You can either adopt sound reduction-related products inside your home when soundproofing a room, outside in the form of Sound barriers or use a combination of both. Collectively they will make a considerably difference to what you hear from one home to another and will put an end to you tearing your hair out as you look to get a rest of soundless sleep.
The relationship between you and your neighbours is far more likely to be cordial when you undertake a successful soundproofing project in and around your home.
