What is Anti – Social Noise Pollution?
We label this area of concern as anti-social, but we could just as effectively describe it as the noise of modern living. From celebrations to street noise, fireworks to inconsiderate neighbours, a level of extraneous din can quickly become the bane of many lives.
Even sounds as delightful as a playground full of playing children or a park on a summer’s day will, at one time or another have home-owners at their wits end. Add to this late night disturbances, slamming car doors and taxis and the scale of the problem becomes apparent.
Whatever the cause, the facts surrounding noise pollution make grim reading, children are proven to perform less well if their sleep is disturbed while adults are more likely to suffer from hypertension and cardiovascular issues.
By the very nature of the source of these noises, specific levels can be difficult to measure, dogs barking, cars revving, motorbikes, construction traffic etc…every challenge is different and that is why Hugo Carter takes time to assess the problem before deciding on the solution. Soundproofing a home is a considered purchase and one which we believe deserves more thought than simply fitting the same off-the-shelf product for every situation.
