Are your neighbors too loud? Do you dislike unnecessary noises from the kitchen? We get it, working from home has a challenge of its own. Don’t worry, your ears won’t have to bear it anymore. We have the why and what that will make a noise-free room.
What is noise and how can you stop it?
First of all, noise is sound. Acoustics lesson recap, just for you: there are two types of sounds. You have the airborne sound traveling through air, that includes every sound wave that falls on your ear.
The second one is structural sound, which are carried forward through an object, like footsteps. When the structural sound becomes airborne we hear it.
A noise-free room is a rather difficult task as sound waves travel the path of least resistance. The noise that irritates you, can be from a small crack on the door or bouncing off the air vent. Saying all that, we assure you that a noise-free room is not impossible to achieve.
Why is a noise-free room important?
Noise is an invisible danger to your health. You can’t see it but you can feel the obvious toll it has on your body. As mentioned earlier, noise is sound, and it is measured in decibels.
Now, you don’t have to reach the standard of “A Quiet Place” to be safe. You just need to ward off, unnecessary sounds, and limit the noise entering your space. Now, let’s see why it’s important to have a noise-free room:
- Noise causes physical problems, such as high blood pressure, heart disease, sleep disturbances, and stress.
- WHO found out at least one million healthy years of life are lost each year in Europe alone due to noise pollution (and this figure does not include noise from industrial workplaces)
- The noise that you hear while sleeping can be the most damaging. Your ears pick up and transmit sounds even when you are asleep. These are filtered and interpreted by the brain. Your body reacts in different ways via the nerves that travel to all parts of the body and the hormones released by the brain. Cases such as hyperarousal and headaches are common.
