Domestic soundproofing: why put up with noisy neighbours?

If you’re unfortunate enough to live in a noisy neighbourhood, or are stuck living next door to the neighbours from hell that seem to take pleasure in making your life a misery, then you deserve the deepest sympathy. It must be a nightmare.  Surely there must be something you can do about it, but the question is what exactly? Do you do the typically British thing and complain under your breath, but grudgingly accept it, or do you take matters into your own hands and confront the source of the problem? Most people probably just put up with the unacceptable behaviour. Now of course there’s nothing to stop you approaching your neighbour and trying to reason with them about perhaps turning the volume down in the name of friendliness. It may just do the trick. Failing that you can always approach the Environmental Health Officer at your Local Authority who may intervene and mediate on your behalf if the problem is serious. The very last resort is to take a civil action yourself, and pursue the matter through the Magistrates Courts.
Many people affected by noise pollution are forced to go through all of these processes simply because they want a bit of peace and quiet. The problem is noise pollution itself is stressful. If you’re then forced to confront problem neighbours or go to court, you’ll simply exacerbate the problem and just add to the stress. Let’s face it, life really is too short for that. What is needed is a practical solution to noise pollution at the end of the day. Sadly someone won’t come along and wave a magic wand and remove the problem once and for all, but there are effective domestic soundproofing products available that can help to solve the problem.
