I have an autistic son & very often there's crying / tantruming from
him with adults shouting at him.
My mid teen daughter is often affected by this noise, be it she is
at rest or studying though she coops herself up in her bedroom
almost all the time.
I've stayed in her bedroom before & was certain all those noises
came through the wooden door of the bedroom: no noise via
the walls & windows.
I've pasted rubber matts on the wooden door but the noises are
still coming thru the door: I tried rubber matts as I've laid rubber
matts in our living room where our neighbours downstairs often
complain of noises whenever my son jumps on the floor & this
has drastically reduced the noises (& complaints) from the
Besides getting professional contractor that will cost me quite a
bit, is there any other material that I can 'paste' over the wooden
door to cut down on the noises? What do people normally pad
their drumming & guitar rooms (so that the noises don't bother
the neighbours) ?
I've read a Net posting that pasting carpets on the walls & doors
help with such drumming/cymbal & guitar rooms. Any truth in
this (before I invest in carpets) ?
I did buy a headphone & ear stubs but my daughter doesn't
often put them on as she doesn't find them very comfortable
& sometimes not in time to put them on : can't predict when
my son / adults' noises will surface :
I don't plan to invest in professional sound-proofing that costs a
lot as we won't be staying at this place for very long.
