Top 5 Reasons to Choose Soundproofing Foam for Your Home or Office

Noise seems to follow us everywhere. If you're tired of the constant buzz of traffic, noisy neighbors, or the endless chatter in the office, you're not alone. Finding a quiet moment seems harder than ever these days. But there's a straightforward fix that is what you need: soundproofing foam. This nifty solution is about turning your home and office into the peaceful sanctuaries you deserve.

Why soundproofing foam, you ask? Beyond dialing down the noise, it's about creating spaces that feel good to be in — places where you can work better, relax fully, and enjoy more privacy. This blog is here to walk you through the top five reasons soundproofing foam stands out as a smart pick for anyone looking to make their indoor environments quieter. From making it easier to concentrate to keep your conversations private, discover how this affordable and user-friendly option could make a big difference in your life.

Enhances Privacy and Reduces Noise Pollution

In today's busy world, finding a moment of quiet can be a real challenge. Whether it's the noise from the street or the sound of neighbors, these sounds can easily invade our homes and offices, making it hard to relax or work. Soundproofing foam steps in as a hero, offering a simple yet effective way to keep unwanted noise at bay and secure our privacy.

Create a Quieter Home Environment

Imagine coming home after a long day, looking forward to some peace and quiet, only to be greeted by the roar of traffic or loud music from next door. It's frustrating, isn't it? Soundproofing foam can change that. By adding a layer of this foam to walls or ceilings, you can significantly reduce the amount of noise that enters your living space. It acts like a barrier, keeping the outside noise out and allowing you to enjoy your home in peace. Whether you want to relax, spend time with family, or just enjoy a good book, soundproofing foam helps create the tranquil home environment you deserve.

Improve Confidentiality in Office Spaces

In the office, privacy is key to productivity and maintaining a professional environment. But in spaces where discussions and phone calls are a constant, keeping conversations private can be a challenge. This is where soundproofing foam shows its value. Installing it in meeting rooms and offices not only helps in reducing the intrusion of outside noise but also keeps internal discussions from being heard outside. This means you can discuss sensitive topics without worrying about being overheard, ensuring confidentiality and fostering a trustful working atmosphere.


Boosts Concentration and Productivity

We all know how hard it can be to focus when there's a lot of noise around. Whether it's the constant buzz of traffic, the chatter from the next room, or even the hum of appliances, these sounds can make it tough to concentrate on what we're doing. This is where soundproofing foam comes into play, offering an effective solution to help boost concentration and productivity both in the workplace and at home.

Minimizes Distractions at Work

In an office setting, the ability to focus on our tasks is crucial. Noise distractions, however, can interrupt our flow, making it harder to complete work efficiently. Soundproofing foam can make a big difference in such environments. By absorbing and blocking out unwanted sounds, it helps create a quieter, more focused workspace. This means fewer interruptions from the noises around, allowing employees to concentrate better on their tasks, leading to improved productivity and a more efficient work process.

Supports Focused Study Spaces at Home

For those of us studying or working from home, finding a quiet spot can sometimes feel impossible. From family conversations to neighborhood noises, these distractions can disrupt our concentration and slow down our progress. Applying soundproofing foam in study areas or home offices can significantly reduce these distractions, providing a more conducive environment for focus and learning. It creates a sanctuary where one can study, read, or work on projects without the constant interruption of outside noise, fostering an atmosphere where concentration thrives and productivity flourishes.

Step 1

To install the material you need be working on the metal surface of the car, remove upholstery. If you have never done this, we suggest searching it up on YouTube. Once the upholstery is removed, make sure there is no debris, waxy oils or rust by cleaning the surface with denatured alcohol.

Step 2

Once surface is clean and ready to go, cut the sound deadening material to the right size so it fits desired area. For small surfaces, we recommend that you measure the dimensions and then cut to fit.

Step 3

With the surface area clean and pieces cut to desired dimensions, peel off the paper and apply material to surface area starting from the top to bottom using the car door holes to help with alignment. We recommend using a hand roller to ensure that there are no air pockets and ensure the adhesiveness.

Sound Deadener Install FAQ: Tips & Tricks

What tools will I need to for a sound deadening project?  
  • Rag & Denatured Alcohol: Apply the alcohol to the rag and use to clean the metal surface areas you will be applying the material to.
  • Gloves: Our product is pretty safe to install without gloves but if you have never installed a sound deadener mat, we recommend using gloves.
  • Hand roller: We highly recommend using a small roller to reach the tighter surface areas of your vehicle. You can find these on Amazon or most online retail shops. There are wooden, rubber and metal rollers, we recommend wooden or rubber, try and stay away from metal as they can tear the material.
  • Utility Knife: The utility blade is to cut the material. Make sure to cut the material on top of a pice of cardboard so that your blade stays sharper longer, if it's a big job, have some extra blades around.
How do you apply sound deadener material? 

We sell our roll on sound deadener product in 2 different formats: custom cut to fit pro kits and an easy to work with rolled up large sheet. If you can measure, cut, peel and stick you can install sound deadener! You can use your hand to apply pressure when positioning the material and then use a roller to make sure it sticks down to metal surface.

After you cut the material and are ready to stick it on, some customers find it easier to peel off a small portion of the release liner and then apply it to metal surface, and then work their way across the sheet, peeling off a small section at a time.

Make sure to always remove the air bubbles with the roller. The second most important thing when it comes to quality of sound deadener is the quality of adhesion to the surface area. You want the material to be stuck down properly to ensure it stays in place.

Where do you apply the sound deadening material?  

The great thing about our sound deadening material is that it can be applied to all types of metal surfaces. All SoundSkins sheets use extremely strong adhesive and they can even be mounted on fiberglass, plastic and even wooden surfaces, but it's not very common to apply to these surfaces since they don't vibrate as much. By covering all metal surfaces such as your doors, roof, trunk and floor you can make a significant difference to unwanted road noise.

Your top priority when applying a car sound deadener is to cover the doors, floor and trunk. If you have extra material then proceed to other metal surfaces you wish to cover for extra sound insulation.

How much surface area should I cover?  

To properly deaden the metal surfaces, we recommend to at least do 25% coverage with our SoundSkins material, this will make a difference in unwanted road noise, but to have a huge impact we recommend covering up 60% of metal surfaces. If you want to get the most used from your sheet, one effective strategy is the CHECKER BOARD APPROACH, using this technique you cut the SoundSkins sheet into small pieces and apply them to the metal surface in a checkered pattern.

It is very common for our customers to do close to 100& coverage to any metal surface because not only are they looking to reduce road noise, they also want to insulate their car from heat or they like the way the material looks on the car's bare metal surface.

How do I make sure the sound deadener sticks well?

SoundSkins products are made with a very strong adhesive and create a extremely strong bond with the metal, it's really hard to NOT make it stick. To ensure the best possible bond, we highly recommend cleaning the metal surface before applying our material and then using a hand roller to firmly attach the SoundSkins deadening mats.

Great adhesion with no air bubbles is the absolute key if you want to get the best performance. Remember that any air pocket with poor adhesion means you will not get the full benefit of the deadener.

How to install car sound deadener: Recap
  1. Remove upholstery and carpet from your vehicle. Proceed to vacuum to get rid of debris and dirt. Clean all greasy spots with denatured alcohol, other solvents or degreasers will leave behind a film that prevents a solid contact surface. Allow metal surface to try.
  2. Cut the SoundSkins sheet to desired size and cut using a sharp utility knife. Use gloves to avoid any cuts.
  3. Peel off the wax paper from the back of material and apply to surface, this can be done by small sections at a time. Use roller to create a strong bond between material and metal surface and to get rid of any air bubbles.
