7 Best Ways To Soundproof A Floor

Noise is something I find very difficult to tolerate and this post is about different ways to soundproof a floor.

With these fantastic floor mats, you don’t have to worry about pulling a furniture across the room or making any loud sounds. The sounds can’t come up, and they certainly can’t go down.

Use Carpet Padding

Carpet pads that absorb sound are thick and made mostly of rubber.  In fact with carpet pads, it is the thicker, the better. 

Get Soundproof Floor Underlayment

When installing, make sure the naked floorboard is smooth and free of any protruding nails or cracks. If it is indeed damaged, it will have to be fixed before any installation can be made.

Add Noise Proofing Compound

The famous Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound is suitable for reducing noise from either side of the floor. It can be directly applied to the existing subfloor or between two hard surfaces.

Insert Deck Screw

If you have been bothered by those squeaky floor sounds all you need are some deck screws.  You will need a pencil, drill, drill bit with a countersink, deck screws, and a bit driver.

Flooring is the final stage of your soundproofing process. You can choose to install tiles, hardwood, or laminate wood, linoleum, or carpet.

If your noise is caused by machines or appliances vibrating on the floor, you can easily solve this with a rubber floor mat.
