What Is Sound Pollution?
Noise pollution includes any unwanted and disturbing sound being created. It is unwanted when the noise interferes with daily activities including conversations, sleep, or disrupts the quality of life in general. Noise pollution is not something you can see or feel. It is only something you can hear. Natural or mechanical sources can cause noise pollution. Noise pollution is particularly common in certain industries, generated from cars, planes, heavy equipment or from places that provide entertainment. These sound waves can interfere significantly with daily work, and that is why it is important to test for noise pollution and to come up with a plan for remediation.
Unwanted Stress & Health Effects
Persistent sources of noise can be considered noise pollution, and can be a considerable annoyance or possibly create a health problem. Unwanted noise causes adverse health effects including stress, loss of productivity, high blood pressure, insomnia, and possibly hearing loss. Exposure to constant or loud noises can severely affect your health. It is necessary to keep noise pollution away from workspaces as employees spend many hours working in this environment. It is also important to their productivity and health to ensure that noise pollution does not occur on a consistent basis.
How Is It Tested?
Measuring the acoustics and white noise in an area allows us to detect just how much noise and sound pollution you have in your building. We test noise levels that may not be easily detected by the ear with a unique sound level meter which includes a sound sensor to record the noise level caused by various sources. Our equipment measures decibels and sound pressure to determine an areas noise level and help us determine its origin. This allows our team to assess your environment and its noise and sound pollution hazards. Once these tests are performed we can provide you with a remediation plan so you can take action and provide your building occupants with a safe environment.
