How to soundproof a mobile home

How to soundproof a mobile home

A mobile home is a very practical housing option that is gaining more and more popularity. If you have recently moved into a mobile home or are thinking about it in the near future, you should know that its constructions have thinner walls through which sound can easily penetrate. Sound insulation will ensure enough peace and privacy in the interior of your mobile home.

3 ways to soundproof your mobile home

Sound insulation will solve many types of noise around your mobile home. Here are three ways you can stop sound from getting in or out.

1. Add density to your walls

The walls of your mobile home are a relatively small barrier between the interior and the exterior, so sounds penetrate easily. Adding density creates more mass for the sound waves, reducing transmitted noise. You can add mass to the walls in two places:

  • between walls - you can insulate the mobile home with soundproof insulation between any interior or exterior wall to minimize the transition. Insulation also retains heat;
  • on the interior surface – as the name implies, covering a wall with bulk-loaded vinyl (MLV) adds mass that prevents transfer. Acoustic foam panels serve a similar purpose, absorbing sound at the same time.

2. Soften all hard surfaces

The sound bounces off the bare walls, floors and ceiling of the mobile home, which will result in disturbing echoes and noises. Softer materials absorb the sound, resulting in a quieter indoor environment. Here are some options:

  • acoustic panels – as we mentioned above, acoustic panels are great for absorbing sound. Nowadays, there are even artistic acoustic panels with custom designs;
  • soundproof foam - these soft foam boards absorb what they can and disperse the rest on their irregular surface;
  • floor mat - install a floor mat under carpets to reduce vibration and experience some absorption benefit.

3. Fill all cracks

Sound can get in and out through the cracks around your door. Fortunately, you can line these with silicone door soundproofing products to limit noise transmission. Door stops are installed under your door, while perimeter seals go around the sides and top. If you have cracks in walls or other areas where surfaces meet, the best solution is to fill the cracks with acoustic sealant.
