Detecting noise pollution

What is noise pollution?

Noise pollution or noise nuisance is, as the word suggests, nuisance caused by sound. Consider, for example, a festival that is too loud, an unexplained hum or nuisance from construction work. Noise pollution can be very serious. When a person is exposed to noise pollution for a long time, it can cause stress, sleep deprivation and even mental problems.

What does Event Acoustics do?

Event Acoustics has developed advanced measurement equipment that allows us to identify where noise pollution is coming from. We do this by measuring both the potential source and the receiver. That way we can compare whether what our equipment measures matches what the receiver hears. This method of measurement is unique and incredibly effective.

The process

Step 1

When you hire us to detect noise pollution, we will first meet with you. This will give us a picture of the nuisance you are experiencing. Then we do some tests to find out how good your hearing is and what kind of sound you hear.

Step 2

We put our equipment in all the places where the nuisance could come from and the places where you experience the nuisance. You are then asked to report when you hear the sound.

Step 3

Because we now have insight into when you hear something and when our equipment measures sound, we can compare these results. This way we can see about overlap and can find out the source.

Step 4

We share the results with you and explain where the noise is coming from. That way, follow-up steps can be taken.
