Whether you need it for improving sound quality or noise control, installing acoustic foam in your room or music studio is a good way to control the sound waves inside a specific space. As long as you know the right areas of the room to place your acoustic foam panels, installing acoustic foam is a relatively straightforward process.
First, you must determine how much of your wall’s surface area you want the foam panels to cover. It’s important to have exact measurements written down, so you can cut your foam into the size you need if it doesn’t fit at first. Once your foam is the right size and shape, you can use an adhesive spray to mount the foam on your walls.
Before you begin, set up a spraying area using newspapers, rags, or any disposable material to protect your room from accidental adhesive spread. Also, make sure your walls are clean and free from any dust, bumps, or other obstacles that prevent it from being a flat surface. If you’re only planning to use acoustic foam for temporary purposes, you only need to spray a light coat of adhesive to the back of your foam before installing it. If you want to attach your foam to your walls permanently, you must apply larger amounts of adhesive both to the back of your foam and to the wall it is being attached to. It’s best to wait for 5 to 10 seconds after applying the adhesive, then pushing it against the wall for around 15 seconds.
