Loud noises are unpleasant sounds that cause us all to be disturbed. It has, nevertheless, grown into a huge issue all across the world. Noise pollution is defined as an unwelcome and potentially harmful amount of noise in the surroundings. It’s also known as noise pollution, and it’s hazardous to all living things. There are both indoor and outdoor causes of noise pollution.
Noise pollution may cause a variety of health issues, including hearing loss, high blood pressure, and mental health issues. It also has to do with an animal’s ability to communicate and hear. Noise pollution must be managed, and public awareness of this unseen hazard must be raised.
A sound that is louder than 85 decibels is considered to be a hazardous level of sound that can lead to hearing damage over time.
1.Industrialization, particularly in metropolitan areas, is one of the key culprits. Heavy equipment, such as generators, compressors, mills, and other industrial machinery, emits high-pitched noises that are both unpleasant and disruptive.
2.Another important source of noise pollution is automobile traffic. Increasing traffic of automobiles, motorbikes, trucks and other vehicles must result in increased noise pollution on the road.
3.Excavators, compressors, hammers, and other heavy equipment are used in the construction of roads, buildings, apartments, and highways, among other things. These make a lot of noise, which disturbs the environment.
4.Poor urban design, such as crowded living spaces, big families living in a limited area, parking spots, and so on, leads to a lot of disputes since everyone is fighting for the same resources.
5.Firecrackers are also a cause of noise pollution at festivals. The sounds produced by these crackers are particularly high-pitched and abrupt. They contribute to both noise and air pollution.
6.Playing loud music, especially on social occasions such as weddings, is another cause of noise pollution.
7.Military low-flying aircraft also contribute to noise pollution. Submarines contribute to ocean sound pollution.
8.Household appliances, air conditioners, and kitchen appliances, for example, are all causes of noise pollution.
9.Wildlife and marine life are also affected by noise pollution. Animals have better hearing than humans. Starting with a pet at home, noise pollution can affect their listening abilities and induce behavioral changes.
10.Internal harm, such as cardiovascular difficulties, and physical difficulties, such as hearing impairment, are caused by ocean sound pollution in marine life. They have little choice except to abandon suitable environments.
Ways to control pollution:
(1) Reduce noise at its source
2) obstruct noise’s course
3) lengthen the route
(4) The receiver must be safeguarded.
