Q: Acoustic Insulation. I have last week moved into a house which I am really pleased with except for the fact that the neighbours TV and voices can be heard through the walls. Does anyone have tips on what I can do to increase the amount of acoustic insulation between us & them ? The house is semi-detached so we only need one wall to be insulated. Many thanks in advance -- "Chris Checkley" Reply (Ref:0180)

A: Carpet Repair.  Here's what I did: Trim all the cigarette burn part away with fingernail (cuticle) scissors. Go to several other places in your carpet and snip pieces of it. Superglue these little snippits into the burn place. Check the repaired place again in a day and add more snipped pieces if you think you need to. --  BillyElton Reply 10/05/2005
