soundproofing

I live in a two floor coop. I'm on the second floor. I snore. When I snore my neighbor knocks on the wall and wakes me up to 5 times a night. His bedroom is right below mine.

I've tried putting 4 layers of carpeting on the floor. I even got carpeting on one of my walls that I stapled into the wall.

Nothing has worked so far.

I actually don't even snore that loud according to people I've roomed with and I don't have sleep apnea.

There is so much information online about soundproofing I don't know what to believe and what not to.

Can anyone give me some advice on how to soundproof my room so my neighbor doesn't hear my snoring and lets me sleep?

Welcome to the forums.

We keep a topic in a single forum. So this thread is the only one active on your soundproofing question.

I don't have a direct answer but hang on..... others will stop by and add information.

I doubt you will find a definitive way of "soundproofing" the room, as it is virtually impossible. Your walls will carry the vibrations to the floor and it will activate vibrations in the floor. Decoupling the walls and floor will help, but that's expensive, and probably impractical. Why not work on the problem rather than fixing something that ain't broke. There are products that help with snoring. I use the Breathe Right strips and it helps quite a bit. There are mouthpieces that, when in place, keep your head at the proper attitude to allow you to breathe but not snore. A little research may help you eliminate the problem.
