For example, a whisper creates a level of 30 dB, and an engine sound - 40, a vacuum cleaner makes a sound of 70. A sound of more than 100 decibels can create pain. Staying in a place where the sound reaches 120-130 contributes to mental disorder. In order not to violate the permitted noise threshold, devices that absorb sound can be used with a power tool.

The requirements for silence are set forth in 52 Federal Law. It spells out periods when it is allowed to increase the noise level during the repair and construction works. The punishment for breaking the law is spelled out in the Civil Administrative Code. In accordance with these documents, night time is from 23 hours to 7 in the morning.

    My mother-in-law lives. She is 92 years old. She suffered a stroke. Neighbors make repairs and work as a hammer drill from morning to evening. It is impossible to endure not only the elderly, sick person, but also healthy! What to do ? I live in Karelia in Petrozavodsk. Both my wife and I are pensioners. I'm on disability.
