Sound treatment and soundproofing are terms that have different meanings.
However they do share some of the same physics to arrive at their meaning, but both have completely different acoustical objectives.
I get the question all the time, '' I need some soundproofing for my restaurant." Nope. You need sound treatment.
The meaning of sound treatment is mistaken for soundproofing, a blanket term, and the definition of soundproofing is used when we are really discussing sound treatment. Ok, now that we got that figured out. Give is a call lets talk more about your issue.

Soundproofing is all about sound isolation. Using barrier technology to isolate the receiver of sound from the sender. The easiest way to do this is to build a barrier between the sound source sender and the sound receiver. We see barriers everyday that isolate sound from reaching us from other sources. All along the freeway we see that boring concrete wall. That is soundproofing. The wall in our homes which are sound barriers between us and the noise of the city, train, barking dog. If you don't want to hear your surroundings, add mass to these wall. Like a double wall with the studs offset.
If you are interested in keeping the neighbors dog, or the martial arts class next door quiet, we do offer soundproofing service.
Sound treatment or Acoustic treatment is the term we shoud all use to refer to the absorption and diffusion technology that is applied to treat the energy within our room. Pretty much adding soft absorbing materials. When it comes to your business we need to manage all surface wall, floor, and ceiling reflections that cause echo/reverberation. Low frequency energy resonances need to be managed and reduced to the level of insignificant. The room will determine what type and amount of sound absorption and sound diffusion technologies one requires within the room. Live music in a restaurant will have different acoustical needs than a concrete bar with metal chairs. Likewise, Carpeted rooms with high ceiling require different sound adjustments then a wooden walled cafe.
