“Dear PoPville,

How would one go about insulating a basement unit so sounds don’t pass btw the upper unit and the lower unit? I assume you can blow insulation in above the basement ceiling/below the upper level’s floorboards, but I’m not sure who to contact to do the work. Any leads would be appreciated!!”
