How to make a hamster wheel quiet?

I hope most of my readers will agree with my statement on the hamster wheel,
"Hamster wheel noise is quite annoying especially at night".

I am a big lover of this pet, and many of you'll be as well.

Let me tell you something unique about hamster before we dive deep into the solution.

Hamster uses the night to charge up and perform the usual exercises. Falling to exercise at night might lead to serious health complications.

All said and done, let me tell you, there are numerous methods to get rid of hamster wheel noise.

Some methods fall under the category of a complete solution while rest have some downside associated with it.

However, at the end of the day, the amount you're ready to invest directly influence the efficacy of a solution.

So, without any further ado, let's dive deep into the solution.

How to Make a Hamster Wheel Quiet?

1. Cage Location

If you're planning for a complete solution, then planning and investment are two critical parameters that you need to consider.

However, at the same time, you can't ignore the importance of location. It can have direct as well as indirect influence.

I've seen loads of my clients placing the hamster cage right next to their door which can be a debacle especially if you're planning to sleep with the cage in your bedroom.

Once you realize that you're getting affected by cage location, then relocate it.

Place it in a room which has sufficient airflow.

Avoid placing the cage in a room having sunlight for a long time.

Another thing that you can do is to place the hamster cage in your bedroom in the day time and change the location during the night.

By doing so, you'll have a sound sleep and at the same time, the hamster will also do the regular exercise.

In fact, its a win-win situation for both of you.

2. Invest in a Silent Hamster Wheel

The easiest way to get rid of the noise coming from the hamster wheel is to remove the wheel from the cage.

However, it may lead to some serious health issues to the hamster in the long run.

I believe that the wheel is the part of hamster life and it helps the hamster to perform regular exercises.

So, I would recommend you to invest in a silent hamster wheel.

Just by investing a few bucks you can keep hamster healthy, and also, you'll be free from any unwanted noise.

Hope it helps!

There are many silent hamster's wheels available on the market. You can even buy it from the local shop.

If you've time then do some research on the product that you wanna buy.

In case, you're looking for my opinion, then I would recommend you to try these

silent hamster wheels. I recommend the same wheels to my clients.

It goes without saying that these wheels are customized to get rid of any sort of unwanted sound.

These wheels are quite affordable, and the USP of this product is the safety that it provides to the hamster.

It uses an innovative ball bearing technology which allows the wheels to roll smoothly and silently.

Allow me to brief you a bit more about the hamster wheels.

You'll find two types of hamster wheel on the market.

Needless to say, both wooden and plastic hamster wheels are good and provides hamster a solid running surface with almost negligible scope for an accident.

If you're very particular about the decor of your room, then let me tell you, these hamster wheels come in different shape, size, and color, so you can easily select one that suits the interiors of your room.

Though these products are innovative still the company have made them available on the affordable price which is perhaps one of the important reasons for their popularity.

3. Choose the RIGHT Hamster Cage

Well, my above statement makes sense, isn't it?

At times, you may not be satisfied with the product even though you've paid a premium price for it, right?

If it is the case with you, then let me tell you, a lot many of us face the same problem on a day to day basis.

Can you guess the culprit?

I hope you can, and there is no freebie :) for guessing right.

We often the fact that there can be a wrong buy, if we're not sure about our requirement or if there is a loophole in our planning.

So, in the time of information overload, buying correct is "smart buying".

Let me know in the comment section on whether you agree with my statement or NOT.

Another great way to make your hamster quiet is by insulating it or investing in a new one.

Without any doubt, both of the aforementioned methods work fine.

I've seen my clients going with the traditional cage with metal bars, but I'm personally not in favor of such a cage.

It has been found that when hamsters get stressed, they began to gnaw and chew the bars which are by no way good for its health.

If I've to talk in your context, the gnawing may irritate you leading to improve sleep.

Nowadays, I'm recommending plastic cages to my clients. 

You can search these cages in the local shop or you can order it online.

There are many "value for money" cages available on the market. You can buy one that suits your budget and fulfill your requirement.

Personally, I feel this hamster is perhaps one of the best hamsters available on the market.

I've been recommending it to my clientele from almost a year and so, and the feedback from my clients is mindboggling.

In case, it interests you, give it a shot.

The USP of this hamster is the big space and lots of accessories associated with it.

The quality of plastic is superlative and install is quite easy.

You don't need any professional help for the installation process.

Another thing that I loved about this cage is that it doesn't fall over when the hamster is running.

Almost zero maintenance cost, and it goes without saying that the noise coming from the wheel is almost negligible.

Still not convinced about the cage?

Well, check what the customers are saying about this product:)

Hope it helps!

On the downside, the aforementioned cage is a bit costly, and if you're tight on budget, then you can try this cage.

On the other hand, if you're NOT in a position to invest in a silent hamster cage, then I've got an innovative trick for you.

Take a thick blanket, and multi-fold it and place it beneath the cage. 

These blankets are made of soundproofing materials and it will absorb most of the noise produced by the hamster wheel.

You can even try sound canceling curtains on the place of blankets.

4. Lubricate the Hamster Wheel

Sometimes, you can get rid of the wheel noise by simply lubricating it.

As we all know the main purpose of the hamster wheel is to spin, but without regular maintenance, the wheels can go rusty and squeaky over time.

If you're also facing the same problem with your hamster wheel, then lubricate the spinning component of the wheel and you're done.

The process of lubrication is quite simple. Take out the wheel parts and use lubricating oil or vaseline all over the parts.

These include hinges and axles.

Finally, replace the wheels for the smooth functioning of the hamster.

In the next section, I'll talk more about removing the hamster wheel. So, keep reading...

5. Remove the Hamster Wheel

This is perhaps the most crucial steps in making a hamster wheel silent. 

However, I would ONLY recommend this method if you haven't got any SUCCESS in the previous steps.

Once you're going to sleep, simply remove the wheels from the cage. This is only recommended as a temporary solution.

If you'll keep doing this in long run, then it may affect your hamster health drastically.

A better option could be to invest in the plastic hamster wheel.

6. A Combination of the aforementioned methods

You can use a combination of the aforementioned methods for the best result. 

For example, if you're on a tight budget, then lubricating the wheel and relocating the cage can do the work for you.

Similarly, buying a new cage and placing a thick curtain/moving blanket beneath the cage can go hand in hand.

Wrapping UP:

Follow the aforementioned steps and you'll definitely get rid of the hamster wheel noise.

In case, you've followed some other methods to get rid of the unwanted noise, then let us know in the comment section.

Definitely, it would be of great help to my readers.

Last but not least, share this piece of information with your friends and family.
