In this case, you do not need to found the cons in the soundproofing of home, because the sound may be coming from the gap of doors.
You need to soundproof your doors instead of reworking on other objects of home to soundproof.

2. Installation of the Door Sweep
You do not get finished the soundproofing the door after filling the gaps and cracks by the insulating sealant because still there is one another gap from which the sound transmission is carried on.
Yes, the gap between the bottom edge of the door and your surface is cause of the transmission of the sound which will distract you from your focus.
Second thing I want to mention that this is not as easy as filling the gaps and cracks that you drill the screw and will fixe permanently.
In this problem, you will have to use the different technique.

One more way that I did not discuss here about adding the Soundproof Blankets, as with that way the look of your door will not remain good and prettly.

So the best solution is to add the soundproof foams which prevent the unwanted sound disturbing you from the outside.
