1. Are PVC baseboards insect-proof?

Yes, there is no doubt that PVC skirting is insect-proof. The main reason depends on the other materials themselves. The difference between PVC baseboards and wooden baseboards is that they do not have the conditions for insect eggs to reproduce, even in high-humidity environments. Therefore, PVC baseboards have a longer service life than traditional wooden baseboards, and they are the best alternative to wooden baseboards.


2. Key factors affecting insect infestation

a. High-humidity environment

A high-humidity environment provides good conditions for the reproduction of insect eggs. In this environment, insect eggs are more suitable for reproduction.

b. Suitable temperature conditions

Comfortable temperature is conducive to the reproduction and growth of borers.

c. Material factors

The material itself may provide a breeding environment for bugs—for example, wood products.


3.The material composition of PVC baseboards

Let me take you through the material composition of PVC baseboards so that we can have a deeper understanding of why they are insect-resistant:

a. Polyvinyl chloride

Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) is polymerized by vinyl chloride monomer (VCM) through free radical polymerization with initiators such as peroxides and azo compounds or under the action of light and heat. of polymers. Its molecular formula is -(CH2-CHCl)n-.

b. Calcium carbonate

During the production of PVC baseboards, calcium carbonate is added to increase the product's hardness.

c. Other additives

In addition, some other chemical additives will be added, such as plasticizers, stabilizers, flame retardants, etc.


4.Reasons why PVC baseboards are insect-proof:

From the above two aspects of the prerequisites for insect infestation and the material composition of PVC baseboards, the following summary can be made:

4.1. Material factors

Because there are obvious differences between PVC baseboards and wooden skirting boards, they cannot provide a living space for insect eggs. PVC skirting boards are not suitable for the survival of insect eggs.

4.2.Additive factors

In addition, some chemical additives are added to PVC baseboards during the production process, which further reduces the possibility of insect infestation, even in high-temperature and humid environments.

5.How to prevent baseboards from being infested by moths?

During the interior decoration project, you can refer to the following factors to better avoid the occurrence of insect infestation on interior decoration objects:

5.1 Priority is given to using non-wooden baseboards, such as PVC, metal, etc. If wooden baseboards are used indoors, maintenance and upkeep will need to be completed regularly.

5.2 Install the baseboards in a relatively dry area and try to stay away from humid environments.

5.3 Perform regular maintenance and cleaning to keep the indoor environment clean and tidy.


6. Conclusion

To summarize, PVC baseboards are insect-resistant, so they will last longer than wooden baseboards. As long as we install them in a relatively dry indoor environment, away from humid environments, and clean them regularly.
