1. Are PVC baseboards waterproof?

There is no doubt that PVC skirting is waterproof. The average absorption rate of PVC is 0.5%, while the absorption rate of other woods exceeds 8%.


Therefore, if the main material of the baseboards is PVC, they will have excellent waterproof and moisture-proof properties. They will not deform, rot, or swell when installed in a humid environment for a long time like other wooden baseboards.

2. The reasons why PVC baseboards are waterproof

2.1 Material factors

PVC is a plastic material with excellent waterproof properties. Because of its compact molecular structure, it has high waterproof isolation and can effectively prevent moisture penetration.


2.2 Product structure factors

PVC skirting boards are usually formed in one piece or spliced with a simple structure, which reduces structural gaps and the possibility of water seepage and improves the overall waterproof performance.


2.3 Production process factors

PVC skirting usually uses an extrusion molding process to ensure the uniformity and density of the material, thereby improving the waterproof performance.



PVC skirting boards may undergo surface treatment during the production process, such as UV coating or waterproof coating, which enhances the waterproof performance of the surface.

3. Test the waterproof performance of PVC baseboards

In the video experiment, we conducted waterproof and fireproof tests on the PVC baseboards. During the waterproof test, we poured clean water on the surface of a small piece of PVC skirting. We found that the surface of the skirting was very smooth, and the water flowed down along the edge, and no water traces penetrated the product. Therefore, it can be seen that PVC baseboards are waterproof.




4. Indoor application of PVC baseboards

PVC skirting can be applied in indoor areas, such as indoor living rooms, indoor bedrooms, indoor stairs, indoor kitchens, indoor corridors, etc. No matter where it is used indoors, we need to consider whether it matches the interior decoration style.


4.1 living room

The living room is an area that we use for a long time in our daily lives. Therefore, whether the decoration of the living room is exquisite and comfortable will greatly affect our indoor living experience. Choosing PVC baseboards to match other elements of the living room to create a unique living room style will undoubtedly give us a pleasant physical and mental experience and increase our love for life.


4.2 bedroom

The bedroom is a quiet resting area, so it should be noted that the color of the skirting installed in the bedroom should not be too bright because this is likely to increase our visual excitement and is not conducive to our visual physical, and mental relaxation. Therefore, when choosing the color of the skirting boards in the bedroom, you should choose to choose relatively natural colors with soft tones, so that they can be matched with other decorative elements in the bedroom to create a quiet and comfortable resting area.


4.3 stairs

Stairs are a common location for baseboards. PVC baseboards are installed in the stair area to create a unique interior style. However, it should be noted that when choosing the color of the stair skirting, you need to consider whether its color matches the color of the wall of the stair or whether it matches the color of the stair floor.


4.4 kitchen

As we all know, the kitchen is a relatively humid environment than other areas. Therefore, if you are planning to install skirting boards in your kitchen. In particular, you need to consider whether it is waterproof, moisture-proof, and non-flammable. The material of our PVC baseboards is mainly composed of polyvinyl chloride resin adhesive, calcium carbonate, and other additives, so they not only have excellent waterproof properties but are also non-flammable. Therefore they are also a great choice for decorating the kitchen area.

5. Routine maintenance of PVC baseboards

The maintenance of PVC skirting is a straightforward task. It does not take up too much of our time. We only need to follow the following maintenance principles to complete its daily maintenance easily.


5.1 During the cleaning process, avoid using strong acid and alkali detergents to avoid damaging the surface of the PVC skirting lines.


5.2 Avoid using sharp or rough objects to directly scratch the skirting surface to avoid scratches or damage.


5.3 Avoid prolonged exposure to direct sunlight to avoid color fading or deformation.

6. Conclusion

To summarize, the waterproof performance of PVC skirting mainly comes from the comprehensive effect of multiple factors such as the characteristics of its material, structural design, and production process. In the future, with the continuous development of our technology and the expansion of application fields, the waterproof performance of PVC skirting lines will be further improved, so that they can be used in more areas of our lives.
