Understand the characteristics of PVC materials

PVC material has certain anti-mildew properties. Because the chemical composition of PVC material is polyvinyl chloride, it is a thermoplastic material. PVC molecules contain a large number of chlorine atoms, which have a strong sterilization and disinfection effect, so PVC materials are not prone to mold growth.


Factors affecting the mildew-proof performance of PVC baseboards

PVC baseboards are mildew-resistant. But in some special cases, mold may occur. The following factors may affect the mildew resistance of PVC:


Production Process

Inferior PVC skirting may have quality problems. For example, improper use of additives during the production process, unqualified production processes, etc. These factors will affect the anti-mildew performance of the baseboard itself.


Impact of installation environment

If PVC skirting is installed in a humid and hot environment, it can also easily lead to mold growth. Such as wet bathrooms, kitchens, and other areas.


Routine maintenance

If the PVC skirting is exposed to a humid environment for a long time and is not cleaned regularly, mildew may also occur.

How to prevent PVC skirting from mold?

To keep the PVC baseboards with a good finish for a long time, we need to pay attention to the following things:


Choose quality baseboard profiles and source manufacturers

When you buy PVC skirting lines, it is recommended to give priority to manufacturers that specialize in producing PVC skirting profiles, so that the quality of the products will be more reliable.


Secondly, when you place an order with the supplier, you should take samples in advance to ensure their quality.


Avoid installing PVC skirting in high-temperature and humid environments

Although PVC baseboards have excellent waterproof, moisture-proof, corrosion-resistant, mildew-proof, and other properties. But to maintain their beautiful finish over the long term, it is recommended to install them in an indoor environment. Such as living room, bedroom, stairs, etc.


Regular cleaning and maintenance

Baseboard profiles require regular cleaning and maintenance. Even if they are installed in an indoor environment, it is recommended to clean them regularly. Wipe away dust and stains to maintain a clean finish and keep it dry.

Conclusion

All in all, PVC baseboards are mildew-resistant. But that doesn’t mean they won’t develop mold. We should pay attention to some things when selecting, installing, and using PVC skirting to avoid mold on the skirting.
