Keeping your bathroom clean and presentable can be a daunting task for some. Tiles and grout are especially demanding as without a regular clean, mould can grow out of control on these surfaces.

If you’re looking for a bathroom wall design that is low maintenance, PVC wall panels are an ideal choice. This easy-to-fit alternative to tiling allows you to choose from a range of stylish designs such as Premium White Sparkle cladding.

Are you tired or weary of the constant care that bathroom tiles need? Here are some of the benefits of plastic wall cladding, as well as how to keep them clean.

The Benefits of PVC Wall Panels

Easier to Maintain

Tiles themselves aren’t too difficult to look after. Wiping them down is simple to do if you can keep to a regular routine. It’s the grout that surrounds the tiles that will be your biggest problem. You can’t avoid getting soap and water on your tiles, especially if you have gone for a tile look for your shower walls.

Plastic wall cladding is the perfect solution for those who want their weekly bathroom clean to be hassle-free. An adhesive sealant is used to fit the panels to your wall, which means that no grout is needed. All you have to do is wipe your panels down once a week or so, saving you valuable time and money.

Mould-Resistant Cladding

Worried that mould could ruin the glisten and shine of your white cladding? The PVC material of cladding is suitable for all wet areas unlike tiles, which require frequent care and attention in damp environments.

With any kind of wall cladding or panels being 100% waterproof, mould and grime will be a thing of the past with minimal effort from you.

Waterproof Material

PVC wall panelling is a great design choice for any bathroom thanks to its waterproof qualities. This will help to reduce the amount of condensation in the room, which will make your weekly clean much simpler to do.

Soundproof Panels

If you like to drown out any distractions and go relax in the bath, you might be happy to know that PVC wall panels and cladding are soundproof. Most tiling lacks this feature, so if you like to bathe in peace, wall panels might be the best option for you.

Easier to Install

Tiling your bathroom can be a tedious endeavour, especially if you need to adjust the tiles to meet the measurements of your wall. Plastic wall cladding on the other hand has a tongue and groove grip, which makes them easy to install onto your walls with the aid of adhesive solution.

How to Clean Cladding

Plastic wall cladding is much easier to clean and maintain than tiling, but this doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t stick to a regular cleaning regime at least once a week. Here are a few tips on how to keep your cladding nice and clean.

What You Will Need

To keep your cladding free from dirt and grime, a cloth and a good amount of warm, soapy water is all you really need. As long as you can reach the entire surface of your wall cladding with ease, a thorough scrubbing should only be needed once a week.

How to Clean Your Plastic Wall Cladding

Once you have everything you need, start to cover the entire surface of your wall cladding with the soapy water. It’s best practise to cover as much of the area as you can, as this will prevent any patches of mould from growing in isolated areas, which may begin to spread to other walls if not properly treated.

Give the water some time to soak into any marks or stains on your walls (a few minutes should be fine) and begin to remove the soap with fresh water. Once the soap has gone, dry your walls with a cloth to prevent damp.
