I am going to be replacing my kitchen floor very soon with the vinyl planks. They say they are 100% waterproof! but my question refers to the border. Waterproofing the floor is great, but if the water runs to the edge, it will just seep into the wall. It there someway to maybe seal the baseboard, or the 1/4 round so the edge is waterproof so it can help save the wall from water damage? I'm not wanting to make a pool out of the floor, but just looking to save the wall in case enough water gets on the floor to travel to the edge.

Have never been concerned too much with perimeter. If you are concerned you could apply a thin bead of caulking on the bottom of the base.
Silicone is harder to work with but would probably be best since it remains more flexible
Thank you
