Dicor Roof Restore Systems

Be sure to clean your RV roof with a cleaner
that won't damage your roofing

Cleaning your RV's rubber (EPDM) roof will extend its life expectancy and make your RV look good. Cleaning is relatively easy if you conscientiously do so 3 or 4 times a year so that dirt and stains don't build up. Also, be careful about where you park your RV as some trees drop materials that can be oily, sticky or have a high chance of staining the roofing.

Rudy's Caution: Most important is to use the right cleaner. Some household cleaners and even products sold for RV maintenance contain petroleum distillates or citric ingredients. These chemicals will damage your roof membrane and shorten its life. Whether you choose Dicor's Rubber Roof Cleaner or another brand, be sure the products you use do not contain these harmful chemicals.

We also recommend applying Dicor Roof-Gard after cleaning your roof to help preserve your roof's condition even longer.

I have to wonder every time I read that. Before Dicor began selling roof cleaning/ maintenance products. their website said to wash the roof with Spic N Span twice a year. No other maintenance was required, no sealers, nothing; and the material would last at least as long as the warranty (10-12 years, depending on brand)

We have a BriteTek roof (which Dicor also sells). Newmar used to say to use Murphy's Oil Soap. I still use the oil soap and it works very well.

I pulled up the Material Safety Data Sheet for Dicor's roof cleaner. The active component is less than 1% potassium hydroxide. Murphy's Oil Soap also contains it. So does Lysol and interestingly enough, so do several skin and hair care products.
