Seeing Spots !!!!

Guys , went on the roof for the scheduled "inspection" (4 mos. ) My TPO roof was covered with little gray spots (about 1/4" dia. ) !!! Spic N' Span wouldn't touch it ... Felt around the roof all over , everything appears sound , caulk OK , although that's going to be replaced soon with Eternabond tape... No soft spots .... But all those Spots ... Got the roof cleaned , save those million spots ... Now wondering if that's normal or should I clean it with something "stronger" ??? Or coat it with some kind of special paint ??? Anybody else seeing Spots ???

This is usually mildew. To tell for sure, mix 75% water 25% clorox. spray a small area. if it goes away, it is mildew. Rinse well with a lot of water when thru. I told my customers to just ignore this. If it really bothers you, it can be cleaned with this mixture. Be very careful that you don't let it run down the side of the coach and stain the side. Just keep flushing with a water hose.

I would be very careful of what I used on the roof. Contact the roof manufacture or read the literature in the RV owners packet. Chlorine bleach can have a bad effect on some roofs.

If it is just stained, who really cares. No one sees the roof anyway.

TX, Thanks !!! I just freaked when I saw all the spots .... didn't know what it was ... thought the worse (roof cancer) ... was why I carefully checked Every part of the roof ... If it's not a problem , I'll just leave it alone ... Trying to nurse this roof along as best I can ... TPO is certainly NOT my favorite material , and was not the roof I was told it was , by the dealer ...who outright lied about many things just to make the sale ...
