cleaner

Hi all
Does anyone have a rubber roof cleaner they prefer or are they all the same. Should I always put a sealer on it after a good cleaning or is once a year good. Please give me your 2 cents worth .

I use Dicor's cleaner and protectant. Easy spray on. I use a sponge mop and bucket to first damp mop the roof to remove any dirt, then, working on about 6 square foot at a time, spray on the cleaner and mop off with clean water, changing the bucket full several times. After the roof is clean I start over with the protectant and damp mop, just spraying on the same size area and spreading it around. As far as using the bucket instead of a hose, I use that to keep the white stuff from running down the sides of the coach. I have the DW help by standing on the ground and I lower the bucket on a rope, she dumps the dirty water and refills the bucket, which I hoist back up.

Here's mine, Until Dicor began selling roof care products they recommended Spic N Span for cleaning the roof. Someone at Dicor recognized there was money to be made selling retail roof cleaning products, as other companies were already doing. Thus their roof care & maintenance webpage was changed to this: Dicor - The Components RVs are Born With
Dicor also states that only the washing is recommended: . http://www.dicor.com/resources/PDF/R...bber_Roofs.pdf

Cleaning: I treat the roof much like the kitchen floor.. Only two or three major differences..

Cleaner: Spic & Span (Alt: any good floor cleaner)
Kitchen: MOP Roof: Van Wash Brush (This is a car wash brush with a long handle) A window washer's brush could be used too.

Rinse: Kitchen: Re-mop clear water, Roof, Garden hose & MR. Clean car wash thing

Kitchen: Mop toward door, Roof, Ladder.

That about covers it.

Coatings/sealers.. I do not use but DiCor would be my recommendation since they make the roof.

I use a solution of Dawn detergent (to cut grime) with a bit of bleach (to kill mold/mildew) on our TPO roof. Wet entire roof to remove dust/loose dirt, work in small sections scrubbing with bristle brush, rinse thoroughly & move on to the next section. Once a yr keeps the black streaks at bay.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?
