Zep Clear Shell Mildew Inhibitor

We picked up a bottle at Home Depot to clean the inside of our MoHo. It is suppose to protect for up to 18 months as well. It states the product can be used on awnings as well. I've sent an email inquiring about EPDM roofs as it also lists it can be used on rubber. It did a very nice job on inside and if I can use on the roof it will make a great addition to my maintenance products. We use Awesome for most everything else but not sure about using on EPDM either. Anyway thought I'd share our results with this product.

Thank you for posting this. I've been searching for the ingredient in mold killing products and your post provided the link.

Chitosan - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia I don't have any idea about it's use on EPDM but it's seems it would be harmless. Hopefully someone will jump in with information for you.

Soon as I here back from Zep I'll post. The back of our curtains had a few spots where rain had gotten on them. I didn't scrub too hard but it did remove some of it. Based on what I've read I guess you could spray the entire backing in advance and eliminate a future problem. When we get our new RV I'm going to treat the entire thing just to prevent any issues.

Sorry, I don't get it? What is this product suppose to protect? or Do? If you have mold in your MH you have moisture and or water entering your MH from somewhere. Your health is at stake.
Thanks, Tim

Here is the response I rec'd today:

Thank you for contacting us. The Clear Shell Mold & Mildew Inhibitor is safe for use on awnings and an EPDM rubber roof without disturbing the adhesive.

I hope this information is of help. If you have any additional questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at zephelp.commercial@zep.com .

Thank you,
Zep Commercial

I've got some very dirty slide covers so this should be interesting to see the results. If this slows down the roof mildew/mold process in between cleaning I'll be very pleased.
