This will work for almost all of the flooring type products.

Prepare a solution consisting of 1 cup of ammonia, cup of non-chlorine all-purpose cleaner and gallon of cool water in a bucket designated for the task.


Apply the mixture to the area from which you wish to remove the Future floor polish. Use a mop or sponge that can be easily dipped into your cleaning bucket. Squeeze any excess liquid into your cleaning bucket.


Allow the mixture to stand on the affected area for roughly five minutes.

This thread motivated me. I opted for a product from Wal-Mart called "Quick Shine" by Holloway House, $5. It's supposed to be harder for high traffic areas. No special UV protection indicated though, so we'll see how it holds up. Decent gloss and feels really hard. I had seen a product at Lowes that was a special flooring finish and the label said it was good for fiberglass and had UV protectors. It was about $15. Don't remember the brand, and I wasn't up to going out of my way to Lowes today, so I got the Quick Shine. All the work was in cleaning and scrubbing the roof. Ugh. Applying the floor finish was a piece of cake.

Lori-
I hate having to wash the roof but one of my jobs was bridge construction inspection, heights don't bother me!!

We have the BriteTec roof and after 9 years ours looks like the OP's, and I DON'T use MopNGlow!

I need easier.
I use 303 on our BriteTek roof. I go to Dollar Tree and buy a $1 sponge mop, do the roof standing up and throw the mop away. Saves my knees and is inexpensive (cheap) too.

NOTHING, the manufacturer says that nothing is required. After all, the material is applied to commercial buildings and is expected to last 20+ years with NO maintenance.
I do use 303 on our BriteTek roof though.

We checked Lowes and didn't find anything that said it was good for fiberglass and had UV protectors. Any chance you could check again and post the name of the product that you had seen?

I was hallucinating (again, as usual--someone get me another beer). It was at Home Depot.

Product is Rejuvenate Floor Restorer and Protectant

It was $18 at HD. The web site also shows auto products.
Since I didn't get this, if someone else does try it, let us know how it works. It may not have any advantage over the others mentioned in this thread, and most of them are cheaper.

Can you use the Mop and Glo on a Fiberglass roof that has oxidation? Maybe something to remove the oxidation first?

Thanks

Guys,
I just use a roller made for paint to apply the mop and glow. Just like painting the ceiling but much easier. Same type of plastic pan that I use for paint. It works great. Easy to do and my knees say thanks.

You sound like a hard workin guy or a glutton for punishment. Hey now that you are all done with yours and rested how about stopping by my place and start on my MH. The pay is very poor but the beer is good.
I only use PLEDGE CLEAR and tried Mop and Dull but it failed after 6 months. It turns cloudy but the pledge did not.
