Cleaning rubber roof

Any suggestions for cleaning the rubber roof on my Dolphin? It's got mold on it & I tried the recommended cleaner & it didn't work. I was thinking maybe a mixture of bleach & Simple Green...? Thanks for any input.

Shower cleaner with mildew remover. Spray it on on a cloudy day or in the shade as
it has to stay wet on the roof surface for a short time, 10 - 15 minutes, then rinse off
well.

First I use Mr. Clean, and it has done a great job for me. After drying the roof, I'll spray with #303 for some additional protection.

Try a Magic Eraser. It worked better than any of the detergent/bleach mixtures did for me. Mold and grime just wiped away, it did an amazing job on my fiberglass roof. Awesome on awning and slide toppers too.

When washing be VERY careful if the product has bleach in it. Rinse the sidewalls immediately with copious amounts of water!

X2 on Magic Eraser. Can get it for a sponge mop & stand up while cleaning the roof.

I got a 2 yr old rubber roof that I have had a tough time trying to keep clean. The mold spots have wanted to stay no matter what I do to it UNTIL........

I was talking to the people that installed the roof and asked then about using 30 Second Cleaner. They said that it works and does it ever.

I put it straight strength in one quart garden sprayer and sprayed the roof and let set for about 5 min. Then used a wide angle pressure washer set a about 2000 lbs. I then washed the roof and WOW extreme clean without all the scrubbing and hard work.

It did not bother the finish on the side walls as I pressure wash the rest of the unit after the roof was finished.

Try it you'll like it. Worked for me. T he product is called 30 second cleaner and you an get it at Home Depot or Lowes.
