WhiteHawk Roof Cleaning

Decided to tackle the job of cleaning the rubber roof this weekend. I expected this to be a hard job.

I was so surprised at how easy it was and how good it came out. Nothing more than the spray, a sponge mop, and a bucket of water for rinsing.

I bought this stuff and it did great...

These are some pictures showing just how well it came out. It was pretty dirty looking.

There are a few light areas of blackish spots remaining. I understand these happen to just about all rubber roofs and they don't really affect the performance of the roof. In any case, it came out much better than I expected and it wasn't hard at all. The cleanser just stripped the grime right off. I tried with plain water just to see the difference and almost nothing came off that way. Wow!

Next week I am going to freshen up the seals with the Alpha Systems sealant. Hopefully, that job will go just as well.

By the way, the product says to air dry but I decided to do a thorough rinse off. I didn't want to leave the chemicals on the roof after clean since Alpha Systems says UV protectant is not needed and could in fact do harm. I doubt there was any harm in my cleaning job but I thought a good rinse was the safer plan.

Looks like new again, but then again it's only a year old Wish I could get my 9 year old roof looking like yours!

It's amazing how dirty a roof can get in a short period of time, especially camping and/or storing a TT under trees.

True. We've had this RV since 12/2012 so about 20 months.

I've cleaned the roof before with just soapy water but it never cleaned up as nicely as this time. Hopefully, I did no harm using that cleanser. I rinsed it off thoroughly. I just wanted it very clean and not just kind of clean. This did the trick.
