What do you clean your roof with.

The final numbers in our roof maintenance poll are:

  1. Total number who do nothing to roof: 7
  2. Total number who only clean their roof: 26
  3. Total number who clean and protect: 7


So, a total of 33 owners so some type of maintenance to their roof.

Now the new poll.

What do you clean your roof with?

Thought I would post back here one more time.
After sitting under all those trees for a month with leaves collecting up there and staining, this is what my roof looks like after I cleaned it when we got home. I didn't spend much time at it as I should have. Some of the stains are still evident.

It looks like you did a pretty good job to me Lloyd. I am doing a final fall cleaning and winterization on ours this week then into the shed it goes for winter.

I find that when I clean, there is some discoloration under the dirty spots. However, there is no need to get too aggressive trying to remove them. After a day uncovered, in the sun, the roof seems to come back to normal and bright.
Has anyone else experienced this?

We use a liquid all-purpose cleaner. Spic and Span powder was recommended to us, but we cannot seem to find it in the stores.
