Removing Stains From Roof
LESLIE: Dennis in Georgia, you’ve got The Money Pit. What can we help you with today?
DENNIS: Yes, ma’am. I’m having trouble getting stains off my roof. I’ve applied Wet & Forget twice within the last three months and it still has not come off.
TOM: Alright. What kinds of stains are these? Because Wet & Forget is designed to kill algae and mold. I wonder if you’ve got something besides that.
DENNIS: Well, I had my whole front yard reworked and I had some trees cut down. Ten oaks in all. And I just cannot get the stain off.
TOM: Yeah, you might have some tree droppings or something else on there that’s causing this, sap and that sort of thing.
DENNIS: Yes, sir.
TOM: Hmm. Well, one of the things – one other thing I might try is a produced called JOMAX. And it works pretty well at cleaning up pretty gross spaces. I used it recently on a picnic table that had really discolored. And simply by applying the JOMAX and then cleaning with a pressure washer, we were able to make it very attractive once again.
So, it’s called J-O-M-A-X – JOMAX – made by the Zinsser Company. Give that a try and let us know how you make out, Dennis.
DENNIS: OK. Where can I buy this at?
TOM: Home centers, hardware stores. Pretty readily available. And if you use a pressure washer, just take it easy. You don’t want to poke holes in that roof or wear off the coating.
