Rust-Oleum JOMAX ® Roof Cleaner and Mildew Stain Remover Review:
|GAL Roof Clean/Remover|
The Rust-Oleum JOMAX ® Roof Cleaner and Mildew Stain Remover is a DYI consumer grade roof cleaning product that was designed to be added with bleach and water to clean roofs, as it explains on the Rust-Oleum website this product is designed to “Easily remove unsightly streaks, dirt and mildew from your roof” and is safe on both siding and trim.
The manufacture suggests that this roof wash product can handle the following tasks but we feel a bit differently.
• Removes black streaks, dirt and mildew stains from roof shingles fast
• Kills mold & mildew on tile, slate, and other non-porous roofs
• Great for asphalt, wood, metal, composition roofs and more
• One gallon makes 20 Gallons of solution – enough for a 2,000 sqft roof
After reviewing the JOMAX ® product video and following the manufactures recommendations and instructions we found that the product did not preform as the video suggested. Possibly with longer dwell times (the time the product stays on the roof before rinsing) and a strong percentage of the JOMAX ® roof cleaning product we might have been able to achieve better results.
From a professional roof cleaner perspective the reaction time of the product was quite slow and following the manufactures instructions to rinse after 5 minutes did not seem to allow the product time to work. Based on our experience we would have gotten similar results if not better results using a bleach and water cleaning solution and would have been able to save the additional expense of this spray on roof cleaner additive.
Rust-Oleum suggests applying a second application of the JOMAX roof cleaner on moss or heavy mildew areas and from our experience with this product we feel if this roof cleaning solution is used this to clean anything beside very lightly stained or discolored roof growth you will have to apply several coats, many more than what is suggested or leave the solution on the roof for a much longer period than the instructions explain. We NOT suggest modifying or altering Rust-Oleum’s recommendations or instructions and did not attempt to either.
We also feel that if you are going to clean very dark roof algae or try to clean moss and lichen we suggest applying the JOMAX roof cleaner in several applications spanning several weeks in between applications. This may allow the product to work better to help kill the roof growth and possibly remove more roof staining.
Based on the personal results we have had following the manufactures recommended instructions we rate the Rust-Oleum JOMAX ® Roof Cleaner and Mildew Stain Remover a 1.5 out of 5.
