Chempace Roof Shield Cleans & Protects

To meet the growing demand for RV maintenance products, Chempace has launched Roof Shield, the next generation in their lineup of maintenance products.

Chempace CorpThe initial offering of Roof Shield includes a 100-ounce RV cleaner jug and a 100-ounce RV sealer jug presented in a convenient, ready-to-use bucket with and a bonus RV holding tank drop-In sample pack.

The RV roof cleaner removes black streaks, dirt, oxidants, and road film build-up, while the RV roof sealer protects from rain, sun, grime and prevents drying, cracking, and oxidation.

Both products are environmentally safe and are should be included on the list of must-have RV maintenance items, the company noted in a press release.

“The RV roof is one of the most overlooked items on most RVers maintenance list, the company noted. Yet, the roof represents a valuable investment and can result in hundreds to thousands in repair or replacement costs if left unattended. Utilizing Chempace’s new Roof Shield is an essential step to guarantee the long life of an RV investment,” said Rick Shall, Chempace CEO.

“The RV roof is often dreaded and the lack of maintenance is justified because it is not in plain sight,” he added.

“No longer does cleaning your RV roof have to be difficult or time consuming with Roof Shield it makes it easier to protect your roof—beginning with the included pail.”

Rubber and TPO (thermoplastic polyolefin single-ply roofing membranes) roofs are most susceptible to damage, and any roof left unattended will deteriorate and leak over time, said Shall.

Roof Shield RV Cleaner and RV Sealer work together to create a barrier between the roof and the elements to increase the overall protection from the elements and the sun’s UV rays while leaving the roof surface with easier to clean properties in the future, he explained.

Most rubber roofs are white in color for aesthetic purposes, but most importantly because white reflects sunlight and heat more efficiently than darker colors.

“The down side of white is it will never reach beyond 126 degrees, which is not hot enough to kill mold and mildew growth,” Shall explained.

“Variations in climate and weather may accelerate fungal growth and it is highly recommended to be cleaned at minimum four times a year depending on where you park or store your RV; followed by sweeping debris from the roof every week or two.”

Black and gray are the most common colors of mold and mildew stains, and are usually seen in small clusters, he added. But, in extreme cases, fungi can cover the entire RV roof and appear in other colors like yellow, purple, or pink.

According to Dr. Virginia Peart and Dr. James Kimbrough, of the University of Florida, they developed the “mildew square” to demonstrate that all fungi needs four elements to grow and thrive. They are spores, food source, temperature, and moisture. Of these, moisture and the food source is the most preventable component, Shall noted.

“It is preferable to sweep, instead of wash the RV roof, because simply rinsing the roof with water only leaves more moisture behind, which is one of the four elements in the mildew square,” he explained.

“Whereas, sweeping removes several of the conditions and requires less time to complete.

“We are constantly reviewing our products in line with the feedback received from our RV dealers and their RV customers,” said Shall.

“Chempace’s adapt our products to meet the growing appeal for the RV lifestyle which peaked this year at 8.9 million RVers.”

A Time to be Creative

I choose to live by Choice, not by chance; to make Changes, not excuses.
To be motivated, not manipulated; to be useful, not compete.
I choose self-esteem, not self-pity.
I choose to listen to my inner voice, not the random opinions of others.
