The alpha roof documentation on my Flagstaff states not to use a UV inhibitor. Mine is newer though. It also says that Spic and Span is a good product to use for cleaning.

Bleach will clean and kill any alge, but it might also destroy your UV protection. I would coat it with a UV protector to be safe. Nice and clean looks alot better like new. You did a nice job, but a gal of UV protection is a lot cheaper then a new roof. It will also help keep it looking like that after your hard work.

Looking good!
Hope the bleach didn't run down the sides.( time to re-wax the unit)
