I'm 250 and walk on mine, no problems. Just be careful when walking around vents and AC's. Those are normally a bit weaker because of the cut outs.

I never have but I bet you can find some overpriced stuff at the local RV dealer. If it were me, and I'd wait for others to chime in because I haven't tried it, I would use a vinyl siding cleaner from the local big box home repair store.

I'm 180 and walk on my roof without issue. I never felt like it was even remotely close to being overloaded. The plywood is a good suggestion, just be EXTREMELY careful not to rip the roof. I just hit a tree on a less than 1 y/o 5er..... DRUM ROLL $11,000 repair! Thank you Mr. Insurance Man.

And that was just to replace the roofing vinyl. A small tear was all the damage that there was. It wasn't a catastrophic hit where they had to replace decking or siding or anything else.
