Can you walk on a polycarbonate sheet?  

In general, most polycarbonate sheeting products are not designed to support the weight of a person walking on them, and doing so can cause damage or cracking. It’s always best to check with the manufacturer or an expert installer before walking on any polycarbonate roofing or sheeting. Use a secure ladder or scaffold system to avoid damage or injury if you need to access your roof or other structures for maintenance or cleaning.   

How can you clean a polycarbonate sheet?  

There are a few options to consider. One of the easiest and most effective ways is to use warm soapy water and a soft cloth or sponge. You can also use a mild household cleaner that is safe for use on plastic surfaces but be sure to avoid any harsh chemicals or abrasive materials that could scratch or damage the sheeting. When cleaning polycarbonate sheeting, it’s important to rinse thoroughly with clean water and avoid using high-pressure water or steam cleaners, as these can also cause damage to the sheeting. With proper cleaning and maintenance, your polycarbonate sheeting can stay clear and bright for years.  


Here is a list of things to use to clean a polycarbonate sheet:  

  1. Mild soap or detergent: A solution of mild soap or detergent and water effectively cleans a polycarbonate sheet. Mix a small amount of soap or detergent with warm water and use a soft cloth or sponge to clean the sheet.

  2. Microfiber cloth: A microfiber cloth is an excellent tool for cleaning polycarbonate sheets. It’s soft and gentle on the surface and won’t scratch or damage the material.

  3. Water hose: If you have a large polycarbonate sheet or a high roof, you can use a water hose to rinse off any dirt or debris. Be careful not to use too much water pressure as it can damage the material. 

  4. Soft bristle brush: A soft-bristled brush can help remove stubborn stains or debris from the surface of a polycarbonate sheet. Be gentle and avoid using a brush with hard or abrasive bristles that can scratch the material.    


Avoid harsh chemicals, abrasive materials, or tools that scratch or damage the polycarbonate sheet. Also, always test any cleaning solution or tool on a small, inconspicuous area of the sheet first to ensure it won’t damage the material.
