True Offseason Thread: Are there any plans to clean the Superdome?
I moved to New Orleans a few months ago (after the season) and I've never really noticed how dirty/nasty the Superdome's exterior gets. Do they usually give her a good powerwashing before the season or do they just doctor it up on TV?

It gets washed. Not sure how often. They will definitely have to do it this year because it's painted Mercedes Benz in 2 places.

Every year they pressure wash it just before the season. It looks like a serious job that takes several weeks.

Yep bright and clean for a little while then rapidly becomes dirty. Much like everything else in the city.

Never understood why they didn’t just make the entire thing gold.

They wash it every other year, but it gets filthy looking so quick.

Think they paid out the arse for some paint originally, when they did the heavy renovations 6 or 7 years ago whenever that was, that supposedly would not hold dirt but wick it away. It ended in a lawsuit I believe.

Funny, but I also think I heard that on this board, so who knows if it's true.

And I think what made it worse was during the lawsuit, there was no cleaning done so the roof really looked horrible. I suppose they did not want to wash away the evidence.

Its about a $100k job and is done every 2 years. The roof coating is made with a Kymax coating and is supposed to resist biological growth and dirt buildup, and retain its reflective value and color, which it doesn't.

Sounds like the same method they were hoping for to assist with the Hard Rock Collapse.

the boats from the river put out a lot exhaust that lands on the white dome. I've stood on top. its quite awesome.

There are/were some plans, a few months ago, to clean and repair the top. Not sure where that is right now.
