Default painting a rubber roof

I have a small flat rubber roof with a drain in the middle that I would like to paint with a urethane elastomer. It is white rubber with a lot of black stains on it from sitting water. What would be the best way to clean this for prepping?
Thank you.

I use a lot of Ames products for roofing and waterproofing. I use a leaf blower to clean the area and make sure it's completely dry. I then put down one coat of their super primer if I'm going over an existing rubber roof. After that dries for about an hour, I roll or spray on a coat of maximum stretch. That will give your white rubber roof about 7-10 years of new life. Make sure you have two dry days with temps of at least 50F for everything to dry properly. If you need more info feel free to post pics.
