    I think some people here just use hand tools like garden trowels etc. What sort of access are you planning on using?

    A wire brush will remove moss off roof tiles.

    If it is asphalt strip shingles, like used typically in the New England area, do not use a high pressure hose to clean it off, this can damage your shingles. Also do not use a stiff broom to clean it off, as this will also damage shingles.

    There are companies that specialize on removing this in the New England area. They spray a cleaner on the roof first, let it work for a while, then come back with a low pressure spray to clean it off.

    Welcome pfaemaster & it's nice to see an active member on here from the other side of the pond :thumbsup:

    Softwashing seems very popular in the states. Do you do any softwashing yourself?
