    Hi any advice on roof cleaning without a pressure washer we started a job for a customer yesterday and scraped by hand and is looking amazing as was covered in moss.
    However I want to spray something on it after to keep the moss at bay.
    Any suggestions please

    Many thanks

    I have a load of roofs that could be done - what did you scrape with ? I wondered can you get a VERY stiff brush for WFP

    Keep in mind that any brush you use will likely be fooked after cleaning a roof as tiles are very abrasive. A dutch hoe and a guaging trowel were my weapons of choice when I did a roof and they worked great.

    Yep. I made a thread on here ages back which might help you out. Its the only one I ever done, plenty to learn from for next time and may save you some bother.
