i wouldnt personally.....i used an extending pole with a bit of plastic on it and scraped away....there has been a recent post on here about that job..its better if its after a long dry spell...and it can be quite tough to scrape it off....but great fun to send it tumbling down the roof...

Could tape a good quality car scraper on a pole? Not tried scraping moss of, but I have a pole with car scraper taped on, for scraping off seagull mess that covers a shop sign that I clean.

great idea ....if i get another i will get the duct tape out....it does sound as though it will work ..i have only done a few mind you...but ...dont push the tiles up whilst scrubbing as some dont want to come back down....:eek:

You can use a wfp to clear moss off roofs tiles as I often do (single storey mainly) as you can either fit a really stiff brush on the wfp pole or I've even found progutter tools handy for the task. Just have to remember if doing it by ladders then make sure you are using ladder safety devices so the ladder doesn't slip backwards or sideways.




Hi. Do you know if I can use wfp to clean moss off the roofs? If no what is the best way of doing this as part of my service?

Can You tell which gardiner brush is the best for that job which I can attach to wfp and also another gardiner brush for cleaning the fascias(into corners)- just below gutters if you know what I mean...

Any stiff brush with an euro thread would do or you can also use a brush with an acme thread if you stick one of these on a spare plastic angle adapter. http://www.gardinerpolesystems.co.uk/acatalog/the-reach-around-dual-tool-gooseneck-adaptor.html


You could also adapt a wide wire brush to fit on a wfp too http://www.wire-brush.co.uk/wirebrushstore/cat_280096-Wire-Brooms-Scrubs.html


I've found for fascias etc a stiff radius sill brush fitted with wide fan jets handy to get into awkward bits. http://www.gardinerpolesystems.co.uk/acatalog/The-Super-Lite--Radius-Sill-Brush-Flat-Trim-Stiff-Bristles--Red--BRUSH_SLSILL_DTSTIFF.html
