I use mainly wire brush , the cheap one costs £3.99 in Screwfix (pack of two) just enough for a 2-3 bed semi?! Ladders / ladder attachments and other safety equipment costs a lot more and is a must .

 

This ladder standoff is great to access the roof easily and safely , Bought it from USA lol , probably you can get something similar in here too

Harris patio brushes work well, however proceed with caution as wire brushes will scratch some tiles quite badly.

not worse than a jet wash ?! when you wire brush is a bit more visible since is not a consistent result ? at least that's how I see it

haven't and I don't think I will , it might be good just for a quick sweep may b ?!

 

every single tile needs to be cleaned properly and is not that easy to get the moss out from the gaps between the tiles , I sometimes use a table knife : )

 

here is a picture with me : P and the ladder stand-off ( bought from USA ) , the cheap wire brush and the table knife which is in my right pocket lol
