Lichen, Moss on good roof


I am trying to sell the house and one of the first things I hear is, gonna need a new roof soon. Look at that stuff.

There is nothing wrong with the roof.
But the moss and lichen are all over.
Anyone know of a way to remove it without using a pressure washer?
Any sprays?

Mixture of water and bleach.

(FWIW - installing ionzation bars along the ridge will help keep them from coming back)
