A simple mix of water and bleach will do the trick if it is not super bad

After cleaning get a piece of zinc along the ridge to keep moss at bay

There is a 2 inch wide zinc strip you can nail to the top of your roof for moss control. Menards sells it.

Wet-and-Forget is what I use on my composite deck and the label says it works on all types of roofs. Spray it on and let it slowly eat the moss away. Ace Hardware and other similar stores carry it. Works great and is safer than bleach on vegetation and painted surfaces.
