    Hi all

    I have a 1930s house that has not seen much TLC for a long time. Sadly it is covered in pebbledash that is a pain to get off. It is very dirty just under the roof - please see the attached picture.

    How on earth do I clean this? It's a sort-of dark muck. We have a scaffold in place at the moment so now has to be the right time to do it. I am told that a power washer would clean off the muck but make life a lot worse as it might damage the pebbledash - so what is the right way to do it? If I need a fungicidal wash, then which one is best?

    Thanks!

    If it's just that strip - scrubbing brush and a bucket of water :)
    Go carefully and stop if stones are dislodged.
