How do I get moss off the outside of my chimney?

This topic is available here on The Repair-Place forum
I have moss growing on my brick chimney. Is this bad? Should I remove it? How do I remove it so it won’t come back?
Scrape it off with a wide putty knife and then wire brush what’s left. You could treat the area with a mix of one part bleach and three parts water to try to deter new growth. Wear skin and eye protection when working with bleach. Or you could live with it. The moss will not hurt the brick.
