Wink...If your pressure washer is any good it will do the job for you.....Once you do it advise the client that due to the fact that moss/algae spores are already in the concrete/flags/blocks (or whatever you are cleaning) and after time it will always re appear they would be advised to spray a moss retardent on it.  If you do it you will have to comply with COSHH regs ect ect.....also if you leave it to them they will probably not do it and you will get the job again in 6 / 12 months.

Work smart...Not hard.
