Welcome to the forums!

What is on the ceiling that needs cleaning?
Generally ceilings don't get dirty enough to need cleaning [other than smoke or grease] It's usually best to repaint the ceiling.

You should be able to paint it with a brush and roller. Even if you wash the ceiling, it will probably end up blotchy looking.

If you can provide a pic or better describe the texture, we can tell you which roller nap sizes will work best.

While I almost always spray ceilings on new construction, I rarely ever do any spraying in an occupied dwelling.

Just prime the entire ceiling and apply two finish coats of paint from Sherwin Williams and be done with it. Your work will look professional. The roller you use will be of utmost importance!! Covering EVERYTHING with texture ceilings is important as well. Picture please.
