Why Should You Have Your Solar Panels Cleaned?
In cases where solar panels are exposed to debris, dust, pollen, leaves or bird droppings, the buildup can interfere with their efficiency. Solar panels work by harnessing energy directly from the sun, and if a significant part of the panel is obstructed, less light can be absorbed and used for energy. In order to keep your solar panels operating at maximum efficiency, it’s best to have them cleaned by a professional, and is especially important if the solar panels on your property are flat. Over time, water puddles on the surface of flat solar panels, leaving behind grime on the surface when it evaporates. In addition, various debris settles on these panels and negatively impacts their performance.
How Often Do Solar Panels Have to Be Cleaned?
We recommend having your solar panels cleaned at least every 6 months, but even more often if your roof is frequently exposed to dirt and debris. In between cleanings, rain can wash away some of the buildup; however, if there is more build-up than the rain can disburse, this will start to affect performance, especially if you are located downwind of a factory, busy highway or agricultural field. In these cases, having your solar panels cleaned more than once every 6 months is ideal for maximum performance.
What Does Solar Panel Cleaning Involve?
Our solar panel cleaning service involves fully restoring the health of your solar panels by using water to remove any dirt and debris, along with a gentle soapy brush where needed to remove tougher built up residues. Your solar panels will be restored to full capacity, and clean up is always included in our service, leaving you with complete peace of mind.
Why Should You Consider Hiring a Professional Solar Panel Cleaner?
DIY solar panel cleaning is certainly an option, however, if you are inexperienced with navigating rooftops and challenging heights, it’s much safer to hire an experienced professional. Also keep in mind that unintentional damage to your solar panels caused by dropped items, improper foot placement or using the wrong cleaning solution can result in costly replacement and repairs.
