A recent study allowed dust and debris to accumulate on a solar panel system for a duration of eight weeks. After the eight-week period results were recorded to test the difference in the output of power when the panels were cleaned completely versus when they had been exposed to the dust and dirt. It was found that the output of power from the dirty panels was reduced greatly, which if dust and contaminants continued to build up could lead to a massive power loss annually. Uncleansed solar panels will lead to a great loss of power output and efficiency and in some cases can even lead to non-compliance of solar regulations.

We can help. If you believe that the performance of your solar system is decreasing, we can provide advice and information on giving you the best solution. We can then arrange an inspection of the solar panels and provide an accurate quote.

When you have one of our experienced team members clean your solar panels you’re ensuring that they are being washed with de-ionised water. Cleaning panels with tap water can leave nasty residue on the panels which will result in the panels being worse off at the end of the process than when you first started. Cleaning with de-ionised water returns a much better result and it also ensures that the surface of the panel stays cleaner for much longer.

Well maintained solar panels are important as it increases the value and look of your property. Cleaning your solar panels will also promote a higher energy output, increases the life of your solar system and removes unwanted materials which can erode or damage the film on the panels. This can create a major headache for you in the future, and massive expenses if you require a replacement.

Solar Panel FAQs

You should take absolute care and caution if you plan to attempt cleaning your solar panels. The height of the solar panels make cleaning them a major safety issue as you will likely need to climb onto the top of your roof. You should also factor in the chemicals, equipment and whether the roofing materials are sturdy enough. We highly recommend leaving the solar cleaning to a professional service to avoid any injuries and damage to your panels or the roof.

There are many factors to consider in the case of how often you should have your panels washed. You need to consider the area that you live, the amount of debris, rain, dust or other contaminants which frequently land on the solar panels. Maintaining the panels could be needed less or more frequently. We would generally consider 6-12 months to be an adequate timeframe between services.

No! You won’t need to do anything to prepare. All we ask is that you remove any obstacle that may block us from accessing your roof and panels. The rest is up to us!
