Why do you need to clean your solar panels?

When it comes to your solar panels, you want to keep them clean and using energy as efficiently as possible! Unfortunately, after a while, dirt and other external factors start such as dust, grime and bird droppings can begin to collect on the surface. This can mildly decrease the efficiency of the solar panels. As a result it will take a greater amount of input energy to achieve the same level of output energy in the form of electricity or hot water. This effect is considered to be quite minor.  However the thing to look out for is possible damage to the solar panel surface over the longer term from a build up of this debris.

Solar panels should last for a very long time, and taking care of them will ensure that longevity. That’s why cleaning solar panels regularly is a good idea! Whilst a decent downpour of rain from time to time will get rid of most of the buildup of dirt and debris, only a proper clean will remove all residue. The jury is out on whether keeping the panels clean will reduce power bills, but it makes sense to aim for efficiency and carry out regular maintenance. Keeping your panels clean will also help to maintain the value of your property and decreases the chance of permanent damage to the panels in the long term.

Will a rainstorm do the same thing as a professional cleaner?

Unfortunately, although the rain might help or soften the dirt and grime that has accumulated, it will never get rid of it! Rainstorms also never seem to arrive when we need them! That’s why it’s important to have someone with experience do the job for you on a semi-regular basis. Once to twice per year should be ample.

How are solar panels cleaned?

Solar panels are both rugged and fragile, if that makes sense! Whilst they are designed to withstand the extremes of weather, and generally do, the surface is glass all the same. Scratching the glass using the wrong cleaning method may void warranties. That would be disastrous. That’s why the best care needs to be taken when cleaning them. Crystal Clear Commercial Cleaning uses a Norwex soft mop to clean the panels. This technique allows for the best clean, without any damage being done to the panels. This method is gentle and effective and means you will be getting an expert level clean. This is all while knowing that your panels are being respected and treated gently! For this we need only water for a perfect clean. So you don’t need to worry about harsh chemicals causing any damage to the solar panel surface, or the environment.
