How do you clean solar panels?
You might be underutilizing your solar panels and paying more energy costs than you should if the solar panels on your rooftop need cleaning. Here is our take on the most common question we are asked: ‘how do you clean solar panels?’
On the off chance that you don’t clean your solar panels regularly, they can lose as much as half of their efficiency.
This implies you need to source greater power from the grid and take care of higher energy bills. It is money down the drain and the dirt, grime, dampness, bird droppings and fungal growth can erode the exterior of the panels and render them ineffective over time. In the event that you are living close to a highway or construction site that is prone to dust, cleaning your solar panels regularly is a great idea.
How do you clean solar panels yourself?
You can most likely clean the solar panels yourself. However, we won’t recommend cleaning roof top mounted panel yourself as climbing and moving about on the roof can be perilous and requires special safety equipment.
So how do you clean solar panels?
Cleaning the panels with normal hard water and harsh cleansers can lead to irreversible harm to the panels. Advanced systems like Sol Tech cleaning utilizes filtered water and special cleaning agents to make your panels sparkle like new. They also utilize low pH cleaners, gentle and eco-friendly detergents and special wipers and brushes to remove all obstructions until the boards are flawlessly clean.
