Solar Panel Cleaning
Our equipment is tried and tested to be the best available on the market.
We use purified water which contains no chemical detergents that could damage the panels and leaves no impurities, so it will dry clear with no watermarks or stains.
Along with the purified water we use a specially designed brush head which is non-abrasive and removes all dirt, dust and debris without scratching or damaging the panels.
The brush head is attached to our telescopic pole system that can reach up to 45ft, so we are able to reach the panels from the ground without the need for us to use ladders or walk along your roof to gain access.
Why have your solar panels cleaned?
Solar panels work by allowing light into the solar cells. The more light that hits a panel, the more power it will generate. Due to the upwards angle of solar panels, they are more prone to bird droppings and a build-up of general dust and dirt that does not wash off with just rain. This reduces the amount of light hitting the panel and reduces its output. As the projected energy figures claimed by solar panel manufacturers and installers are based on the optimum performance of clean solar panels, this build-up of dirt can adversely affect the panel’s ability to meet those projections. So it is important to clean solar panels in order to protect and maintain your investment. Regular solar panel cleaning will also help you to make the most of the government feed-in tariff.
While solar panel cleaning in the UK is relatively new, in other parts of the world solar panel cleaning has been around for a long time. Early adopters of the technology soon realised that if their solar panels were not cleaned regularly, they would not run at their optimum performance.
Solar panel warranty
Some solar panel manufacturers and installation companies have made solar panel cleaning a condition of their warranty. Should you have problems with your solar panels, if you do not have proof of regular solar panel cleaning by profressionals, your solar panels may not be covered by the warranty.
