Frequently Asked Questions About Solar Panel Cleaning
Do solar panels need to be cleaned?
The answer to this question, like so many others, is, “It depends.” Some manufacturers claim you never need to clean them. But we know that a good cleaning can help with the effectiveness of the panels.
How often should I have my solar panels cleaned?
There are no general guidelines about how often you should clean your panels. Your timeline will more so depend on your environment more than anything.
For example, if you have construction near by with earth movers and backhoes kicking up dust near your panels, you might need yearly cleanings. Or, if you’re located somewhere without a lot of tree debris or drippings and pollutants, your cleanings could span every few or five years.
Can’t I just clean my solar panels myself?
Working at heights raises safety concerns, so there is some risk involved in cleaning your solar panels. If you don’t have experience working at heights and if you don’t have the right safety equipment in place, this is not a job you want to take on yourself.
Additionally, you made an investment when you purchased your panels. You’ll want to ensure your cleaning is performed properly so the panels don’t take damage. A professional knows how to clean your panels well and safely.
How much does solar panel cleaning cost?
Solar panel cleaning costs are dependent on the number of panels you have, the amount of cleaning required and other factors. To get a free quote for your specific situation, we encourage you to reach out to our team.
