Sometimes it feels like there are never ending things on your to do list. Wash the dishes, do the laundry, clean up the house, repeat. Well, we can help you cross one thing off your to do list when you get a professional solar panel cleaning for fall.
Why do I need a professional solar panel cleaning?
There are so many reasons you should get a professional solar panel cleaning instead of doing it yourself. First, if your solar panels are on your roof, do you really want to clean them yourself? You have to climb all the way up there, and then do the work of trying to clean them. You’re not trained to do that. And you don’t want to get hurt.
But, your solar panels need to be cleaned to perform their best. So, you should leave it to the professionals.
Can’t the rain clean my solar panels?
You’ve probably heard that rain can clean off dust and debris from your solar panels. But, that’s not quite true. Sure, rain washes away some of the build-up. But is it really a good clean?
Rain water is not enough, and doesn’t come down in a stream. It comes down in individual droplets. So, when it hits your solar panels, it may move some dirt around, but doesn’t really clean anything. Plus, rain water contains a lot of dust and dirt from the air, so it leaves behind its own residue. With that in mind, it doesn’t make a lot of sense to rely on the rain to “clean” your solar panels.
With a professional clean, no streaks will be left behind. This is because we use the right tools and filtered water to give solar panels the cleaning they need.
Does it really matter if my solar panels are clean?
You probably don’t think about cleaning the outside of your house very often. So, you’re likely wondering if your solar panels need to be cleaned, or if this is just another thing you’re being told you need but really don’t.
It actually is really important to keep your solar panels clean. Any barrier between your solar panels and the sun will affect the power they generate—even with just a thin layer of dirt and debris. When that barrier is there, your solar panels have to work harder, and your energy bill will start running up again. One of the reasons you got solar panels was the savings, so it doesn’t do you any good if they are dirty. You won’t be saving as much money as you could.
