Do these look like they are self-cleaning panels to you?
Some of our clients have been told they would not have to clean their panels. The rain would wash away the filth. But dirt and grime collects and adds a film over them.
And what about the lichen that may grow? There is also pollen. It sticks to the panel in little yellow spots and even when cleaned off can leave a residue mark.
Cleaning your solar panels regularly will increase the output to your system. Even a small amount of dirt or lichen on your panel can decrease the output efficiency.
Imagine looking through dirty glasses all the time… It makes it hard to see through.
Then you clean them and how bright everything suddenly is!
It is the same with your solar panels.
Imagine just how much more rays can be soaked up if the panels are clean…
There is a certain process you need to follow when cleaning the panels on the roof.
To stay safe from slipping, we start with the lower panels, working from one end and to the other. Then we make our way to the top row of panels and stand above the row so we are not standing in the water used to clean the panels.
Always work either from bottom to top or across the roof and keep ahead of the water you are putting on the roof to clean the solar panels.
This is not a D.I.Y. task, as it requires safety equipment to work on the roof and has a high risk factor if you do not know how to manoeuvre around the roof and solar panels, avoiding the excess water.
Avoid the risk and get those panels soaking up the rays again. Call in the professionals and see what we can do for you. Combing a gutter clean with a solar panel clean gets you a special rate on the solar panel clean.
