Specialist cleaning of solar panels
Solar panel cleaning is a service requiring specialist knowledge and equipment.
We are experienced solar panel cleaners operating in Leeds providing a high quality service at affordable prices.
Solar panels collect solar power from the sun and actively convert that energy to electricity so anything that blocks the solar power will affect the performance of the solar panels.
How To Clean Solar Panels
Solar panels should be cleaned with pure water and NO detergents or abrasive materials used
Rainwater alone will simply not clean solar panels. Rainwater contains airborne dust particles that will settle and attach to the surface after the water has evaporated. This can, if left, lead to algae build up.
No detergents are used to ensure that no damage is caused to the solar cells and a special soft bristled solar panel brush will be used with pure water. Detergents also leave a sticky residue which attracts dirt and dust.
Even tap water from a hose contains minerals which leave behind hard water deposits which can block the sun meaning panels work less effectively.
Experts agree that dirty solar panels do not produce as much power as clean panels. That loss may range as high as 25% in some areas according to the National Renewable Energy laboratory.
When To Clean Solar Panels
Soalr panel cleaning can take place at any time of year and it is just as important to have clean panels during winter as it is in summer. This is because of the shorter days and fewer hours of sun, and solar panels are at their optimum efficiency during cold sunny days.
How Often Should Solar Panels Be Cleaned?
It is recommended that solar panels be cleaned on average every 6 months. It is even more economical for customers to arrange an ongoing solar panel cleaning service with Yorkshire Window Cleaners than it is for one-off cleans as we can offer discounted rates to regular customers.
