See How We Clean Solar Panels

How we clean your solar panels

  • We confidently clean both roof and ground mounted solar arrays utilising our purified water-fed poles.
  • The purified water is housed within our vans and then pumped along the hoses to the poles.
  • At the end of each pole is a specialist soft brush, specifically designed to clean solar panels.
  • Water jets are then expelled from the brush allowing for cleaning to commence.

When necessary, a site visit may be carried out by one of our trained assessment team to establish safe access for cleaning the panels, as sometimes a powered access machine may be required to complete the clean safely. Our staff have undergone the necessary training, as holders of the IPAF licence, it allows them to safely operate this specialist equipment. It may be that we need to utilise safety harnesses on static lifelines while working at height, our specialist team can discuss these options with you in more detail.

An individual risk assesment and method statement (RAMS) is tailored to each job and completed upon acceptance of your quote.

Purified water & regular cleaning

Manufacturers DO NOT recommend the use of harmful chemicals or detergents to clean solar panels. However, they do advise regular cleaning using purified water, especially before the onset of summer and winter. Manufacturers also state that regular cleaning will preserve their limited warranty and help to maintain the optimum output performance of the solar panels.

The harshness of untreated water will leave marks behind containing mineral deposits, especially in hard water areas. Untreated water marks can actually attract dirt as well as being an inefficient cleaning process.

Here at Solar Panel Cleaning Services Ltd, we only use purified water to clean your solar panels. This means that the minerals have been removed from the water using two processes. Firstly reverse osmosis, this is then followed by de-ionisation, leaving behind a purified water.

We provide all of our own purified water for the job in hand. If water is required on-site we shall advise you of this during the site visit.

We have NO need for harmful and abrasive chemicals or detergents, therefore offer an Eco-Friendly cleaning process. This is delivered to you both safely and efficiently with excellent results, ensuring you are getting the very most from your investment.

Can I clean them myself?

NEVER attempt to clean solar panels yourself.

There is always a risk of damage and inefficient cleaning, but most importantly, a risk of electric shock.

It is advisable to use a professional solar panel cleaner to undertake the cleaning of your panels, as they will be fully trained, have the correct equipment and be properly insured to carry out the job.
