Solar Panel Cleaning

Solar panels generally rely on the rain and a decent tilt angle to stay clean. However, dust, bird droppings, mineral deposits and sea spray can all build up over time, directly impacting the efficiency of your panel. This is why we recommend regular solar panel cleaning, to keep your system running at its most efficient.

Solar Panel Cleaning

It is important not to use harsh abrasive products or cleaning powders when cleaning solar panels. These products may scratch the glass on the solar panel. Scratches affect performance in much the same way as the dirt you were trying to remove – casting shadows and hindering panel performance. Likewise, detergents and other cleaning chemicals can leave streaks on the glass, defeating the purpose of cleaning them. Many suburbs of Melbourne suffer from hard water issues. When cleaning solar panels with the garden hose, be sure you aren’t rinsing with hard water. Hard water stains build up over time, in the form of mineral deposits. These build ups end up affecting the performance and longevity of your panels.

The solution is the cleaning power of pure filtered water. Our reach and wash system produces incredibly pure water. Pure water dries clear and streak free, and will remove mineral deposits and sea salt with regular maintenance. We use soft nylon brushes to agitate the dust and grime, and pure water to rinse to a perfectly clear finish.
