Firstly lets look at how not to clean your panels…

It is not recommended by solar panel manufacturers to use chemicals to clean your panels. Tap water and rain water will not clean solar panels sufficiently to keep them running at maximum efficiency.

Using detergents to clean solar panels leaves a sticky microscopic film on the solar panel which actually attracts dirt and grime. Again, this will lead to your solar panels not running efficiently. 

But doesn’t the rain clean the solar panels?

Just like your car and anything else that lives outside without some kind of agitation the power of the rain is just not enough to remove contaminants and grime. Lichen, grease, grime and salt amongst other things adheres to your Solar Panels and before you know it no amount of rain will wash away the day to day spoils of living out in the environment…

We use specific de-ionising filters that clean your panels and leave them spotless and clear with no streaking. If possible we clean from ground level with a telescopic pole but if we are not able to reach them we will need to access the roof surface.
