Solar Panel Cleaning

Maximize Comfort and Savings with Solar Panel Cleaning

At Wash Me Solar, we’re committed to helping you protect your solar investment. But we’re also here to help keep you and your family safe too!

With the large population growth we are seeing all over Utah, it seems like every city is a construction zone with dirt and dust flying everywhere.  Your solar panels are oftentimes the landing spot for much of that dust.  To ensure optimal performance and maximize the return on your solar investment, regular maintenance is essential.  Enter Wash Me Solar – your trusted partner in solar panel cleaning.  With a dedication to excellence, cutting-edge technology, and a commitment to customer satisfaction, Wash Me Solar delivers comprehensive benefits that set us apart in the industry.

Debunking the Myth: Solar Panels Need More Than Rainwater for Cleaning

Your solar salesperson might have told you that you don’t need to do any maintenance on your solar panels.  While it is true that rainwater will wash away surface level dust, it is Not True that rainwater will clean off all of the gunk that gets on your panels or that they will stay clean by themselves.  Also, spraying them off using hard water from a hose can cause what’s called scaling, or calcium deposits on the panels.  When’s the last time you sprayed off your black car with a hose and when it dried, it looked better?

Maximize Efficiency and Longevity with Regular Solar Panel Maintenance

Like every major purchase you make, be it your home or a car, solar panels also require some maintenance to keep them operating at maximum efficiency and protected from the elements or from critters and birds that will do harm to them.  Clean panels optimize sunlight absorption and minimize obstructions, maximizing your solar efficiency and production by up to 30%.  Regular cleanings guarantee optimal performance year-round, helping you achieve a faster return on your investment.  Moreover, solar panel cleaning by Wash Me Solar is not just about enhancing energy production – it’s also about prolonging the lifespan of your solar investment. Over time, dirt, debris, and environmental contaminants can accumulate on the surface of your solar panels, leading to degradation and diminished performance. By implementing a regular cleaning regimen, we help protect your panels from corrosion, erosion, and other forms of damage, ensuring that they continue to operate at peak efficiency for years to come.

Pure Water Cleaning: Safe and Effective Solar Panel Maintenance by Wash Me Solar

At Wash Me Solar, we clean your panels with a Reverse Osmosis PURE water system that removes all of the minerals and turns our water into a soft water system. We don’t use any solvents, soaps or detergents to scrub them, as this can void your manufacturer’s warranty and block UV rays from hitting your panels and preventing optimal solar production.  We only use a solar specific water-fed nylon brush and our PURE water system.  When completed, your panels will be spotless, residue free and operating at peak performance. 

Solar Panel Cleaning

Maintain optimal efficiency

Our experts at Wash Me Solar recommend cleaning your panels a minimum of 2-3 times per year to maintain optimal efficiency, but yet stay within a good budget.  We strongly recommend following a regular cleaning regimen based on the following intervals and logic.

1

Spring Cleaning

During snow falls here in Utah, the snow on your panels tends to melt before any other snow on your roof.  There is dirt inside snow and as it melts, the dirt tends to land on the panels and refreeze.  Over time, that dirt turns into a grimy paste that will not rinse off during a rain or from spraying it with a hose.  That grime requires a good scrubbing.  Our team will come and scrub off that winter grime and ensure your panels are spotless and operating at maximum efficiency.  Spring cleaning is a must!  And there’s no better time to get your panel’s cleaned and operating at maximum efficiency than during the Spring-time when homeowners are building up their energy credits to pay for your summer air conditioning bills.

2

Fall Cleaning

All that dust flying around our homes during Summer’s commercial and residential construction has a large impact on your solar panel performance. 

We strongly recommend a Fall cleaning to get all of that summer dust cleaned off your panels before we hit Winter.  When snow hits your panels and starts to slide down them, if there is a lot of surface level dust on them, that dust can become almost like sandpaper, creating micro-scratches on the surface of your panels that can affect your panel’s production.  Cleaning off that dust before Winter snowfall is a must!

3

Optional Summer Cleaning

In cities under constant construction with large amounts of dust, we recommend adding a third Summer cleaning to keep your panels operating at maximum efficiency during the hot days of Summer when you need your panels operating at their highest efficiency.
