There is a myth that solar panels are self-cleaned and that once you have installed them you can just forget about them. The panels are positioned in an angle so just let the rain wash them down and do the cleaning for you. Is this true? Think about this: do you need to clean the wind screen of your car? If your car sits somewhere outside unused for a period of time, will it collect dust, dirt and probably bird droppings? Does the rain make them clean again?
The truth is, with all the solar panels we have been called to clean in Melbourne they are all covered with a layer of dust, dirt and sometimes bird droppings. The rain does not clean them for you.
The answer is simple. You want to get the best return on your investment and maximise your solar panels’ energy production. For those customers who monitor their system’s output, they all tell us that there is a significant increase in electricity their solar panels generate after they have been cleaned.
At Exterior Clean Melbourne, we offer two options – General Solar Panel Clean & Detailed Solar Panel Clean.
