As a UK solar panel cleaning professional with 12 years experience, I can't stress how critical it is to maintain your solar panels.

Solar panels are a superb investment for homeowners – but keeping those panels clean and operating at peak efficiency is absolutely essential.

Some people think they can simply hose off their solar panels every once in a while to keep them in top shape or that rainwater cleans panels, it doesn’t!

Improper cleaning methods can actually do more harm than good. Not only that, but ignoring solar panel maintenance can result in pigeons and other disease-carrying pests causing havoc underneath the solar panels.

I have seen so many terrible examples of this over the years where solar panels have been incorrectly cleaned causing huge on going problems for homeowners.

For example, the wrong cleaning solutions or abrasive materials can scratch or deteriorate the surface or anti glare over time, significantly reducing the panels' ability to convert sunlight to energy of up too 25%!

That's why it's so important to use proper cleaning techniques and solutions explicitly designed for solar panel cleaning. 

Cutting-edge solar panels experts also use the very best state-of-the-art nanotechnology service to help clients.

With my extensive training and widespread experience, I am trained in the latest solar panel cleaning methods that are both safe and effective. 

In addition to improper cleaning methods, trying to clean your solar panels yourself can be downright dangerous even if the system has been isolated the panels are in-fact still live when exposed to light.


Most residential solar cleaning requires being on the roof to clean properly and have full vision as to what you’re putting your brush over, which poses a serious fall hazard - especially for those without proper training and safety equipment. 

As professionals, we take extensive safety precautions and have the right harnesses and gear to access your panels safely.

Beyond just the cleaning itself, we also can inspect the entire solar array for any cracks, loose connections, or other issues that could be reducing the system's output. 

We have the experience to identify potential problems early before they become bigger, costlier issues down the road.

So if you've made the smart investment in solar energy for your home, make sure to protect that investment by getting your panels professionally cleaned on a regular maintenance schedule - at least annually and ideally 2 times per year (Every 6 months) but check the panels manufacturers details on how often their panels should be cleaned as to not invalidate the warranty on them. 

The long-term cost savings in energy production and extending your solar system's lifespan will far outweigh the affordable price of professional cleaning. 

Don't risk damaging your solar installation or putting yourself in danger - make sure they are professionally dealt with.
