Can Should I Clean My Solar Panels Myself? | BCS Cleaning Specialists

Even after dumping an ocean’s worth of snow on the Salt Lake Valley and Park City, Utah manages to maintain glorious, almost-year-round sunshine. And what’s a person to do with all that lovely sunshine? Harness it’s endless supply of free energy with house-mounted solar panels! Many Utah residents have done just this, saving the planet and their energy bills in one fell swoop.

But what happens when those same solar panels need cleaning? No one really thinks of that while they’re watching their solar panels be installed, but just like anything else that sits outside year-round, solar panels need cleaning to remove dust, debris and watermarks so they can operate at peak efficiency.

You might think it’s an easy matter of simply shooting a stream of water from your hose at ground-level and clearing off any leaves and dust that have accumulated throughout the year. While this will help somewhat to remove physical particulates, even if it manages to throughly clean off any dust and dirt that have built-up, washing with a hose actually creates its own issue. Hose-water (when not polished dry) leaves watermarks of its own and actually causes buildup of hard-water deposits. Over time (and not even that much time), these can create a film or coating over your solar panels that make them work less and less efficiently.

There is an easy solution, however, and it involves even less work than lumping out the garden hose (hurrah!). BCS Cleaning Solutions Utah have been solving Utah and the Salt Lake Valley’s cleaning problems for over forty years, and solar panel pickles are no different. 

Our trained professionals will clamber onto your roof to wash each solar panel properly and completely, leaving them sparkling and spot-free and ready to gobble up all the energy the sun can shine on them. We use specialist products and tools to give you a perfect finish that will last, enabling you to focus on other things, like how much money and planet you’re saving with each energy bill. You can even schedule our visits to happen seasonally or periodically, meaning you never have to take your binoculars out to check if the solar panels need cleaning – they will be automatically cleaned on your schedule.

Ready to have the uncertainty and annoyance of solar panel cleaning taken care of for you? Give BCS a call today at 801 561 1730 to schedule your FREE consultation and solar panel screening.

I've used other local franchise companies in the past and the attention to detail was always lacking. BCS's attention to detail is consistently good, they show up when they say and their service is much more personal than the larger franchises. Happy with their job everytime.
