How Do I Know When To Clean My Solar Panels? | BCS Cleaning Specialists
Solar panels are clearly built to live outside. They’re not dedicated little flowers that will fall apart with a single rainstorm. However, they are also complex and important electronic machines, and need specialist maintenance to work at their best.
Utah and the Salt Lake Valley tend to have heavy air particulates at certain times of the year. In winter especially, aerosolized salt can corrode delicate glass surfaces and leave etching that can mess with a solar panel’s operation.
Another interesting factor to consider in maintenance frequency is the angle of your solar panel array. Flat panels tend to require more attention and upkeep as rainwater can pool and leave a nasty muddy residue when it evaporates. Angled panels naturally allow rain to run off, keeping them cleaner for longer.
Some homeowners choose to try cleaning their own solar panels. This usually only lasts once when the homeowner starts to see the sheer level of work involved! If you decide to give cleaning your solar panels a go yourself, remember that it is always going to be safer to do it from the ground, wherever possible.
However, the much-agreed best way to clean solar panels is by using a professional solar panel cleaning company.
So how do you know when to bring in the big (water) guns to get your solar panels back up to snuff?
If it’s just a case of a bit of dust buildup, you can probably wait. However, during winter, at the start of spring, or when the job just becomes too much of an undertaking or hazard to do yourself, it’s well worth calling in the professionals at BCS to get things taken care of.
You know that your solar panels will be cleaned to the highest possible standard and any issues will be spotted and taken care of, without you having to walk on the tightrope of your own roof to inspect things yourself.
