Can I Use A Brush To Clean My Solar Panels?

September 23, 2021

The simple answer is: it depends on the brush.

If you’re using a soft brush with very flexible bristles along with soapy water, this is actually one of the best ways to clean your solar panels. The soft bristles won’t damage the surface, and the addition of soap and water reduces friction even further, along with emulsifying any dirt that gets scrubbed free.

So if you’re using a soft brush with water and soap, go at it – we give it a big thumbs up.

If the brush in question has firmer or (heaven forbid) rigid bristles and/or you’re not using soapy water, the answer is a resolute no. The brush alone can damage the surface of the solar panel, and even when used with water, it still has the potential to scratch or cause damage to the sensitive outer layers.

Solar panels are delicate creatures and need careful, informed care and maintenance to keep working at their best.

If the thought of climbing up there to scrub at your solar panels leaves you flat, give the pros at BCS a call today at 801 561 1730. We’ll be up the ladder and polishing up your solar panels in a jiffy!
