Can I Use A Pressure Washer To Clean Solar Panels?
September 16, 2021
If you’ve ever watched some of those gloriously satisfying YouTube videos showing people removing dirt with a pressure washer, you’ll understand the appeal.
This fabulous piece of machinery makes some serious cleaning jobs an absolute breeze. And their high pressure means you can reach great heights and distances with them.
So should you use all this convenient power and cleaning ability on your solar panels?
The short answer (after we’d finished hyperventilating at the thought) is no. Never. Absolutely not. If anyone suggests it, send ‘em packing immediately.
Pressure washers are absolutely unrivaled at cleaning exterior surfaces, including the roof and gutters (now there’s an idea!), but they should simply never be used on solar panels.
The sheer force the system uses to jet the water out of the nozzle can shatter, break and totally ruin your solar panels, leading to a hefty replacement cost.
So, tempting though it may be, we absolutely don’t recommend using a pressure washer to clean your solar panels.
If the thought of climbing onto your roof and gingerly rootling about with a sponge turns you into a quivering mass, we get it. That’s why solar panel owners trust the experts at BCS to keep them sun-soaking ready.
