Have you taken the time to clean your solar panels lately? Many property owners (residential and commercial) do not think much about their solar panels simply because they operate in the background and are out of sight. However, if you hope to get the best use out of your solar panel system, they need to be maintained.
At First Coast Home Pros, we offer Orange Park solar panel cleaning services that can keep your system operating at its best.
Do You Need to Clean Solar Panels?
The investment in solar panels is nearly always a good one in Orange Park. Yet, once you install the system, there is still the need to maintain it, and cleaning solar panels is one component of that process. Routine cleaning of solar panels offers several benefits:
- Remove dust and debris that gets in the way. Dust and debris on the surface of a solar panel can be a very big concern over time, especially if that damage builds up, and without access to the light from the sun, solar arrays cannot function well.
- Algae and bacteria can create damage to the panels. If you do not clean the solar panels often enough or properly, this can often lead to damage to the actual panels from algae, mold, and mildew buildup, which is especially true if you have trees close to the surface of the panels.
- Though many of the solar panels installed today are highly durable, they can suffer damage if not cared for properly. The key here is to keep debris from the surface that could scratch or otherwise damage the glass.
Solar panel cleaning in Orange Park is a necessary step in routine system maintenance, but this is not always a task you should do yourself. In fact, in many situations, it may be best to let the pros handle it instead.
Why Our Professionals Should Be Your First Call
Our solar panel cleaning services in Orange Park should be the first thing you do to get your panels clean and working at their best. There are many reasons why you should turn to a professional service, including the following.
We Keep You Safely on the Ground
Beyond everything else, solar panels are elevated, and that means climbing on a ladder and putting yourself at risk. That’s especially true in situations where you are facing wet conditions. It is just safer to allow a professional to handle this work for you instead.
Our Cleaning Solution Is Safe to Use on Solar Panels
Our expertise in cleaning solar panels helps to ensure that your panels are cleaned properly every time. The cleaning solution we use helps minimize any buildup present, but it also minimizes the risk of damage from the actual cleaning agents.
It is critical that solar panels are cleaned properly, and that always means that no chemicals should be used in the process that could damage them. You also need to be sure that no residue is left on the surface of the panels, which is common when the wrong type of cleaning agents are used. Those residues can make your panels less efficient overall.
We use a residue-free process that only uses safe cleaning agents. This ensures that your panels are clean and protected with good consistency. We also use only pure water. This helps ensure that there is no residue buildup on the surface.
We Clean Them Using the Right Tools
Another important consideration when it comes to cleaning solar panels is that you cannot walk on them. You should not walk near them on the edge of your roof, either. That is why we use a telescoping brush system that works to remove the dirt properly, gently, and without any risks.
A core component of this process is the pure water we use through that telescoping tool. The water is moved through a carbon and sediment filter as a first step. This process uses reverse osmosis to help remove anything from the water that is impure that could cause damage to the panels. It also allows for the removal of all dissolved mineral salts.
When Should You Have Your Solar Panels Cleaned in Orange Park?
Cleaning your solar panels is often dependent on the circumstances present. In many areas, the humidity and overall weather conditions in Orange Park dictate when you have this work done. If you have some trees closer to the solar panels, that may increase the frequency as well. Typically, most homeowners should have their solar panels cleaned one time every year, though two times tends to be better. However, we also recommend having them done more often if you are having any signs of concerns with your panels, including:
- A noticeable buildup of algae or other dirt on the panels
- A drop in efficiency over the last few months
- Noticeable streaking or discoloration on the panels
- Instances in which the system is not working
- Recommendations by a solar panel repair technician for cleaning them
