Our “On THE ROOF” Solar Cleaning Process

  • Step 1 – Inspect the solar panels on a periodic basis (frequency depends on location or the manufacturer’s specifications) to remove any debris and dirt and ensure all connections are tight.
  • Step 2 – Solar Panels installed in dusty areas may require more frequent inspection, so once a month is recommend.
  • Step 3 – Clean the surface of a solar panel with a certified solar panel cleaning solution to remove any accumulation of dirt and grime. Do not clean with soap and water, because different soaps contain different elements that can be very harmful to your solar panels.
