Dust-Free, Dirt-Free, Come Summer, Winter and Beyond
PV solar panels are hailed for being relatively low-maintenance for home-owners. But with drastic weather shifts, rain, wind, bird droppings, and dust everywhere all the time, you could experience more than a dirty solar panel. Your panel’s ability to generate power could literally be compromised. Thankfully, you don’t need to fork out thousands on professional PV solar panel cleaners. Here are three simple steps to clean your PV solar panels yourself, today..
#1: Gentle Brushing
Start by loosening visible debris on the surface using a soft brush.
#2: Spray Away
Whip out the garden hose to blast away grim. Avoid high-pressure sprayers which could cause damage to your solar panel and, in turn, your investment.
#3: Soft Cloth Wipe
Cover a long-handled wiper with a soft cloth to scrub those hard-to-reach corners and prevent grime from accumulating.
Don’t forget to only work on your solar panel when it’s overcast – hot panels can really ruin your day (and your skin…) and always wear high-quality coveralls like ours here at Kolossus workwear to keep safe on the job…and on your solar panels.
