FAQs

Cleaning and maintenance are crucial to ensure your solar panels operate at peak efficiency. Dust, dirt, and debris can accumulate on the panels, reducing energy production over time.

The frequency of cleaning depends on factors like your location and local climate. Typically, a thorough cleaning every 6 to 12 months is sufficient, but more frequent cleaning may be needed in dusty or dry areas.

While it’s possible to clean your solar panels, professional cleaning services are recommended, as they have the proper tools, knowledge, and safety measures to ensure a thorough and safe cleaning process.

Solar panel maintenance includes a visual inspection, electrical check, inverter inspection, cleaning, and an efficiency analysis to ensure your system is operating optimally.

Neglecting maintenance can lead to reduced energy production and potential long-term damage. Dust and dirt can cause hotspots, while loose connections or damaged components may go unnoticed.

Bird guards, wire mesh, or physical barriers can be installed to prevent birds and debris from coming into contact with your solar panels.

A noticeable drop in energy production or performance is an indication that your panels need attention. Regular visual inspections can also help identify the presence of dust or debris.

Rain can help with basic cleaning, but it may not thoroughly clean all areas of the panels and can leave mineral deposits. Regular, professional cleaning ensures effective maintenance.
