With the increase in demand for renewable energy, solar panels are being used much more frequently than in the past. Eco-friendly and efficient, they benefit you and the environment in multiple ways. But over a period of time, as the panels collect dirt and other waste, their efficiency decreases.

Just as you carry out roof cleaning every so often, your solar panels, too, need to be cleaned frequently in order to maintain their efficiency and output. At Tennant, we offer solar panel cleaning services like no other in the business in Melbourne. We have the know-how to safely clean your panels without causing any damage. Contact us today for more information.

Solar Panel Cleaning Services

At Tennant Window Cleaning, we understand that maintaining clean solar panels is crucial for optimal energy production. Contrary to common belief, rainwater isn’t enough to keep your panels clean. Rain carries with it airborne particles, including dust and dirt. Over time, these elements settle on the surface of your solar panels, creating a film that can reduce their efficiency.

Statistically, clean solar panels can generate up to 30% more energy than dirty ones. While we recommend cleaning your solar panels every six months for peak output, we understand that this may not always be feasible for all households. In such cases, an annual clean will suffice to secure your investment’s health and ensure you’re getting your money’s worth.

Common Causes Of Grime On Solar Panels Include:

  • Dirt and dust, especially in densely populated areas of Melbourne
  • Leaves and other debris
  • Rainwater
  • Tree sap
  • Bird droppings
  • Pollution residue
  • Salt residue in coastal areas
  • Pollen
  • Moss or algae growth

Tennant Window Cleaning uses specialised non-abrasive brushes and purified water for solar panel cleaning. This method ensures a spotless, residue-free clean that doesn’t involve any harmful chemicals. A thorough, professional cleaning service like ours is unequalled in maintaining the performance of your solar panels. Not only will the energy production of your solar panels be optimised, but their lifespan will also be extended.

Why do solar panels need to be cleaned?

Solar panels need to be cleaned regularly as dirt, dust, bird droppings, and other debris can reduce their efficiency by blocking sunlight.

How often should solar panels be professionally cleaned?

The frequency of professional cleaning depends on the location and environment. As a general rule, we recommend having your solar panels cleaned at least once or twice a year. However, in areas with high pollution or bird activity, more frequent cleanings may be needed.

Do you also clean the frames of the solar panels?

Yes, we clean the solar panel frames. At Tennant, we believe that a thorough cleaning contributes to the overall performance and lifespan of your solar panels.

Do I need to turn off the power before you clean the solar panels?

No, you do not need to turn off the power before we clean the solar panels. Our team is trained to perform cleaning safely without interrupting your solar power production.
