Solar Panel Cleaning - The Green Way

Solar Check is San Diego's Green Solar Panel Cleaner

Solar Check is a green and environmentally safe company. We follow the procedures pioneered by our partner and America's largest volume PV cleaning company, Solar Maid. We normally utilize a dry clean system that uses very little water.

The picture to the left shows a bucket containing less than one gallon of water with the cleanser already dissolved. This will be enough liquid to clean 15 to 20 panels. To hose off these panels using a high pressure water jet would require in excess of 25 gallons. An additional thing to remember is that your roof was weatherproofed against the rain which falls down. Jetted water goes everywhere and can get under asphalt and cement roof tiles very easily. So care if required to avoid causing water damage to your home or business. Now, hosing off a solar panel can help remove dust and loose debris but a safe non abrasive scrubbing process in necessary to assure a clean solar panel and the energy generation efficiency. On larger, commercial and industrial size solar systems where access is limited, we do implement a combination cleaning systems which makes use of specially treated water, cleanser and hi-pressure jetting system. When possible we employ water reclamation as well.

We always prefer to utilize our dry clean method in every case possible. The picture to the right displays the waste water from a typical dry cleaning. It is normally less than a gallon, biodegradable and completely harmless to plants and animals. Each situation warrants a different cleaning approach. A proper inspection is the only way to make sure your solar panels are performing at peak efficiency.


Solar Panels - Tap Water and Safety

Consumers who clean their solar panels with tap water normally use a hose and work from an elevated position. This arouses two concerns. One concern is for the solar panels as tap water normally contains minerals. These minerals are not good for the panels and a film is left behind that tends to attract environmental dust and pollutants. The solution we use for all cleaning applications is inert, safe for the environment and specially filtered to literally make your solar panels look brand new. Another even greater concern is when a home or business owner gets on a ladder and splashes or power sprays water on an electricity producing device. The fall and electrical hazard risks are great. Solar panels are designed to withstand the elements but due to lack of routine care and maintenance, the warming and cooling that occurs on a roof can cause wires to sag and move around. This can result corrosion and broken wires. If your system has a ground short that you are unaware off or if you get water on a component that would not get wet under normal conditions, you could be seriously injured . It is best to contact a professional to inspect and clean your solar system.
