Solar Panel Cleaning

Adding solar panels to your home in Sonoma County can be a great idea. As a homeowner, this can reduce your electric bill dramatically and be a great investment for your property. However, over time you may notice that they aren’t as effective or efficient as they once were. So, you should ask yourself; When was the last time you had your solar panels cleaned?

What is Solar Panel Cleaning?

This includes:

Debris such as leaves and trigs

Build-up of dust, grime and bird droppings

Atmospheric pollution including harmful particulates

Algae and moss

Tree sap

The best time of year to get your solar panels up to standard is at the end of winter. Then your energy system will be clean and ready to make full use of the sun as it returns with longer intense rays for the spring and summer.

Depending on where your panels have been placed, you may need to consider cleaning your solar panels more than once a year. If your panels have a minimal tilt or are laid flat, there is a higher chance of dirt and debris build-up and will need more regular cleaning.

If you live in a region with low rainfall, you may also want to consider semi-annual cleans. Unfortunately, the wind and rain won’t do a sufficient enough cleaning job on their own so consider using a specialized team.

Why is Solar Panel Cleaning Important?

As identified by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, dirty solar panels produce up to 25% electricity. This is why cleaning them is an important maintenance task that should not be missed. Throughout the year, solar panels are vulnerable to dirt, leaves, and bird droppings leaving them looking old, dirty, and unattractive. This could damage the curb-appeal of your home as well as more pressing issues.

If left unclean, you may face power loss in your home as well as reduce the efficiency of the panels when producing electricity. They may also create ‘hot-spots’ which will nullify the warranty on your solar panel system. With the help of professionals, they can be cleaned with manufacturer-approved cleaning agents and equipment, which will not jeopardize your warranty.

You should also consider bringing in a professional team to clean your social panels for your own health and safety. One obvious safety concern for many is the need to get on top of the property. Did you know that there are an estimated 164,000 ladder-related injuries every year? From climbing roofs, risks of falling, and fear of electrocution, it’s completely understandable and sensible to call in the professionals. With their safety staging, harnesses, and support, expert technicians like ours at Santa Rosa Gutters will safely maintain your solar panels.

I had a great experience with this company. From my first conversation with Kristi I knew I was working with professionals who knew what they were doing. Christian arrived 5 minutes early was extremely communicative, very detail oriented, prepared for the job at hand and the price was comparable to what I have paid in the past. I would definitely recommend this company.

Excellent customer service from start to finish! Santa Rosa gutter was very pleasant to work with, they came out and gave us an estimate and we’re able to perform the job almost immediately, as I was getting ready to put my house on the market and need a good job done quickly. They found some additional repairs that needed to be tended to, and before moving forward sat down with me and explain what was going on and what was needed, and gave me a very fair price. Overall I am extremely impressed with this company and would recommend to anyone!

Found out I had a gutter issue, looked up different services and two days later it was all fixed. It was painless. Zach was personable and did a great job and there is no reason to try anyone else when Santa Rosa Gutter gets the job done.

Very happy to recommend Santa Rosa Gutter. I do not typically write reviews but they were quick to respond to my call, got us scheduled, were on time, and provided excellent service - even cleaning up some trees and branches that were impacting our gutters. Two thumbs up.

I called SR Gutter to help work on my new house that needed some TLC. The owner himself answered the phone. Zack was very professional on the phone and showed up on time for our appointment. He made quick work of the job, gave me a very reasonable quote and did what he said he was going to do. It's been several weeks and I am very satisfied with completed project. I will be using this company again and would recommend to friends and family.
