🧚‍♂️ Cleaning the Panels in Your Peoria Solar Home

Get in touch with the panel manufacturer to get advice and recommendations. Alternatively, you can also check the user manuals for any warnings regarding the cleaning process. In many instances, the rain will take care of the cleaning for the most part, but you must also do your part.

If your panels tend to acquire a heavy coating of dust, leaves, and pollen, you can clean off the debris easily using plain water and a hose.

Make sure to clean the roof too. Debris can pile up and easily be blown onto the panels during a wind storm, so keeping the area clean is probably the single best and least expensive thing you can do to extend the life of your power plant.

When cleaning, ensure that you take care not to scratch the surface of the panels so as not to affect the light absorption ability negatively.

Additionally, if you plan on using any cleaners, pick mild ones that will not affect the surface.

You should also stay away from detergents as well as they can leave streaks and smudges that make absorption problematic.

Rubbing alcohol mixed with a little water can help you remove any oily residue or dirt that may be lodged onto the panels. To wipe it all down, you can use a squeegee or a piece of soft cloth that will not leave traces of fluff or strands of fabric.
