Regular cleaning of solar panels reduces the buildup of hard to remove materials!


Pollen is a clingy substance unlikely to be removed by rainwater alone. Pollen also assists other substances in sticking to your panels.



Rainwater can, in certain conditions, clean some types of dirt off solar panels. However, rain can also leave its own residue that could reduce your solar production. Rain carries dirt and pollen and once the rain evaporates, it leaves behind a mineral or fine dust residue. This is more likely to happen during our summer months.


Solar panels located in areas with higher concentrations
(near roads, factories, etc.) will be more prone to a build-up of dust

Bird Droppings:

Heavy soiling by bird droppings can impair the effectiveness of your solar panels. Droppings are not washed off by rainwater alone and become especially stubborn once dry.

Frequently asked questions:

Why should I keep my solar panels clean?


To improve the output of energy you get from your solar panels. The accumulations of contaminants such as dirt, pollen, bird droppings and debris block your solar panels from the sun, which results in reducing your energy output!

Is it safe to clean my solar panels?

Absolutely! At Clear Panels Solar Cleaning we only use products specifically designed for solar panel glass cleaning. Due to the location of the panels typically on your roof, we advise to have a trained

professional maintain your equipment for you. 

How often should my solar panels be cleaned?


At Clear Panels Solar Cleaning, we recommend getting your solar panels cleaned at least every quarter, or every three months, to ensure you are getting the most out of your investment.


For commercial settings, we recommend cleaning your solar panels every other month. This is done due to the higher volume of solar panels which constitutes a larger amount of money being lost to contaminants. Therefore, it is in your best interest to always have them clean and efficient.
