At Solarea, we are not only committed to installing your solar panels; we also want to ensure that you maximise their performance over time. Here are some practical tips to help you carry out basic maintenance and cleaning of your solar panels in the comfort of your own home.

1. Frequency of cleaning:

Establish a regular cleaning routine. In general, it is recommended to clean solar panels at least twice a year. However, in areas with high levels of dust, pollen or pollution, you may want to clean more frequently.

2. Strategic Timetables:

Clean at specific times of the day to maximise effectiveness. Early morning or late afternoon is usually ideal, avoiding direct exposure to strong sunlight.

3. Appropriate Tools:

Use soft, non-abrasive tools to avoid damaging the surface of the panels. A soft bristle brush or a clean sponge are ideal options.

4. Water and mild detergent:

Clean the panels with water and a mild detergent. Make sure that the detergent does not contain abrasive chemicals that could damage the glass or the frame of the solar panels.

5. Natural Drying:

Allow the panels to dry naturally after cleaning. Avoid using rags or towels that may leave residues or scratches on the surface.

6. Security First:

If you need to climb onto the roof to clean the panels, be sure to follow safe practices. Wear personal protective equipment and be careful when walking on the roof.

7. Regular Monitoring:

Observe any changes in the performance of your solar panels and perform additional cleaning if you notice a significant decrease in power generation.

8. Climatic conditions:

Avoid cleaning the solar panels in extreme weather conditions, such as very high or low temperatures. Moderate conditions are safer and more efficient.

9. Refer to Manufacturer’s Manual:

Check your solar panel manufacturer’s manual for specific maintenance and cleaning guidelines.

10. Recruitment of Professionals:

If in doubt or if you do not feel comfortable cleaning, consider hiring professionals. Solarea offers maintenance services to ensure the optimal performance of your solar system.

By following these practical tips, you can ensure that your solar panels work efficiently and generate as much energy as possible. At Solarea, we are committed to not only providing sustainable solutions, but also to empowering you to care for and maintain your solar investment. Make the most of the sun’s energy!
