What We Offer
Specialised Solar Panel Cleaning
Cleaning solar panels is not as simple as cleaning windows or glass surfaces, as solar panels have specialised coatings, weatherproof seals and structural integrity which can be compromised if cleaned incorrectly. Our solar cleaning experts have diligently collaborated with Australian solar industry professionals to develop the most effective & safe techniques for cleaning solar panels without compromising their specialised factory coatings, weatherproof seals, electrical connections or structural integrity of the solar panels. Is it worth risking your solar power investment on unqualified cleaners?

Specialised Cleaning Techniques
Dust, soil, water stains make solar panels dirty, it is common practice to apply pure water and non- scratch nylon brushes to effectively clean the solar panels and is used by many cleaners. However this approach is ineffective at removing stubborn bat droppings, lichen and moulds. Lichen and moulds inhabit the panels, roof and grounds of the property as they spread via spores. The pure water approach requires the cleaner to apply hard pressure onto the glass surface of the solar panel and will not stop these moulds, algae and lichens from spreading back onto the solar panels. We spray the solar panels and surrounding roof with a unique plant-based eco-friendly blend that removes the need for hard scrubbing of the panels but provides a clean surface and reduces lichen, algae and mould growth from returning to the panel. We recommend pressure cleaning of mouldy concrete surfaces around property to further reduce mould buildup.

Benefits of Solar Panel Cleaning
Solar panels operate by converting sunlight into electricity. Over time, dust, dirt, bird & bat droppings, lichen, algae, black mould can accumulate on the surface of the panels, reducing overall efficiency of the entire solar panel system, not just affected panels. Australian industry experts recommend 6 - 12 months to maintain optimal performance, increased solar feed in tariff returns, extending the lifespan of your solar panel investment and helping to reduce your carbon footprint.

According to the Australian Clean Energy Regulator research has shown that dirty solar panel systems can lose between 15% to 25% of their total efficiency. Clean solar panels can produce more energy resulting in more excess energy generated to power your home, which increases profit through higher solar feed in tariff rates helping to further lower electricity bills. reduced carbon footprint and increased
Solar panels from earlier generations where designed to last 10 -15 years, but with technology design innovations, we are seeing warranties of up to 25 years. However, the accumulation of dirt and debris can cause irreversible damage to the panels, such as micro-cracks, break down of weather proofing seals, discolourations, hot spots. Regular cleaning by our expert solar panel cleaners can help to prevent such issues, ensuring that your panels last for their intended lifespan and efficiency.
The majority of solar panel manufacturers stipulate regular cleaning as part of their warranty terms. Failing to maintain your solar panels can void the warranty or if you encounter any problems with your solar panels before the warranty expires and they can be related to lack of maintenance of the panels, it can make it difficult to be eligible for the warranty claim, potentially leaving you without coverage. Our solar panel cleaning experts can help you adhere to warranty requirements, increase efficiency of your solar panels and peace of mind knowing you have protected your investment. The invoices and receipts of regular solar panel cleaning will serve as evidence of your care of your solar power system.
