How Often Should I Clean My Solar Panels?

Having an official solar panel maintenance schedule is not necessary because there’s nothing, you’ll need to maintain other than an occasional light cleaning. The most efficient plan is simply to clean the panels as needed. How often you will need to clean your solar panels depends on your climate region and the specific area you live in. Generally late spring or during the summer is recommended after pollen has settled.

Additionally, check your solar power monitoring system routinely. It will indicate when your panels are underperforming. If you notice a decrease in power output from your solar panels, the first thing to check is the cleanliness of the panel surfaces to see if they need cleaning.


Following are 7 reasons why you should clean your solar panels regularly:

1. Improve efficiency

There is no doubt that cleaning your panels will increase their overall efficiency. According to many statistical observations, this efficiency and performance improvement can be dramatic. Up to 21% in residential arrays and up to 60% in commercial installations. So it’s the best way to ensure that your panels are prepped for maximum efficiency. Regular cleaning can make a huge difference!

2. Warranty

Many solar panel installation companies as well as manufacturers have specified regular cleaning as a warranty condition. You may not be covered by the warranty if there is no proof of regular cleaning. That’s why regular cleaning is recommended if you want to be on the safe side in case there is a malfunction at some point.

3. Rainwater doesn’t do it for you

Most solar panel owner don’t clean their solar panels after it rains because they think they don’t need to because the rainwater will do it for them. But that’s not true. Like how you need to clean your car’s windshield more often during the rainy season, your solar panels need to be cleaned more often as well. So, it is recommended that you don’t rely on rainwater to clean your panels automatically, because it just doesn’t happen.

4. Increase durability

There are lots of soft grains of sand, Ash from wildfires, dust particles, and debris in the environment. These will eventually build up and contribute to wear and tear when you don’t clean your solar panels regularly. While it may not be obvious at first, over time your panels’ efficiency will decrease and you also risk ending up having equipment that fails much sooner.

5. Aesthetic appeal

Nobody wants an aged-looking, dirt-covered panel adorning their rooftop. Similar to how important it is to clean the rest of your home; it is also essential to take proper care of your solar panels and clean them regularly. This kind of proper maintenance will make your home more aesthetically appealing to both you and your visitors.

6. Inspection

When you clean your solar panels, you get an opportunity to inspect them as well. Cleaning time is a perfect time to inspect and evaluate the condition of your panels.

7. Improve ROI time

Solar panels are not cheap, you spend a significant amount of money to have them installed in your home, so you want to ensure that you get ROI (return on investment) as soon as possible. If you don’t clean your panels regularly, it can dent your ROI time. On the other hand, cleaning them improves their efficiency as more light reaches the cells, and you get improved ROI.

In conclusion It does not take a lot of time and is very affordable, so make sure that you don’t leave this important investment in your home grinning with dirt.

Cleaning and your solar panel warranty

Some solar panel manufacturers require regular cleaning to keep the warranty valid. They want to see they documentation that you have had your solar panels cleaned every six months before they will honor the warranty. This is because professional solar panel cleaners prevent dust, dirt, and debris from causing damage to your solar panels. It’s also because professional solar panel cleaners will check for damage caused by animals, birds, or the environment. Solar panel manufacturers want to take care of their customers, but they don’t want to pay for damage that was caused by negligence if you didn’t do proper maintenance and keep your panels clean and checked over.

How manufacturers say you should clean your solar panels

On their warranties, most manufacturers say that solar panels should be cleaned only with water, not with any sort of chemicals. Some specify that it must be distilled or purified water since tap water can leave a residue. Others do not specify the type of water, if you dry or squeegee your panels so that there is no residue left over. Almost all solar panel manufacturers are adamant about the fact that you should never power wash your solar panels. This can cause damage to the delicate coating on the photovoltaic panels.

How often manufacturers say you should clean your solar panels

The most common recommendation on solar panel warranties is to have them professionally checked and cleaned every six months. This keeps them from getting too grimy, which would decrease the amount of electricity they put out. It also helps keep you informed about the status of your solar panels so that if there is any damage you can get it taken care of before it becomes a major problem.

Become informed about your solar panel warranty

The best way to make sure you are not accidentally voiding your solar panel warranty is simply to read it and become informed about what it says. You may have to have a professional come out every six months to clean your solar panels, or you may simply need to have them checked once a year.
