How Do Solar Panels Get Dirty?
No matter where the solar panels are located on your home’s property they can collect dust, dirt, leaves, and bird droppings. All of these can result in lower efficiency and eventually cause you more in costs over time since the light cannot get through the grime. Solar panels located near trees can accumulate more debris than those in other areas since they attract birds and can cause leaves to drop on them. Panels that are flat also have more risk for debris than those that are angled.

Dirty solar panels can lead to decreased efficiency, resulting in higher energy costs. Sierra Vista Maintenance provides solar panel cleaning in Sacramento and homes in the surrounding area.

While you may be thinking your solar panels are well cared for by the rain that can wash away the dirt and grime that can collect on them over time, the rain cannot thoroughly clean them and ensure they are working properly and not decreasing your energy efficiency.
We recommend talking to our team about monthly or quarterly maintenance plans to keep your sparkling year-round! While you’re getting your solar panels cleaned, we can help with your window cleaning, gutter cleaning, and pressure washing needs as well.
The Best Way To Clean Solar Panels Is With Professional Help
