Solar Panel Cleaning Services from HelioPower
Solar panels are exposed to sunlight to produce electricity. However, if you live in an area with heavy particulates in the air, it's a good idea to get your panels cleaned regularly. Dirty solar panels produce less electricity, which is why solar panel cleaning is an essential component of any solar maintenance program. Our maintenance team is available to clean solar panel arrays on homes, businesses, or large ground mount systems. And as a part of the cleaning service, we perform a visual inspection of the solar array! This ensures that everything appears to be in good working order.

Our Work & Expertise
Solar panel cleaning is critical to maintaining solar system performance.
- Panels are inspected and removed of any debris prior to cleaning.
- Spray down all solar modules with water at minimal pressure. (Do not use high pressure washers.)
- Water is conditioned through a water softener to minimize mineral deposit.
- Use a soft bristle brush during heavy soil situations to free accumulated soil. They prevent micro fractures or scratches on the solar panels.
The typical cleaning services includes the following:
- Do not use chemicals or abrasive cleaning during the cleaning process.
- Inspect the site for any hazardous conditions.
- Cover all electrical equipment, (i.e. inverters and combiner boxes) with tarps prior to cleaning.
- Use an aerial man lift, when required, to reach the solar modules.
The Challenge For Solar Owners
Solar performance degrades by 20% without adequate cleaning. To maintain optimal energy production, solar arrays require periodic solar panel cleanings especially in areas of high airborne particulates (dust, exhaust, coastal salts, organic debris, industrial processes).
Getting solar panels cleaned has become a critical industry best practice and often offers a simple and cost effective method to increase rate of return by 20% or more.
