Solar Panel Cleaning for Kent areas  

Solar panels, also known as photovoltaic (PV) panels, are devices that convert sunlight into electrical energy. They are made up of multiple interconnected solar cells, typically composed of silicon or other semiconductor materials. When sunlight hits the solar cells, it excites the electrons within the material, creating an electric current. 
It is recommended to have solar panels cleaned periodically to maintain their efficiency and maximise their energy production. Over time, dust, dirt, pollen, bird droppings, leaves, and other debris can accumulate on the surface of solar panels, reducing their ability to convert sunlight into electricity effectively. Cleaning the panels helps to remove these obstructions and ensures optimal performance. 

Solar panel cleaning what you need to know :

The frequency of cleaning depends on various factors such as the local climate, amount of dust or dirt in the area, and the angle of the solar panels. In general, it is advisable to clean the panels at least once or twice a year. However, if you live in a particularly dusty or polluted area, or if you notice a significant decrease in energy production, more frequent cleaning may be necessary.

It's essential to prioritise safety when cleaning solar panels. If your panels are installed on the roof or at a height, it's recommended to hire a professional solar panel cleaning service to ensure safe access and proper cleaning techniques. Working at heights can be dangerous, and professional cleaners have the necessary equipment and expertise to perform the task safely.

Cleaning Methods:  
When cleaning solar panels, it's crucial to use methods and materials that do not damage the panels or their coatings. Soft brushes, sponges, or microfibre cloths, along with mild detergent or soapy water, are commonly used for cleaning. Avoid using abrasive materials, harsh chemicals, or high-pressure water sprays that can scratch or damage the panels.

It's best to clean solar panels in the early morning or late afternoon when they are not exposed to direct sunlight. Cleaning panels while they are hot can cause rapid drying of the cleaning solution, leaving streaks or residue.

Monitoring Performance: 
Regularly monitor the performance of your solar panels to identify any significant changes or decreases in energy production. If you notice a persistent decline in energy output despite cleaning, it might be necessary to seek professional assistance to inspect the panels for any issues or defects. 

While it is possible to clean solar panels yourself, there are several compelling reasons to consider employing professionals for this task:
