The ProPlus Solar Panel Cleaning Process

We will use our ProPlus De-ionized water treatment to clean your panels using specialized solar panel friendly brushes. This is a 100% chemical free De-ionized specialized method that provides a spot and blemish free finish and allows your panels to operate at their maximum capacity, optimizing their efficiency so you can receive the most financial benefits from your investment. In fact, this method keeps your panels clean up to 10 times longer than standard cleaning.

Water fed pole cleaning is a soapless method of cleaning solar panels. Tap water is filtered through a pure water system and completely purified, which is then fed through a tube, attached to a brush at the end of a pole. The specialized cleaning brush is used to scrub the solar panels; it lightly agitates the surface and breaks down dirt, salt, and mildew. The pure, de-ionized water will attract the dirt and lift it from almost any surface, eliminating any need for soap, leaving your solar panels streak-free and shining.


How Long Does It Take?

It typically takes between 40 and 90 minutes to clean your panels with more time needed for larger systems and based on panel location.  As part of this time, it will take 20-30 minutes for your cleaning technician to get setup (brushes, De-ionized water tank, hoses, ladder, etc.). Your cleaning technician will take another 10-20 minutes to complete the optimal performance inspection which is our 25 point inspection of each panel for any damage or other issues. This will also include a series of before/after photographs of your system.  The actual cleaning process will take only 15-40 minutes. Your cleaning technician will strive to be time efficient and perform the job at the highest standards to ensure you receive optimal results. Please note that we will not dry the panels using towels as we will not use any equipment that may scratch your solar panel investment. This means it may take 10-15 minutes to dry, yet the De-ionized water treatment will not leave any harsh water spots.

The Before/After Experience

Notice the before/after difference. This is how you will optimize your solar panel performance to save you a ton of money! Dirty panels is the main reason many customers have to pay their power company a true-up each year. The installer projected your solar output based on the panels performing at maximum performance for the entire year. Once they get dirty, they can lose up to 30% of their output (if not cleaned in 1-2 years). We’ve seen panels that haven’t been cleaned in 6+ years that were losing 65%+ output.
