Paint damage to your solar panels can cause 90% blockage of solar output!

Recently had your home painted and the painter didn’t cover your panels?

Yep! You too? It’s something we get all the time! Too often painters try to cut corners and not cover solar panels when they are doing exterior home painting projects. The paint dust specs collects on the solar panels which causes almost total blockage. The painter is responsible for all damage to your house, so make sure that if you notice any paint on your panels to contact your painter and contact us. Schedule your cleaning with us, then we can invoice the painter for your account so they can make the payment direct.

It’s not easy to remove paint from solar panels!

We use a special process with unique tools to get the paint off and NOT cause any damage to the panels.
