Cleaning Solar Panels, Is It Worth It?

It always seems to rain the day you wash your car, right? But that doesn’t mean it's a total wash. There are a lot of things in rainwater; soap is not one of them. And that nice ocean breeze that dries your car? It usually deposits a scattering of pollen, dust, leaves, and other debris. The point being, your car is not clean after it rains.

Think about your solar panels like your car. They were a big investment and you want them to live a long and productive life. That means regular maintenance, care, and cleaning. When you choose a trusted and experienced technician to service your solar panels, you are investing in the longevity of your system. You take your car in for an oil change and the mechanic inspects your car to let you know if anything else is not working properly or otherwise compromised and provides options for service and repair.

Your Bird Rock Inspections technician will do just that. Every solar panel cleaning comes with a free inspection. You will receive a detailed report listing any concerns, safety hazards, and your system’s productivity with before and after pictures*.
