Solar panel installations have grown exponentially in recent years thanks to the green energy boom. They work by simply converting readily available sun light into energy which can be used in your home and/or sold back to the grid. Most exterior surfaces are prone to the build up of dirt, pollution and organic matter such as algae, moss, mould and solar panels are no exception either. It was thought that the rain would simply keep solar panels clean, however this is simply not the case. We offer fully comprehensive solar panel cleaning services in Cambridge, Cambridgeshire and surrounding areas.
If solar panels are not cleaned frequently they start to look unsightly and a thin layer of man-made/organic film develops which starts to render them inefficient when it comes to producing electricity, ultimately this means less energy and return on your investment. Based on our research we found that Google who use renewable energy discovered by cleaning their solar panels energy performance increased by 12%.
When it comes to solar panel cleaning you may have tried to DIY or previously used a company, below are typical solar panel cleaning techniques.
At Cambridge Soft Wash we take an entirely different approach, our solar panel cleaning service in Cambridge, Cambridgeshire and surrounding areas doesn't use traditional high powered pressure washing. Instead we use a cleaning process called softwashing, this process through science utilises chemistry to provide powerful, non-aggressive and non-damaging solar panel cleaning. The special soft wash solution blends combined with pure water are capable of removing stains, films and all organic matter.
The use of pure water in conjunction with the special soft wash solution ensures no minerals or deposits are left behind that are normally found in the water itself, otherwise can cause stains/streaks. Organic matter such as algae, moss etc is killed at the root level, typically our process lasts up to three times longer when compared to traditional solar panel cleaning methods used.
The application of pure water and soft wash solution onto the solar panels is usually performed at the ground level using long reach poles, powered by low pressure pumps using soft brushes or our custom designed nozzles. During the quotation we conduct a thorough inspection and risk assessment.
We protect areas including plants, borders and garden furniture etc and start the cleaning process. Once the cleaning process has completed your solar panels will dry naturally, totally clean and be much more efficient in their power generation process.
