Solar Panel Cleaning Services

At Easy Cool Air, we provide solar panel cleaning services in Cairns and surrounds that’s second to none.

We have the extensive knowledge and skills to clean and service your existing solar panels so they can perform at optimal levels all year round. Our services are available to both residential and commercial customers and our local knowledge means that we understand your needs when it comes to solar panel cleaning.

When Should I Clean My Solar Panels?

Solar panels are prone to environmental stressors like dust and debris, so leaving them for long periods without cleaning can affect the performance of the unit.

It’s recommended you have your solar panels cleaned and checked by a professional at least once every 12 months, but if you suspect your panels are under-performing, a 6 monthly check may be necessary.

Why Should I Use a Solar Panel Cleaning Service?

The more light a solar panel can absorb, the more efficiently it will convert light to energy and generate power for your home or business. If your panels are littered with bird droppings, grime and dirt build-up, it’ll result in panels that aren’t operating at peak performance levels and affect the energy output of the unit.

It is best to call in a professional cleaning service to ensure your safety, comprehensive cleaning, and excellent system performance results. Any type of work on the roof can be hazardous, with higher chances of accidents when cleaning solar panels as the water can make the roof’s surface wet and slippery. Panels that are high up that can’t be reached without appropriate scaffolding, safety harnesses, and a hard hat may be best left with specialists who have the right equipment and expertise.

Cleaning & Maintaining Solar Panels The Easy Cool Air Way

The friendly team at Easy Cool Air will assess your panels and location and discuss options for cleaning that suit your needs.

When cleaning and maintaining solar panels, we begin by testing and recording the voltage, amps, and watts of the system. We then turn off and isolate the system before cleaning the panels thoroughly, using non-toxic and non-acidic premium cleaning agents in our intensive cleaning process.

After cleaning your panels, we take photos and perform visual checks of your rooftop array of panels and racking, array cabling and earth and rooftop isolators. We will also document the DC cable run between the rooftop array and inverter.

Once inspections are done, we turn the system back on to test the DC cabling from the inverter to solar array panels and record the reading. We will also retest and rerecord voltage, amps, and watts to ensure your system is working the way it was earlier or has improved since our cleaning process.

We then take photos of the inverter screen and settings and finally re-commission the solar system.

What to Expect

Before our team arrives for cleaning, repair, or maintenance work, our clients should expect the following and make preparations if necessary:

  • Our team will require access to the main switchboard and the inverter.
  • We will also need access to a water source via tap.
  • The solar system will be isolated and turned off for an hour.
  • We clean up after ourselves — no mess, no fuss.
  • We offer a six-month workmanship warranty for our solar cleaning services.
  • We’ll leave no scratches and marks on solar panels while doing our work.

 

Our services will be performed by a fully qualified electrician and CEC-accredited solar technician. With ten years worth of solar knowledge and top-notch professionalism, our work is guaranteed to be smooth, efficient and thorough, ensuring your panels will be restored to optimal performance.
