CBR Gutter Cleaning Canberra

Solar Panel Cleaning Canberra

Solar panels are a good, environmentally friendly way of saving some extra money on energy, and these days, any money saved should be applauded. But one thing about them you probably haven’t realized might help you save that little bit more. And something as simple as cleaning your solar panels can be all that it takes.
 
As you know, solar panels need access to the sun’s rays, and for them to be working at their best, the full surface of the panel should see the sun. However, over time, they become dirty and covered with all manner of dust, and other contaminants. If parts of your solar panels are not seeing the sun becomes they are being covered by mud, dirt, vegetation, or the droppings of the local bird population, it stands to reason that they are not working at their full capacity, and costing you money.

You paid a lot of money on your solar panels; to recoup this, they really need to be working at their best, at all times. One of the best ways to do this is to ensure that the surface of the solar panel is always available to as much sunlight as is available.
 
And one of the best ways to do that is to have your solar panels regularly cleaned. At CBR Gutter Cleaning Canberra, we also clean solar panels, and a regularly scheduled cleaning service with us will ensure that they are operating at full capacity.
 
So, perhaps we’ve convinced you that you need your solar panels cleaned. Perhaps now, though, we need to convince you that we should clean the panels, rather than you do it yourself.
 
Unless you have experience and have been trained, working on the roof is difficult and risky. Roofs often are heavily slopped, as their purpose, other to make sure the elements don’t get inside to where you are, is to ensure that water doesn’t remain on them. Consequently, they can also be very slippery. Sometimes, all it takes is for one moment of lack of concentration, one second’s distraction, one wrong-placed foot stepping somewhere it shouldn’t, and you can fall. And a fall from the height of your roof can cause you serious damage, maybe even death.

Every year, 20 people die in Australia from incidents related to ladders. Carrying equipment up the ladder to your roof comes with risk, stepping from the ladder to the roof or vice versa comes with risk, walking a steep roof comes with risk.

Even placing your ladder against the roof comes with risk as you need to be sure that the gutter, or whatever is taking the brunt of the weight, is strong enough to take the weight … and as explained in our Gutter Cleaning service page, clogged gutters sometimes buckle and sag under the weight of the blockage.
 
It’s a lot of risk for something that you don’t need to do yourself. Let us. Our contractors are trained and experienced in working on roofs.

Perhaps you’re now thinking, ‘Ok, I should get my solar panels cleaned … but how often do they need to be cleaned.’
 
It all depends on some environmental factors, but use the following guidelines to give you some idea:

  • Is it often windy? Because dirt on the wind can effect them.
  • Are there a lot of tall trees around? Because trees drop leaves, sap, fruit, attract birds and provide access for possums to get to your roof.
  • Do you live in built up commercial areas? Because such areas have more pollution, and this could build up particulate matter on your solar panels.

 
To be safe, we’d say that you should have them cleaned every three to six months.
