Did you read through your warranty? Well, you might want to. Many companies, as part of their warranty, require proof of regular cleanings. If you don’t keep the panels clean you may be out of luck if something goes wrong.


Like the windows in your home or your car. They get dirty. Dust and dirt are in the atmosphere. It collects on the solar panels and forms a film. This must be cleaned off for the panels to run efficiently. Experts find that performance and efficiency are compromised. The sun needs a clean surface to penetrate. Having your panels cleaned regularly will help with efficiency.

Inspection Needed

Wear and tear takes place on every surface without cleaning. Your solar panels are no exception. If sand and grime continue to stay on your panels it breaks down the durability. Over time the solar panels become worn down because of the debris that is collected on them.

What Causes a Dirty Solar Panel?

  • Rain – Water can seep into and between the panels and cause rust and corrosion. This can cause damage to the panels and cells. This can prevent electricity from flowing through the panels.
  • Debris – Leaves, animals on the roof, and plants can cause blockage of electricity to the panels.
  • Dust – Dust can build up on and around the panels. If not cleaned out regularly can cause damage to the panels as well.
