Solar panels are one of the most efficient, environmentally friendly solutions on the market, and the number of solar panel homes raises drastically every year.
But once you buy solar panels, how do you maintain them?
Do you need to clean your solar panels, or should you just let the rain “do its job”?
Although rain may wash away any leaves, it doesn’t help a lot with dust and dirt that may accumulate.
Which leads us to today’s subject, cleaning your home’s solar panels.
When should you clean your home’s solar panels?
It all depends on the area in which you live; if you live in an area with frequent rain showers, you will probably need to clean them less frequently.
In autumn, when leaves fall, they can get caught up in solar panels blocking the light and causing issues for you, so in this period, you will need to do the cleaning more frequently.
Typically, you can check on them once or twice a month and see if there is any dust, dirt, bird droppings, or leaves and how much.
