Learn more who we are

At Suns Solar Cleaning, we understand the significance of cleaning an investment as substantial as your solar panels, which are among the largest purchases a homeowner will ever make. While some solar panel cleaners may underestimate its importance, resorting to basic methods like spraying panels with a garden hose, applying soap, and brushing it off casually, we hold ourselves to a higher standard.

We recognize the potential risks associated with using hard water and soap on solar panels, including warranty voidance, the buildup of calcium deposits that corrode panels, and residue left behind in micro-crack areas.

That’s why we exclusively use softened deionized water with our industry-leading solar cleaning brushes. This ensures the safe and effective removal of debris from your panels, allowing you to maximize their energy output worry-free.

Additionally, you can have peace of mind knowing that we are a licensed, bonded, and insured business in Sacramento, proficient in professionally cleaning your solar panels.

"Professional service. Came in on time and took care of my 36 Solar panels. I was hesitant at first but after seeing the results it's unbelievable. Now I'm getting about 20 to 30 percent more power from my panels. Even though they are 2 years old they made them look amazing. I Will most likely get them to clean my panels every year.. Thank you Sun's Solar Crew. GREAT JOB."

Before and after solar panel wash

Here's the truth about washing your solar panels.

Have you ever questioned whether your solar panels require cleaning? Many solar installation companies claim that solar panels don’t need cleaning as rain can wash away most dirt.

While rain may slightly improve panel efficiency, it’s insufficient for panels to reach their full capacity when properly cleaned.

In regions like California, where rainfall is scarce and dust accumulates rapidly, it’s highly recommended to clean every solar panel at least every 6 months.

Accumulated dirt, grime, and particles can obstruct solar cells, reducing their exposure to UV rays and resulting in less energy production for your property.

A case study conducted by Google revealed their solar panels lost fifty percent of their energy production after 15 months without cleaning. After cleaning them again 8 months later, they regained 36 percent of their energy production.

It’s widely acknowledged in the industry that most residential solar systems lose anywhere from 20-40 percent of their efficiency on average if not cleaned regularly.

In summary, frequent washing of solar panels is crucial for proper maintenance and ensuring they operate at their highest capacity.

So, when was the last time you had your panels cleaned?

Our company offers professional and safe solar panel cleaning services, eliminating the need for you to risk climbing onto the roof yourself to maintain your investment and energy efficiency.

Should You Clean your Solar Panels By Yourself?

Have you ever considered cleaning your solar panels yourself but hesitated due to uncertainty? While it may appear straightforward initially, there are numerous factors involved in proper cleaning. For homes with panels out of reach, homeowners face the risk of climbing onto their roofs for thorough cleaning. Without specialized safety equipment, they are vulnerable to injury or property damage.

We recommend utilizing an extended water-fed cleaning brush to clean the solar system from the ground whenever possible. While using any ordinary brush and water hose may seem convenient, it poses the risk of scratching panels and leaving mineral deposits from hard water. Moreover, many push brushes leave behind trails of dirt, reducing the effectiveness of the cleaning.

It’s essential to use water softened through a deionizer tank to prevent water spots or buildup. We advise against using soap or chemicals to avoid voiding your warranty. Many solar panel companies may void warranties for systems cleaned with soap due to the potential for micro-damage. Soap residue can also shade panels and attract dirt, making future cleaning more challenging.

The benefit of cleaning solar panels yourself is cost savings. You avoid the expense of hiring another company when you can do it yourself. As evident, there are many aspects to consider in this type of work. However, if you possess the knowledge to stay safe on your roof, have the necessary equipment, and are willing to invest extra time, a do-it-yourself approach to cleaning may be suitable for you.
