Producing your own electricity by installing a Solar Panel System is the best step to take. If you have installed this system in your house you will need cleaning services to make sure that the system is entirely clean. Solar Panel Cleaning is required for best panel performance. Most common solar panels consist of solar cells covered by a glass coating, for protective purposes. The dirtier this coating becomes, the more the efficiency of the solar panel in question will decline.
The loss in solar panel efficiency can be caused by several factors. If the panel surface is obstructed by pollution, traffic dust, leaves or even bird droppings, this may result in loss of efficiency due to the prevention of light that reaches the panel cells. While many factors affect how much electricity your solar panels will produce, dirty solar panels can be one of the biggest factors and one of the easiest to fix. Even better is trying to prevent the problem in the first place.
How we do Solar Panel Cleaning?
Platinum Elite Services believes in delivering highest quality services to its customers. Our expert cleaners use purified water and necessary tools like soft brushes to clean the solar panels. We do not use any sort of chemical because it will damage your panels. Keep in mind, solar panels do not require frequent cleaning. Just make sure to get them cleaned once a year, or if you suffer from heavy dirt build up, twice a year. Cleaning them will make sure that panels are working at 100% efficiency.
Our teams are fully equipped with the right tools and they are trained to complete the cleaning procedure in the correct way. When cleaning the panels we use a very light force of water because high pressure can split the seals, which could cause damage to the system and affect warranties. Our brilliant staff work carefully, they understand the requirement of this system and they use the most professional approach during the whole process. Hire us to get your solar panels entirely clean!
The water purification process is done by a 4 stage reverse osmosis system which is comprised of multiple filters. The first 2 stages are paper and carbon filters, it then goes through the reverse osmosis membrane. The final stage of the process is the water passing through a DI vessel, this polishes the water resulting in the water having a TDS of ZERO parts per million.

Step 1. Make an Enquiry
You can make an enquiry via text or talk to one of our friendly customer assistants. They will talk you through the process of the clean, and how to make payment. We will ask for your name, address, and mobile phone number.
Step 2. Get your Quote
Once we have your information we will come round and quote in person. We’ll tell you what will happen during the clean and how it is preformed. The member of the team can also go through the payment options with yourself.
Step 3. The Night Before
The evening before your clean you will receive a text from us confirming that we’ll be round to clean the following day. After that, the van will get filled up with purified water. Normal tap water gets processed through our reverse osmosis system which is comprised of multiple filters.
Step 4. Arriving at your Property
The van arrives with the tank of purified water as well as water fed poles. The cleaner will prepare all the equipment needed for your clean. Our equipment is extremely effective and safe, we use water-fed poles that allow us to reach your solar panels with the use of ladders. These will extend to the fifth floor. This is a much safer way of cleaning and it also eliminates the risk of any damage to your property.
Step 5. The Clean
The cleaner will extend the pole up to your highest point first and work down from there. The Deionised water is pumped through the special brush attachment to the top of the extended pole and sprayed over the dirty solar panels. Then they’ll scrub the panels with the brush to agitate the dirt, marks and stubborn stains. Then purified water is sprayed on them to wash away the dirt. The process also helps create a protective coating on the panels surface, which keeps them clean for longer.
Step 6. Optional Extras
We offer a few optional extras. Why not add a Fascia/Soffits clean or a Gutter clear out. We could also clean your conservatory if you have one.
