Improve Panel Performance

This is somewhat obvious, but it is important to keep in mind that rainfall is not consistent and prevalent enough in Los Angeles to clean the panels. In fact a thorough panel cleaning has been shown to increase panel efficiency up to 21%.

Manufacturers Warranty

It is important to remember that when you were having your panels installed you were most likely provided with documentation from the manufacturer regarding a specified regular cleaning schedule. Having professional cleaning service receipts on hand could protect you in the future if a situation were ever to arise.




Increase Panel Life

As dirt and particles gather on the panels and sits for a lengthy period of time it can begin to wear through the protective coating layers. This effect is similar that dirt on a car eventually leading to permanently damaged paint.
