Keep Solar Panels Clean to Maintain Your Investment
Do your solar panels have a build up of algae and pollen on them? This buildup is lowering the effectiveness of your solar panels. Solar panel cleaning companies can help you get the most out of your solar panel investment.
Benefits of Cleaning Solar Panels
If solar panels are dirty, you are missing out on the savings they are designed to provide on your power bill. Keeping solar panels clean maintains their effectiveness and allows you to get the most UV and power out of them. Solar panels that are not regularly and properly cleaned will lose up to 80% of their effectiveness.
Solar panel cleaning services are especially important in the Pacific Northwest, as we can go weeks without sun in the winter months. Solar panels that are already covered in pollen and don’t see regular sun will become coated in slime. Lack of sunlight and an increase in moisture promotes algae growth and panels that are covered in pollen and algae will stop working.
Our Solar Panel Cleaning Method
Our approach to cleaning solar panels is unique to other solar panel cleaning companies. At Moss Busters, we use a soft-bristle brush and effective detergent. The brush is specifically designed to remove the pollen and algae, but doesn’t leave any scratches on the surface of your solar panels.
After brushing the surface of the panels, we rinse the panels with water to get rid of the detergent residue. This helps decrease the amount of pollen that will stick to the newly cleaned panels.
With this method, we aim to preserve the panels themselves, while also protecting them from harmful pollen and algae.
When To Clean Solar Panels
Solar panels should be cleaned every two years to prevent the build up of pollen and algae. As soon as you see pollen and algae on the surface of your solar panels, give Moss Busters a call. We can clean solar panels during any time of the year.
Get a price break by having your solar panels cleaned at the same time as gutter or roof cleaning!
Moss Busters provided excellent service. The bid was reasonable, the service was done right, and the people who did the estimate and work were prompt, friendly, polite, and patient in responding to my concerns. My roof looks great!

The Moss Busters crew showed up on time and did a great job. They used special shoes made to reduce wear and tear on the roof as well as having stabilizers on their ladders so they didn't just lean the ladders on the gutters. I definitely will hire them again.

Excellent job! The crew took the time to move sensitive plants and adequately protected everything while the work was being done. The clean-up was especially well done.

Vitaliy and his crew were very professional and personable from start to finish. They communicated with me throughout the process. It is evident that Moss Busters takes pride in its work all the way through to completion. My roof looks brand new!

Moss Busters always does a great job of spiffing up my home. Not only did my house look great on the outside, but a few weeks later they took care of my parents’ roof as well. They are very professional and do excellent work!

Outstanding. As my husband and I drove up to our house, we were dazzled. It is a 20 year old house, but after Moss Busters' work, it looks like it was built yesterday. And the pride we feel in our home again is priceless.

I would DEFINITELY recommend using Moss Busters. The were prompt with a quote, when I had questions, Vitaliy answered them all. When I scheduled the service, they gave me an exact date and time range AND SHOWED UP!!! Will definitely use again when we need our roof cleaned next year!

It wasn't cheap, but the quality of the work was outstanding, and they got everything done within a couple hours. I have already recommended them to neighbors.

We couldn't be more pleased. We highly recommend Vitaliy to all our friends and neighbors now. We look forward to working with him again in the near future to get our driveway, sidewalk, walkways and patio cleaned.
