Solar panel cleaning

Did you know?

Did you know that dirty solar panels impact the maximum output your solar panels can produce?

Pollen, moss, lichen, soot and bird droppings all contribute to a build-up of dirt on your solar panels.

These combined create a shading on the solar panels which will prevent sunlight reaching the cells. This directly results in poor system performance, loss of efficiency and ultimately a loss of financial return.


Chances are that Toughgaard will already be carrying out one of our external cleaning services on your property. This means that we will already be on hand to service any solar panels you have around your property, saving you the hassle of calling out another cleaning company to get a quote.

We have build up an abundance of experience cleaning residential properties and we possess the latest technology in our 36ft water-fed pole system to deal with most awkward positioned solar panels, while working from the ground.

Our SOLAR PANEL Cleaning Service in 5 steps

Step 1. We assess the height and angle of your solar panels. Our safe working reach from the ground is 36ft, so we want to ensure we can reach your panels safely and efficiently before commencing the clean.

Step 2. We use specialised soft bristle brushes which allows us to agitate any dirt which has accumulated on your panels.

Step 3. We do not use any soaps to clean your panels, only purified water on a lower-than-usual water pressure.

Step 4. We will lightly go over the panels using our brush and purified water until your solar panels are clean.
