Many people jump into solar panels with DIY routes, but this isn’t always the cheapest route, and never the most efficient. Tidying up solar panels isn’t as straightforward as it may seem. As Las Vegas floods in with solar panels maintaining them seems to be a challenge. Build up needs to be taken care of, but how do you know whether to hire professional solar cleaning services or not? If the job seems to be hazardous, is in a dry/dusty area such as Las Vegas, or if it is in/near a factory facility or composting facilities where buildup happens more often it is recommended to have them professionally maintained.
Las Vegas has plenty of dirt and debris that builds on your solar panels, but you know what else it has? Bird poop, pigeon poop more often than not. The droppings are more detrimental than build up of Las Vegas dust. Las Vegas has tons of pigeons, and this makes it even more important to regularly employ solar panel cleaning services.
