  1. Are there any specific brands of microfiber cloths recommended for solar panel cleaning?
    While specific brand recommendations may vary, look for microfiber cloths with a high GSM (grams per square meter) for better absorbency and durability.
  2. Can I use regular household cleaning products with a microfiber cloth on solar panels?
    You don’t need any chemical to clean the panels. Even a damp microfiber cloth can remove heavy bird droppings.
  3. How often should I clean my solar panels with a microfiber cloth?
    Cleaning frequency depends on the local environment. In dusty or polluted areas, cleaning every 8-10 days is recommended in India, while less polluted areas may require cleaning every 2-3 weeks.
  4. Can I use a microfiber cloth on solar panels during extreme weather conditions?
    Microfiber cloths are suitable for various weather conditions. However, avoid cleaning during extreme heat to prevent rapid drying of cleaning solutions, which may leave streaks.
  5. Are there any additional tools or accessories recommended for optimal solar panel cleaning?
    A soft-bristle brush or a squeegee can be used alongside a microfiber cloth for stubborn dirt, but always ensure they are non-abrasive to prevent damage to the panels. Call us if you need any help in cleaning the solar panels.
