How not to clean your solar panels

HOW NOT TO CLEAN YOUR SOLAR PANELS. 1) Use a hard bristled floor brush on your solar panels or use a soft bristled brush without enough constant filtered water on your panels. 2) NEVER EVER USE those commercial window cleaners in a spray bottle that clip on your hose, They either have chemicals such as ammonia caustic or acidic properties that eat away at the dirt and grime, but at the same time damage your hydrophobic or anti reflective coatings on your solar panels.

Get your solar panels cleaned and inspected by a professional and get it done right.
