Why Pure Water?
Deionized pure water does not contain any chemical which will not damage solar panels. It is also just as effective as using a cleaning agent while costing just a little bit more. By using the DI water you’re extending the life of the solar panels. Helping you save money in the long run. Research and data on solar panels show that the efficiency of panels not cleaned regularly can rapidly drop.
Cleaning has been shown to drastically increase solar output. Rain is actually be harming your solar panels by being aggressive as a result of pollution. If not carefully chosen, chemical products may be aggressive to the panel materials, reducing transparency. Orange County water has a lot of calcium and other hard mineral deposits in it. So using just regular hose water can damage your panels just as easy as using a harmful cleaning agent. So leave it up to the pros and don’t have chemical waste products dispersed into your soil or drainage system. We make sure are jobs are done in compliance with local environmental regulations.
Why clean your solar panels twice a year?
Orange County is turning to the future of renewable energy. Due to Orange County’s great weather sun is not hard come by. Solar panels are now popping up on everyone’s roof top. Who better to clean them other than your neighborhood cleaning specialist? We do a lot more than just window cleaning here at Superior Windows. We now have the latest in solar panel cleaning technology. It is a called a deionized water machine. This runs your homes water through a resin filled tank that captures any impurities in the water. The water is then disbursed through a brush that is attached to a telescopic pole.
The gentle bristles help clean not harm your new expensive solar panels. Solar panels are constantly exposed to various types of weather and are thus a target for dirt, dust, industrial residues, atmospheric pollution, algae, moss, bird droppings, and other natural and other unnatural elements. The agents responsible for deterioration of the surfaces also include the chemicals used during the cleaning process. These form an excellent attraction for dirt and accelerate the deterioration process, with negative repercussions on the appearance and, above all, the function of the structure. The presence of these elements on the panel’s surface prevents the sun’s rays from filtering onto the panel’s photovoltaic cells completely, reducing the solar performance and therefore efficiency. Accumulated dirt residues reduce efficiency and may damage the material the panels are made from. Cleaning is therefore an indispensable part of the maintenance of these structures and the frequency of the cleaning depends on the geographic area and climate. Industrial areas may require more thorough maintenance than rural areas.
Orange County’s Air & Space wind tunnel clean up report
Here at superior windows there is no job to big or too small. On this occasion we had our work cut out for us. The tunnel is broken up into 7 different areas.
Every room had its own unique way of being cleaned. Some rooms contained sensors and other important instruments that needed to be wrapped up in order to not harm them. A majority of the rooms had to be pretreated with special degreasing agents due to the testing materials left behind.
We Worked 16 hour days and finished the pressure washing of the wind tunnels on schedule. Operations for business at the wind tunnel began on time the following week. We know deadlines have to be met. Business owners and property managers love us because we get the job done right and on time.
Scaffolding was set up to reach the 30’’ plus ceilings. Exhaust debris left behind needed to be hand treated with a degreasing agents before we used are pressure washer.
