    hi was wondering if anyone cleans solar panels with wfp. There seems to be loads of them popping up but never see anyone cleaning them & according to sites i have looked at the cleaner they are the better they work. So how would you price such a clean & how often would they be cleaned ? just wondered if anyone knows any info, just looking to get in at the start of something :):idea:

    What size panels are they mark because The ones on my house are 6ft x 6ft and I would charge more than that for that size, and do you use your everyday brush?

    2 quid a panel seems abit cheap? esp on a house......

    haven't cleaned any yet but heard people are quoting up to 6 quid a panel......

    remember your insurance may not cover you for any damage, depending on policy.

    Sorry not enough detail in last e-mail

    Minimum charge £20.00 if i am already cleaning there house .
    it sounds cheap but you get a house with 12 panels which is quiet normally 4x3 ft total £24.00 takes 15 minutes nice earner then they get you twice a year as per my website . If it is a customer who i do not clean for i charge minimum £30

    I would love to say i have excellent carbon fibre pole but i dont. For doing solar panels on a house i found you need at least 45ft pole and mine is a heavy alloy brodex pole but thankfully lol you are not using it long enough to worry to much
