How Do We Remove The Lichen?

We look to reach your solar panels by tower scaffolding or cherry picker wherever possible. We then apply a chemical to the solar panels, allow it to soak in, before removing the lichen with non-scratch plastic scrapers and rinsing the solar panels down with ultra-pure water.

Will Our Lichen Chemical Invalidate Your Solar Panel Warranty?

The majority of companies offering a lichen removal service will invalidate your warranty by using a lichen removal chemical not approved for use by your solar panel manufacturer. These chemicals can corrode the framework of your panels or discolour the glass. Our lichen removal chemical has been tested and approved for use by Renesola, Solarworld, Canadian Solar and others.

Will The Lichen Come Back?

When Will Our Prices Change?

Lichen does not grow on all solar panels. There will be a reason why it is growing on your panels. This could be a lack of cleaning and algae being allowed to grow and act as a symbiot for the lichen. Nearby oak trees or nearby farming activities are other reasons for lichen growth. If you've had lichen grow on your solar panels once, you need to have your solar panels professionally cleaned at least 12-monthly to stop it returning.

The only time that we will need to increase the cost is if your array cannot be accessed using standard tower scaffold or a cherry picker. An example may be if your solar panels are located above a conservatory. There may be an additional fee to cover fixed scaffolding, which will need to be discussed and agreed prior to any commitment on your part. We may request a photograph of your property to assess the correct access.
