We are the specialist company for cleaning solar and photovoltaic systems. We carry out this work for our customers with our own height access technologies. With our roots in traditional industrial cleaning, we have expertise in the areas of glass cleaning and organic pollution.

Increased yield through professional cleaning
It is normally assumed that in central Europe natural cleaning of solar modules by rain and snow is sufficient and that therefore no additional manual cleaning is required. However, studies have shown that cleaning demonstrably increases the yield.

As Prof. Dr. H. Häberlin and Ch. Renken from the Bern University of Applied Sciences, CH-3400 Burgdorf have demonstrated in several studies, in some cases there were considerable decreases in output of up to 13.8 % in the tested systems. The dirt streak phenomenon was even observed on modules installed at an angle of 65°. Up to 13.8% more power yield with a perfectly maintained photovoltaic system!

Environmentally friendly and maintains its value
We ensure streak-free drying with ultra-pure water or reverse osmosis water. This water has a high level of dirt absorption, i.e. by removing minerals from the water, extremely soft water (without limescale) is produced. We thus achieve an environmentally friendly, high cleaning effect. Without chemical additives. Therefore, system owners expect that, as a specialist company, we can maintain the value of the modules through cleaning.

The name of solarclean worldwide stands for absolute cleanliness. When our company was founded 25 years ago, we already focused on maintaining the value of the surfaces to be cleaned. Therefore, in addition to our customers' requirements, basic research in surface treatment has top priority.

Through permanent training and further training, our employees obtain the necessary specialist expertise to meet the needs of our customers. Over 10 years of experience in professional photovoltaic cleaning. We thus reliably ensure quality, since constantly satisfied customers ensure our success. These customers attest to and appreciate our flexibility, versatility and punctuality. Worldwide.

Our sense of responsibility applies not only to our customers but also to the environment. For this reason, all the materials and processes we use are critically and carefully tested for their effects on the environment and further developed.
