As a homeowner, it is really important to keep your home and all of its components clean. The roof is no exception. Clean roofs look nicer, last longer, and increase your property value. But what if you have a Tesla Solar Roof? Can you pressure wash them?
The short answer is, you can – as long as the pressure is under 1,200 PSI. Tesla Solar Roofing is incredibly durable, which is one thing we love about it the most. But here’s the thing: you shouldn’t need to pressure wash your Tesla Solar Roof.
Why Tesla Solar Roofs Don’t Require Pressure Washing
Tesla Solar Roofs are considered to be self-cleaning. They are designed with a nice texture so when it rains, dirt and grime quickly wash from the roof. The solar shingles are designed this way to ensure they always stay clean. A dirty solar array won’t capture nearly as much sunlight as a clean one.
Tesla Solar Roofs are more similar to metal roofs than shingle roofs when it comes to their cleaning needs. Just as dirt and leaves slide right off a metal roof, they slide right off a Tesla Solar Roof.
Hire Pros to Clean Your Tesla Solar Roof
If your Tesla Solar Roof does ever start to look dirty, you are better off hiring professionals to clean it rather than washing it yourself. Walking on a Tesla Solar Roof is not advised. You won’t damage the roof — it’s more than strong enough to withstand your weight — but you are at risk of slipping. The surface is meant to whisk dirt away, making it very slippery when wet.
