Have you dropped your phone in water or spilt liquid over it? We can help. We specialise in water damage repairs. We have some of the best equipment to recovery water/liquid damaged devices. Unfortunately there is a lot of myths which are floating on the internet when it comes to water damaged phones and there are very few who take the correct approach when repairing water damage.

 

WHAT YOU SHOULD DO IF YOUR DEVICE IS WATER DAMAGED?

First things first, TURN OFF POWER if your device is NOT already off! If it is OFF do NOT try to turn it back on. If you have a removal battery please remove your battery.

Make sure all excess liquid is wiped off the device and place the device in a way where all liquid can leak out. For macbooks or laptops leave hinge open  and place face down so any remaining water can come out.

Water does not actually damage the device. It is when power is running through the circuits can not have conductance which can trigger a electrical short which can cause damage to the components on the board.

 

DOES RICE REALLY HELP WATER DAMAGE?

Often customers are mislead with the concept of putting the device into rice. SO let me explain what rice will do for your device. So for example you have dropped your device into the sink. Now some water has made its way into your device. So you read on the internet that rice miraculously repairs water damage and you put it in rice. SO the droplets of water sitting on top of the electronics circuits so far havent shorted your phone. You have turned off your device and now the device is in a bag of rice.

 

SHOULD I PUT MY DEVICE IN RICE?

Rice has an amazing ability of absorbing moisture and it does exactly that. It just helps speed up the processes of drying the water on to the electric components of your device.

NOW. Water unless distilled or absolutely pure definately has some trace elements or minerals. AND by drying that on to the electronic components of your board you have left behind a very dirty and nasty friend, something that will be eating away your board – its like cancer – its corrosion.

Surely your phone works fine now and yes it only cost you a bag of rice, but in fact you havent diagnosed the problem. It is a band aid solution and the worst kind. Imagine accelerating the cancer within.

 

WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO CLEAN WATER DAMAGED DEVICES PROPERLY.

You will need to clean the device in order to assure there will be no corrosion. The simple and cost effective way would be to scrub with some IPA (isopropyl alcohol). This will help remove most of the minerals or residue left behind. The best way to actually ensure everything is gone is to give the electronic components an ultrasonic bath. This is what we do at GadgetFix, and furthermore we repeat the process with 99.9% IPA bath. Sometimes this will not be enough as certain components have already been effected which will need to be replaced in order to bring the device back to life.
