Has your iPhone or iPod recently found its way into the toilet or been left in the rain and now has water damange in need of repair? Liquid is almost certainly the worst fate for your device, but it doesn’t necessarily mean that there’s no hope for it. Our expert iPod and iPhone water damage specialists can save your device; there are some important steps to take though:
The first thing you are going to think to do in this situation is to power it on. DON’T DO THAT! That almost certainly will give your logic board a shock that it cannot recover from. We have had much success in repairing iPhones that have suffered liquid damage, but it is very important to get them taken care of as soon as possible. We recommend these simple steps for best results.
1. If salt water or other highly corrosive liquids, take the damaged device and dip into fresh water 2 – 3 times. Just for a quick second dip and lightly shake the liquid out through the dock port on the bottom. This process is basically just rinsing the corrosive liquids out of the phone.
2. Place the wet phone into a bag or a bowl with silica packets or either dry, uncooked rice. These materials will help to draw the moisture out of the phone. This is a time consuming process as it normally will take 4 – 5 days to completely remove all of the moisture.
3. CALL US! We will disassemble, clean all components, and troubleshoot to get the damaged parts replaced. Our Water-Damage Repair Service normally takes about 24 hours and our success rate is quite high.
