Water Damage Cell Phone Cleaning and Repair
Cell Phone Water Damage
Water can cause significant damage inside your cell phone. Any type of liquid may cause severe damage to the phone’s internal components, circuitry, and motherboard of the phone. Even if your phone is working at first, water inside the phone can spread to delicate internal components and eventually you may not be able to turn on the phone or recover any of your information. It is strongly recommended to bring your phone in for cleaning and repair as soon as possible
What should you do if you drop your phone in water?
- Remove the device from water as quick as possible
- Remove SIM Card, Memory Card, and Battery (if removable)
- Dry with a towel. If you have a smartphone with a removable back, open the back and dry as much as possible.
- Shake or use a hairdryer; this often pushes the water further inside the phone.
- If you have a phone with a glass back or sealed frame, do not attempt to disassemble your phone yourself as you may further damage other internal components
- Do not turn device on. Wait 24h if possible.
