Was your electronic device dropped in the toilet accidentally? Did you jump in the pool with your phone, leave it in the rain, or accidentally throw it in the Washing Machine? It has happened to the best of us, accidentally dropping a smartphone or electronic device in water and then frantically trying anything and everything to recover it.
Water damage can cause significant problems with the delicate internal circuitry in your phone or any electronic device, leaving it inoperable and your information is gone for good. Leaving liquid within the device will slowly corrode the internal subtle parts, this corrosion will start within 24 hours however sometimes the signs won’t show up for a week or even a month. The more liquid left in your device, the less chance to have the device repaired.
Safety note: do not touch a phone that is wet and plugged into a charger!
Here are some Do’s and Don’ts:
Remove the battery if removable, sim card, memory card, and anything else that might be plugged into the device.
Dry gently with an absorbent towel.
Don’t push any buttons! This could force water further into the circuits.
Don’t use a hairdryer on the phone – this could also push water into the phone and do further damage.
Don’t move the phone more than you have to. It is best to keep the phone still to prevent water from spreading throughout the device.
Don’t turn the phone on too soon. It is best to wait 24 hours before attempting to turn your phone back on.
