Water corrosion, is first off the better of the of liquid damage, however liquids and electronic equipment are not compatible. Add a voltage and and you can see the corrosive effect start, almost like its being fast forwarded. Essentially that’s exactly what is happening, corrosion is the breakdown of material, usually metal, by a chemical reaction with its environment. The most common form of corrosion occurs with you combine metal with water and oxygen, creating iron oxide. Other minerials complicate it further (sugar, milk etc), now add a little voltage from a power source or a battery and you get an accelerated breakdown.
What are the affects of corrosion, is it repairable?
What to do when your computer has been exposed to liquid.
No incorrect, especially if its not just water, drying will extend the time the computer is exposed. Any other minerals like sugars (syrup is conductive) will not just disappear when dry, in fact they will hamper cleaning.
No incorrect, liquid is not solid form is will move, therefore moving the exposure to a larger area. We advise to keep any movement to minimum unless removing any power sources. In doubt contact us.
It's important that this is done correctly.
We have the right tools
We have the correct chemicals
We have specialised equipment
We know how important your data is, in the event that you do not have a backup of your data we will prioritise the cleaning of the data storage.
Cleaning is normally performed same day as a priority service, however drying, testing etc. may mean that you could be without your computer for a few days.
Although we have a good success rate with liquid damage you should be prepared that this is a last chance scenario and that they are no guarantees.
