At one point you have gone through a scenario of liquid spillage on your smartphone or Laptop computer but you had no idea what was the best action you would have taken to secure it. Whether it is water,your favorite coffee or any other liquid an appropriate action has to be taken immediately when such accidents occur.
In as much as there are ways to secure and still get your gadget functioning normally, the longer your phone or laptop stays in water or liquid the lower the chances of recovering it. It is therefore important to immediately remove your gadget from water as soon as possible.
Take the following steps immediately to recover and secure your gadget.
1. Remove it from the Liquid
If your gadget was completely immersed in water,remove it immediately and wipe any excess water on the surface using a piece of cloth.
2. Switch off and remove battery
If the affected phone or laptop is on, switch it off and remove the battery if it is removable. Do not make an attempt to switch it on. Switching it on in that condition is likely to damage the motherboard or the screen. Water conducts electric current thus causing short circuiting and other damages on your gadget.
3.Dry it Up
With the battery removed, try drying your phone or laptop with home dry or blower to dry up the excess water. If possible unscrew to effectively dry the motherboard.
4. See a Technician
If your phone does not power up kindly see a technician to access the degree of damage and repair cost. Otherwise the above steps should be enough to help you recover your gadget and use it.
It should be noted that if the degree of damage is high the repair cost will be higher and the chances of your gadget working again will be slim
