Water Damage Myths
Myth- Rice: putting a water damaged phone in a bag of rice or silica desiccant for a few days will save the phone.
Truth-since almost all water has minerals in it, drying your phone in rice will dry your phone and leave mineral deposits on the circuits. These deposits will eventually, if not immediately, cause short circuits within your phone causing it to fail. We take all water damaged electronics and clean them with a special ultrasonic cleaner that removes any foreign matter and minerals from all the microscopic crevices.
(yes, this even includes your Coke that somehow made it into your phone)
Check out these before and after photos of a phone we cleaned and you’ll see what is lurking if you dry it without proper cleaning. This is killer on your phone!
Myth- Hairdryer: you can use a hairdryer to dry out a water damaged phone to save it.
Truth- Using a hairdryer to dry your phone can do a few bad things:
- It can damage heat sensitive electronics within your phone
- It will force the water deeper in the phone causing more harm as it moves across the circuits
- It will still leave foreign matter and mineral deposits on the circuits that will cause premature failure (immediately or over time)
Myth- Alcohol: you can soak your battery removed electronic device in rubbing alcohol and scrub the board to clean all the minerals off
Truth- This is what most shops do to “save” water damaged devices. Have you ever tried to remove stubborn hard water stains from a bathtub faucet? If so, you know exactly what I’m talking about. You have to scrub it to death, not to mention all the harsh chemicals you used in the process.
Be warned: If you are thinking about using a local shop, be sure to ask them what process they use. If they use alcohol your chance of recovery is much less.
The alcohol method will help. But, I don’t know about you, I’m not in a position to shell out some serious dough on a new phone just because I didn’t give it my best shot. Our special ultrasonic process safely scrubs the electronic components, even ones you can’t get under. This is the same process used in the electronics industry during the final stage of production to clean off any residual impurities from manufacturing.
Warning: Do not try to recover your device with an ultrasonic jewelry cleaner, you can invoke more damage to your device. We use a special clean / dry process that is specially developed for sensitive electronics.
