Liquid Spill Damage

If you find yourself with a wet laptop, or a device that is not working 100% after it has been spilled on, we can help!

Liquids can short out keyboards, make them malfunction, damage motherboards, and worse! Because liquid spreads, it can even touch components far away from the initial spill radius. Water is the least damaging and beverages with sugar are most damaging.

If you are dealing with a fresh liquid spill do not panic, please IMMEDIATELY turn off device, follow the instructions below, and call your trusted IT professionals at 860.239.0708 !

1.  First, turn off the device and unplug it.

2.  Next, wipe off excess water & then leave the device  open and ON ITS SIDE if possible, to dry for 24 - 48 hours.

3. BEFORE TURNING DEVICE BACK ON please take it to your trusted computer expert for diagnosis.

-Malfunctioning keyboard-Malfunctioning touchpad

Do I need to replace my device? Maybe not!

Each spill is unique, and so each solution is unique too! Depending on the severity and substance of the spill, we may be able to revive your device without replacement parts.
