Laptop Liquid Spill Repair

We offer a specialist repair & clean up service for laptops following liquid damage. We can strip it down & dry it out to rescue your computer – tea, coffee, wine, beer, juice, milk, or water spills. 

Liquids and electricity don’t mix, and any liquid spills on electronic devices are generally bad news.  With specialist repair & clean up services for laptops following liquid damage, our service includes a strip down and dry out to rescue your precious computer from tea, coffee, wine, beer, juice, milk, or water spills.

The first point of contact for most liquid damage to most laptop computers is generally the keyboard. And whilst external keyboards on desktop computers are easy to clean or replace, laptop keyboards more complex as laptop keyboards are connected directly to the motherboard by thin cables.  This can either cause fatal damage or can simply short circuit the keyboard, causing some of the keys to stop working.

Simply drying off the device and keyboard is a start, and although your computer may work initially – sticky residue from coffee or sugary or alcoholic drinks can cause slow long term damage in the form of mould, mildew, or corrosion taking sometimes weeks, or months for the full extent of the damage to become apparent.

Our ‘Strip Down & Dry Out’ service addresses all external and internal issues of a spill. And we can replace a keyboard if needed, as well as check and remove all signs of liquid damage or corrosion too.

  • Full Corrosion Chemical Cleaning:  if needed there is an additional fee but it’s not charged if your device does not recover fully.
  • Replacement Keyboard / RAM / Drives: replaced if needed & quoted in advance.
  • Data Transfer: to other drives if needed at no additional cost

What to do immediately after a spill…

Turn your computer upside down immediately after the spill, turn it off, take out the battery and avoid turning on until you are sure the computer is completely dry.

Remove detachable components such as chargers, mice, cables, flash drives and DVD’s.

In the case of a liquid damaged iPhone or iPad, simply disconnect from any power source, dry fully with a cloth and bring it straight into us. Power off and don’t turn it back on until the device has been stripped down and fully dried out.

Remember, never try to turn your device on if your spill is more than a few drops or you suspect it’s not fully dried out.
