Spill liquid or water on your apple or pc laptop? Not a problem. One of our techs, Jim, has developed a 3-step process that gives CompuTechs+ a 95% laptop repair success rate for laptops. The process takes just a few hours to complete, and we’ve been blown away by its success. Best part is that if you do have liquid damage on your mac laptop, just mention this post & if the repair is not successful you will get a discounted diagnostic rate from $69.99 down to $39.99 – We’re that confident with our process. If successful, then the rate is our current $199.99 flat-repair-rate.
What to do if you spill on your laptop: Turn the laptop off immediately, unplug it, remove battery (if possible), and shake out any excess liquid. After that, place rice in a tub, and place a single layer of paper towels on the rice, and place the laptop upside down on the paper towels. Leave for 2-7 days, depending on the amount of liquid spilled on the machine. We do not recommend attempting to turn the laptop on, mainly because there could be excess liquid still remaining inside the laptop. Better safe than sorry, but if you have a $1500+ laptop, our flat-repair rate is well worth the cost.
What kind of liquids are the worst? We’ve found that although smelly & sticky, that anything other than water seems to have the least amount of damage on the machine. That being said, water is probably the worst – in the 5% (unsuccessful liquid damage repairs), they were almost all water based spills.
