After a fire or water loss, your possessions require skilled technicians and specialized equipment to restore these items back to their pre-loss condition. A knowledgeable team will identify the material and construction of each item to ensure the proper methods. Cleaning with state-of-the-art equipment and special chemicals ensure the best results for your contents.
Water damage in your home can ruin furniture, degrade building materials, and destroy expensive electronics. It isn’t the water alone that causes problems. It is the impurities in the water that connect to contact points within the device. If the device is on, the electric current can be sent to places that it shouldn’t go and that causes damage. If those impurities don’t make contact with the connections in your device and create a short then your device may be completely fine. The water does not automatically destroy devices, but it can trigger problems.
Even if your electronic device survives a water incident there is a chance of problems in the future. Water can cause corrosion, a chemical reaction, with metal and the circuit board. Electronics can often function with some corrosion, but you may notice issues or complete failure over time. If your electronics were completely submerged in water, the internal circuitry is likely to be beyond repair.
A flood puts you at risk for electrocution if you make physical contact with floodwaters. Stay out of standing water until the restoration team arrives. If the item was powered on at the time of submersion, the likelihood of salvaging the item decreases drastically. Plus, water damaged items can not be tossed in the trash–they still should be recycled properly
