Spill damaged? Need data recovery?
You may have a very short time to approach a data recovery shop and rescue data from your MacBook, MacBook Pro, iPhone, iPad or any other computer or computing devices. Water or most of the liquid items behave as conductor or semi conductor. As soon as it comes in contact with computing device, it begins to facilitate corrosion. This is not a healthy stuff for any electronic devices. As corrosion spreads, it begins to damage components. Seemingly that once the components are failing, data recovery from such spill damaged device is quite difficult. In most cases, the delay means a fatal end of the device. Such will only end up making data recovery quite impossible.
Don’t try rice treatment. It doesn’t make sense.
The earlier your approach, the better chances stand for recovery. Hence, instead of putting device in a heap of rice, rush to recovery shop and let them take care of your device. That is the safest approach. As far as the liquid substance, gently wipe it out from the device using dry cloth or paper towel or napkins in an emergency.
The most likely cases we have seen for years is that the users try to power on or plug in the devices after a while hoping that it may turn on. They just fail to acknowledge that turning on the device or trying to power it on will sometimes completely destroy it. As highlighted above, the ever spreading corrosion will assist blasting a hole in the circuit board or chips as soon as the power travels. Now, imagine what would happen if you likely turned on a liquid impacted device? It will fail except a handful of lucky events of surviving electronic devices that suffered liquid impact. This is just a coincident that the liquid at that particular device did not have physical impact on the circuit like or the electronic components inside.
