About MacBook Water Damage:

The problem of water-damaged MacBooks is common since we carry these devices everywhere. Exposure to liquids can wreak havoc on an unwary MacBook.

What happens when water covers your device’s motherboard? Why does liquid cause such problems for your device?

Electronics and water do not go well together. Components begin to fail; things stop functioning correctly, and eventually, your device will stop working if the necessary steps are not taken.

Liquid on circuit boards causes corrosion and oxidation resulting in the degradation of metals. Nothing good ever really comes of this. A circuit board corrodes just like a car rusts and eventually dies. Electronic devices suffer from various problems when liquid is introduced into their environment. The resistance between the components drops, metals break down, and solder joints deteriorate as corrosion spreads.

Corrosion causes pits and cracks in areas where electricity once freely flowed. In addition, the formation of metal fibers/clusters tends to occur, which bridges oppositely charged leads and causes arcing, or them to short out and fail.

The type of liquid significantly affects how quickly corrosion will spread. Fresh water is your friend when it comes to liquid damage; this is because they contain the least amount of corrosion accelerators compared to other liquids.

Salt water and chlorine are two of the worst types of liquid you can drop your device in. They contain elements that are heavy corrosion accelerators, which rapidly increase the spread of corrosion and kill your circuits. In addition, when salt water/chlorine drys up, they will leave minerals and deposits on the circuit board. These minerals will eat up the circuit board in a matter of hours.

With all our experience, the devices that have had the greatest success rate of surviving liquid exposure are those whose last contact was with fresh water.
