    Trust in our Qualified MacBook Water Damage Repair Service

    If you’ve previously taken your liquid-damaged MacBook to Apple, you may have been informed about their Flat Rate repair cost and the need to replace the entire motherboard for certain repairs. However, at Smart Addiction, we have the capability to repair your damaged motherboard at the component level, often at a significantly lower cost compared to Apple’s motherboard replacement charges. Our skilled technicians conduct all motherboard repairs right in our store, ensuring a swift turnaround time of just three days.

    Remember, if your MacBook experiences a liquid spill, it is crucial to cease using it immediately. Attempting to power on a liquid-damaged motherboard can lead to electricity passing through shorted components, potentially causing further harm.

However, severe water damage may result in irreparable damage or data loss. Acting quickly and consulting an expert is crucial for the best possible outcome.

    How do you fix a MacBook that got water in it?

    When dealing with a MacBook that has suffered from water damage, it is crucial to take immediate action. Firstly, turn off the MacBook and disconnect any power source to prevent further damage. Carefully dry the exterior of the MacBook using a soft cloth, ensuring to remove any visible moisture. To allow excess liquid to drain out, position the MacBook upside down. However, refrain from attempting to power on or charge the MacBook until it has been professionally inspected and repaired. To ensure a proper and thorough restoration, it is highly recommended to bring the MacBook to a qualified repair service that specializes in water damage repair.


    How long does it take for water to damage a laptop?

    The time it takes for water to damage a laptop can vary, but at Smart Addiction, we advise immediate action if water exposure occurs. Even a brief moment of water contact can lead to significant damage to sensitive electronic components. The liquid can cause short circuits, corrosion, and oxidation, compromising the laptop’s functionality.

    We recommend turning off the laptop and disconnecting any power source immediately. It’s crucial to avoid attempting to power on the laptop or charge it, as this can further exacerbate the damage. Instead, bring your laptop to us as soon as possible for a thorough inspection and professional repair.
