Water Damage

Device took a plunge? Remember the sooner you can bring in your device after it has been water damaged, the better!

Did you drop your phone in the sink, the bath, the pool, the ocean, a puddle, slush…or worse? At STS Repair, we can perform a Water Damage Service to your device and if required, replace damaged modular components and individual micro-electronic components to get it working again.

Please do not put your device in a bag of rice!! This is an internet myth and often causes more damage to your device. The secret to a successful water damage repair is having it quickly decontaminated by a qualified technician.

The Liquid Decontamination Service includes:

  • Complete disassembly of the device,
  • Removal of the protective shields to ensure that the entire surface of the main circuit board is accessible (the shields cover nearly 80% of the circuit board!),
  • Visual inspection under a microscope of the entire surface of the circuit board and of all the major components,
  • Decontamination treatment in a laboratory-grade, sweep-frequency ultrasonic bath with specialized chemicals for delicate electronic circuit boards,
  • Displace any remaining water by immersing the circuit board in 99% pure isopropyl alcohol,
  • Dry the circuit board in an oven to eliminate any final traces of liquids.

Upon reassembly, a complete diagnostic will be performed to determine what needs to be repaired on your device. In some cases, a decontamination treatment may be sufficient. Otherwise, an estimate will be communicated to you; you can approve the repair or your device will be returned to you.
