MacBook / MacBook

macbook pro water damageYou tried to be as careful as you could be with your MacBook Pro. When you first bought it, you wouldn’t let anyone 10 feet from it have a drink in their hand, never mind have one on the desk next to it. However, as time went by, you became comfortable, and you even started to sit drinks next to it, so you could work while hydrating. Now, the unthinkable has happened. You spilled your drink all over your MacBook Pro.

What do you do now?

MacBook Pro Water Damage Prevention

#1: Unplug it.

You need to cut off all current to the MacBook Pro before it shorts out.

#2: Turn the Power Off

When the power is on, you have electricity actively running through it. Turn it off, and you decrease the chance of frying your computer.

#3: Remove the Battery

Even though you unplugged the computer and turned the power off, you still have to remove the battery because it carries an electrical current.

#4: Turn it Upside Down and Shake

Keep the laptop open and turn it upside down. Hold onto it securely, and then shake it. Remove as much water from the keyword as possible.

Do this for a while because you need to make sure you get as much water out of it as possible. The most important part of the MacBook Pro is the logic board. If you can prevent it from getting wet, you’ll save a lot of money in a MacBook repair.
