What Do You Do With Your Electronics After A Water Leak?
SERVPRO® Professionals are here to help you save your precious resources.
Leakages are a common problem in homes. Many homeowners have electronics in their homes, so a water leak could cause major damage. You should hire experts who can protect these items, given the hidden costs of data and equipment loss.
What is the typical damage that a water leaking pipe can cause?
A water leaking in your residence can cause problems with other electronics. It is crucial to ensure that your electronics are not in danger.
What are the first steps to take if electronics are damaged?
It is important to check for electrical hazards. It is important to unplug all electronics, disconnect backup batteries, and remove all trip or fuse breakers.
What are the next steps?
Remove all electronics from the environment if possible. To prevent further water damage, electronics can be covered with plastic if removal is impossible.
What about the water coming from the leakage?
SERVPRO® professionals can remove standing water. Wipe away any excess water after you have completed the water removal. You should not turn the equipment on again until it is thoroughly examined. If you do, further damage may occur.
What other equipment could we use?
SERVPRO® professionals can use dehumidification equipment in order to stabilize the electronics. The dew point of the room should not cool electronics as this can lead to condensation and corrosion.
What if additional specialized expertise is needed?
A qualified electronics restoration specialist may be needed to complete the work and confirm the integrity.
