After Water damage – What to do.

After a storm, people are always eager to evaluate the damage.  No matter how tempted you may be, DO NOT turn on any equipment that has been wet or even damp.  Turning on electronics with water still present may be the kiss of death.

Computers that will not start may still contain important data – save them!

Data recovery may be possible for even the most water-damaged hard drives — call us.

Small electronics can be dried by putting them in a bag of rice for a few days.  This can work well for cell phones accidentally washed or dropped in the ICW.

Take pictures to document your losses.

Use professionals for repair services.  They have more tools and knowledge for these high level issues.  Also, a professional service company can put an independent value on your loss for the insurance company.
