Tips for Restoring Water-Damaged Electronics

If a pipe suddenly burst inside of your Rayford, TX, commercial building recently, you may have experienced some water damage that unfortunately resulted in flooded electronics. What can you do to salvage them? Follow these three important tips to start your safe cleaning and restoration plan.

1. Contact Manufacturers

If you are unsure as to what you can do to clean or repair damage to a specific appliance, it is always best to contact the product’s manufacturing company. Many items require specialized reconditioning or replacement that someone from that company needs to handle. Safety should always be your main priority, so it is best to not go it alone where any renovations are concerned.

2. Clean and Restore What You Can - With Help

There may be some less dangerous items at your place of business that you can attempt to clean or repair with help from restoration specialists, especially if the manufacturer said it was safe to do so. You can also do online research to find advice on handling electronic damage after water contact, but be sure that the sources are trustworthy before taking their advice to heart. Finding and comparing a few quality resources is always a good idea.

3. Always Stay Safe

Remember to never use any devices that have come into contact with water. Avoid touching or operating all flooded electronics until a manufacturer, water damage technician or other trusted professional has told you that the coast is clear for you to be near them. As important as your expensive business equipment is to you and your staff, everyone’s well-being comes first.

If you use the information above, you will be well on your way to creating a plan to save as many of your business’s flooded electronics as possible. You will also be able to keep yourself and your workers out of harm’s way.
