What’s next now?

Let’s discuss what all you should do to ensure your Mac has come off safe from a liquid spill. Here are a few important do’s to avoid any further harm to your Mac.

  • Turn it upside down quickly and simultaneously hold the power button to turn it  off  don’t wait for proper shutdown.
  • Unplug power adaptor immediately, remove battery if possible, remove all connected devices.
  • Take a clean and lint-free towel, cotton swabs or simply tissue paper, whatever available promptly and try to soak up as much of the liquid as possible (DO NOT USE HAIR DRYER)

Caution :- Do not switch your Mac ON

Often, Mac’s work fine for a few days after liquid spill but can suddenly stop working after some time. This is due to oxidisation and corrosion inside which can results in short circuiting.

Don’t try to switch it ON even it’s looking clean and dry because the usual outcome of  liquid damage is corrosion and components on the logic board (main part of your Mac) are highly susceptible to corrosion which will destroy chips and break connections after a period of time.

What to do before turning it ON…?
