The first thing you should do if you got in a “fluid accident” is to get your phone quickly out of the water or fluid and wipe it well. You should turn off the phone at once also. The fastest you do those steps; the more chances you get your phone recovered from the water damage.  

One of the most popular methods of absorbing water from your device’s screen is:

  • Putting it into a bowl of uncooked rice. Rice is known for absorbing water and moisture. Also, a lot of user experience has supported this theory. Many showed that putting the phone in rice helped them to get good results with water damaged screens. This solution might be a little slow as you would need to put your wet phone in rice for about two days to get the best results.

  • Another quick solution is using the hair-dryer. However, most companies strongly advice to avoid using hair-dryers. But if the screen is the affected part, it shouldn’t be much of a problem. You can use the dryer at the lowest heat setting and for very short period. You should also keep it as far as possible from the phone to prevent any damage to other electronic parts of the phone.
  • You can also use silica gel which is known as a very efficient absorbent. Just put your phone along with about two silica gel packets in a sealed bag. That would almost absorb all water if you leave it for about 3 days. So, a lot of iPhone users recommend this way.

  Collin is the master. I had a broken iPad mini. Began by getting a quote from Collin. He answered me right away before this business hours even started. I dropped off the broken iPad mini screen and he was finished in about three hours. They called me up and had it ready. Collin was friendly and knows his stuff. I suggest anyone who broke their screen to check them out. "

  My 9 year old dropped his iPad mini shattering the screen and was devastated. I found this place through groupon and immediately purchased a voucher. The carle place store is amazing. Very clean and faster than i had expected. I went in and Nora greeted me. She is courteous and professional. I asked how long it would take and she surprised me by saying less than an hour. "
