Water Damage Apple Mac Repairs Cardiff
We have all been there when our concentration momentarily lapses and the worst result happens, you spill your coffee on your Apple Mac. It is normally at the most inconvenient moment too, like when you’re working on your thesis or you’ve got one of the most career defining moments pending. Sometimes life just likes to kick you when you’re down. However, once the dust, or coffee settles, it might not be as bad as you think. Our expert, Apple Mac technicians at NiwTech have over 20 years-experience in dealing with all types of liquid damage in Cardiff.
For us liquid damage is liquid damage. It doesn’t matter whether or not you’ve spilled tea, coffee, water, juice or wine. The damage is pretty much the same. However, if you manage to spill salt water on your device the repair may be a little bit harder because electronics don’t like liquids and they really hate salty liquids. If for some reason you’ve managed to spill a gallon of contact lense solution on your Apple Mac then don’t delay in getting in touch. If you’ve spilled any other liquid on your device then you should probably also get in touch as quickly as possible. At NiwTech we have seen it all and we really have the best solution for your problem.
The very first thing you should do is stay calm! Then switch your device off as quickly as your possibly can, disconnect it from any charging devices and bring it to NiwTech. You may have heard that you should put your device in rice or something similar, but really to avoid the most damage your Apple Mac needs to be professionally opened and dried out completely in order to ensure stop the liquid damage in it’s tracks. We really can’t stress this enough! You need to prevent the potential for the liquid to corrode your internal hardware so leaving it for 2 days in rice or cat litter and hoping with all your might could actually be making your problem worse.
Without performing a free, no obligation diagnosis it would be hard for us to answer this question, but it is unlikely. Not impossible but certainly unlikely! At NiwTech our Apple trained experts have carried out many, many repairs for liquid damage over our 20 years in Apple Mac repair. The most likely components that get damaged after a liquid spill are the logicboard, keyboard and touchpad. For most Apple Mac users their data is normally stored on a removable component called a hard drive, which can be an SSD or HDD.
In 2015 Apple started to solder SSD chips to the logicboard, which does make our job a little harder as we might have to also carry out some data recovery. Yes, it does make things more complicated but, again not impossible in every instance. In these MacBook models we use the “Lifeboat Port” to get your data back for you.
Just to put the icing on the already difficult cake, in 2018 Apple removed the “Lifeboat” port completely so for these models we might have to really dig deep and work extra hard to get your Apple Mac back to you as good as new.
We really won’t know until we carry out a free, complete diagnosis. Our diagnosis normally takes up to 24 working hours and once we get the go ahead from you, we can get your Apple Mac back to you in 24 working hours. Don’t stress and let NiwTech take care of it.
Liquid damage repairs start from £80 and it is likely that we won’t be able to give you a final cost until we carry out a free, no obligation diagnosis. We will only know how to solve the problem once we can see the extent of the damage in all the relevant components. Our free diagnosis can take as little as 4 hours and a maximum of 24 working hours. We don’t carry out any repairs until you agree to them and we will give you a final price. The price we give you will not change and there are absolutely no hidden charges- the price we quote you is the price you will pay. We can also have your device back to you in tip-top shape within 24 working hours so you don’t have to worry about being without you Apple Mac for weeks on end.
The first thing that we need to do is open your Apple Mac and dry everything completely and professionally. Once we have done this, we need to test every component to see which parts, if any, are damaged and to what extent they are damaged. We especially look for short circuits and corrosion. This sounds like a lot of work but at NiwTech we know what we are doing as we have over 20 years experience and we are Apple specialists. Once we know the full extent of the damage we can contact you and let you know exactly what needs to be done and the exact cost of the repair. Our quote is the final price and you are not obligated to accept it. We don’t hide any fees at all so the price we quote is final. Our diagnosis can take as little as 4 hours and a maximum of 24 working hours. We are confident in our work and what we do but for your peace of mind we provide you with a 12 month warranty on all hardware replacement parts.
All this is done within a maximum of 24 working hours. We aren’t happy until we get your MacBook back to you in perfect working order. All our replacement parts are OEM and we have a 12 month warranty on replacement hardware parts for your peace of mind.
