Vacuuming Process ✨

Liquid damaged phones
Liquid damaged phones can be made irreparable by wrong methods.

If you have a wet/dry vacuum device, suck the water inside the phone. However, vacuum cleaners can short-circuit your phone. Please be careful or bring your phone to us.

If you do not have a vacuum, an air compressor set to a low PSI (Pounds Per Square Inch) will do. A high PSI will damage your phone. Besides, a can of compressed air can be used to extract water from your phone.

Blow the water out of cracks and seams in the phone's exterior.

Do not use a blow dryer or oven. Excessive heat will irreversibly damage your phone.
