Water is one of the most common causes of damage to phones, laptops, and other devices. Many phone repairs in Washington DC are due to water damage, and learning about this can help you protect your devices better.
Water and electronic device are enemies. Even devices that come with “water-resistant” labels are not entirely safe. Have you noticed that different devices come with different IP waterproof ratings?
