What Do I Do If My Appliances Get Wet?

by | Dec 19, 2018 | News

The Philippines is often in the way of major typhoons and storms. Some of us live in areas that are at greater risk of flooding. In some cases, even the most mundane rain can end up soaking our appliances. So, what do you do if your appliances get wet?

Water damage is a real threat to appliances. Here are some things you can do to protect your appliances and yourself.

Unplug your appliances before a storm hits

If a storm is on the way and especially if there’s a threat of plugging, you’re better off unplugging your appliances. Place them on an elevated area if possible and secure the plugs and sockets. This way, you avoid the risk of walking into a room filled with electrically charged water. It protects your appliances from power surges as well.

If it’s standing in water, don’t touch it!

Weather can be unpredictable. If you find that your appliances are standing in water after a storm, don’t touch them. Don’t get into the water either. The electricity can charge the water and you can get electrocuted.

Don’t use your appliances if they got wet.

It’s tempting, especially if you need it, but don’t do it. Water can damage the inner workings of your appliances and using it while it’s wet could make it worse. Call an expert to assess the damage and make the necessary repairs.

To decide whether you can repair or you need to replace relies on the following factors:

  • How long has your appliance been wet or standing in water? The longer it’s been, the harder it may be to fix.
  • Warranty can become void if you get repairs from unauthorized providers or use replacement parts.
  • Floodwater can corrode certain parts of the appliances. It may be fine to use now, but you can run into problems over time.
  • How long have you had that appliance? It’s probably best to replace appliances that have served you for years rather than let repair costs rack up over time.
