Most screen repairs only take us 10-15 minutes. Because Ocean iPhone Repair is a home based operation, we do not let clients inside for security reasons but most repairs done in a very short period of time.
Other repairs on your iPhone or Android device can take 30 minutes to 2 hours max, but most repairs are done same day.

Water/Liquid Damage Repair
Liquid damage repairs vary from phone to phone. No two liquid damaged devices will be the same, ever. Liquid damage is a very complex situation for us and we cannot ever give an exact estimate over the phone. We need to take the entire phone apart and test each part one by one and apply our liquid cleaning solution to the phone main board to remove any corrosion and mineral deposits left from the liquid damage.
The biggest myth for any liquid damage is putting your phone in rice. Drying the outside of the phone with a paper towel and powering it off immediately is the only step you should take. Please know that the highest success rates for liquid damage are those devices that can get to us within the first few hours of the initial contact with liquid, still wet. Once liquid dry's without applying a liquid cleaning solution first will leave mineral deposits on the main board (if it was affected) causing corrosion. Corrosion is really what causes your phone to break after liquid damage has occurred.
Although we do work on liquid damage devices, most times it will be for data recovery only for those who have not been able to back-up their phones data. We have seen many phones still work after a liquid damage repair but sometimes phones can still give up anywhere from a few hours to a few days or weeks after a complete liquid damage repair has been done. Electronics and liquid do not go together, period.
By purchasing our liquid damage repair you automatically agree to our terms and conditions. Liquid damaged repairs are never guaranteed. Take it from us who are experts and extremely honest about these situations. It is common though for most repair shop to charge a small diagnostics fee due to the lengthy time it takes to test and clean each component.
Liquid damage repairs start at $50.00 but can go as much as $300.00 depending on the phone model and new parts needed. Please be aware that sometimes trying to repair a liquid damaged device can lead to more issues with the phone.
Example: You dropped your phone in water a few minutes ago and from that time to the time you bring it to us your screen was still working. After we take the phone apart, apply our cleaning solution, dry off the phone and test it again, we find out the screen stopped working and we can no longer repair the phone. Situations like this are very common and we will not be held responsible for your phone not working anymore after we try our repair. Situations like these are what we consider unforeseen damages or damages that get worse after contact. There is just no way for us to predict what may come of your liquid damaged device after we try to clean it.
