It is a well-known fact that gadgets of all types and forms, especially electronic gadgets, are not allowed to mingle with water. Water contamination in a gadget can only mean destruction and early death for the gizmo. No matter how technology pushed forward, the time for electronic devices to be all friendly with water and any other liquid stuff, is far from becoming a reality.
Of course, there are water-proof and water-resistant gadgets. However, there are only very small amount of gadgets that have this feature. And, most often than not, these gadgets are those that have half the lifespan of their regular counterparts.
As a gamer, I know this by heart, that is why I make sure that my gaming equipment are never near any water. However,one unfortunate day, everybody was so busy that nobody noticed the water leakage near the bottom of the wall that separates my bathroom and my playroom. And before anybody could stop it, a loud explosion was heard. My PC has gone haywire because the water has reached the outlet causing it to short circuit and explode. My family and I were eating dinner that time so nobody was able to see it happen (which is also a good thing since no one was near the incident so no one got hurt).
To make matters worse, the explosion only caused for the pipes to crack through the wall and more water was spilling out into the area. We had no choice but to evacuate the area and shut down the flow of electricity to prevent more damage to my other gaming gadgets and the house, in general.
I had to use my phone to frantically do an online search for a reputable water restoration company that allows emergency repairs. I came across, http://www.mywebpal.com/colorado/water-damage-colorado-springs. It was not the site of the restoration company but the site was informative enough to give suggestions about companies in Colorado that can address our water damage problems.
Thankfully, the website held true to its suggestion, because the company that came was able to fix the problems. It took a few days since the walls have really cracked and the piping was busted. But now, after all the work they did, it was as if nothing actually happen.
Right now, I am still waiting for my PC to be fixed. This story is just a reminder so that people would be more cautious about their gaming gizmos, or all gadgets, for that matter.
