Saturation Indicators and Why They Are Standard Practice
Water is the only common element that truly possesses an every day threat to your valuables. Water has microscopic molecules that are capable of short circuiting a computer board in seconds. Simply washing your hands could cause your ring or bracelets to tarnish or corrode in months. When it comes to moisture damage, it seems to be only a matter of time.
You're probably wondering why this phone is in rice? Rice absorbs water well. And like most people who go too long without their phone, they will go to great lengths in an attempt to get mobile again. Water is the true enemy of preservation when it comes to keeping things like circuit boards functioning and silver jewelry shining.
Detecting damage by water on the microscopic level is impossible to see with the human eye. There had to be a quick, affordable, and easy solution to detect exposure to moisture. In response, the rise of saturation indicators came along with the ushering in of the tech boom we continue to see today. They mostly come in some type of color changing tab that reacts to the level of humidity it is exposed to. Once exposed, the items normal color never returns. That is why if you've ever taken your phone or laptop in for service, it is the first they will check.
