Water spill but still working - send for evaluation?

Sorry to bore you all with this question, I know it's been asked a million times but there are few particulars to my case that I'd like your opinions on. I'll try to be brief...

Yesterday I spilt about 1/4 a cup of water on my Macbook Pro keyboard. I immediately turned it upside down but before I could force shutdown, it powered off. Knowing that this was an ominous sign, I then left it in our hot cupboard upside down to dry (there didn't seem like an awful lot of liquid) for 36 hours.

In the meantime, I contact my home insurance company, who have arranged for the laptop to be collected tomorrow for repair. The excess is £250.

Today, I powered it back on and everything appears to be in full working order (keyboard checked, charging, touchpad working etc). I've used it for about 3 hours, whilst running a Time Machine backup and no problems at all.

My options are:

1. Send it off to the insurance company for evaluation and potentially repair (PROs - full inspection for any corrosion and replacement of motherboard if necessary. CONs - potentially £250 excess and loss of laptop for potentially 3 weeks).

2. Hope that laptop hasn't been damaged permanently and just use it as per usual.

What would you do?

Even if your laptop is working right now, corrosion will most likely progress overtime until the laptop isn't functional. I'd recommend taking it to a professional repairperson with tools to repair water damage (i.e. an ultrasonic cleaner) and have them give it a once over. Since everything is working correctly right now, they probably won't need to replace any components and this will just be preventative maintainence—and it will most likely cost a lot less than £250.

Really good advice. Thanks very much. I've called the insurance company and they're willing to put things on hold so I'll get it checked out over the weekend. Many thanks.
