Unless completely cleaned out, it will probably cause long term corrosion. Need disassembly and wash with deionized water, rinse with alcohol, and dry with warm air. Problem is seepage under surface mount components is microscopic and almost impossible to clean completely. I would plan on replacing the affected parts or the entire laptop. The batteries have to be removed to prevent electrolysis.
