Water damage corrosion happens over time. Depending on the water situations, water could be inside the motherboard's metal shields. Corrosion under the shields will results in serious issues as most of the main components are under these shields. You wouldn't be able to see it. After 6 months of leaving it, the water damage will probably be beyond repair.

You can always try and send to a repair shop that has an ultra sonic cleaner. Someone like iPad Rehab could restore the phone for data recovery.

If it is not booting up, it is a motherboard problem. I guarantee that there is corrosion under the metal shields.
