Hearing Aid Maintenance

Do You Spring Clean Your Hearing Aids?

If you have hearing loss, then your hearing aids play a crucial role in your ability to effectively communicate with others. You rely on your hearing aids to hear sounds and to interact with the people in your life.

Hearing aids can provide you with better hearing for many years. That’s why it’s important to take good care of your hearing aids. With the quick approach of spring, you may be planning to deep clean your home or spaces you spend the most time in. You should add your hearing aids to your list for deep cleaning!

Why Your Hearing Aids Should Be Spring Cleaned

You wear your hearing aids every day. For this reason, earwax, dirt, dust, and other debris can build-up inside the tiny components of your hearing aids. Over time this can affect how well your hearing aids provide you with better hearing.

In order to get the most out of your hearing aids, you should bring your devices in every six months for a professional cleaning. We can remove any wax or dirt build-up and even replace certain parts of your hearing aids if needed.

How to Keep Your Hearing Aids Clean

In addition to bringing your hearing aids in to be cleaned and checked every six months, you should also be cleaning your devices regularly. Whenever you take your hearing aids out of your ear you should wipe them down with a dry cloth. This will remove any excess wax or dead skills cells.

Be sure to always store your hearing aids in a safe, dry location when you are not wearing them. Although you may be inclined to keep them in the bathroom, this is not a good place to store your hearing aids because of humidity. A dresser or nightstand in your bedroom that is out of reach from any small children or pets is best.
