Clean Your Hearing Aids Weekly

Taking proper care of your hearing aids is important to ensure that they perform when you need them to. Clean your hearing aids weekly and make sure to remove any wax that may have built up in the device. See one of our hearing professionals for guidelines on cleaning your device.

Avoid Moisture & Water

Moisture and water should be kept away from hearing devices. Make sure to avoid taking your aids in the shower or dropping them in water. You also need to be aware of moisture from warm climates or moisture-rich environments. There are many hearing aid dehumidifying options available today. Ask us for details.

Avoid Dropping Your Hearing Aids

The components in your hearing aids can be damaged if they fall, especially on a hard surface. Always make sure you handle your hearing aids carefully over hard surfaces so you don't break them by accidentally dropping them. Store your hearing aids properly when you're not using them. This involves opening the battery door, avoiding moisture and ensuring they are placed in a safe area
