Most hearing aids will function properly for many years, but to ensure top performance hearing aids require consistent maintenance and care. To help patients understand the process of proper care, Hearing Health Care has released a short guide titled Tips for Taking Care of Your Hearing Aids.
Effective hearing aid care and maintenance begins with the establishment of efficient routines. Hearing Health Care suggests that its patients incorporate hearing aid care into their daily and nightly routines so that it becomes automatic.
To begin with, it’s important to clean the hearing aids daily to prevent the accumulation of dirt, wax, and other debris from becoming lodged within the different components of the hearing aid. Hearing aids should be cleaned with a soft, dry cloth, and liquids should be avoided to prevent damage to the sensitive electronics.
Hearing aid sanitizers are a great compliment to the cleaning routine, as they use ultraviolet light to kill dangerous pathogens while also providing a place to store the hearing aids while not in use.
Hearing Health Care provides several other useful tips in the guide, including tips on frequently checking the hearing aid batteries, storing the hearing aids in a safe place, maintaining ear hygiene, and how to properly insert hearing aids into the ear.
Despite consistent care and maintenance, hearing aids will periodically require professional cleaning and sometimes repair. That’s why it’s important to have hearing aids professionally cleaned and checked at least twice a year to ensure top performance.
