To maximize life and to ensure top performance, hearing aids need to be maintained and cared for on a consistent basis. To help patients in this regard, House of Hearing Clinic has published a short guide titled Tips For Taking Care of Your Hearing Aids.
First, House of Hearing Clinic suggests that hearing aid care should be incorporated into daily and nightly routines so that it becomes a habit. Establishing a routine ensures that proper care is completed on a regular basis.
Second, 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. 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 and provide a place to store the hearing aids while not in use.
House of Hearing Audiology Clinic provides several other useful tips in the guide, including tips on storing the hearing aids in a safe place, maintaining ear hygiene, and the method for properly inserting hearing aids into the ear.
Even with 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.
