How does one care for a hearing aid?
Hearing aids should be kept dry and protected from excessive
temperatures. The leading causes of hearing aid repairs are
earwax, which gets caught in the hearing aid, and moisture
from humidity or perspiration. Many problems can be avoided
if simple care and maintenance instructions are followed.
When caring for your aid, it is recommended that you handle
it over a soft surface to minimize the risk of damage by dropping
it. Wipe your earmold or hearing aid with a dry tissue or
cloth after each wearing. Do NOT use alcohol, water, or other
solutions to clean the aid. Check the sound opening of the
aid daily to make sure it is clear of wax.
