How To Clean My Hearing Aids?
Wearing hearing aids can be a life changing experience, but they need to be kept in good condition if you want to get the most out of them.
How Do I Clean My Hearing Aids?
One of the most common issues associated with the maintenance of your hearing aid will be wax. It is almost unavoidable for majority of hearing aid wearers but with a little extra care it does not need to be an issue.
It is important to assess your hearing aids every day after use, pay close attention to the section that goes into your ear whether it be a rubber dome or custom ear mould. This is the part that goes deepest into your ear canal and it will likely have some wax on it which will require cleaning. Take the brush and/or cleaning cloth provided and remove any excess wax that may be present. Pay close attention to the wax guard as this is the section where the sound comes out into the ear, if it blocks with wax then no sound will come out. If the wax guard is full or your hearing aid sounds weak then change the wax guard as shown at your fitting appointment. If you have forgotten the process feel free to call us or come in to one of our clinics and we will be happy to assist.
