Cleaning and maintenance
Earwax is the leading cause of hearing aid malfunction. Debris can work it's way into the microphone ports, battery door, or receiver. Regular cleaning with a soft cloth and cleaning brush can help keep the hearing aids working properly. We also suggest using a hearing aid dehumidifier and UV disinfecting case.
Why do hearing aids need repairs?
When normal maintenance and cleaning schedules aren’t followed, hearing devices break down. Just like any other electric device, they are prone to breakage when misused. Negligence is not the only thing that can break a hearing aid. Extreme sun exposure, trying to force in the wrong battery and water damage are other things that can harm your hearing aid. When hearing aids begin to output low-quality sound, it is usually a sign that they need to be checked by one of our specialists.
