The environment in the ear canal is 100% humidity and remains at a constant 37 degrees Celsius. Earwax is a combination of salt and corrosive body acid. These conditions are harmful to electronics, but this is the environment that hearing aids must perform. If your hearing aids have not been checked for 2 years, then they may not be functioning at their best, as the microphone, speaker and microchip gradually become contaminated. We can have your hearing aids serviced bringing them back to peak performance. Our chosen repair laboratory will replace the working parts as necessary and return the hearing aids to you with a full 6 month repair warranty.
Here are five tips from Widex to help you keep your hearing aid working.
Keep them clean: Whatever the type of hearing aid, water or other fluids should never be used to clean them. Clean the surfaces of the hearing aid with a soft, dry cloth, use the special brush and tool supplied with the hearing aid to brush away any wax or debris around the sound outlet, microphone opening and vent.
Keep them safe: Lean over a table when inserting and removing your hearing aid. Hearing aids can easily be damaged if they fall on the hard floor.
Keep them snug: Hearing aids should never be exposed to high temperatures or moisture. Don’t wear your hearing aids while showering, swimming, during radiation treatment, or when using a hair dryer. Use a drying kit regularly, there are electronic drying stations available to dry out your hearing aids that you can use at night.
Keep in touch: Your level of hearing loss may change over time, which means that your hearing aids will have to be adjusted to meet your new hearing needs. It’s important to keep in touch with your hearing professional and have regular hearing evaluations to get the most out of your hearing aids.
Keep your batteries fresh: Open your hearing aid battery door when you aren’t using it to assure that your device isn’t using power when it’s not in your ear. Unopened hearing aid batteries should be stored in a dry place at room temperature – like a drawer. It is not necessary to store them in a refrigerator!
