How to help minimize hearing aid repairs…
You can follow these simply steps below to minimize hearing aid repairs and extend the life of your hearing aids.
- Clean hearing aid daily
- Store in cool, dry areas
- Check for rust in battery compartment. If you see any – get some good ole electronics parts cleaner (you can pick a can up an automotive parts store for a couple of bucks), spray a cotton swab, shake the swab gently to remove excessive drips and then carefully dab inside the battery compartment. Better yet, take it to your hearing care professional – that is what you paid them to check and do.
- If you have behind-the-ear hearing aids – check tubing for holes, crimps and hardening.
- Use of a desiccant to help remove moisture that may be caused from humidity, etc. Many styles are available. Check with your hearing care provider to see which one best fits your lifestyle.
