Hearing Aid Maintenance
Proper maintenance will help reduce ongoing costs and you being without your hearing aids.
You will, on average, wear your hearing aids for 12 hours a day, every day for the next 5 years or so. This equates to 22,000 hours of use in a warm, humid ear canal, exposed to wax and skin particles. Maintain them daily!
- Wax and moisture ingress is the cause of most hearing aid breakdowns – change wax guards and (new) microphone guards regularly.
Wipe your hearing aids daily with sterile wipes.
