Hearing aids are precision instruments. Basically, we recommend maintenance at a retailer, but there is also some care you can do at home. Here we will introduce how to care for each type of hearing aid.
Hearing aid storage
Moisture is a great enemy for hearing aids. When not in use, “remove batteries” and store in a dry case. Storing air batteries together in a dry case will drain the batteries.
Care by model
Care methods vary by model. For details, see the instruction manual for the hearing aid.
Ear hole type
Use a special brush to remove the earwax that has accumulated in the area where the sound is emitted. Also, when peeling off the air battery seal, make sure that no glue remains.
Check earbuds and earplugs for dirt and earmuck. Remove any dirt from the hook of the hearing aid body (the part to be put on the ear) with cotton soaked with alcohol. In addition, wipe off water droplets accumulated in the tube (tube coming out of the main unit) and sweat in summer frequently.
Check earbuds and earplugs for dirt and earmuck. Use a brush to remove dirt and dust from the microphone of the main unit.
Ear molds and earplugs
First, remove the earmold and earplugs from the body. Next, soak it in lukewarm water containing a neutral detergent and clean it with a thin stick such as a toothpick.
In any case, if the dirt is severe, consult your dealer.
