Once you have your hearing aids, it is important to keep them in good working condition. The best way to do this is regular at home cleaning, paired with seeing your Gardner Audiologist every 3-6 months for a deep cleaning. Below are a few cleaning tips you can use at home:
- Wipe the hearing aids with a dry cloth or wipes made for hearing aids. Avoid using wipes with harsh chemicals in them that may harm the hearing aids.
- Use the brush provided to clean the portion that enters the ear, as well as the microphone cover. This video reviews how to clean your microphone cover: https://youtu.be/EKWPcxDYjs0
- Some hearing aids may have a small, white filter that can get plugged with wax or debris. If this happens, it will seem like hearing aid is very weak or not working. Replace the filter as shown by your Audiologist, or watch our video to walk you through the steps: https://youtu.be/gLO7xNu_UoM
