HEARING AIDS HEARING LOSS HEARING PROTECTION HISTORY TINNITUS

You just got your first hearing aids? Here are some useful tips for their maintenance!

Proper hearing aids maintenance will allow you to get the most out of them. Every component of the hearing aid has a special accessory designed for its maintenance.

Although there are different habits that can ensure effective maintenance of hearing aids, ODYO suggests this simple hearing aid maintenance procedure.

For behind the ear (BTE) hearing aids:

  • Hearing aid bodies can be cleaned with alcohol free wipes specially designed for hearing instruments.
  • The tube attached to the body must be carefully removed.
  • The tube and ear-mold are to be deposited into a cup filled with soapy water. Let them soak inside the liquid for five to ten minutes.
  • Remove the remaining debris with specialized hearing aid cleaners such as picks or brushes.
  • Use hearing aid vent cleaners to remove wax and debris form the vent.
  • Rinse the tube and ear-mold to remove all traces of soap.
  • Use a hearing aid air blower to remove all the remaining liquid.
  • Wipe ear-mold and tube with alcohol free wipes.
  • After ensuring that the tube and ear-mold are totally dry, attach them to the hearing aid body.

For all in the ear hearing aids (ITE, ITC and CIC):

  • Hearing aid bodies can be cleaned with alcohol free wipes specially designed for hearing instruments.
  • Never use water or any other liquid with these hearing aids.
  • Use hearing aid vent cleaners to remove wax and debris form the vent.
  • Change the earwax guard to make sure the sound passage is not blocked.

Humidity is known for reducing hearing aid performance and life span. To ensure that your hearing aids are humidity free, put them in a dehumidifier overnight.

Every hearing aid user must have the necessary hearing aid maintenance accessories that will help caring for the devices. You can find hearing aid maintenance products online at ODYO SHOP, our affiliated online store.
