Your hearing aid is an investment in your health, and you want to ensure you do all you can to keep it in good condition. It’s important to properly clean and store your hearing aid when it’s not in use. Never wear it in the shower, and avoid storing it in areas that experience extreme temperatures. Here are five steps you should complete daily to keep your hearing aid clean and working at its best. First, you should wipe off your hearing aid with a clean cloth or an alcohol-free hearing aid wipe. Then use a soft-bristled hearing aid brush to clear debris out of the microphone and speaker ports. If there is still wax lodged in the microphone or speaker ports, use a wax pick to get in the grooves and remove it. Also, if a wax filter covers the speaker ports, inspect it to determine whether or not it is clogged and needs to be replaced. Finally, store your hearing aid in a dehumidifier to ensure excess moisture doesn’t build up inside.

Have you noticed that you or a loved one has been struggling to hear lately? Loss of hearing is not something you should treat lightly or ignore. No matter your age, if you notice a change in your hearing, you need to take care of it immediately. Hearing loss has several negative side effects that go beyond annoyance and embarrassment you may feel when you can’t hear your friend at the restaurant, when a relative must yell to get your attention, or when a coworker must repeat instructions. Hearing loss also leads to more rapid cognitive decline, increased risk of depression, and increased risk of falling. Improve your memory, social life, balance, job performance, and more by getting fitted for a hearing aid today.
