Why It's Important to Care for Your Hearing Aids

Hearing aids are an investment, and you want to be sure you're taking care of your investment properly. When cared for, hearing aids will last you for many years. Always clean your hearing aids whenever you take them out of your ears. Hearing aids can accumulate a lot of earwax or other debris from being inside your ear so often. In fact, earwax is the one of the main reasons hearing aids malfunction. Cleaning your hearing aids regularly and removing any earwax from them will help them to keep functioning their best.

It's also important to keep your hearing aids dry and safe. Never wear your hearing aids in the water, always be sure to remove them before you shower or go swimming. Always keep your hearing aids in a safe place as well, away from small children or any pets. Even though hearing aids are durable, they are still incredibly small and can be damaged due to mishandling.
