Hearing Clearly All Summer Long: A Guide to Hearing Aid Maintenance

Now that we are in the summer months, it’s time to take extra care of your hearing aids to ensure they continue to provide you with clear hearing. Warmer weather, humidity, sunscreen, and water can all pose challenges to hearing aid maintenance. To help you navigate this summer with ease, here are some tips for taking care of your hearing aids.

  1. Protect from Moisture
  2. With the summer months often comes high temperatures, humidity, and sometimes rain. To protect your hearing aids, invest in a protective cover or sleeve specifically designed for your devices to keep them safe from moisture.

  3. Keep Your Hearing Aids Away from Water
  4. Hearing aids are not waterproof and should never be worn in the water. This includes in the shower, in the pool, at the lake, or in the ocean. Always take your hearing aids out when visiting the beach or any body of water to protect them from water damage and sand. A protective carrying case is handy for these scenarios.

  5. Don’t Let Your Batteries Overheat
  6. With hot temperatures it can be easy for your hearing aids to overheat if they are left in the car or in direct sunlight. When you are not wearing your hearing aids be sure to store them in a cool, dry place.

  7. Regular Cleaning and Maintenance
  8. Sweat, sand, earwax, and other debris can build-up in your hearing aids. Regularly clean your devices using a soft, dry cloth or a hearing aid cleaning brush. Ensure you follow the manufacturer’s guidelines for cleaning and maintenance to avoid damaging your devices. If you’re unsure how to clean your hearing aids properly, contact Labyrinth Audiology and one of our hearing specialists can help you.
