Keep Your Hearing Aids in Shape

Get Rid Of Pesky Earwax

Earwax accumulation is a normal part of life and a common problem owners of hearing aids in Bradenton have to face. It’s important not to ignore the build-up of excess earwax. If you simply wipe your hearing aid once a day with a soft dry cloth you can avoid any unnecessary buildup and keep your hearing aid as clean as possible. 

Avoid Your Pockets   

Quickly putting your hearing aid and batteries in your pocket may seem harmless but did you know other items in your pockets like coins or keys can cause some damage. Contact with other everyday items can lead to battery discharge or other problems. Next time you’re on the go stick with using your device’s case instead of your pockets to avoid this problem! 

Be Aware Of Temperature    

One might think you only need to avoid extreme heat when it comes to your hearing aid. Even though you should always remember to never leave your device in your car during warm weather, you also need to watch out for cooler temperatures. Surprisingly, cold temperatures and wind can also damage your device. Be sure to always wear a hat, scarf, or earmuffs during the winter season to keep your hearing aid protected. 

Keep Them Dry!

Avoiding water is a key part of keeping your hearing aid safe. Always remember to remove your device before showering, swimming, or any other activity where your hearing aid could possibly be damaged by water. Did you know sanitizing your hearing aid is also important? A hearing aid dryer or dehumidifier sanitizes your device and also helps reduce moisture. 

Your hearing device is such an important part of your daily life and should always be kept in the best of care. By following these simple steps, taking care of your device will never be stressful. Hearing aid care can and should be an easy part of your daily routine. If you’re in the market for a hearing aid, contact Coastal Hearing Care today at (941) 229-2122.
