Service and repair are standard components of ownership, particularly in the first year of use. Keep your hearing aids clean to maximize their lifespan and avoid expensive repair bills down the road. The longer your hearing aids last and the less money you spend on repairs, the better. It is more labor-intensive to service smaller hearing aids than bigger ones.
How to Care for Hearing Aids Parts
Use your hearing aids correctly, and they will last longer and cost less. Maintaining your hearing aids in top functioning order might save you money.
You open and close the battery door on your hearing aids daily. When you’re not using your hearing aids, leaving the battery door open is a good idea. As a result, the corners of the battery door may get blocked with dirt and debris due to the oils on your skin. Use the brush given by your hearing aid professional to clean the battery door edges and surrounding regions.

The volume controls on your hearing aids are used more often than the battery door. That’s exactly what occurs when you have oil on your skin, which causes dirt and filth to build up around the volume control and below its wheel, resulting in the volume control failing. The region beneath the volume wheel should be cleaned carefully with a brush. Brushing in any direction of the volume wheel should cause it to move.

As a consequence, microphones have become increasingly popular. Hearing aids’ faceplates have them on them, as well. When your hearing aids are in your ears, you can see the tiny holes where the microphones are located. There might be a few glitches. Dust may be avoided by covering the microphone intake with a mic inlet screen. Little holes in the screens enable sound to get through, but trash may clog those holes up.
Brushes should not be inserted into any of the microphone ports. When using hearing aids, avoid spraying hairspray directly into your ears. You may use your final styling product after your hair has completely dried from the hairspray’s remaining moisture.
Your hearing aids are equipped with sound tubes that enable you to hear—ear wax and dry skin jam the sound tubes more than any other portion of the hearing aid. Earwax is produced by the cerumen gland, located on the outside of the ears, where it is easier to reach and less likely to become impenetrable.
Wax protective coverings are available for several hearing aids. There are some that a patient may tweak on their own, of course. If your battery is OK, but you’re still getting little to no volume, it’s time to change the wax guard. Your hearing aid’s wired cleaning tool may be used to remove any wax that has accumulated in the output nozzle.

Your hearing aids’ exterior shell is composed of hypoallergenic material, lowering the likelihood of allergic reactions. Stop using your hearing aids if they cause your ears to become red and dry after use or if they cause your ears to become red and moist where the hearing aid has come into contact with your ear. To keep your hearing aids clean, you may either wash them with a cleaning solution or wipe them down with a tissue and dry them.
