CARING FOR YOUR HEARING AIDS

If you wear hearing aids, the ever-changing British weather means protecting them against hot temperatures and increased exposure to moisture. The constant changes in temperature result in a build up of moisture inside the hearing aid so here are some of our hearing aid maintenance tips.

BOOK YOUR AFTERCARE APPOINTMENT
Avoid storing your hearing aids in the glove box or on the dashboard of your car. Never leave your hearing aids in the car  as the temperature inside a car can fluctuate and be detrimental to your hearing aids. Make sure to store them in the shade. You may also want to look at hearing aids with nano-coating, which makes condensation and moisture go away.

If your outdoor activity includes swimming, or anything involving water, it is best to remove your hearing aids completely. Salt water, for example, can leave crystals on your device when they dry and can cause permanent damage. When you are near the pool area, it is recommended that you don’t get near diving boards or go poolside, where there is a possibility of getting splashed.


With the Great British weather being nothing but temperamental, it is important to make sure that your hearing aids are protected. This means having to protect them from a range of conditions such as hot temperatures and oils from sun creams as well as moisture from the rain. We offer drying kits should the worst happen which can help you significantly.
