An estimated 35 million Americans suffer from hearing loss, according to the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association. Around 95% of these children and adults will benefit from wearing hearing aids. Some individuals pass because they are ashamed to be seen wearing them, and others do so because of the cost. Although prices can differ considerably, there are several choices out there that are very affordable. Most importantly, in extending the life of your equipment and maintaining proper hygiene, proper care and knowing when you will need to have regular hearing aid repair is crucial.

The most common need to fix hearing aids arises from the device’s ear wax, or debris. The build-up of ear wax affects the output of transducers inside your system, or the microphone and speaker. You can prevent damage from ear wax with proper care and cleaning. Your expert will advise you on how to correctly clean yours. To easily remove the wax that may be blocking the tube or other parts of your equipment, most machines come with specialised tools, or wax loops. In addition, note to clean your ears with a warm washcloth on a regular basis. Consider ear wax to be the greatest enemy of your unit, as it can get into the smallest crevices and block the microphone.
To prevent this form of injury, some wearers even have their ears professionally cleaned.Exposure to water , high humidity levels, or prolonged exposure to extreme temperatures (for example, being left in your vehicle during summer or winter) are other causes of the need for hearing air repair. You should store them in a sealed container to prevent your appliances from getting wet. You should buy a special dryer or dehumidifier if you think they might have been exposed to some moisture. In addition to damage related to moisture, through the microphones or sound opening over time, dust and debris can enter. Eventually, this can lead to damage to the internal sections. Try to remember to clean them with a soft, dry cloth every night to clear any dirt or dust. It is important that you remember not to poke something into the microphone port directly, but instead to tip it upside down, so that any dislodged debris can spill out rather than into the microphone.
