Summer Hearing Aid Care

by | Jul 28, 2021 | Medical

Summer means warmer weather, lazy days on the beach, and an increase in hearing aid troubles!
Moisture is the culprit for many hearing aid problems — excessive moisture due to high humidity and sweat can cause distortion, static and a host of other problems. To help avoid the time and expense of a manufacturer repair, follow these tips:
• Leave your hearing device’s battery door open at night to allow air to circulate and dry it out.
• Purchase a hearing aid dehumidifier, a Dri-Aid Kit, or a Dry and Store Box — they are inexpensive, simple to use, and provide a handy storage spot.
• If you perspire heavily, take a moment to remove your hearing aids and wipe off excess moisture with a tissue.
• If you wear behind-the-ear hearing aids, consider a moisture guard.
• Avoid leaving your hearing aids in direct sunlight, glove compartments or environments where excessive heat can build up.
• If your hearing aid isn’t working and you suspect a moisture problem, do not attempt to dry it in the microwave or with a hair dryer; moisture will often evaporate on its own if the device is left open to dry.
For a limited time, get 50% off Dri-Aid kits with UV disinfectant light included. ($125 value!)
