Do my hearing aids need special care during the summer months?

Mechanical problems occur more often in warm weather, since hearing aid components are susceptible to damage from moisture and extreme temperatures. To ensure good operation year-round, always keep your hearing instruments clean and dry. Wipe the devices every night with a dry tissue and clean the openings with the tools provided.

We recommend a professional cleaning in our office every 6-12 months. Remove your hearing aids before using sunscreen, cologne, hair products, shaving cream, after-shave lotion or body powder. Also remove them before bathing or swimming and store them every night in a dehumidifier, such as a Dri-Aid jar or Dry and Store system.
