Hearing aid wearer, happy


Regular cleaning and maintenance is essential.

It is important that you look after your hearing aids and clean them regularly. This will prolong their life and make sure they are in good working order when you come to use them.  If they are not maintained this can lead to poor performance and even breakdown.

Advice before cleaning

As a general rule, clean your hearing aids and ear pieces each day with a soft, dry cloth or clean tissue. Make sure your hands are clean and dry before handling your aids. Do not use water, cleaning fluids, solvents or alcohol, as these could damage your hearing aids.

Before handling a hearing aid, make sure that you will be holding it over a soft surface to avoid damage if you drop it.
