Hearing aids are comprised of tiny electrical components that may experience wear and tear over time. If this is the case, you’ll likely need to visit your hearing professional to have the problem assessed. Whether it’s simply due to aging or the units have been exposed to moisture, excessive wax, debris or physical damage, we welcome in to visit our Audiology Assistant who can evaluate the extent of damage and issue any repair needed while you wait!
Have you ever turned your hearing aid on in the morning and found that there is no sound? Has the battery door come unhinged?
These things do happen, even when the hearing aids are properly cared for. If you should experience an issue that requires a repair, we proudly offer a full service lab where we are equipped and trained to evaluate and diagnose defective hearing aids. Our Audiology Assistnat will determine what kind of a repair is necessary and if a formal repair with the manufacturer is recommended. Think of our Audiology Assistant as a specialist who works as a liaison between you and the manufacturer should it require being sent away, to ensure your devices are up-to-spec and inform you when you’ll be getting your devices back.
Don’t be discouraged if you have hearing aids that were not fit in our office – we are happy to provide the same cleaning, maintenance and repair services with your hearing aids!
A word of Advice…
One easy way to keep your hearing aids in good working order is by properly caring for and maintaining the devices at home. Clean them daily with a dry cloth, remove batteries at night and place them in a dry aid to allow any moisture to evaporate, change your wax filters and examine them periodically for any scratches, cracks or damages.
