Murfreesboro hearing care providers helps patient with hearing aid maintenance

Question: Can you give me some general instructions in using and caring for a hearing aid?


Daily routines help to maintain optimal hearing aid performance.

Be sure to:

  • Keep your hearing aids in a safe dry place at night. A dehumidifier or a case that will close are available in our office.
  • Turn off your hearing aids when not in use.
  • Change the wax filters monthly and clean the aids with the brush and cloth.
  • Maintain routine six-month appointments for cleaning and verifications.

You will want to avoid:

  • Wearing your hearing aids in the shower or swimming.
  • Using hair spray over the hearing aids.
  • Leaving batteries or hearing aids where children or pets can reach them easily.
