Question: Are there ways to deep clean my hearing aids? I feel like they are never clean enough.
Answer: Typically wiping the hearing aids at night with a soft dry cloth or tissue is sufficient for most cleaning, and tools are available to brush away debris from the hearing aids. Wax guards are monthly tools that ensure adequate sound transmission. In addition to routine techniques regularly performed in the office, there are antibacterial wipes and nightly disinfecting drying systems that discourage bacterial growth. The wipes can be used directly before inserting the hearing aids or after removing them, and overnight storage in the UV lights is a safe, preventable measure to treat the hearing aids.
