Daily care is a must for prolonging the life of your hearing aid. Wipe daily with a soft, lint free cloth. Be sure to clean the receiver and vent openings with the proper cleaning tool.
Turn off when not in use. Be sure to leave the battery door open to allow any accumulated moisture to dry. It is best to keep hearing aids in a dry-store kit (Kit available through Clark Audiology). Never store hearing aid batteries in the refrigerator. Also keep the battery compartment dry.
Remove hearing instruments before using hair spray.
Do not expose your hearing instruments to excessive moisture, humidity, or steam.
DO NOT GET WET!!! Do not wear your hearing instruments while bathing, showering or swimming.
Keep away from heat sources such as stoves, heat registers, hair dryers or open flame.
Keep away from pets, dogs in particular are aroused by feedback sounds sometimes produced by hearing instruments when not being worn.
Keep fresh batteries in your hearing instruments and be aware that your hearing aid will stop functioning when the battery dies. This is of particular importance as you drive in traffic or are in other situations where you may rely on warning sounds for safety.
We highly encourage you to maintain regular contact with Clark Audiology for follow up care. A regularly scheduled check and cleaning of your instruments will enhance long lasting reliability of your hearing aids. Yearly testing of your hearing is also crucial to assure that the products you purchased are delivering the performance needed to match any changing hearing conditions.
