ONLINE HEARING AID REPAIR SERVICE
hearing aid blocked
The most common fault with a hearing aid is usually a blocked tube or wax guard. This is because our ears are naturally self cleaning and a biproduct of this is ear wax.
Ear wax is a combination of dead skin and secretions from a gland in the ear. When you wear a hearing aid the ear wax that would usually fall out on it’s own is continually pushed back down the canal.
This can often result in a troublesome ear blockage which can stop the hearing aids working by blocking up the components.
If one of our audiologist determines that it is blocked they will guide you through the process of cleaning/unblocking. They will also advise you to get your ears examined to see if there is a build up of wax as this may need to be cleared professionally.
Hearing Aid Component fault
In the long term this exposure, along with mechanical wear and tear, can mean that one or more components of your hearing aid may fail.
General Servicing and Maintenance
Servicing and maintenance can help to extend the life of your hearing aids. Proactive care is often better than reactive.
If you aren’t sure how to clean and maintain your hearing aids optimally our audiologists can guide you through the process step by step.
If you don’t have the essential equipment to do the clean, they can recommend the right tools and cleaning products that can assist in the maintenance process.
