The most important part of maintenance is the prevention of possible problems which involves daily cleaning and inspection. Hearing aid components should last at least 4-5 years provided they are kept clean and all the various parts in working order. Daily cleaning and inspection is essential in ensuing their extended durability.
Hearing aid cleaning can be done using a number of tools. Small brushes and/or wax remover tools are among the most popular.
If earmoulds are used, the earmould and tubing can be removed from the hearing aid and cleaned in warm water – an air puffer is then a useful tool to use to ensure all moisture is cleared before the tubing is re-attached to the hearing aid.
A dry-aid-kit is designed to remove moisture and dry earwax. Some of these dry aid boxes run on mains and even have built in mechanisms to help eliminate germs. Dry aid kits also provide a safe place in which to store the hearing aids overnight
