Don’t Toss Your Prescription Hearing Aids – Let Us Fix Them
It’s a bit frustrating when household electronics malfunction, but faulty hearing aids can be seriously inconvenient. It’s tempting to buy fresh devices instead of fixing the ones we already have, but don’t give up on them just yet.
Make sure these devices can’t be repaired before sending them to a landfill. There’s a high chance that your hearing aids need minor repairs; our experts can find out. Mother Nature and your wallet will both benefit.
Hearing aids are nothing like expensive headphones. They are advanced devices, tailored to a user’s specific hearing levels. Taking your devices to an expert is the best way to solve any technical problems. Repairing them correctly also means less maintenance in the future. Our technicians at South Shore Hearing Centers will keep your hearing devices functioning flawlessly so you can live life to the fullest.
Keep Your Hearing Aids in Proper Working Order
Your hearing aids are not only a significant financial investment, but they are also your ticket to a more rewarding and independent lifestyle as long as they perform as designed.
If you or a loved one is struggling with ill-performing or malfunctioning hearing aids, or if they just need some maintenance or TLC, don’t hesitate to contact our hearing aid repair specialists by using the adjacent form.
The Three Most Common Hearing Aid Problems
Malfunctioning hearing aids brought into South Shore Hearing Centers usually fall into one of three categories of problems:
1. Earwax Accumulation: There’s some regular cleaning that can be done at home, but internal components should be looked after by an expert technician. Earwax buildup accounts for 20%-30% of all hearing aid malfunctions, and most users will experience it at some point. Some manufacturers include extra filters and wax cleaning tools, but it can be tough to access the internal tubing.
2. Corrosion from Moisture: Introduce new sounds to your hearing aids, but never let them meet water. Moisture is bad news for almost every area of hearing aids, from the battery to the circuitry. Devices exposed to moisture might perform poorly or shut off entirely.
3. Physical Damage or Defects: Even if we’re careful, hearing aids endure some wear and tear from daily life. Through regular use, and occasional mishandling, wires and other internal components might need repair. These issues can limit performance and possibly make hearing aids ineffective.
Most of these issues are preventable if you develop a habit of cleaning and inspecting your hearing aids daily and by following the recommended maintenance schedule of your hearing aid and/or hearing care provider. Daily cleaning and inspection not only helps control earwax and moisture problems, but it also makes it easier to spot physical damage and defects early so you can bring them in for repair before they become a more costly issue.
