Do I need to clean my hearing aids daily?

<span style="font-size: 16px; font-family: Arial; color: rgb(20, 20, 20); vertical-align: baseline; white-space: pre-wrap;">Hi all, <br class="kix-line-break">Recently I had diagnosed with partial hearing impairment and my audiologist in Calgary had prescribed me a digital hearing aid. Now, I’m using a digital custom earbud molds which are purchased from Westside audiology. As I don’t have any experience with this hearing aid, I don’t know how to maintain it. Do I need to seek the help from any external services for the maintenance of my hearing aid? Or Am I able to do it myself? Do I need to clean my hearing aids daily? What are the things to be considered while cleaning it? Please share your experiences.

RE: Do I need to clean my hearing aids daily?

Preferably, your audiologist should have guided you on how to clean your hearing aids. This way, it's more hands-on and you can see exactly how it's done. But here are some tips that I can give you when it comes to cleaning your hearing aids:

1. Listen to your hearing aids and check for any discrepancies or intermittencies.

2. Make sure that your batteries are charged fully. This way, you can specifically know if the discrepancies are due to the problems within the hearing aid or battery problems only.

3. Cleaning your hearing aids daily is simple, just wipe it off with a clean, soft cloth. The ear molds can be cleaned with soap and water but dry them well before reinserting them.

4. Repairs should only be done by experts and professionals.

5. Don't use alcohol or any other harsh cleaning agent because it can damage the hearing aid.

6. Have a special brush for dusting away dirt and grime from the hearing aid.

I hope this helps!

No, you don't have to clean it every day unless you're a germaphobe... however, you'd better keep it clean anyways. Personal hygiene is important.
