Three Common Types of Hearing Aid Repairs

03/18/2024 | Hearing Aids

Hearing aids are a significant investment in your overall health, and it’s important to keep them in tip-top shape with proper cleaning, adjustments, and repairs.

If you rely on hearing aids to help you navigate the world around you and communicate with loved ones, you know how frustrating it can be when something goes wrong with your devices. Hearing aids are a significant investment in your overall health, and it’s important to keep them in tip-top shape with proper cleaning, adjustments, and repairs. 

Sometimes, hearing aid repairs require the help of a specialist. In the event that your devices stop working as they should, our team at Cornerstone Audiology has you covered. Since we have strong relationships with major hearing aid manufacturers, our team can find the best solution to fix your hearing aids, regardless of their make and model. Let’s explore the three most common hearing aid repairs and how you can protect your devices. 

Most Common Hearing Aid Repair Issues 

Through our years of experience repairing hearing aids, these are the three issues that we see most often: 

Wax Buildup

Wax buildup can cause the electronic components of your devices to malfunction. This is why proper daily cleaning is so important. 

Moisture Damage

Moisture and electronic components don’t mesh well. Always store your hearing aids in a dry place, since excessive moisture can cause corrosion. We can use advanced hearing aid drying technology to remove moisture from your devices and vaporize harmful liquid in just fifteen minutes. 

Physical Damage

Loose wires and broken or cracked components can occur with normal wear and tear or from dropping or stepping on your devices. Proper storage can prevent some of these accidents from happening. 

How to Protect Your Hearing Aids  

You can protect your hearing aids from most issues through proper care. Clean your devices daily to keep them free of earwax, dust, and debris. Avoid getting them wet and be sure to store them in their case in a dry place away from children and animals when you’re not wearing them. 

Bring your hearing aids in for regular professional cleanings and inspections so that our team can identify any issues before they cause serious problems. Regular maintenance will extend the life of your devices and protect your investment for years to come.
