Hearing aid maintenance accessories
Your hearing aids require care and maintenance. Regular use of the following items can help ensure that your hearing experiences are second to none. In addition to the cleaning accessories below, it's recommended to visit your audiologist regularly for professional cleaning of your hearing aids.
- Dehumidifers: A dehumidifier is designed for the maintenance and storage of all types of hearing aids. The device is a maintenance chamber that dries and disinfects your devices. This process kills fungi and bacteria, and it greatly reduces itching and the chance of infections.
- Cleansing Wipes: Cleansing wipes contain a surface-active agent that is effective against earwax but doesn’t damage hearing aids, helping to facilitate the daily cleaning of your hearing aids.
- Cleaning Spray: Cleaning spray is specially designed to dissolve earwax quickly, which helps improve sound quality without damaging hearing aids. Cleaning sprays also help prevent skin irritation and eczema.
