Because hearing aids are utilized daily by our customers, Hearing Professionals carries and services a variety of hearing aids. Through technological advances, today’s devices are designed and built to withstand moisture and prevent dirt and debris from getting inside. However, there may still be times when your hearing aid repairs are necessary.
The most common causes of hearing aid damage are:
- Build-up of earwax within the device
- Exposure to extreme temperatures
- Excessive moisture (usually from perspiration and humidity)
- Physical damage
Regular cleaning and proper care will prevent many instances of damage. But, we also recommend regular visits to your hearing healthcare provider for professional cleaning and maintenance. Our specialized tools enable us to remove the wax and debris from hard-to-reach places.
If you encounter a problem with your hearing aid or simply want it cleaned, you can bring it in to one of our offices during designated walk-in hours. Our professional staff can assist you, without an appointment, Monday through Thursday from 2-3 pm.
At Hearing Professionals, we truly understand how important proper hearing is to your quality of life. Therefore we will make every attempt to quickly repair your device on-site. If we need to send it to the manufacturer for repair, we will discuss your options with you. Fortunately, newer hearing aids come with a warranty that covers damage repair. Keep in mind, however, that repairing a damaged hearing aid doesn’t make it a new hearing aid.
For more information on hearing aid repairs and maintenance, please call us, send us an (email), or stop in to either one of our convenient locations in Sidney, Troy, or Celina during walk-in hours. We’ll be happy to let you know if we can service your brand of hearing aid.
