Many of our patients rely on their hearing aids to complete everyday tasks; they essentially become their hearing companions wherever they go.

With this in mind, it’s essential to recognize when your hearing aids require a little TLC.

Why Hearing Aids Need to be Cleaned Well and Often

The daily use of hearing aids subjects them to everyday wear and tear, including the build-up of wax, debris, and moisture. To keep them working at their full capacity, keeping them clean and well maintained is essential.

Because these devices are essential and used daily, it is easy to forget that a good deep clean is needed to maximize the hearing aid’s lifetime. The prospect of a deep clean can be intimidating for anyone; hearing aids are fragile and expensive.

How Can Physicians Hearing Care Help?

Our experts at PHC offer a hearing aid clean & check service to support both patients and non-patients with their devices’ maintenance.

During a clean & check appointment, we will change hearing aid domes, filters, sports locks, and mic covers. 

Listening checks and any adjustments are also apart of the service should you need it, and both ears will also be thoroughly cleaned. If you haven’t had a hearing examination done within the past two years, we will complete that as well.

What if I’m Not a Patient?

We offer this service to everyone, even non-patients! We can also service any hearing aid, regardless of brand or model. The cost for non-patients is $35-$65, depending on the type of services needed during the appointment.

It is imperative to schedule regular checkups with your physician to ensure that your hearing and device(s) are working as they should. Most checkups are quick and easy and will require a minimal amount of your time. 

Due to the nature of the appointment, it will need to be done in person, but rest assured that here at Physicians Hearing Care, we are taking every precaution to ensure our patient’s and staff’s safety and health.
