Protecting Your Hearing Aids in the Summer Months

By: | Tags: , , , | Comments: 0 | August 7th, 2019

School is out, summer is in, and outdoor fun is underway! While summer can be a carefree time with friends and family, protecting your hearing aids against the elements is important to enjoying it to the fullest. Hearing aids can get clogged and damaged from excessive heat, sand, dirt, water, sunscreen, and even sweat. Regularly cleaning your hearing device with small microbial towelettes or using Ear Gear, soft spandex water-resistant device slipcovers, can prevent clogging, wick moisture, prolong the lifespan of your hearing aids, and even reduce the effect of wind noise while you’re wearing them. Simply storing hearing aids in a protective case in a cool and dry place while you’re not using them can prevent heat and humidity-related damage. If you’re planning on being outdoors this summer, be sure to stop by our office to check out our many Ear Gear color options, pick up a drying kit, and receive even more tips about protecting your hearing aids so you can join the fun without the worry. See you at the beach!
