Prescription Hearing Aid Cleaning and Repair

Hearing aids are complex devices that may require repairs and maintenance over time. If you notice any issues with your hearing aids, it is important to schedule an appointment with your hearing care professional for an assessment. Common problems include no sound, unhinged battery doors, and exposure to moisture, wax, debris, or physical damage. Your hearing care professional is trained and equipped to diagnose and repair hearing aid problems. Some repairs can be done in-office, while others may need to be sent to the manufacturer for repair. Your hearing care professional will work with you and the manufacturer to ensure that your hearing aids are repaired and returned to you as quickly as possible.

Common hearing aid issues

You may find that there is no sound when you turn your hearing aid on in the morning or that the battery door has come unhinged. These issues can occur even when the hearing aids are properly cared for. If you experience an issue that requires a repair, bring your hearing aids to your hearing care professional. They are equipped and trained to evaluate and diagnose broken hearing aids. Some minor hearing aid repairs can be done in the office setting in a short period of time; others may need to be sent to the manufacturer for repair. Your hearing care professional can help determine what kind of repair is necessary if you feel your hearing aid is not working properly and will act as a liaison between you and the manufacturer if the device needs to be sent away.

Hearing aid repairs

If you are a current patient and have hearing aids that were not fit in our office, we are happy to try to repair your hearing aids. We are able to service most major manufacturers of hearing aids and can advise you as to whether yours is a brand we service. Hearing aids come with a warranty when purchased new. If your warranty has expired, it is still possible to repair most hearing aids for a small fee depending on the extent of the repair and the age of the hearing aid. Depending on the hearing aid manufacturer, this repair may come with a new year-long warranty. In the event your hearing aid is severely damaged and unable to be repaired, our professionals will work with you to determine what devices would be best for your current needs. Your hearing care professional will provide you with details when you bring your hearing aid into the office.

Why Hearing Aids Require Cleaning

As with any technology though, users must be aware that they will change over time after continued use. This is even more true for prescription hearing aids because they are a wearable form of technology, so things like wax, debris, and moisture will most likely naturally build up over time. Along with this, it also possible for a patient’s overall hearing ability to change over time for many reasons like age, environment, or even stress levels. So, prescription hearing aids must be cleaned regularly to improve the overall quality and lifespan of the device(s). Having to clean your prescription hearing aids (especially for the first time) at Vanguard Hearing Center in Garden City, Michigan may be a bit daunting, which is completely understandable given that hearing aids are delicate and expensive devices. At Vanguard Hearing Center in Garden City, Michigan, we understand, which is why we offer a prescription hearing aid clean & check service as a solution.
