Enjoy Your Summer!

chris-blog-picNow that Summer is here, we want you to be able to make the most of it by enjoying your favorite activities.  As you know, excessive moisture from sweating or water can be harmful to your hearing aids.  So here are a few ideas to help keep them running strong through the Summer months and beyond.  If you use a Siemens rechargeable system, your devices will automatically dehumidify each night.  With all other hearing aids, you should use some type of hearing aid drying device.  We offer a few of these inexpensive options in our office.  However, even when using these devices, if you experience excessive sweating or moisture while wearing your hearing aids, remember to occasionally remove your batteries, wiping them with a dry cloth and cleaning your battery compartment with an alcohol swab.

Also, please remember to protect your hearing from excessive noise, including fireworks displays and concerts.  We offer inexpensive disposable noise plugs for your convenience.  Thanks and have a great Summer!
