A hearing aid check-up appointment is more than just testing the batteries. Through daily use, your hearing aids are exposed to heat, moisture, earwax, and other debris that can degrade the device’s functionality.
A professional hearing specialist will carefully test each component of your hearing aid and fix minor malfunctions. This includes inspection of the receiver, microphones, controls, battery door/compartment, and any other applicable components. Occasionally, your hearing aid may require a considerable repair or even a replacement, in which case your local hearing specialist can ship your hearing instrument to the manufacturer on your behalf.
Regular cleaning and maintenance can help prevent problems and prolong the life of your hearing instruments. Hearing aids are a big investment and your hearing health is well worth investing in. Keep your hearing devices in working order with the help of a hearing instrument professional, contact us for more information or to schedule an appointment today!
Worried about the cost? Don’t be!
If you are wondering whether you’ll be spending extra money for your checkup and cleaning, you’ll be glad to know that most appointments are free or require a nominal fee.
If your hearing aid is still under the manufacturer’s warranty, we can assist you with understanding the terms and repairs covered as well as shipping the device on your behalf.
