No matter what you do, accidents can still happen. That’s why the hearing experts at Hearing, Balance & Speech Center have compiled a few tips and tricks on what you should do if your hearing aid gets wet. Remember, if you hearing aid device still does not work properly after you try the following suggestions, your hearing care provider can help you determine whether repairs are needed or if you need a new hearing aid.
NOTE: Although, there is no guarantee that the following will fix your hearing aid, as long as the hearing aid was not in water for a long period of time, there is still a good chance that you get it functioning properly again.
If All Else Fails, Contact Your Hearing Care Provider
It is possible that hearing aid repairs can be performed or parts can be replaced at your local hearing care center. Also, it's important to remember, if necessary, that hearing aids come with a warranty for services and repairs by the manufacturer.
