Potomac Audiology News

If you use a hearing aid, you know going without one is not ideal! The good news is that you don’t have to. When your best troubleshooting efforts have failed, help is right around the corner with same-day hearing aid repair in Frederick. 

What Are the Most Common Reasons for Repairs?

Keep in mind regular maintenance and professional cleaning can help prevent some of these issues. But, if you have done all you can do to resolve the following and nothing has worked, it is time to see a professional.

  • Moisture damage: Exposure to sweat, humidity, or accidental immersion in water can damage the internal components.
  • Wax and debris buildup: Earwax and debris can clog the microphone or sound outlet, affecting performance.
  • Battery issues: Problems with the battery, such as corrosion or depletion, can impact power supply. This issue can usually be corrected at an appointment for same-day hearing aid repair in Frederick. 
  • Physical damage: Accidental drops or impacts can cause structural damage to hearing aids.
  • Feedback or whistling: Feedback issues may occur due to poor fit or malfunctioning components.
  • Volume or sound quality problems: Issues with volume control or sound clarity can arise from electronic components malfunctioning.
  • Software errors: Changes in settings or programming errors may require adjustments or reprogramming.

When Should You Replace Instead of Repair Your Hearing Aid?

Over time, hearing aids can experience reduced performance due to wear and tear, outdated technology, or changes in hearing needs. Consider a replacement if you cannot fix diminished sound quality, broken components, declining battery life, or if your hearing has worsened. 

Upgrading to newer models with advanced features and improved comfort may also prompt the need for replacement. Regular consultations with an audiologist help assess when a replacement is necessary.
