Help! My Hearing Aids Are Wet

03/18/2021 | Hearing Aid Repairs, Hearing Aids, Patient Resources

Let’s face it, we’ve all had our “oops” moments.

Whether you’ve accidentally worn it in the shower, spilled a drink on it, or left it with the kids, accidents happen and you’re definitely not alone in that matter.

Countless times, we receive calls from patients who are stressed about water damage to their device, worried that they can’t get their hearing aid back.

It’s true that water damage is the biggest culprit of hearing aid malfunctions, but it doesn’t mean that’s the end of your device!

Our Solution to This Dilemma

So, you’ve woken up one day and your device is no longer working. You read online, and it tells you to put it in rice or leave it in a warm place.

While that method works for cell phones, hearing aids are very complex pieces of technology, meaning their software is a lot different. This also means that often only a specialist can provide the solution to this problem.

Saving both your money and time, we are proud to offer our precision-engineered Redux machine, a professional moisture removal tool that can eliminate 100% of the moisture inside your hearing aid.

There’s no need for any action on your part. You can just sit back and let the Redux machine do all of the work!

How A Professional Hearing Aid Drier Works

Combining vacuum drying with humidity level measurement, the Redux machine acts by vaporizing liquid at a temperature safe for the device. This allows us to remove any moisture from your device in just 15 minutes.

Few clinics have access to such revolutionary technology – we are proud to be able to use it for our patients and help you in those moments of crisis, reducing any need for further hearing aid repairs.

Most of all – with longevity and performance such an important aspect – we are happy to allow you to continue to be amazed by your device and its remarkable capabilities.

Our Redux drying machine works for all models and brands of hearing devices and has a high level of success rate among patients. You’ll be amazed when you see it for yourself!

How to Prevent Water Accidents in Future

While I’m glad that we can provide the solution to water damage, prevention is the best course of action. Below are some things you can be doing to prevent any further accidents:

  • Avoid leaving your hearing aids in the bathroom.
  • Treat your hearing aids like gold and make sure you know where they are at all times.
  • Bring an umbrella with you when you leave the house/wear a hat to shield against weather changes.
  • If in doubt, contact a member of our team and we’ll be happy to guide you.

Whatever your concerns are, big or small, you can be rest assured by our highly talented team of specialists that will always put your needs at the top of our priorities.

If your hearing aids are water damaged, then the best thing you can do is to schedule an appointment with our hearing aid repair service. Take action now before it’s too late!
