Regular cleaning and maintenance of your hearing aids will ensure they continue functioning at a high level and helping you to hear what matters the most to you for many years to come.

Here are some tips for keeping your hearing aids in peak working condition.

Take advantage of your Belcare benefits

As a Beltone customer, your hearing aids come backed by Belcare, our program of ongoing care and protection. From your first hearing screening, through all the years you own Beltone hearing aids, your Belcare benefits assure you attention at any one of over 1,500 participating Beltone Hearing Care Centers, nationwide— in addition to other amazing benefits. Whether you need a cleaning, a quick readjustment or an unexpected repair, your Beltone hearing care professional is ready to assist you.

Check out Beltone’s how-to videos for your hearing aid cleaning

Beltone’s YouTube channel features detailed how-to videos for cleaning various hearing aid models, as well as videos about swapping batteries or changing out the domes.

Clean your hearing aids regularly

Even if you gently remove earwax that may appear on your hearing aids every day, you should set aside time for a deeper cleaning at least once per week. Neglecting to do so could lead to decreased performance in the long run.

Investing in a good cleaning kit makes the job a lot easier. Beltone offers specialized Cleaning & Care supplies for keeping your hearing aids looking and working their best.

  • Treat the components of your hearing aids delicately
  • Use only approved cleaning solutions on your hearing aids
