Hearing Aid Repair
Even despite meticulous caution and care, hearing aids can break. Sometimes the wear and tear is the cause of hearing aid malfunction. Other times, hearing aids become damaged due to water, heat or a curious four-legged family member. Regardless of how well you take care of your hearing aids, they will eventually require some type of professional maintenance or repair.
After all, even the most technologically advanced hearing aids are made to last from five to seven years. Whatever the cause of the damage, it is important to know what to do next. When the inevitable happens, it’s important to know there’s a provider who can help.
On-site Hearing Aid Repairs
At Cosmetic Hearing Solutions, we provide hearing aid repair for all individuals.
The first step when you have a malfunctioning or broken hearing aid is to call us. We will work to diagnose the issue. Sometimes a malfunctioning hearing aid is simple to fix and requires nothing more than a new battery or good cleaning of the devices. Other times, the issue may be more involved, especially if the devices were exposed to excess moisture or heat.
Severity of Damage
The severity of the damage will depict how the long the repair will take. Some minor repairs can be fixed in the office in a relatively short time. More extensive damage will require sending the hearing aids to the manufacturer who will work to repair the devices. These types of repairs can take weeks to finish and will require that you wear a temporary or second pair of hearing aids in the interim period.
Trust the Cosmetic Professionals
As mentioned, you don’t have to be a patient of Cosmetic Hearing Solutions to come to us for repair. Many individuals who aren’t patients find the help they need with us. That’s because we carry most major hearing aid manufacturers and are trained to repair each of them. Call us for a phone consultation and learn to see if we can fix your hearing aids.
Because hearing aid repair can be costly, it is important to find your warranty for your hearing aids. Most warranties cover minor repairs, especially if the devices are relatively new. Likewise, if you have insurance coverage for your hearing aids, contact your provider to see if they will cover any of the costs of hearing aid repair.
