Many people use hearing aids to treat different levels of hearing loss and improve their overall quality of life–from properly hearing a conversation between friends to understanding what the announcer is saying at a football game.

Why Do Hearing Aids Require Cleaning?

Many people rely on hearing aids to partake in their daily activities successfully, and the advancement in technology only continues to make such things more manageable.

One of the most common reports we hear from our patients at The Hearing Center is decreased sound quality in their hearing devices after wearing them frequently.

Often, this is no cause for concern and is usually just a result of daily wear, which causes a build-up of wax, debris, and moisture. Understandably, this daily wear eventually plays havoc on our devices if we do not practice regular cleaning and maintenance.

Although many of our patients do clean their devices at home, we often find when they come to us for a checkup, both their hearing and devices will need to be analyzed to ensure that they are working in harmony.

Can The Hearing Center Help Me With This?

Absolutely! The Hearing Center offers a hearing aid clean & check service to ensure you continue to receive the most benefits from your devices.

  • During a clean & check appointment, we will start with a visual inspection of the device, looking for any abnormalities or damaged parts.
  • Next, we complete a comprehensive listening check utilizing our Ling-6 sounds to ensure all speech frequencies are amplified clearly.
  • If the highest standards are not met, we will replace the hearing aid wax filters, domes, microphone covers, external casing, and batteries.
  • Finally, we clean and sanitize the hearing aid and use our supersonic earmold cleaner to ensure peak cleanliness.

Utilize our clean and check services for damaged devices or if you’d just like a tune-up!

How Much Does a Clean & Check Appointment Cost?

I would also like to point out that we offer this service to everyone, even non-patients. We can service any hearing aid, regardless of brand or model, and the cost for non-patients is only $30 out of pocket. 

Since this service requires you to be present at the appointment, we want to remind all visitors that we continue to follow CDC government guidelines to ensure our patient’s and our staff’s health and safety.

    I enjoy my life much more with my hearing back intact


    The first time I noticed signs of a hearing loss was back when I was with the Memphis Police Force on the first anti-sniper unit (SWAT) team. Shooting many rounds of guns a week led to ringing in my ears, which it seemed was the start of my hearing loss.
    The Hearing Center is the very best in the business. They were the most helpful in the profession that I had seen.
    Since getting my hearing aids, I have no regrets. I enjoy my life much more with my hearing back intact.
    If you are considering using The Hearing Center, expect to be impressed by the best in the hearing aid business. It’s wonderful to hear well again and I can’t thank them enough.

    I was very impressed. The people were friendly and knowledgable.


    I first noticed my hearing loss when I was having to ask people to repeat themselves a lot. I decided to get my first hearing test and I was very impressed with the service from The Hearing Center. The people were friendly and knowledgeable.
    Now, I would not be able to cope without my hearing aids. I can now carry a conversation.
    I can highly recommend seeking help from The Hearing Center if you are struggling with a hearing loss.

    The Hearing Center truly cares about helping me.



    I have visited many different hearing care providers over the years but none compare to the level of care I have received from Dr. LaBorde and the staff at The Hearing Center.
    I can honestly say they have changed my life by helping me to regain hearing clarity. I highly recommend them.

    I can hear my kids playing, I feel less tired, and I have more energy!

    My hearing loss started when I was just 10 years old as a result of multiple ear infections. I was really struggling to hear, and as a result, I had to have a lot of ear construction to save my hearing. I was told that I would never be able to hear certain tones again.
    For many years, I was living in a world of isolation and I believed that there was no way that I would get all of my hearing back. I had an opinion that hearing aids were for older people.
    When I first approached The Hearing Center, everyone was very warm and welcoming, and it did not matter how many questions I had. They answered them and were very patient with me.
    They fitted me with hearing aids and the results have been life-changing. I can hear my children. They can no longer come up behind me and scare me! I feel less tired, I have more energy, and as a result, I am losing weight.
    Getting help with my hearing from The Hearing Center was the best thing I ever did!
