Over time, sounds that are louder than 85 decibels can lead to noise-induced hearing loss. When you tie on your apron or use the lawn mower, add a pair of earplugs or earmuffs with a good noise reduction rating. Find out noise ratings of household appliances and equipment at http://bit.ly/3craV04

Hearing Protection is Important

Exposure to loud activities and being surrounded by extremely loud noise increases your risk of inner hair cell damage and potential hearing loss or ringing in your ears. Protecting your ears from loud noises is very important and we at East Coast Audiology recommend safeguarding your ears with hearing protection.

Hearing Protection Options

By limiting your exposure to loud noises, avoiding noisy environments or wearing hearing protection can minimize hearing loss conditions. Custom ear protection is available at our office.  This is a custom impression of the ear and provides the best protection. 

Hearing Protection Tips

You don’t have to miss out on the exciting sounds, either. Just take these safety tips into consideration:

  • Use ear protection, like earplugs or noise-cancelling headphones. 

  • Take “noise” breaks by stepping away to a quieter area regularly to give your ears a rest. If you find yourself experiencing an earache or headache, you definitely need a break.

  • Limit your exposure to loud noises; taking a minute to protect your hearing is worth it.
