Ensuring a Peaceful Sleep for Edmonton Residents with Sleep Earplugs
Do you have trouble sleeping at night because of noise? Noise stops hundreds of thousands of people across Canada from falling and remaining asleep every night, either due to a snoring companion, noisy neighbours, or road noise from passing vehicles.
The significance of good sleep cannot be overstated. However, far too many of us are vulnerable to sounds that keep us awake at night. Alberta Hearing Service provides custom-made sleep earplugs in Edmonton to help reduce the effects of ambient sounds and finally get the rest you deserve.
Custom Earplugs for Sleeping
Custom sleeping earplugs are specially engineered and designed to reduce the sharp, abrupt noises that keep you awake at night or prevent you from falling asleep at all.
The best custom earplugs are made to suit your ear perfectly. They're also re-usable. All you have to do is put them in your ears before going to bed to get a comfortable, restful night's sleep free of snoring and other noises that used to keep you awake.

What Are the Effects of Loud Noise on Our Hearing?The ear is a fascinating and complex organ with fragile parts sensitive to the effects of loud noise. Thousands of sensory cells in the inner ear translate sound into nerve impulses so that the brain can understand the signal. When these hair cells are exposed to excessive sound levels, they may be damaged or gradually destroyed, resulting in hearing loss.
What Is the Threshold for “Too Loud”?We live in a noisy environment and are exposed to sounds at work, home, school, sports, traffic, clubs, theatres, and concerts regularly. These can all be fun activities, but when they become too noisy, they can become dangerous. The E-A-R research sound level scale depicts the normal sound levels we may encounter and when they become hazardous to our ears. Long-term exposure to 85dB is usually enough to cause hearing loss, but the length of time/duration of exposure is also important.
What Should I Do to Safeguard My Hearing?If you wish to protect your hearing, there are a variety of options available: earplugs, both custom and non-custom (the popular yellow earplugs); earmuffs, musician plugs, HiFi earplugs, and so on. They come in a variety of bright colours, making them easy to spot and less likely to be misplaced. When you're at work, coworkers will see if you're wearing gear that protects your ears. When they want to connect with you, this shows them they need to get your attention first.
Taking Care of Your Customized Sleep Earplugs
After each use, clean and dry your earplugs. Never store earplugs in the storage case if they have some moisture on them or in them, as this can contribute to the growth of bacteria. Avoid leaving earplugs in direct sunlight for long periods of time, as this can cause them to age faster.
