Have you experienced any hearing loss? There are times when I think that my ears are not living up to their full potential. All to often I find myself asking my husband to turn up the TV or asking people to repeat themselves — especially if there is added background noise from a radio, kids or household machines.
May is National Speech and Hearing Awareness Month in Canada.
Did you know:
- that 1-in-4 Canadians report having some hearing loss?
- that everyday household noises can contribute to hearing loss?
- a recent study claims some of the biggest appliance offenders in the home are vacuum cleaners?
So how does YOUR vacuum cleaner stack up?
As you can see from the following graphic, most vacuum cleaners aren’t that far away from the same noise decibel as lawn mowers. Audiologists recommend wearing ear protectors when exposed to noise 80 decibels or higher.
You can also see from the graphic, that there are some vacuums whose decibels are near that of people talking or regular TV noise.
