Summer Noise Traps
Did you know that there are many summertime activities that can cause permanent and lifelong hearing damage?
Outdoor concerts: The recommended decibel level of an outdoor concert is 85dB, but frequently is measured well above 100dB.
- Boating and motorcycles: It’s not the engine, it’s the wind. Wind noise levels in excess of 103dB are common when you’re out on the water or on the road.
- Lawn equipment: A nice lawn shouldn’t cost you your hearing. Most yard equipment noise measures between 80dB and 105dB.
- Parades: Did this one surprise you? Marching bands, sirens and revving engines can reach damage-inducing decibel levels before you realize it.
- MP3 players: A year-round issue, playing your music loudly can cause permanent damage.
The solution to many of these situations is simple and inexpensive: ear plugs.
Summer is the perfect time to come in, learn all about us and how to protect your hearing. We’ll even throw in a free pair of ear plugs!
