Earwax
Removal

Microsuction and irrigation.

It can be uncomfortable, painful, and hard to hear if your ear has become blocked. One of the major causes is a build-up of earwax, which risks leading to infection if not removed carefully.

Our earwax removal services start from £85, and are done from the comfort of your own home.

Microsuction and irrigation.

It can be uncomfortable, painful, and hard to hear if your ear has become blocked. One of the major causes is a build-up of earwax, which risks leading to infection if not removed carefully.

What causes impacted earwax?

Because ears are effective at cleaning themselves, earwax usually falls out of its own accord. While that is a natural process, it’s often sore when impacted.

A build-up of earwax can happen if:

  • wax has been pushed into your ear canal by cotton buds, hair clips or fingers
  • your ear canals are hairy, narrow, or damaged in some way
  • you wear earplugs, earbud headphones or hearing aids
  • water gets into the ear while swimming or showing and causes wax to expand
  • your ear canal is inflamed or infected (known as otitis externa or ‘Swimmer’s ear’)

How do you know if you have an earwax build up?

There are signs to look out for, particularly if you’ve had earwax problems previously.

Symptoms of earwax build-up include:

  • Hearing loss
  • Earache, or a feeling that your ears are blocked
  • Ringing or buzzing in your ears (tinnitus)
  • Vertigo (feeling dizzy and sick)
  • Cough (caused by hard wax pressing the vagus nerve)

These should disappear once we remove the earwax. If you’re unsure if you have wax in your ears, arrange an examination.

How we remove earwax?

We use the two most effective methods of earwax removal: microsuction and irrigation.

The former works like a miniature vacuum cleaner, adapted to suck out problematic earwax, and is a quick, non-invasive procedure recommended by NICE (the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence).

Water irrigation, or ‘syringing’ as it is commonly known, gently flushes blocked wax from your ear canal and is a fast, pain-free method.

We can also use manual extraction, using specially designed tools to tease soft wax from the ear canal.

What do our customers say?

First

After many years of gradual hearing loss, difficulty in restaurants, television volume turned up and my wife getting fed up with repeating herself, I had to face up to the fact that I needed help. I read the Which?® review of hearing aid providers which rated local independents more highly than the big chains in terms of quality of service and price. Within two weeks, Diamond Hearing Services had assessed my hearing in my own house and two weeks later fitted my new aids. I had one further appointment for a minor adjustment. The service has been very professional and efficient leaving me with restored hearing. I wholeheartedly recommend Diamond Hearing Services, my only regret is that I hadn’t contacted them a few years ago!

Should I get my ears professionally cleaned?

If wax is not causing problems, it’s best left alone. It’s possible to clean your ears safely at home, but we always recommend consulting a trained specialist or your GP before attempting to do so.

The safest way to get rid of impacted earwax is to ask an experienced audiologist that offers an earwax removal service.

Does earwax removal hurt?

No, our treatments are usually painless.

During your appointment, we will remove wax from each ear, check your overall ear and hearing health, and advise on ongoing ear care and hygiene.
