This is why it is critical to obtain an expert ear wax removal service from a qualified professional.

What are some of the causes of ear wax build up?
Blocked ears are a common problem that affects many people. Earwax is a natural substance produced by the body to help protect the ear canal from foreign objects, such as dust and dirt. However, sometimes this ear wax can build up and become impacted, causing a blockage in the ear canal.
The symptoms of ears blocked with wax can include a feeling of fullness in the ear, difficulty hearing, ringing in the ear, and even vertigo or dizziness in severe cases. If left untreated, it can also lead to infections or damage to the ear canal or eardrum.
Some of the factors that can contribute to the build up of ear wax include excessive ear cleaning, use of hearing aids or earplugs, and certain medical conditions such as eczema or psoriasis.
How can ear wax be removed?
Procedures for eliminating ear wax include ear irrigation/syringing. Ear irrigation is the process of flushing out ear wax with a moderate flow of warm water.
What happens during an at home ear wax removal visit?
Depending on the patient's needs and preferences, Caroline, our qualified nurse who provides at home ear wax removal services in Bournemouth, Poole and the Dorset region, will generally use either ear irrigation or syringing. She will use a pressurised water irrigation system to remove the ear wax from the ear canal and the process is usually painless and takes just a few minutes.
Caroline will then use specialised tools and procedures to remove the wax safely and successfully during the ear wax removal procedure. She will usually insert a small speculum into the ear canal to help see the eardrum and then remove the wax with warm water or a small suction. The process is usually painless and just takes a few minutes.
At home ear wax removal services are helpful because they are convenient, private, and allow you to get treatment in a familiar and comfortable setting. Furthermore, home visit services can be especially beneficial for people who have mobility challenges or have difficulty leaving their homes.
