Ways to Shield Your Home from an Impending Lice Attack

Spot a pesky louse in your home? Don’t worry. You can give us a call and set up a complete home inspection and lice removal service with us. The problem is that most people don’t realize where the lice in their home are coming from and start panicking. It’s true that lice are contagious and can crawl from your hair to an object and vice versa. Around 6 to 12 million children are infested with lice each year in the United States. If you’re careful about these tips, you can prevent your home from a lice infestation easily.

1. Cut off the source

The truth is that your home is not the source of the lice attack—it’s someone’s head. This means that your home cleaning endeavor will be ineffective unless you deal with the affected person’s head first. You’ll have to be a bit patient with the comb you’re using to capture the lice, but if that’s too unpleasant of a task for you then just give us a call. You can book an appointment with us at our lice removal salon and get your or your family member’s head checked.

2. Quit sharing items

Maintain a distance from family members that have lice in their hair. Avoid sharing items that touch the head directly such as towels, caps, brushes, scarves, and hair ties. Remember that lice transfer themselves by crawling—not by flying or jumping onto another surface.

3. Put up your hair

Long, open hair is the most at-risk of lice attacks. Put the hair into a neat pony tail, plait or bun. The idea is to avoid flyaway hair strands that the louse can latch onto. Pro tip: use hair spray to keep the strands in place.
