Good news for folks living in Denver, Colorado! There is now a professional, mobile, and private lice removal and treatment service to help families dealing with a lice infestation! Lice Removal Denver is your premier lice removal clinic!
Every year six to 12 million people contract head lice in the United States alone according to the Centers for Disease Control. Lice are a more common occurrence that people realize. Lice do not discriminate when it comes to finding hosts so gender, age, ethnicity, or cleanliness have nothing to do with who gets head lice and who doesn’t.
Children are the most susceptible to getting head lice because of how they interact with each other. Kids do not possess the same desire for personal space that adults do. It is common to see kids hug each other frequently, huddle together on a play ground, or press their heads together over a puzzle or project. Head-to-head contact is very common among school aged children, and because of this, lice are very common among kids as well.
Lice do not fly or jump, but they do crawl rapidly from head to head when heads are in close enough proximity. Lice are parasites that require a human host to survive. They feed on blood and cannot survive without a host for more than 24 hours. Head-to-head contact is the easiest and most common way for lice to spread; it’s actually pretty uncommon for lice to spread via coats and personal items, though it can happen.
If your child has been sent home for having head lice, try not to stress too much. Lice Removal Denver is here to help you with your lice removal and treatment needs. Over-the-counter and home remedies are not reliable at fully eradicating head lice. Lice are becoming more and more resistant to chemicals found in over-the-counter treatments, and these remedies can be harmful to you and your loved ones. The most important part of eradicating head lice comes in the combing stage of treatments, a skill that cannot be purchased over-the-counter.
All of our technicians are highly trained and experienced at helping families just like yours. Our technicians have the knowhow to remove lice from your life in a way that is comfortable and pleasant. We start the process by performing a “wet check” which is the gold standard for screening for head lice. Some people do not display the common symptoms of having head lice, but if one family member has lice, it’s likely that others do too. We recommend that every household member, including caregivers and babysitters or anyone that is a frequent visitor gets screened as well. Our technician will explain the process of the “wet check” to you as parents or caregivers so you can perform this for your family in the future. We recommend that school aged children are checked regularly for head lice. Early detection and treatments help to stop the spread of head lice much faster.
Our treatments are made from natural oils and enzymes. They are naturally derived and contain no pesticides. Unlike over-the-counter treatments that are full of harsh chemicals, our treatments are safe for anyone to use and they will not harm the skin.
We use fine toothed metal lice combs to remove lice eggs (nits), young lice (nymphs), and adult lice from the hair. Metal lice combs are preferred to plastic lice combs because they do a much better job at removing nits and lice from the hair. Plastic lice combs just don’t cut it. Metal combs are more durable and can hold up to the strain of removing head lice without having the teeth of the comb break. The technician will show you what is being removed so you know what to look for during follow up care or should you ever have to remove lice from your family’s hair again. Once treatments are finished, hair is washed and dried. This salon quality service leaves hair looking and feeling great. After the hair is dried, the technician will do a strand-by-strand check and manually remove any lingering lice or nits. In most cases, children can return to school the following day.
While the technician is in your home, he or she will provide you with tips on how to prevent a lice infestation from occurring again. He or she will also tell you what is required for home care after the treatments are completed. You will also be taught what is required for follow up care in the days after the initial treatment. It is common to find lingering debris in the hair after the initial treatment. Everything will be explained to you by the technician so you know what to look for and what to do.
Pricing is determined based upon how severe the lice infestation is. With our services there is no guess work in what has to be done to clean the home, how many treatments need to be purchased, or what education you need in order to effectively handle the lice problem. When over-the-counter treatments or home remedies are compared to our services, most families will spend much more trying to eradicate head lice on their own than if they were to call us from the beginning. The price difference between over-the-counter treatments and our services can range anywhere from $330 to $1490 (not counting the frustration that comes with trying to handle this type of outbreak). For rates, give us a call at (720) 838-3369.
