DON’T JUST TAKE OUR WORD FOR IT! READ WHAT OUR CLIENTS HAVE TO SAY ABOUT LICE HAPPENS!
 
 
Peter was amazing! I am visiting from Australia and was in a total panic. He arrived at my hotel room exactly on time and was so reassuring and lovely. What a pleasure, the experience was as easy and simple as it possibly could be
 
 
Having been dealing with this annoying problem for the last month I finally threw my hands up and decided to call in the professionals. They were at my house within an hour and completely put my mind at ease. They taught me everything I needed to do with my house and how to prevent us from getting it again in the future. If you have been battling head lice like I was do not worry- call Lice Happens! They are so knowledgeable, professional and my kids loved them. Amazing service
 
 
Peter was amazing! It was my first time as a parent dealing with lice and I was very panicked. I called the service and he picked up within a couple minutes, calmed me down and was at our apartment in Manhattan by 10am. He had a very deep understanding of lice (who knew!) and did a thorough job of making sure they had all been removed and explaining the follow up.
I could not recommend enough! Thank you!

About Lice Happens

Lice Happens is a premier mobile lice treatment service center that travels to homes of residents living in New York City.  Our professional service is discreet, quick, and effective after just one visit.  Local business owner, Peter Byram says “I know head lice can be very stressful. Our calming and relaxing approach provides a uniquely pleasant experience that will have you and your family back to normal again in no time!”

One of our main goals at Lice Happens is to educate families about head lice.  Knowledge is empowering and we feel that the more accurate knowledge that is known, the more confident parents will feel about handling a lice infestation.  Lice are common among young children.  It is important to know what symptoms to look for if you have young children.  Most often, children will be sent home from school by the school nurse.  However, if you can properly screen your child for head lice and know what the most common symptoms are, you’ll be ahead of the game.

Most commonly, head lice create an itchy scalp.  When a louse secretes saliva, some people will have an allergic reaction which causes itching.  However, this itching can take some time to manifest if it is the first time a person has had an infestation.  A red rash around the base of the neck and the ears is another sign of a lice infestation.  This is also an allergic reaction to louse saliva.

Perhaps the most telltale sign of a lice infestation is actually seeing eggs (nits) and lice in the hair.  Though, many times gobs of hairspray, dandruff, and dust can be mistaken for nits and lice.  Nits will be attached to the hair shaft and close to the scalp.  These nits cannot simply be brushed off.  Sesame seed-sized bugs will also likely be present.

Some people will not display the obvious symptoms of head lice when lice removal or treatment is needed.  When we arrive at your home, one of the first steps we take in our treatment process is screening each member of your family for head lice.  We will also teach you the proper way to screen for head lice and what to look for.  This important skill will help your family in the long run.  Once each member that is experiencing an outbreak is identified, our trained specialist will begin treatments.

Our lice treatment process is performed by our highly trained and experienced lice removal experts.  These specialists are used to treating young children for head lice removal and will employ soothing methods to calm your child during the entire removal process.  Our treatments are made with non-toxic, pesticide free, and environmentally friendly ingredients that are safe for the whole family.  Treatments are gentle and effective.  We combine these treatments with fine and meticulous combing to remove nits and lice from the hair.  We will teach you this important skill for follow up care, or future use, in the days after the initial treatment.

In addition to giving you the practical skills of screening and combing, we will also take the time to answer all of your questions and concerns regarding head lice.  While providing treatment to your family, we will cover topics such as how lice spread, lice symptoms, who gets head lice, how hygiene plays a role, proper home care, and many more.  There are a lot of myths out there about head lice and we work hard to dispel them.  For example, head lice cannot live for more than 24 hours without a host; therefore it isn’t necessary to completely sanitize your home after an infestation.  We’ll teach you what is actually necessary and factual when it comes to a lice outbreak.  We will also give you tips for preventing lice outbreaks from occurring in your family in the future.

Lice Happens will never take advantage of you or your frazzled state-of-mind.  We know how stressful a lice infestation can be, it never comes at a convenient time.  We won’t take over your home with home sanitizing methods, and we will never try to sell you gimmicky gadgets or shortcuts for lice removal.  Our approach is simple, effective, and honest.

We take great honor in being invited into your home and we’re proud to serve families with quality lice removal and lice treatment living in our community.  We serve all areas of New York City including Gramercy Park and Murray Hill, Greenwich Village and SoHo, Lower Manhattan, Lower East Side, Upper East Side, and Upper West Side.  If you do not see your area listed, please give us call today at (917) 768-8131
