Lice Happens is a private, discreet, and professional lice removal service.  Our mobile lice removal clinic will come to your home to treat any family members suffering from an infestation.  Our treatments are safe, effective, and 100% confidential.

Lice spread quickly and easily.  However, lice do not fly or jump as is commonly thought.  They do crawl rapidly from head to head when in close enough proximity.  Though children are the most susceptible to experiencing a lice outbreak, adults are not immune.  Even though children are often given plenty of space to run, play, learn, and explore, they do not understand personal space in the same way that adults do.  It is common to see children with their heads pressed together in a class room or huddled together on the playground.  Children learn and explore the world differently than adults and lice spread easily among children for this reason alone.  Lice do not discriminate when finding new hosts.  It doesn’t matter how good (or bad) hygiene seems to be, nor does ethnicity play a part in who gets head lice.

Adults can become infected with head lice just as easily as children, though this is less common.  Adults usually value personal space more than kids do, so outbreaks are less prevalent for adults.  However, a simple snuggle or sleeping with your child can lead to you getting head lice too.

There is nobody to blame for a lice infestation.  It happens!  Our motto is “No shame, no blame!” and we mean it.  It is near impossible to pinpoint the source of a lice outbreak because head lice spread rapidly.  The best thing you can do as a parent or a caregiver is to remedy the problem quickly and efficiently to stop the spread of lice.

When one of our lice treatment specialists arrives to your home, he or she will be in a logo-free vehicle to ensure your privacy.  Our specialists are highly trained and skilled individuals who have a lot of experience helping families just like yours.  We treat all families with the dignity, compassion, and respect they deserve.  We take honor in being invited to your home.

One of the first steps to our treatment process is screening each member of your household for head lice.  Because lice do not discriminate, spread easily, and can affect anyone, we screen every member.  Some people do not display the common symptoms (like an itchy scalp) of having head lice.  Identifying each family member suffering is key to ending the life cycle of lice in your home.  We will also teach you this important and valuable skill for use in the future.  We recommend regular screenings for children.

Our treatment solutions are non-toxic, safe, and gentle for all ages.  They are made from pesticide free and environmentally friendly ingredients that have no side effects.  This is unlike anything you might find over-the-counter.  OTC remedies are becoming less and less effective as head lice adapt to their harsh chemical ingredients.  They are not safe to use on anybody and often require multiple treatments while still proving ineffective.  Our treatment methods are tried, true, and tested to be effective after just one use.

We use fine toothed metal lice combs to remove lice eggs (nits), young lice (nymphs), and adult lice from the hair.  Our salon quality services will leave hair feeling soft, shiny, and smooth.  It will be like you just left a salon, but you never even had to leave home!  We teach this skill to parents and caregivers as well.  Combing is an important part of follow up care in the days after the initial treatment.  Should your child ever be re-introduced to head lice from a different source in the future, this is a skill you will want to have so you can tackle the problem on your own.

Perhaps one of the most important things we do is empower families with knowledge.  During the treatment process, our specialist will educate your family all about head lice.  We’ll make you a lice expert too!  Though this might seem icky, it is important to know the facts vs. the myths that surround head lice should you ever find yourself in this type of situation again.  We cover topics like what head lice are, how they spread, who gets head lice, home care, prevention, treatment options, combing, screening, and many more topics.  We’ll also answer any questions you have and address any concerns you might bring up about head lice.

We will never try to up sell you with gimmicks or gadgets that promise shortcuts to the treatment process.  We won’t take over your home with home sanitizing processes that are not necessary.  We will not take advantage of you, your time, or your money.  We know that this is a stressful time for you.  We will handle your lice problem with just one visit to your home and we will provide you with the tools and knowledge you need for any future infestation, though we hope you never have to use them!
