In order to combat new forms of super lice, it’s best to address lice with effective, professional treatments using the latest lice removal technology as soon as possible so you can get back to your life.

Lice can not only survive in your hair but on bedding, carpet, furniture and in your car. Since lice can’t jump or fly, it’s unlikely that they will be present on items that your child hasn’t been in contact with. However, they can crawl, so you want to make sure that you clean your home extra carefully. If you’ve washed and dried on high heat all clothing, stuffed animals, pillows and pillowcases and vacuumed the carpet and furniture, your items should be lice free.
