Lice Lifters

Archive for January 2015

People FREAK when they find out that someone in the house has lice. I often wonder if it is the lice or the anxiety of cleaning the house. Well stop right there, the clean-up is minimal. Don’t start throwing everything in the washer! Heat is the key component here. Put any items worn or had head contact with the “licey” head in the dryer for 30 minutes on high. Lice like to stay on the head so they aren’t burrowing in pillows or couches. Vacuum the common area as well as the sofa or if leather wipe it down. Lice are not on your curtains, counters or rooms you don’t use. The most common way to get lice is head to head contact. The likelihood of contacting lice from the couch is so small. If you do see these critters on your head please call Lice Lifters of Cranford for the unique heated treatment. We kill lice in One Quick Treatment Done! Lice Lifters uses all natural products.

That’s right snow and lice! Well last night’s storm was a bust so maybe we just need to worry about lice. People think lice are a summer problem, but at Lice Lifters of Cranford we see lice all year.

Head lice are tiny parasites that don’t fly or jump, but crawl. They spread by crawling from one head to the next. Adult lice are about the size of a sesame seed, and vary in color. Sometimes they are hard to see because they crawl quickly and can be different colors from graying white to tan to dark brown.

If you have been exposed or think you may have lice come into Lice Lifters for a head check.

The winter months are one of the peak times for head lice transmission.

Ah, the Joys of winter for those of living in the Northeast: The holidays are over and what do we have to look forward to? Snow and Lice! The winter months are also one of the peak times for head lice transmission. The pesky critters have not slowed down even with a drop in temperatures. The most common way to get head lice is head to head contact. They can also hide in the many layers of clothing, hats, gloves, scarves we use to ward off the chill, and crawl from item to another as coats pile on the floor or are hung together.

What can we do about it? For starters, throw outdoor clothing in the dryer for 30 minutes at a high temperature. Emphasize to your children not to share coats and hats with their friends. Wash combs and brushes in soapy water and let them soak in hot water. When in doubt come in for a head check!
