There are many reasons why LiceDoctors is the number one lice treatment service in the Houston area. Our all natural lice treatment has the highest success rate and we have the longest track record. LiceDoctors has treated over 500,000 clients! Among the many reasons that clients choose LiceDoctors is that technicians make house calls.
Whether you are a parent who works out of the house and then come home to care for your family or you are full time at-home parent, you are working and working hard! When a case of head lice throws a monkey wrench into your routine, it can be very overwhelming. In fact, nitpicking and trying to kill lice at home and then seeing that your efforts did not work can be a tipping point for a lot of people.
Whether you are using over-the-counter lice treatments such as Nix Lice Killing products (active ingredient is permethrin), Rid Lice Killing shampoo (active ingredient is pyrethrum), a natural home remedy for lice treatment, a prescription lice treatment, or some combination, if you are not killing lice and getting out the nits, then you have not figured out to get rid of the lice permanently. If that is the case, then you are likely destined for frustration.
If you are like many parents, you may be thinking, “I don’t have the time to drive to a lice salon”, or “I want more privacy than a clinic provides”, or perhaps, “I don’t want to pay the price of a lice treatment center”. If any of those and other concerns resonate with you, LiceDoctors offers the best lice treatment solution for you. You may ask, “Is this lice treatment near me.” The answer is that it is near you....in fact, LiceDoctors makes house calls to conduct professional lice removal service in your own home!
Wondering If At-Home Lice Treatment is for You?
Here are reasons why in-home lice removal is the best lice treatment option:
1. Absolute Privacy
If you don’t want to share your family’s personal business, then in-the-home treatment is the best option. LiceDoctors comes to you in an unmarked vehicle and absolutely protects your confidentiality. We know that people generally don’t want to advertise that they have lice. We are happy to say that negative associations with the condition are diminishing as more people are getting lice and more folks understand that anyone can get it. Nonetheless, it should be your decision regarding who knows that you have contracted a case of lice. When LiceDoctors comes to you, technicians arrive in their regular car with no signage. You do not have to be concerned about being seen walking into a lice treatment salon.
This comment from a mom, Carrie Ann, from League City, reflects this, “I needed lice treatment near me, but my teenage daughter refused to go out to a lice treatment center. She was way too worried about her friends driving by as we were walking into a lice clinic. Then I learned about LiceDoctors and that you all do in-home lice treatment. That was what we needed and it worked out perfectly.”
We know how busy you are; having children means driving all over the place. Why not enjoy the convenience of having a professional lice technician who will come to you? Finding head lice adds exponential stress to your life. Hand this off to an experienced lice professional and that means full door to door service when it comes to LiceDoctors. Your lice specialist will treat your family in your home. All you need to do is pick up the phone and call us. We will come to you, whenever you request lice treatment service, and we will handle the rest.
3. Least Disruptive Option
With at-home lice treatment, when one child is done being treated, he or she can return to normal schedule. At a salon, your children have to sit and wait while each sibling is treated. You want to have as little interruption in your life as possible from head lice. There is no reason why a case of lice has to turn your life upside down. Bring in LiceDoctors and while your technician is killing live lice and nitpicking the eggs from the hair, you can take care of whatever you need to do. You may want to throw a load of sheets into the washing machine or finish something that is due for work. All of this can be done while your child is having lice treatment. As a parent, you too should be checked and treated if you have signs of hair lice, but you don’t need to sit in a chair waiting your turn when you choose in-home lice treatment. Lice do not carry diseases and once you have been professionally treated you will not be contagious. When you bring in LiceDoctors, a case of lice becomes a minor blip in your life....not a major problem!
4. Familiar Environment
Young children especially like to be in the comfort of their own home. Going to a strange new place can be upsetting and unsettling. Your children may be scared or anxious and they may think that they are headed to a doctors’s office. Teenagers also are often stressed about head lice, and having treatment done in a familiar environment keeps everyone a little calmer. It is one variable fewer that you are adding to the equation. You are removing a potentially additional stress factor by keeping your family in their safe place...in their own home.
Eileen in Webster told us, “I was freaked out by the head lice and, sadly, I passed along my fears to my kids. My little one was particularly anxious and I was so relieved to have the ‘hair lady’ come to us. My daughter sat at the table watching her favorite video while she was surrounded by some of her best friends...her dolls. She was as happy as can be and everything went smoothly. Thank you for helping us at home.”
5. No Risk Of Getting Lice in the Waiting Room
All family members should be checked for lice. For those who do not have it, why bring them into a salon and expose them to other cases? Lice are very contagious. Everyone in the family should be checked. There is not much value in treating one sibling and not the other. The second sibling may already have picked up the case of lice but maybe it is too mild for you to spot it… yet or maybe she is lucky, and is lice-free. So if you are seated in the waiting room of a lice clinic on a chair next to someone who has lice, and you are lice-free, you have just increased your chances of getting it! You want to prevent head lice transmission not add to your risk.
If your child had a virus, would you want to bring your other children to the doctor and seat them in the “sick” section of the waiting room? Of course not. You would only do that if you had no other choice. In the case of lice, you do have another choice.
Lice can survive on the furniture for several hours. If you or your child sits on a chair that has just been vacated by someone who has head lice, you may pick up an errant louse. You don’t want to go into a lice removal salon with one child who has lice and leave with the another child who has just been exposed. LiceDoctors mobile lice removal service takes away that risk by making a house call to treat your family.
6. Lower Prices
Yes. You read that right. LiceDoctors in-the-home lice treatment costs less than salon treatments! https://www.licedoctors.com/pricing-for-lice-treatment.html Many people are surprised to learn this; we provide all of these benefits compared to a lice salon and our prices are lower. LiceDoctors prices are among the lowest in the area. We have lower overhead than salons and we pass along savings to you. You can have a your family of four people treated in your home for an average of $375 for the entire family. Now compare that to a salon like Lice Clinics of America that charges $150 to $200 per head or $600-$800 for a family of four. Since LiceDoctors has a 99.9% success record and offers a full guarantee on your lice treatment, which option lice treatment seems better to you?
7. Earlier and Later Hours
LiceDoctors dispatches technicians to you from early morning until late in the evening. A lice expert answers the phone from 7 am until 11 pm every week day and Saturdays and Sundays. Salons generally open in the later morning and close by 5 or 6 pm. Most are closed on Sundays. We understand that when you find lice, you want to be treated soon. We can dispatch an experienced and well-informed lice technician to you at an hour that you designate. If you need help, LiceDoctors will be there, whether it is a Sunday, a holiday, or the middle of a weekday.
8. No Risk of Exposure to Illnesses
In-home lice treatments eliminates the risk of picking up a summer cold or winter flu from other families at a lice clinic. You can receive the best head lice treatment right in your home without exposure to germs from whatever is going around. Sadly, the coronavirus has taught us that we should be careful and with LiceDoctors lice treatment service, you can get all-natural, high quality professional lice service without exposing your family to potential illnesses at a lice salon.
