Miami, FL (PRWEB) August 30, 2013
If you run a child care facility, camp, or school, chances are you will encounter head lice at some point. Regular screening for head lice is wise, and when lice are discovered, children should be sent home and not readmitted until the lice problem is taken care of. School nurses and other personnel can check for lice, but this can keep them from other, more important duties. Day care providers, schools, and camps often rely on a professional head lice screening service like Lice Troopers to thoroughly screen children for head lice.
Regular Screening Can Stop Infestation Before It Starts
When children are screened regularly for lice, infestations can be stopped in their tracks. At the beginning of the school year or before children arrive at camp, make your head lice policy clear to parents so they will know what to expect should their child be discovered to have lice. By staying on top of the problem through screening programs, there’s lower risk of a major problem affecting more children and possibly staff as well. Your head lice screening service should employ professionals with extensive experience finding and treating lice.
Keep Parents Informed About Their Lice Removal Options
For lice extraction in home, parents can turn to professional services that send technicians into the home to take care of lice quickly, discreetly, and without the use of harsh chemicals. Many parents don’t know about in-home lice treatment and would prefer this option if a child is found to have lice. Make sure the parents of children at your facility know that this is an option. You should also stress the importance of a follow-up nit check to ensure children can return to school, day care, or camp without the risk of spreading lice to others.
Don't Let head lice harm your family. Treatment in the Home Is a Service Parents Appreciate
Though lice treatments are readily available in stores, these treatments are far from ideal, because they use harsh chemicals, and because lice have evolved to be more resistant to these treatments, even if parents follow the directions meticulously. Home lice removal services should use the proven method of manual lice extraction using a professional lice comb coupled with gentle conditioner that soften hair and make the process easier. Home lice eradication services should also follow up to ensure all lice and eggs are gone.
Follow-Up Care Is Critical to Ensuring Lice Eradication
For lice extraction in home situations, parents should insist on follow-up care to ensure no nits were left behind. In your facility’s lice policy, you should emphasize the importance of proper cleaning and laundering in the home to prevent re-infestation. Removing lice is painstaking, but follow-up screening is critical. With a clear head lice policy and recommendations to parents about trusted lice removal services like Lice Troopers, you can help ensure children in your facility remain lice-free.
