Forget about Jason and Chuckie. Nothing strikes fear in the heart of a mom like the mention of lice.
If the crawlers have you creeped out, call on the team at LouseCalls for in-home lice removal.
Seven days a week, expert technicians are scheduling appointments (some things just can’t wait). Once a tech arrives, he or she carefully examines each member of the family (from baby to grandma), then removes both the lice and eggs using a nontoxic, pesticide-free product; a microgrooved comb of tempered steel; and a special technique involving fingers (don’t ask, that’s why you hired a professional).
One treatment should do the job (hopefully), but LouseCalls has a ten-day-long e-mail reminder system on keeping your home and family lice and stress free.
And overall less lousy.
