Albany, NY, September 04, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- September is always a busy time for families as children start their new school year. September is also "Lice Awareness" month as schools want parents to be educated and vigilant about this prevalent nuisance. As Albany mom, Sara W. reports, "School started and what was everyone talking about? Head lice! It used to be that parents chatted about their kids' teachers or friends, now everyone is afraid that as their kids return to the classroom, they are going to pick up a case of lice."
LiceDoctors Head Lice Removal Service, a mobile head lice service that visits families in the Albany area, is only too aware of the prevalence of head lice as the school year launches. According to owner, Wendy Beck, who has nearly 20 years experience in the lice field and is a nationally renowned speaker on the subject, "As the school year launches, we are flooded with calls from the Capital District from parents whose kids have been found to have lice and nits. Back-to-school is a hectic, stressful time for families, and the last thing they need is to find head lice. That is why they call us."
Beck explains that parents become frustrated when they attempt to treat a case of head lice on their own only to see more eggs and bugs a few days later. This is when they reach out for professional help. "In addition, many school nurses recommend that families call us in as they know that we have such a high success rate. LiceDoctors has the track record to back our claim of 99.9% effective treatment." The company has successfully treated over 100,000 clients.
Beck also emphasized that while LiceDoctors has the stability associated with a nationwide company with a board-certified internist on staff, LiceDoctors offers the personal touch of a local service. "We see education as an integral part of our treatment service. We show parents what lice and nits look like, how to kill lice,and what to do to prevent another case of lice.We tell parents why chemical shampoos don't work and discuss what they need to do and not do to treat lice in the home. Our goal is to help a family to cope with a lice outbreak so if they face an outbreak in the distant future they will have the option of self-treating."
