You should consider the following when choosing the best lice removal service: the city or area the service covers, the cost of the service, and the kind of products used. A reputable lice removal service will generally offer a guarantee. It is always a good idea to check that the service is licensed and insured.

When you contact a lice removal service, first check the area it covers. This will not only save time, but also eliminate the frustration of being informed that your area is not covered.

Costs varies from one service to the next. Some services have a minimum charge, and then add additional fees based on duration of the treatment. Others charge travel fees, and may even charge extra for the products used. This is why it is important to see if there are any hidden charges beforehand. In some cases additional treatments will be required, and some services offer these follow up treatments at a lower rate.

Another important factor is the kind of products used. A reputable lice removal service should not use pesticides or potentially harmful products. It is also wise to check that over-the-counter products are not used since these contain potentially harmful ingredients such as permethrin. Some services offer all natural treatments, and if you are concerned with safety, these services could be a good choice.


Check if a guarantee is offered. Most lice removal services will offer a guarantee of some kind, but the terms vary from one service to the next. Find out how to obtain a guarantee and what the terms are before contracting with the service.

A reputable lice removal service should have a business license, be insured, and screen its employees. It is important to check that the staff member delivering the service has had a background check since he or she will probably enter your home. Some individuals try to start up lice removal services without the necessary training or knowledge, so check that the service you hire has a good reputation.

If your situation is especially urgent check how soon an appointment can be scheduled. Most lice removal services should be able to arrange the treatment within 24 hours, but it can be longer depending on the demand.
