Head Lice Cannot Live on Furniture, According to Professional Head Lice Removal Salon Nitwits – Press Release
Results are based on years of successful treatment of thousands of customers in the Boston area
Belmont, Massachusetts – NitWits, Boston’s oldest premier head lice treatment salon in the Boston area, released a statement today that head lice are not found on furniture such as couches, chairs, and beds, even when a person with head lice comes in direct contact with it the piece of furniture has them. The result is based on the salon’s more than 15 years of practical experience in treating thousands of clients.
“Many families who have household head lice are very concerned about the possibility of family members spreading head lice on furniture such as sofas,” said founder Berit Pratt, RN BSN MPH. “But head lice never travel to an inanimate object like a couch, rug, or bed linen. They have to stay on the human scalp throughout their life cycle. Otherwise, they will die quickly.”
The NitWits team of professional head lice removers has successfully treated thousands of customers in the Boston area with their proprietary products that contain all natural ingredients and are pesticide free. As Pratt explains, head lice simply cannot survive on a couch.
“There are three main reasons you never find head lice on a sofa or any other piece of furniture,” she explains. “First of all, they need human blood to survive, and you don’t find that on a couch. You will need a meal of blood every two to four hours. Second, they need warmth and a couch is too cold for them. After all, lice are sensitive to light and moisture, so they dry out quickly on a piece of furniture. “
The medical salon also informs its clients that head lice have claws so they can grab and hold strands of human hair. Hair that brushes back on a couch or other furniture surface does not transfer head lice to the object.
This means that families faced with head lice do not have to worry about keeping all surfaces of their home clean or constantly washing linens for fear that lice will live on beds and furniture.
