Should the house be disinfected if someone has head lice?

Because head lice don’t live long off the scalp, there is no need for extra cleaning.
To get rid of lice or nits from items like hats or pillowcases:
  • Wash the items in hot water and dry in a hot dryer for 15 min; or
  • Store the items in an airtight plastic bag for 2 weeks.
