Does Odoban Kill Giardia


The infection is diagnosed with a fecal examination, but since giardia is shed intermittently, it is sometimes a difficult parasite to detect. For this reason, it is sometimes necessary to retest suspected patients in order to reveal an infestation.

Before treating with OdoBan Ready to Use spray, remove as much loose soil from the area as you can. For wet pee spots, soak as much liquid up as possible using clean rags or paper towels and pressure. Do not scrub the carpet, as this can damage carpet fibers, altering their appearance. For normal spots , spray OdoBan on the spot, thoroughly wetting but not soaking the carpet. Allow OdoBan to sit on the spot for 10 minutes, before press drying with a clean cloth or paper towel. Do not scrub. Repeat application and drying, as needed. To remove odors caused by dried pet urine that has soaked deep into the carpet, a soaking application may be necessary. Pour the OdoBan solution on the stain, saturating the surface. This will allow OdoBan to reach the source of the pet urine odors deep in the sponge rubber, below the carpet’s surface. Allow OdoBan to sit for 10 minutes, before press drying with a clean cloth. Do not scrub. Repeat press drying until cloth comes away dry. A carpet extractor or wet vacuum may also be used. Proper drying is critical. Repeat application and drying, as needed.

No. The term “sterilize” is incorrect since sterilization is a method used on critical devices (such as surgical instruments, implants, catheters, and needles) that will enter tissue or the vascular system. Chemical sterilization uses high level disinfectants (such as 2% glutaraldehyde) which will destroy or eliminate all living bacteria, fungi, and their spores when used as directed (Usually requires thorough cleaning and over 6 hours contact time at specific temperatures). OdoBan will however “disinfect” tools and instruments as directed on the label.

OdoBan is also tested as a fungicide and mildewstat. With fungicides the test organism (fungi) is exposed to the solution for 10 minutes (on hard surface – stainless steel rings) at room temperature in accordance with the AOAC Use Dilution Method to demonstrate efficacy of products intended to kill fungi. The method requires 100% kill in 10 of 10 tests.

No. OdoBan will not damage carpet when used as directed. Note: OdoBan should not be used on fourth or fifth generation carpet due to the fact that it will void the warranty. ( Fourth Generation carpet has an application of fluorochemicals that modifies the surface tension of the fiber making nylon fibers more resistant to soils. Fifth Generation carpet has been chemically treated with acid dye resisters to block most common household food and beverage stains.) If OdoBan is accidentally applied on fourth or fifth generation carpet, rinse thoroughly with water.

No. OdoBan is a mildewstat. A mildewstat controls and inhibits mold and mildew growth, but it will not kill what is already there. To use OdoBan correctly on mold and mildew, first use a mold and mildew remover, rinse with water, then spray OdoBan on a regular basis to inhibit its return.
