Duct odors

Had rats, donít have them now nor should I in the foreseeable future. Any thoughts on how I can sanitize the duct because my whole coach smells. No dead rats.

1. Shop vac with hose long enough to reach from vent to heat source.

2. Dryer vent cleaning brush.

3. Rags.

4. Fabuloso.

Using the above, shop vac to suck out as much debris as possible. After shop vac, dryer vent cleaning brush to clean ductwork. Re apply shop vac for more debris. Using dryer vent cleaning brush, figure out how to secure a rag to the brush. (Dont wanna lose the rag in the ductwork), with the Fabuloso. Clean till rags come out clean. Wallah! You're done.

Buy an inexpensive Ozone generator, close up the RV and run it inside for a week or 2. You will be amazed at how well it gets rid of odors. Follow instructions closely as Ozone is an irritant,
