Can asbestos wrapped rigid ducting be safely cleaned in California?

By "rigid" I'll assume that you mean standard sheet metal that has had asbestos smeared onto the OUTSIDE at the joints (and maybe more). OK?
If so... and if you DON'T DISTURB the asbestos you'll be fine.

The one thing to do though is add another coat of duct sealing mastic that will ENCAPSULATE the asbestos. You can get it anywhere.

As to cleaning the INSIDE of these sheetmetal ducts... sure.

Are you 100% sure it is asbestos?
Has it been wraped or coated to seal it?
