Forced air for gas furnace and AC. Have tried pet enzyme odor killer- think the only option is to replace duct.

Almost impossible to get it all out. Definately replace the vent if you have that option!

Its probably not the actual metal duct but the wood, drywall, carpet, etc around it that is contaminated. The metal should clean up pretty easily.

Natures Miracle (avail. at pet stores) works very well I've found, for cat urine smells.

As "Brik" said, it's probably more than just the duct, but the surrounding porous areas that are trapping the smell. You'll need to treat and area probably 1-2 feet from the edges of the duct, all the way around.

If you have had carpet in the area, that could be it.

We just replaced our carpet and the old cat urine smell from the previous owner is long gone.

But the possibility of it getting into the wood subfloor might be also an issue.
