I've a rental home with air conditioner vents in the floors. Someone vomited in the vent accidentally and it smells awful. The tenant sprayed an entire can of Lysol in the vent to no avail. How can I get rid of the smell?

Oh my, what a ride that would be. If you have a service come out, they'll clean the ducts good. You just can't tell how far the vomit traveled into the duct work.

Not easily but very simply.  Take the bent cover off soak and scrub it clean. Then clean down into the vent.
