How/where to get Tamron 18-250 serviced?

I have this lens on my K20D and love the results! It is my general use combo. It is still in very good condition but there may be some small amount of dust particles inside. I just want to get it cleaned to quench my obsession! Where can I send this to? Will Tamron clean older/discontinued lenses or are there anybody else who does that? If I chose to do that, how expensive would it be?

TIA...

Dust generally doesn't affect image quality, and it can be expensive to get rid of as it basically requires complete disassembly of the lens. Doesn't Tamron offer 6-year warranty, though? I'm not sure if they'd cover such a cleaning, but it wouldn't hurt to get in touch with them to find out!

Ok, I will shoot Tamron an email and see what they have to say!
