Prevent animals and birds from nesting in dryer vent lines
When the dryer vents lint builds up in your dryer vent exhaust line it becomes too large, the hood flapper doesn’t open and close the way intended. If the flapper isn’t closing correctly, it can become an invitation for birds and small rodents to make your dryer vent their new home. What better place for these creatures to hide during a cold winter than a nice, warm dryer vent line?
In addition to keeping your dryer vents clean, investing in a ventilation cap or dryer vent bird cage guard helps prevent any animals from nesting plus any other exterior debris from build up in your vent while still allowing lint to discharge.
