The warm air from the dryer creates a pleasant spot for a nest of birds, but this cozy hideout for small creatures is a dangerous situation for homeowners.
Birds prefer constructing their homes in places which are secure from predators. Unfortunately for homeowners, one of these places includes dryer vents. A bird nest can be as long as two feet in length, which means it can easily obstruct the flow of air, which can be dangerous for many reasons. Special tools are needed to remove the nest, as well as any material which may have collected within it. The biggest danger of bird nests within ducts is a fire, which can potentially destroy your home.
Bird droppings are very acidic and can eat away at construction materials, even a light accumulation of droppings can shorten the life span of a dryer vent duct considerably by eating into the sheet metal materials, eventually causing leaks.
