Birds in Vents
Every home has several types of vents that are easy for birds to enter. Bathroom exhaust vnets, dryer vents and kitchen exhaust vents are the most common. The small spaces make perfect places for nesting. That means nesting materials and the waste that comes along with the birds. As the droppings accumulate so will the odors that you will smell in your Atlanta home. This can also cause the ventilation system to work poorly.
The dryer vent was designed to allow heat and lint to escape. If it is blocked by nesting material and birds the heat can not get through. You might notice your clothing getting extremely hot when drying or needing several cycles to dry. Other exhaust vents with flaps can cause birds to be trapped. They will make a lot of noise trying to get out. You will know if you have a bird trapped in your exhaust vent because of all of the noise. It will sound like a larger animal moving around because they cannot fly in the vents.
