How Do Birds End Up in the Dryer Vent?
It is quite easy for birds to find their way into your dryer vent. The dryer vent comes with 3 flap covers that open to allow the flow of air from the house when the dryer is on and they close when you turn off the dryer. There are two things that attract birds to the dryer vent.
The first thing is the height of the dryer vent which is a good distance from the ground and far away from predators. The second thing is the warm air that attracts birds, especially in cold weather.
So, when one of the flaps on the vent comes off, you may find birds living in the dryer vents. If one of the birds is pulled or pushed into the dryer hose it could die and start rotting leaving you with an unpleasant odor.
How Do You Know There's a Bird in the Dryer Vent?
There are several signs that tell you there is a bird stuck in your vent. For example, you might hear scratching sounds when the bird is trying to escape.
If it is a young bird, you will definitely hear chirping sounds like the bird cries for help. You can also smell a strong rotting odor if the bird is already dead and decomposing.
