1. Look Out If There Are Eggs Or Baby Birds Inside
One of the most important steps to take before removing nests from the dryer vent is to check if the nest has eggs or baby birds in it. Birds mostly nest near the opening of the vent. But, to be safe and remove the nest without hurting the birds we advise you to preventive measures once the birds have vacated the space with their little ones.
2. Clean Up Nesting Materials And Droppings
Nesting materials and bird droppings are subjected to block the vent. In order to clean the vent, open the vent doors and using a wire hanger, bring out the nest.

Moreover, it is recommended to wear disposable latex gloves when you are wiping the area.
