How do you clean the outside screen on the vent? It is filled with lint

Asked by: vents
First the Universal Bird Guard should be detached from the wall, then all lint should be removed manually or by using an appropriate brush. The vent should be cleaned as well: if there's a flapper, it should be opened and the inside of the vent cleaned with a brush. Kits exists that can be connected to drills in order to clean the ducts. If the flapper is not there but louvers are present, they should be temporarily removed in order to clean the inside to the vent, and then re-installed. If louvers are fixed, the vent itself should be temporarily removed to clean the vent and then re-installed.

Customer Reviews

Universal Bird Guard is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the job. Good quality and Made in the USA. If they came in other colors that would be great, but you can spray paint them (like I did) whatever color you like in a matter of minutes. Install is very easy and they keep the birds and other unwanted pests out of your vents. The other review here describing hidden screws must be for another product. If you look at the picture of this product it's plain to see there are four mounting slots for screws, not included. This cage goes over existing vents.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the moeny and effort We had an issue with a bird who decided to create a nest in one of our vents without paying rent. :-) This cover should be installed on every home to keep bird and animals from nesting in your dryer and bathroom vents. Depending on where your vents are located the installation is simple. All you need is a few long screws (Home Depot will help you get the correct screws for your home) and a screw driver. You may also need a ladder if the vents are up high or on the second floor.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from this product is difficult to clean without instructions Once the cage gets filled with lint and the flaps inside no longer open, there are no instructions on how to remove the grill so you can remove the lint. The screws are INSIDE and covered by the lint so the homeowner has no clue how to remove the vent cover. It requires either the person who installed it or a service man to know what to do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from does the job - keeps birds out of vent easy to install, just 4 screws and a battery powered screw gun

Rated 5 out of 5 by from where is it made? can someone tell me where it is made? I was at Lowes and saw a couple other brands all made in China. Why doesn't Home Depot put country of origin on their website?
