I have an embarrassing question. I feel like one of those husbands on a situation comedy where I should have just called someone in the first place.
So with that said.
I have a clogged dryer vent. Using a dryer vent cleaning kit (long flex rods that you screw together and snake the vent) I was able to remove a lot of lint.
As I continued it’s now obvious I did not tighten one of the rods sufficiently. So now I have lint, flexible rod and brush head stuck in the vent (hence the comedy).
I have tried several ways to free this up (Short of moving the dryer and plowing air thru the vent).
Since the flex rod has metal I attached a strong magnet to an electrician’s wire snake hoping to snag it and pull it out. But no joy.
What I would love to find is a flexible snake that has a handle allowing me to GRAB and hold onto the rod and pull out.
Is there such a tool? Or are there others was to clear the vent?
