Here are a few helpful tips to guide you:
The first thing you need to do is to determine how much nesting and debris you have stuck in your vent.

Generally, sparrows prefer having their nest about 7 feet above the ground. This simply means you will be needing a ladder to access the nest of the sparrows. Before mounting the ladder, wear personal protective equipment to help protect you from the mites and debris which might fall off from the nest while getting rid of it.
Once you have reached the vent, you need to fasten yourself to the ladder or hold the bar close to the vent firmly. Sparrows are sensitive to noise and will often dart out of the vent when you least expect it.
The moment you notice that the adults are out, the next thing you need to do is determine if there any babies left inside the vent. If there are any, humanely remove them with your hands and drop them on the ground.
After removing the sparrows, the next and most important thing you have to do is remove the nest and every other obstruction in your vent. To do this without damaging the vent, you need a long tool, most preferably a "fish". This is a tool with an extendable clog and a hooked edge at the end. With this tool, you will be able to remove all the debris in your vent without damaging it.
Lastly, you need to disinfect the vent using a mild disinfectant. This will help get rid of mites and other harmful micro-organisms that have been harboring in your vent.
