Buck Creek Trail

“The Buck Creek Trail is 3.5 miles long. It begins at Morning Star Drive and ends at Forest Road 734. This trail climbs steadily up along Buck Creek, past the old site of the Avon Ranger Station, and eventually crosses the Nottingham Ridge Trail and ends at the Red and White Mountain Road #734.”

Limestone Park

“Limestone Park’s interesting combination of wetlands, grasslands, and Tupelo Gum swamp is good for wading birds, swamp and marsh birds, grassland species, and some waterfowl in winter. You will also find songbirds and shorebirds in migration. Best birds are Anhinga (breeds here), and Bobolinks, Dickcissels, and Grasshopper Sparrows (late spring). A Roseate Spoonbill has been spotted here in a few summers.  The City of Alabaster and Birmingham Audubon built a handicapped-accessible Birding Observation Deck overlooking the wetlands on the North-western side of the park, with adjacent parking for all.  Located in a rural industrial area in southern Shelby County, this park preserves a rich remnant of the habitat mosaic that makes this area especially attractive to birds.”

What Is That Strange Smell?

Creosote

Strange, pungent smells are hard to ignore. As spring and summer are coming, the warmer the weather becomes. The warmer the weather, then quicker things start to heat up. One place that heats in the summer time and creates a smell is an uncleaned chimney. When there is creosote or soot left behind in the chimney flue then the risk of a smell increases. Both left behind products are flammable. Below are causes and how to remove the unwanted smell.

Odor Causes

There is an assortment of things that cause chimney odors. The most recognized reasons for the smokestack smells are:

  • Negative Air Pressure:
    • air that moves through your chimney; this brings in fireplace smells and chimney odors
  • Excess Creosote & Soot:
    • this odor is often described as a heavy smoky smell
  • Moisture:
    • unless the fireplace is totally closed and protection measures are taken to stop water interruption, smelly scents can overpower the smokestack and home.
      • no one wants a smelly home; take care of the smell before it becomes unbearable
  • Animals (Dead or Alive):
    • if you don’t have a chimney cap or if creatures have bitten through the screen on the smokestack top, it is truly conceivable that animals have moved to the fireplace; creatures cause an assortment of odor issues
How to Remove the Fireplace Smell

Now we know what causes the chimney smell, it is an ideal opportunity to fix the issue. It may seem as there is no hope, making the chimney smell new again isn’t excessively troublesome. A chimney inspection and sweep are two great initial steps to any small issue, as it will remove creosote and preclude other normal issues that may have caused the smell. Dried fallen leaves and decaying creature(s) are discovered and removed with a cleaning that eliminates these options as a cause of the smell. Always a smart choice to have a routine scheduled cleaning to ensure there are no dead animals left behind.

In the perfect world, the outside of the smokestack would be waterproof as it could be expected under the circumstances and not permit dampness or moistness into the fireplace shaft. Adding a chimney cap to the fireplace not just forestalls against overabundance dampness in the stack, but it gives a boundary to keep creatures and garbage from falling into the smokestack. Best to have a cap install to lower the amount of moisture trapped inside the chimney.

Other Options to Prevent Foul Chimney Odors:
  • Close your fireplace damper
  • Get a fireplace door installed
  • Get a chimney chase cover
