One of the many really fantastic things about Hamilton is how green the city is. If you manage to gain a bit of elevation and gaze across the city, the number of trees in our city is really quite remarkable. With a full 8% of the city's area occupied by forested gullies and with nearly every street, road, residential and commercial property planted out with trees to varying degrees, it makes for a fantastic city environment for us all to enjoy.
That's the good green; something I'm seeing a lot of at the moment is the slightly less welcome variety of green. We're all in the process of disappearing under a blanket of moss and algae! Apart from a handful of frosty starts, the late autumn and early winter have, for the most part, been warm and wet. And with warm, wet weather comes moss, mould and algae - and all three of those household afflictions are hitting us like a trident right now.
Moss, mould and algae are insidious agents of attack on the average kiwi home. Moss traps water like a sponge. If you can imagine taping a thick kitchen sponge to your house and keeping it constantly soaked with water, that's a good representation of how moss acts on your house and property. If it's adhering to roofs, timber surfaces or even brick mortar lines, it's doing harm.
Algae serves as a growing medium for moss. If you're able to rid your home of it, the moss never gets a chance to grab hold.
Mould: the bete noire of asthmatics and allergy sufferers. Mould is really prevalent this winter and we're clearing it away from homes in all corners of the city. If you have a look around shower vents, bathroom and kitchen windows and in the dark internal corners of your house exterior, you'll probably see either a greyish shadow or possibly even a thick black accrual. That's mould. Don't be hard on yourself if you find mould - it's just the warm, damp air at work and your home is most definitely not a case in isolation.
