If you constantly find yourself suffering from sinusitis, chances are that you may blame it on any number of things. Chronic sinusitis occurs when the tissue lining of the sinuses becomes inflamed. This can cause an infection as well as the onset of other symptoms such as thickened mucus, sinus headaches, fever, and congested nasal passages.
While there are many different things that can cause you to suffer from chronic sinusitis, chances are that there are things right inside of your home that you may not even be thinking about that could be the cause of your chronic sinus issues. If you are suffering from sinusitis that is simply not clearing up, chances are there is something in your home that is the culprit. Take a look around for some of these things that could be the cause of your chronic sinusitis.
When it comes to cleaning it can be quite easy to vacuum and dust the surfaces of your home. However, some of those hard to reach areas are often ignored. The blinds and ventilators, curtain rails, high shelves, and other nooks and crannies located throughout the home are often the ones that we fail to clean on a regular basis and these are the location where dust often settles.
If you live in an area that is especially dusty or windy, make sure that you are really paying attention to these areas, especially if you are suffering from chronic sinusitis. While it might seem that the vacuum is the best option for cleaning these areas, you may want to keep in mind that the vacuum could be contributing to the dust issue in the home, especially if you do not clean the vacuum filter very often. Dirty filters simply blow the dust back into the air.
