Rid of mold, save your sinuses
get Fungal infection is a leading cause of chronic sinus problems, though it’s rarely identified as the culprit. One important study from the Mayo Clinic suggested that fungi, not bacteria or viruses, cause almost all chronic sinus problems. The first line of defense: get rid of mold in the home. First, take steps to prevent it: be sure your indoor air isn’t too humid, ensure good ventilation in bathrooms and attics, stop leaks, keep crawlspaces dry, and route water away from your home’s foundation.
