Allergies: dust, spores, mo;d, mildew, animal dander, pollens, seeds, saps can all cause allergic reactiony. Clean all mildew and mold with a dilute solution of soapy water and bleach; however if extensive, you may need a professional cleaning service. Get an allergy screen from your physician.

No: need to see a provider to be tested on molds and if positive need to move because it is hard to remain the mold. The dehumidifier works a little by decreases the moisture that allows fungi to grow but doesn't get rid of it Your constant sinus infections are probably due to the molds see a provider for treatment and help in dealing with this problem
