Mold/dust exposure: It looks like you just have your home remediated to remove mold growth. If it is the case you just expose to a high load of both mold and dust. Such exposure may cause acute rhinosinusitis due to inflammation as those high mold/dust load. If you have asthma you can have asthma flares. If you are allergic to those particular molds, your symptoms can be worse. Seeing an allergist could help.
