Sneezing is a reaction of the body to remove any foreign substance that is in the nose. Whenever you sweep out dusty corners, you must be inhaling dust which triggers the sneezing reflex. It is also possible that you are allergic to dust. The solution to this is to wear a mask or a piece of cloth over your mouth and nose when you are in a dusty place. This will protect you from inhaling the dust. You could also take an anti-histaminic tablet which will reduce the reaction to dust. You should take medication only under medical supervision.
