rsync duplicates after file removal

After I have removed some files from the backup computer with the command

find /home/user/.Maildir/.Spam/* -mtime +30 -type f -exec rm "{}" \;

does the command:

rsync -av -e "ssh -l root" host:/home/* /home

create many duplicates.

What I expect is for it to just  "restore" the backup to what it was 
like before.

I'm using rsync  version 2.6.3  and redhat8.

Any ideas?

Best regards
