    Every other room in the house is spotless yet for some reason my room attracts all the dust in the southern US. I even bought an air purifier to remedy this but even that seems like it's making a negligible difference. I try to vacuum and dust my room at least once a week. After a week every surface in my room is covered in two meters of dust.

    What could possibly be the source of all this dust?

    Its shed skin!

    Or maybe your AC?

    While shed skin is certainly a component, textiles (jeans, shirts, sheets, bedding) can contribute vast amounts of dust in the form of lint.

    I have some colored sheets, and I can see the corresponding color in my vacuum cleaner dust receptacle... White sheet = white dust too. New blue jeans, blue dust for a while.

    I know the feeling, our master bedroom is the same way. We will dust the room and an hour later there will be dust on the headboard. Drives me up a wall!
