if you have a dog or cat that wont help! if not then give you room a good hover then dust round with a damp cloth, i find thats better than a duster and polish. i have a old spray bottle with very watered down bleach init which i do my cleaning with.
hope you found this helpful x

I think you have several problems. To start if you have carpet and you vacuum regularly, you need to know something about vacuums. They can only trap the things you suck up that are bigger than the holes in you vacuum bag. If the bag didn't have holes for the air to escape then it would pop when you turned it on. So all the tiny particles that escape through the holes float back into the air and resettle on the furniture and floor and here we go again. You might also check the quality of air conditioner filter you use. Some are more efficient than others. Damp mopping where you can and using a dusting solution can solve some of the problem. I got rid of my carpet and about two thirds of my problems went to the land fill. Your cloths tend to shed particles also. Sweeping is worse than vacuuming and especially for your health. You may not know it but you filter a lot of trash out of the air with your lungs. I am very concerned about indoor air pollution and many people have the same problem. I have a site that deals with these same issues if you would care to check it out. This is a free site and requires no login or information for these tips. Just want people to be healthy.

Your room could be located in a dusty part of your house. THe ceiling might rattle/shake/etc and dislodge particles of plaster and the like, which will settle as dust in your room.

My house is always under construction. When we're doing anything involving sheetrock, demolition, wallpaper mud, paint sanding, or anything like that, a nice layer of powder settles on everything in our house. Especially my room, it seems, because it has two doorways.

Also, I seem to get more dust in the part of my room located near the laundry room. Probably due to dryer lint. And short of sealing my room off from the world, I can't do much about that.

Try using Pledge or a similar product when you dust furniture, and consider purchasing a humidifier. The moisture may help dust settle better, if you seem to have a lot floating around. Also, when you vacuum, make sure the bag or canister doesn't leak. If you have hardwood floors, use a Swiffer or Pledge for floors (not the regular kind because it'll make it too slippery to walk). A broom tends to push dust around.
