Dust!?!?!!?!?!?

My room gets incredibly dusty...well you cant see it but it COVERS everything electrical in my room (nearly everything), clogs up the computer etc and is probably bad for my health.

Any tips on keeping dust count low? Id love an air filter lol

Get a wooden floor. No carpet.

i would have thought a carpet would hold the dust where as a wooden floor would allow it to be free to get wafted.. is that a word??... up when electrical items either get charged up or fans in pcs kick in.

Could always get yourself a little french maid? she would keep the dust down for you??

Get a air purifier, you can pick some up that are not even that expensive.

I have one running 24/7 it makes the air fresher (you can feel it kinda strange). Some cheap ones can be noisey though so have a think and a read . Keep dust down too.

How about a big Van de Graaff running in corner of your room? 2million volts of static electricity to attract all that dust
