Possible white mold problem

One of the rooms in my house has had a musty smell in it as well as a white dusty/mold looking substance on random objects. We had a mold inspector come by for free and they measured the walls for moisture, which there was none. They didnít seem too concerned and just told us to keep an air purifier going. But now Iím seeing this substance on random objects in most rooms downstairs. So my question is does this actually look like mold and if t does, any advice on how to deal with it? We donít have the money to hire specialists for removal but Iím honestly pretty nervous and so exhausted with worrying about it and finding more of it. Some pictures:

Edit: Especially curious about the stuff on the game console cords. Does it look like mold or am I just being paranoid? :\

It looks like drywall dust. When is the last time you changed your furnace filters?

A few months ago, as far as I know we donít have to change it for a little while. We do have drywall that weíve drilled into but this stuff shows up on objects that arenít near walls as well.

Plastics have a static charge that really attracts it. So possibly there is dust under the carpet that is getting airborne. Shampooing carpets might help. Only idea I have.
