How To Clean Dust in Sims 4
Bust the Dust is a Sims 4 expansion that introduces dust. Regular dusting is key to maintaining your household. If you let it accumulate too much, it’ll spread on your chairs, floors, and other parts of your home. You need to get rid of it to have an immaculate place, but how do you do so?
This article will walk you through cleaning dust in Sims 4. We’ll tell you how to keep dust from building up so your house remains impeccable.
How to Clean Dust Off the Grid
Living off the grid is a popular trend in Sims 4. It adds new challenges, creates unique story lines, and lets your characters take a break from the city commotion. However, it also makes some chores more difficult, such as cleaning dust, because there’s no electricity.
This means you can’t use the vacuum cleaner, as there’s nowhere to plug it in. You’ll need another method to do the work. Solar panels might be the best option if you’ve installed your Eco-Lifestyle pack.
- Purchase a wind turbine and solar panel.
- Make sure your turbine and solar panel are working.
- Place a vacuum cleaner into your inventory and turn it on.
- Get rid of dust.
While vacuuming is straightforward, there are some caveats. Namely, solar panels can only be installed on flat roofs. Therefore, you’ll get an error when trying to mount the unit onto gabled or curved structures.
The easiest workaround is to place your solar panels on non-curved sections of the roof. You could also keep them in your backyard. However, there may not be enough room, and it can ruin the aesthetics of your household.
Another way to clean dust is to upgrade your vacuum cleaner. The game offers four upgrades. Each requires Upgrade Parts and a particular Handiness Skill. Here’s what you need to do once you obtain the necessary elements.
- Click on your vacuum cleaner
- Press the “Upgrade” button. It should have a wrench symbol.
- Select “self-charging power cell.” This enables you to use the device without plugging it into an outlet.
- Vacuum the place.
The final option is to tell your character to pick up dust with bare hands. Command them to go around the place and get rid of any dust piles they come across. Keep in mind that this method may not clean your rooms to perfection. Stains might remain on the floor and make your Sim uncomfortable after some time.
How to Clean Dust Off the Floor Sims 4
Dust typically settles on your floors. The dirtier they are, the longer it will take to clean them. If you let your place get too dusty, it may take you an entire day to deal with the mess. It gets even worse if your Sim has a large family and pets, because dust bunnies accumulate even faster. This means you’ll need to roll up your sleeves more often to stay on top of dust.
Luckily, you can clean your floors with a self-charged vacuum cleaner.
- Click on a floor.
- Select the “Check Dust Levels” button to see how dirty the surface is.
- Place a vacuum into your inventory. You can choose from five devices: three floor models and two handheld appliances. Some are more expensive than others, so pick carefully to stay within your budget.
- Pull out your vacuum and clean your floors. You can also set a particular device as your favorite vacuum. This works great if you have multiple appliances and don’t want to waste time cycling between each one.
Another thing to remember is that expensive vacuums clean your floors faster than cheaper models. You also need to empty them regularly to prevent malfunctions. Additionally, more affordable units need to be cleared more often.
The more you turn on your appliance, the faster the container or bag fills. You can tell if your vacuum needs emptying by performing a visual check. Alternatively, hover over the device using your cursor. Continuing to use the model when the bag is full can lead to breakage.
Is There a Clean Dust Cheat?
There are many cheats you can use to speed up progress in Sims 4, but none of them can dust your house. If the cleanliness system is too much, you can deactivate it. This removes dust from the Bust the Dust kit without deleting other features, such as vacuums and aspirations.
Take the following steps to disable dust.
- Navigate to “Options.”
- Click the “Game Options” button.
- Go to “Pack Settings.”
- Scroll down and find the Bust the Dust Kit section.
- Uncheck the “Enable Dust System” box.
- Click “Apply Changes”.

Your Sims 4 characters detest living in a dusty house, since it causes a number of issues. Cleaning the place keeps them happy. You can use several methods, but the vacuum cleaner is the easiest option. Plug it in or upgrade it with a self-charging cell and say goodbye to dust bunnies.
