Hello, fellow simmers! Don't you think we shouldn't need an extension to allow us to clean our Sims' houses as we do in real life? Me too! That's why today I'm presenting you with the Functional Broom mod by MizoreYukii!
WHAT DOES THIS MOD DO? It adds three broom objects to the Sims 4, all functional and Base Game compatible! They can be found in Misc Appliances, Off the Grid Misc, or by searching for Broom inside the search box. They can also be found in dumpsters around your lot sometimes. Note: These objects can be swiped/stolen! There are three brooms available for your Sims to choose from:
  • Medieval Broom: This one is meant to clean slightly less efficiently than the other two. Costs 100 Simoleons.
  • Modern Wooden Broom: Costs 200 Simoleons.
  • Classic Wooden Broom: Costs 300 simoleons.
There are two versions for this mod: one is compatible with the Bust the Dust kit, and the other is for players who don't own that kit. For Bust the Dust owners, the brooms work similar to the vacuums and the interactions appear in the same spots. You'll be able to clean the same objects/areas as you could with the upright/standing vacuum, and the interaction lengths are the same as the vacuum - except for the dust bunnies. For those, the interaction length is slightly longer, and dust bunnies do not acknowledge the broom. One of the vacuum-specific moodlets has been cloned to show and mention sweeping instead. For Base Game owners, there are three interactions to perform around the house: 1. Sweep Around: Once selected, it allows your sim to randomly choose a nearby area to sweep. To use it, click the broom > Sweep Around. 2. Sweep Here: This allows you to control where the Sim sweeps. Simply click one spot on the floor > Sweep Here. 3. Sweep: This one appears on floor objects that can be cleaned (trash, poop, puddles, etc.) and once it finishes, everything will be clean again. To use it, click the dirty spot > Sweep. There's even a custom moodlet!
HOW DO I USE IT? 1. Download the mod here: https://simsdom.net/downloads/296243/new-mod-functional-broom-base-game-btd-supported-updated-11-30-by-mizoreyukii-sims4 2. Install it.

Enter Build Mode and find the broom you want to have in your Sim's home. Place it on a wall where your Sim can easily access it. Now, go back to Live Mode, and you can perform any of the available interactions as described above. And that's it! You can now bust the dust even without owning that kit! I hope you like this mod. Happy simming!
