Have you unlocked the vacuum tool in Hotel Renovator but aren’t sure how to use it? Don’t worry: here’s what you need to know.
You’ll unlock the vacuum tool in Hotel Renovator fairly early into your renovation journey. For us, it was after we’d renovated our first three bedrooms. The vacuum is essentially an upgrade to the broom, allowing you to clean floors much more quickly and easily. But how do you use it?
To use the vacuum tool in Hotel Renovator, you first need to select the default cleaning tool. Essentially, all cleaning tools are nested together, and once you’ve selected ‘cleaning’, you can then select the specific tool you need.
If you’re using a controller, press L2/LT to bring up the tool wheel. Select the cleaning tool, which is represented by a mop symbol. By default, it’ll equip you with the sweeping brush. Use left and right on your d-pad to cycle between all cleaning tools. Stop when you get to the vacuum, and voila!
If you’re using keyboard and mouse controls, you’ll need to right click to bring up the tool wheel. Once you’ve equipped a cleaning tool, press Q and E on the keyboard to cycle through all tools.
With the vacuum equipped, you’ll automatically clean the floor as you move it along. You can hold down R2 (or left click) to power it up, which will clean a large area in front of you.
