I bought Breezehome and am very happy with it: it is a nice and cozy house with everything I need.

However, I couldn't miss noticing dust spots and spider webs in several places. In dungeons it's acceptable, but in my own house? I sought some way to clean my house.

First I tried to use Unrelenting Force to blow the dust and spider webs away - no luck.

Maybe some fire will burn it and leave the floor/wall clean? No - it just made it worse.

Finally a great idea hit me - broom! I found one, took it and was very disappointed to find I can't equip or use it in any way - also tried just dropping it on the spider webs but of course, that did not help.

Am I doomed to live in a dirty house?

I have to applaud your creative efforts to get rid of it :) –  Hex Jan 17 '12 at 14:56
Eh, I have my XBox sitting next to some cobwebs right now. Do I care? Nah. I simply won't have my skyrim home lookin a mess! –  hydroparadise Jan 17 '12 at 17:50
+1 You first tried Unrelenting Force :-) Hope your furniture was stuck to the floor. :-) –  ヴァイシャリ Apr 20 '12 at 17:36
@desaivv It caused lots of mess, but having such a dirty place I didn't really care.. :) –  Shadow Wizard Apr 20 '12 at 22:12

I believe the cobwebs will be removed when you buy the decorations for your house.

They will indeed. You talk to Proventus Avenicci in Dragonsreach to make the purchases. –  Hex Jan 17 '12 at 15:00
Thanks, so guess I have to accept things I don't really need. Will update once I do that. (Money isn't a problem :)) –  Shadow Wizard Jan 17 '12 at 15:39
@Hex yep I know, bought only Alchemist Lab as that's the only thing I really needed. –  Shadow Wizard Jan 17 '12 at 15:40
If you're strapped for cash, you can always buy an upgrade and then sell all the extras it comes with, for example all kinds of food and dishwares. –  rlb.usa Jan 17 '12 at 16:51
Thanks, for meager 1100 coins I got a real palace.. more than I ever dreamed of and above all - clean. :) –  Shadow Wizard Jan 18 '12 at 7:55

Just make your child do chores; it makes them remove cobwebs.

Not a real answer, I believe, but nice joke! –  DatEpicCoderGuyWhoPrograms May 15 at 20:39

No children in this game, unless you mean a follower e.g. Lydia? –  Shadow Wizard May 15 at 21:28
@ShadowWizard There are children in Skyrim, but for the player to be the parent requires DLC. As for if they can remove cobwebs, I'm not sure. –  Batophobia May 15 at 21:46
@Batophobia oh, never bothered much with DLC's. If the OP will explain in more details it might be a fair answer though. –  Shadow Wizard May 15 at 21:50
