IEC/ASTM 62885-6:2023 is applicable for measurements of the performance of mains-operated and cordless wet hard floor cleaning appliances for household or similar use. In the case of appliances with combined functionality, this document only addresses the wet cleaning functionality.
The purpose of this document is to specify essential performance characteristics of wet hard floor cleaning appliances that are of interest to users and to describe methods for measuring these characteristics.
This document is not intended for cleaning appliances according to IEC 60335-2-79 and robotic wet hard floor cleaning appliances.
For safety requirements, reference is made to IEC 60335-1, IEC 60335-2-2, IEC 60335-2-10, and IEC 60335-2-54.
