Standard Test Method for Measuring the Hard Surface Floor-Cleaning Ability of Household/Commercial Vacuum Cleaners
$ 68.00 In stock

Significance and Use

This test method will provide an indication of the ability of the vacuum cleaner in removing dry debris from hard surface floors. The cleaning ability in the laboratory test will not be the same as in home cleaning; however, in most cases, a vacuum cleaner that performs well in the laboratory will clean well in a home.

To provide a uniform basis for measuring the performance described in 1.1, standardized test hard surface flooring and standardized test debris are used.

Scope

1.1 This test method provides only a laboratory test for determining the relative hard surface floor-cleaning ability of household/commercial vacuum cleaners when tested under specified test conditions.

1.2 This test method is applicable to household/commercial types of upright, canister, combination, and stick vacuum cleaners that use a dry primary dirt receptacle and are intended for cleaning hard surface floors as a primary or secondary function.

1.3 This test method applies only to the removal of dry debris from hard surface floors, not the removal of embedded dirt from carpet.

1.4 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.

This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
