There are two major consumer performance assessments of wet carpet cleaning appliances (i.e. Extractors), those being carpet cleaning performance, and carpet cleaning wetness. Carpet wetness is an indirect indication of the cleaner's suction performance and carpet drying time, both of which are meaningful to the user of such products. The F11.35 Subcommittee has developed a method for assessing cleaning performance of these products but currently has not established an industry standard for assessing carpet wetness.
The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
