|Publication Date:||1 November 2011|
This test method covers a laboratory test for determining the relative carpet litter-cleaning effectiveness of household vacuum cleaners when tested under standard conditions.
This test method is applicable to household types of upright, canister, combination, and stick vacuum cleaners intended for cleaning carpeted floors as a primary or secondary function.
This test method applies only to the cleaning of litter from carpet, not the removal of embedded dirt. Litter is defined as material that typically clings to the surface of the carpet, such as pet or human hair, thread, and so forth.
