If you've noticed strange pools on your carpet it could be pile reversal

If you have noticed strange marks forming on your carpet, it could be caused by the process of ‘pooling’, this is when the pile permanently goes into a different direction from the rest of the carpet, making it look like there are pools on the surface.
Pooling or shading is a phenomenon that appears on cut pile carpets, it appears in a random order on some carpets, and it is caused by the reflection of light hitting the strands of the carpet.
Cleaning a carpet will not alter this alteration to the pile of your carpet, the best thing to do if you find this on your carpet is to cover the area with a rug or floor covering.

Here is a video we made in Turkey showing pile reversal on a large carpet.
