If you’re also moving between directions you’ll only see the dirt in the back and front of the carpet, not on the sides.
The most effective vacuum pattern is one that is cross. Vacuum a rug room or a space horizontally, and then vacuum the same rug, room, or the area vertically and in reverse. This method is extremely beneficial to remove the dander and hair of pets out of carpets as the hair of pets and dust are likely to become entangled in each aspect of the carpet’s fibers.
