Provided it is done with a vacuum in great shape and done correctly, the answer is 80% of all dry dirt (excludes the oily dirt). What is done correctly, you ask? In the open areas, 5 forward passes and a returning 5 backward passes each taking 5 seconds per forward pass and 5 seconds each backward pass to complete at the very minimum. These areas require a daily vacuuming regiment. Areas covered with furniture or in closets are to be vacuumed with 3 forward passes and a complimentary 3 backward passes, each taking 5 seconds and these need to be vacuumed once per week. That is the very minimal treatment for your carpet.

Everyone has an excuse that sounds good to them for why they can't do this much labor around the house. It all boils down to living life as a responsible adult.
