Frieze carpet is much like shag carpet. Shag carpet tends to be longer, while frieze carpet strands are less than 3/4-inch. In order to clean a frieze carpet,you need to make sure that your vacuum cleaner has a rotating beater bar that agitates the carpet so that the vacuum can suck up the dust and dirt in the carpet nap. 

*   Set your vacuum to the right carpet height setting. This will ensure that you are getting all the embedded dirt out of the carpet as well as the dirt that is in the top layers generally, frieze carpet will require your vacuum to be set on reqular or medium high.

*   Vacuum the carpet thoroughly. Run the vacuum over each spot in the carpet at least four times, with "back and forth" being one time. This will not only poll all the dirt out of the frieze carpet, but it will also give the vacuum a chance to grab dirt that has been agitated with the beater bar. If you only the vacuum over an area once then it will just stir up the dirt but not pick it all up. Generally, this will be sufficient to clean your frieze carpet.
