Soiling resistance and soil release of carpets are improved by coating the carpets or carpet yarns prior to carpet manufacture with a polymeric material containing either (A) a blend of a methacrylic acid emulsion copolymer and an epoxy resin or (B) a methacrylic acid emulsion copolymer having epoxy monomer units therein. The copolymer in either case contains 40-75% by weight methacrylic acid and the glass transition temperature of cured coatings of the polymeric material is at least 50.degree. C.
