Unexplainable damp areas in carpet

Two chronic, unexplainable (to me) damp areas in the household carpet. Help me find the culprit, please.

One is ~ 3' by 1 1/2' located where living room carpet meets kitchen tile.
One is ~3' by 1' located by rear bedroom door (nowhere near a water source).
Neither is ever saturated with water. Just enough to make the carpet a little darker (its a light color carpet)
No indications of dampness on walls or ceilings
Possible causes I Have investigated:
Leaks from roof
faulty/leaking kitchen equipment
faulty/leaking ac unit
faulty attic insulation causing moisture to drip
'm afraid this could indicate a problem with the foundation. Just don't want to go tearing out my floor to find out that it could be something simple I overlooked.
Mefites, please help!
