I recently just started a carpet cleaning business. I just finished a job on a couch and returned the next day to take some pictures when dry. Can someone tell me what these markings are they don’t brush out. Any solutions to resolve this problem would be great.

Looks like microfiber that wasn't groomed after cleaning. At this point reclean without prespray and then groom with brush or even a white towel would be my suggestion. Always groom front to back or top to bottom and before fabric dries.

Thanks for your pointers. I re rinsed with water and groomed with a brush this was the end result. Fabric looks clean and groomed would you consider this a good result.

Microfiber needs to be brushed after cleaning to remove any upholstery tool marks. These can dry in place. We had one couch way back in the day that someone had cleaned without brushing, and we weren't able to fully remove the marks with a recleaning, be careful. They make fine horse hair brushes that work really good, or can just use a cheap brush from Harbor Freight. Or even a towel in a pinch. But always needs to be brushed. Make sure you brush the entire piece the same direction, so it looks uniform.
