This photo is after cleaning. I believe the sofa is linen or a cotton/linen blend. The photo is a little dark, but basically the sofa is super bright white and it's been trampled on for a couple years by a dog. Spots and soil alllll over it. I used tmf cotton and linen shampoo and extracted with sapphire tool. I even sprayed it all down with some peroxide stain remover and towered it in after I was done. Overall, almost no stains came out.
I told them I'd come back and try something else. Thinking some actual hatian cotton cleaner might do the trick? Or is this just a lost cause. I hate couches like this.... luckily they don't come up that often.

In my experience it's just there....I just cleaned one almost identical last week. She hires me to clean it almost every year and every year it's the same amount of stains and they never go away.....I've tried all kinds of combos of cleaners and the browning and water rings never go away. Whatever, she still pays me and is satisfied with the work.

did you test fiber?
after confirming linen fiber, did you disclose warnings to owner?
did you document warning?
did you test for fire retardant?

Did you offer to use a anti browning treatment and explain the pros and cons of it?

You will probably end up having to use a browning treatment and all natural rinse.

Youll need to do a thorough evaluation and be honest.

you might end up having to pay the owner for the current value of the furniture piece or replacement cost for cushions, and a sofa cover

Nah...I'm not going to buy it. It was absolutely trashed before i started cleaning. They'd never expect that of me. I asked them if they wanted me to clean 1 cushion first and they said no just do the whole thing.
