There is a white Carpet with a yellow area. I believe it is from the backing of a throw rug but not sure. I have cleaned the area twice and both times comes out perfectly white. After drying it is yellow again. Thoughts?

Dry it downside.
If it has a cotton backing its wicking the latex, in other words its suffering latex deterioration

Think hes talking about the oil residue from the back of a rug. Transferred to the face of the installed carpet below.

Im not expert like most of the gents on here, iv little over 5 years of experience cleaning carpets.
I will write my input.
Iv came across similar situation, i had to go twice to fix the similar problem. It was beige berber and had same problem.
It cleaned out well just with water, without using any chems. I tried dabbing white cotton towel on the treated spot to check if it wick on towel, result was negative. I then use hair dryer, sat there almost 35-40 minutes to dry the spot. Told customer to call us if it comes back, and never got call.
