We got a rug cleaned last week that had 3 stains. All 3 were from our tiny dog vomiting. One stain had noticeable yellow coloration but the other 2 stains had very little color but the fibers had been scrubbed too harshly and that made the spot noticeable. We had a company come and steam clean. The yellow stain disappeared but where the 2 stains with very little discoloration actually got much much worse. The company came back yesterday and cleaned those spots again and I can not believe it! But those 2 spots got even WORSE?!?!?! I simply do not understand how this can be? I've left a voice message with the company and have yet to hear back. But I wanted to ask other professionals within this industry for input. Any suggestions? I'm not even sure how to proceed at this point?
I can not get the links to my images to work with the "insert image" option. So I will share links below.
Two images are of the stains and one image is the rug content info.

The viscose portion of your carpet takes very little brushing and agitation to chafe it up. It is not correctable except maybe running a safety razor over it to get the surface looking somewhat better.

The vomit may have caused permanent staining and the carpet cleaner may have used too much water and left a browning stain.

Suggest spraying white vinegar and toweling it up. It might help.
