Cleaned a carpet 2 days ago and received pictures of some browning and white streaks. Suggestions to remedy? Would a coffee/browning Encap work ? Thank you in advance!

Lightly mist with an acid rinse, rake it( or other form of agitation) to get rid of the wand marks you left from original cleaning and extract. When cleaning berber, lower pressure is recommended(300-350) psi and lot of dry passes to avoid browning.
Speed dry would also helped.
I'm not familiar with a particular encap product, but coffee/ tannin remover would certainly help.
I believe the marks you refer as streaks are caused by wand( perhaps high flow, not enough suction and/ or insufficient dry passes.
Sounds about right?
Retract your steps and you'll realize what went wrong...
 

keep it clean

As I read this I just read it to my client (lifelong best friend) and he pulled this out and said every time the vacuum. View attachment 80904
Stuff is trash. It ruins carpet. It ruins pad. And it destroys the vacuum's. And they are paying for it to do all of this. Hate that crap. No vacuum is powerful enough to get that fine dust back out of the carpet. It migrates all the way through to the subfloor. And smells like dirty laundry. Did i mention the stuff is trash lol.

I would rake, vacuum really good and then bonnet clean that one with an o2 booster. I've seen similar situations when they used carpet fresh powder all the time after they vacuumed.

Everyone's badder than Leroy Brown. That idiot was too busy checking out the wife of a jealous man when he was shootin' dice a week ago Friday. By the time that dude got done kickin' his ass Leroy looked like a jigsaw puzzle with a couple of pieces gone.:ROFLMAO:
