We had a similar situationI've seen it on leather furniture. Both the legs bleeding and the center screw holding them onto the either rusting or leaching out a yellow chemical.
First saw this in a posh law firm 30+ years ago. All of their new chairs had plastic wheels, so the tech didn't consider them a problem. We were able to remove about half the ninety or so stains, and replaced the carpet in one office to use the remainder for inserts.
Since then every wheel or leg gets tabbed, blocked or the chair is put up to make sure it doesn't happen again.
When anyone contacts me with a "potential claim level" damage call, the first question I ask is this:We had a similar situation
fortunately the customer was also a friend
he joked that it was great that had permanent marks so he knew exactly where to put the furniture when it was moved out to clean or vacuum
expensive furniture but plastic legs that looked like wood grain
How many daughters are you allowed to marry?When anyone contacts me with a "potential claim level" damage call, the first question I ask is this:
"What is your relationship like with your customer? If they'd let you marry their daughter, this will be an easy fix. If they want your firstborn's blood as a sacrifice for your sins, nothing you do will get you out of this claim"
Lucky you on that one Fred.
