It is very possible to remove scratches from stainless steel, and I have included some articles, videos and products in the list below. Most of these suggestions involve buffing compounds that will remove light scratches. If the scratch is deep, you may have to resort to using sandpaper first, then buffing and polish compounds (which will be a LOT of work to restore the former finish). I suggest you start with the lighter compounds first and see how it goes. Since you are a professional cleaner, having a buffing compound in your toolbox may be a handy way to give all your clients' stainless steel a nice polish.

Tip: My old cleaning team would rub stainless sinks with baby oil after cleaning. It gives the metal a sparkly sheen and protects from hard water spots and crusts around faucet seams, for a few days at least. After I learned that trick, I always kept some on hand.
