Keep note of stains
We conduct a consultation right at the counter when you first come in. We take note of every stain and sign of damage to ensure we are using the correct procedures. Take note of any other substances that may have come in contact with your garment that may be invisible.
We test everything first
There are many elements to a wedding gown. We pre-test everything down to the beads and sequins to ensure that nothing will be damaged during the cleaning. For example, some accents are glued to the dress and the glue can become soft or tacky when in contact with certain solvents.
We won't risk anything
If we do find any problems or significant risks, we will notify you before taking steps further. We will never dry cleaning anything delicate without your consent.
