Wedding Gown Cleaning
"My nieces wedding dress was streaked with mystery yellow throughout. This was not discover until 2 weeks prior to the wedding. Janet Davis dry cleaning pulled off a miracle. The dress turned out gorgeous and they kept us in the loop with the process along the way. Highly recommend." - ★★★★★ WeddingWire Review
Janet Davis Cleaners has cleaned thousands of wedding dress since opening in 1938. Cleaning wedding gowns is something we do every day, not just once in a while. Each gown is cared for individually, never mixed with regular dry cleaning. We have cleaned gowns of all shapes, styles, and vintages and have many cleaning methods at our disposal, some proprietary. What does all of this mean to you? We have the expertise and experience necessary to properly clean your wedding gown while preserving the intricate details that make your gown so uniquely yours.
Step 1: Inspection prior to cleaning
The first thing we do before cleaning your wedding gown is a close inspection. We are checking to make sure the care label in the gown actually applies to the gown (sometimes the care label inside your dress is wrong). We do this by testing a small, inconspicuous part of the gown to make sure the composition and materials of the gown matches the label. Next we test several beads on the gown to ensure they wont come off, get damaged, or damage your dress during the cleaning process.
Step 2: Preparation for cleaning
Based on the results of the inspection from the first step, we will select the best cleaning method (we have several cleaning methods, all on-site, to choose from) for your gown. For certain methods, all of the bead work must be covered and any flowers and hoops may have to be removed. Any details that have to be removed are meticulously marked so that they may be properly replaced after cleaning.
Step 3: Pre-spotting
This is where the bulk of the work happens on your wedding dress. All of the dirty areas and spots are meticulously treated prior to cleaning. This step requires an intimate knowledge of fabrics and spot removal chemistry. A dry cleaning technician will spend an unlimited amount of time on your dress going over every inch. Not every spot and stain can come out, but no expense is spared in trying.
Step 4: Cleaning
The cleaning phase cleans your entire wedding dress and also flushes out any spotting solutions we used during the pre-spotting phase. Every gown is cleaned individually, never in combination with regular dry cleaning or other wedding gowns.
Step 5: Steaming/Pressing
Your wedding gown will be pressed or steamed to remove the wrinkles from the cleaning process. Our technicians have the experience necessary to know how to press or steam (and also when not to press or steam) your wedding gown.
Step 6: Inspection & Re-assembly
We perform a close inspection to be sure all removable stains are gone. At the time we are re-attaching any flowers or other details that had to be removed prior to cleaning.
