Sydney Wedding Gown Preservation
Our Guarantee: We will clean your gown to the best of our ability, using the latest and safest cleaning techniques available to us. Our policy is to always favour the quality of the fabric, beading and laces, over the stain. This may mean that in some instances, there will be remaining markings on the gown. This is particularly true of silk. It does not mean we have not cleaned the gown properly, but have used our experience and expertise, to ensure that the overall gown remains in an undamaged condition. Feel free to discuss the clean with our staff upon final inspection.
We guarantee to clean your wedding gown to the best of our ability, employing the most suitable and safest procedures, without causing damage to the fabric, stitching or beadwork. In some cases, a stain will be unable to be removed without causing disintegration of the fabric, or damage to the beadwork.
Our policy is that the safekeeping of fabric and beadwork, will always be prioritised over removing the stain.
Due to the sentimental value of each gown that we work with, we view the preservation of your gown as a collaborative process between you and our team. There may be instances, where you will be requested to inspect the gown before a further clean is attempted.
Hand cleaning is the safest method of cleaning for delicate beadwork on your wedding gown. We use Hand Cleaning on synthetics as it is a highly effective cleaning method and will protect the crystals and beadwork on your wedding dress from the heat and chemicals of dry cleaning. The majority of wedding gowns that we work on, are hand cleaned.
Hand cleaning a wedding gown has several advantages:-
With technology developments in dry cleaning solvents and equipment over the last ten years, there is so much resource available to us whilst dry cleaning your wedding dress. Dry cleaning is used on all natural fibres such as silk, but also rayon and some acetate. Virgin solvents are always used in our wedding dress dry cleaning process. Our team will determine the most effective and safest method for dry cleaning your wedding gown. This will be based on the designer’s instructions and also the testing of the beadwork on your wedding dress.
