Wedding Gown Cleaning & Preservation Los Angeles
We’ve cleaned thousands of wedding dresses over the years, and no two have been alike. Cleaning and preserving bridal gowns is a labor of love at Door To Door Cleaners that demands extra hand care and attention to detail. Our specialty. While many cleaners outsource this type of work, we’re honored to care for our brides’ gowns.
Our wedding dress experts closely inspect every gown that passes through our doors, using as many as three different treatments to completely cleanse all stains. We pay special attention to trouble areas such as dirty hemlines and ‘invisible’ stains like Champagne that may not be immediately apparent. Our staff receives regular training in not only the latest fabricare techniques, but also fashion trends from top bridal designers like Vera Wang, Carolina Herrera, and Pnina Tornai.
We offer more than basic bridal gown cleaning: our exceptional preservation process will ensure your gown is ready for future generations to wear down the aisle! Our museum-quality process treats your gown to a gentle and thorough storage process originally developed for the Smithsonian! After cleaning, we fold the gown with layers of acid-free tissue to protect the gown’s form and prevent future blemishes or crease marks.
The gown is then wrapped in acid-free muslin, and topped with a dust cover. This presentation allows the gown to breathe while protecting the textile from light and mildew. Finally, we include an acid-free preservation chest (with a special window for you to view your gown at any time), as well as special gloves for handling.
All gown preservations at Door To Door carry a warranty backed by the National Association of Wedding Gown Specialists. Return your preserved bridal gown to any of hundreds of participating Certified Wedding Gown Specialists, and they will inspect and press the gown at no charge. Please note: proper handling and storage must be observed to take advantage of this offer.
Wedding dress inspection and estimates are always complimentary. Contact us at 877-374-2567 to discuss your bridal gown.You can also fill out our wedding gown cleaning estimator here.
Wedding Dress Care Tips – Before Your Wedding
Southern California is a beautiful place to get married – but even picturesque settings like the beach or a vineyard can be hazardous for your wedding gown.
Be careful around food, cosmetics, and dirt in outdoor areas. Proper bustling ahead of a dry run can also go a long way toward preventing potential soiling.
Unfortunately, there’s no foolproof method to avoid any blemishes or wrinkling – which is why Door To Door Cleaners offers comprehensive touch ups of your gown prior to the ceremony.
We’ll spot clean any imperfections, repair your gown’s fabric or ornamentation and perfectly press the bridal dress along with accessories such as your veil. And, if your gown is too big to fit in a car without becoming wrinkled, we offer complimentary delivery within the Los Angeles area ahead of your wedding day.
After Your Wedding – What To Do With Your Gown
After the whirlwind leading up a wedding (not to mention the party at the reception!), it’s easy for a wedding dress to end up crumpled in a corner. Don’t let this happen to your gown! It’s crucial to bring your gown in as soon as possible to prevent stains from setting deeply.
Your bridal dress needs to be cleaned after your wedding – whether you plan to preserve your gown for the future, sell it secondhand, or clean it to wear again.
Trust the experienced bridal care specialists at Door To Door Cleaners to examine your gown after a wedding and recommend the appropriate treatment. Of course, we’ll pick up the gown and deliver it after it’s been returned to stunning condition.
