Absolutely amazing - can't say enough about Christopher and his team. My wedding dress arrived in the mail from a boutique in NYC with a stain on the font of the skirt, and I called multiple cleaners in the Baltimore area to inquire about getting the stain removed. Most wouldn't even try, and others said they would "take a whack at it", which was not very comforting. Christopher and his team were fantastic. They made me feel super comfortable right away, got the stain out super fast (and perfectly - good as new), and Christopher even delivered my dress to my door. On a Saturday. And I live 30 miles from the shop. Best customer service ever - bar none. When it's time to have my wedding dress cleaned and pressed after my fittings, I will definitely return to Schroedl and Christopher. Best ever.

I cannot say enough good things about Schroedl Custom Cleaners! I bought two sample wedding gowns that needed brightening up before my wedding this September, Schroedl was the only company I could find with all positive reviews and after speaking with Chris, I felt very comfortable leaving my dresses with them. The quality of their work was fantastic, my dresses look brand new and are going to sparkle on my wedding day! They are also very reasonably priced, I got two dresses cleaned and pressed for what some of the other places quoted me to clean one. I would recommend their services to anyone who needs their wedding dress cleaned.

I highly recommend that every bride in not only the Baltimore but DC METRO AREA get their wedding gown cleaned by Christopher. I live in DC and was searching for a place to get my gown cleaned before my wedding/getting alterations. All the places I contacted in DC were snobby and overpriced. They seemed like they didn't really care about taking care of your dress. So I did a quick search on Weddingwire, read the reviews about Christopher at Schroedl Cleaners and decided to try him out. From day one, Christopher was attentive, responsive, and provided TOP NOTCH quality service. I have an Enzoani lace gown and Christopher and his team worked tirelessly on my gown to make sure it looked perfect. They provided updates along the way and pictures. (As a side note- my dress was extremely difficult to clean because a friend of mine wore it at her wedding in Napa Valley so parts of the dress were stained and the bottom was dirty. Those stains had been sitting in the dress for about a year). Christopher's team did a FANTASTIC job at cleaning the dress and I am so excited to wear it on my wedding day. I really can't thank him enough. In this stressful wedding planning process, he was one of the easiest, friendliest, and most trustworthy vendors I have worked with thus far. EVERY BRIDE IN DC- Go to Christopher. You will be so happy you did!

From the moment I talked to Christopher, I instantly felt at ease and knew I could trust Schroedl Cleaners to clean my gown. I wore my mother's wedding gown, which is about 30 years old. It needed to be clean but I was so nervous and afraid that it was going to be damaged. I knew I needed to find an expert in vintage gowns. I found this in Schroedl Cleaners. Christopher was extremely professional and I was so impressed by the wonderful cleaning job they did.

I had a wonderful experience working with Schroedl Custom Cleaners/DryCleanBaltimore. Chris was super responsive from the first introduction. We found a convenient time and he came to me to pick up my dress. He answered all my questions about the process and sent before and after pictures. He was super responsive to emails and very flexible with a drop off time. They also made sure that I had a chance to see my gown again before it was preserved. I felt confident that my dress was handled with care and not sent off to somewhere land to be cleaned and preserved. I also felt that their pricing was fair and that I got a great value and customer experience. I would highly recommend DryCleanBaltimore to other Baltimore area brides!

WOW! I shopped around and compared prices, reviews...before putting my daughter's very special but now muddy and grass stained wedding gown into someone else's hands. I called and spoke with SCHROEDL CUSTOM CLEANERS and was immediately impressed with their customer service, policies and pricing. We became more impressed once we were contacted by Christopher Crawmer who would be in charge of giving us an estimate and picking up the dress. The entire process was easy. The dress is clean and preserved, in fact it looks brand new. He was extremely professional and very flexible in coordinating the pick up and delivery of the dress. The price was very competitive. We could not be happier!

Schroedl was not my first call to get my wife's wedding dress restored and preserved. The first place I called was very short with me and offered little detail on their process with a large price tag to boot. So, I put off the process thinking that it might not be worth the cost. But, after finding some great reviews for Schrodel, I gave them a call and spoke with Chris. He was fantastic in explaining their process in detail, giving me a price range and even offering to come pick it up. Upon seeing the stained 3-year-old dress, he still came in a price toward the low end of his estimate range and we agreed upon the work. From there, he was adapt at keeping me updated in the process with pictures of how things were going. Finally, he delivered the dress right to my work when it was finished and it looked fantastic! Add in that they are a member of the Association of Wedding Gown Specialists, where all members work together if any discoloration or fading is to occur, and this was a fantastic experience!

After searching for someplace to clean and preserve my daughter's wedding gown I came across Schroedl and I'm glad I did. Chris promptly returned my call, explained pricing, process, etc and set an appt. to pick up the dress from my home. The pick up and delivery service they offer at no additional charge is a great value. He even had the courtesy to call and say he was running 15 late due to traffic issues. The dress was delivered back to me about a week later (ahead of schedule) and looked great via the "after" pictures. The one stain on the dress was clearly gown and the gown boxed and preserved wonderfully. No surprises on the pricing. Overall a great experience and I highly recommend trusting your gown to them.

Schroedl Custom Cleaners were outstanding in the cleaning of my daughter's wedding gown. The train of the dress was very soiled and there was a red wine stain on the back of the dress. Chris was very accommodating and professional. The day I called the store he came to my house to pick up the gown and my dress. Two weeks later he delivered the dresses to my home at no extra charge. I was very happy with my experience with Schroedl Custom Cleaners.

Chris from Schroedl Cleaners was the epitome of professionalism and timeliness with the dry-cleaning and preservation of my wedding gown. Literally door-to-door service, making the ease of the last wedding task the best experience... he picked up and dropped off around my time schedule, made sure I was satisfied with the look of the dress by way of an email and photo before it was packaged up, and kept in regular contact with me about the return date, which was prompt. I also chose the cleaners knowing that they were part of the Association of Wedding Gown Specialists, which is an important factor for me in choosing a cleaner.

I highly recommend the unique and customized, personal service that Schroedl, and Chris, has provided to my and my wonderful dress. After such a lovely day, you want your dress preserved so that you can possibly pull it out of storage one day and have it look the same as the day you wore it. I'm so happy with the results, I couldn't recommend high enough!

Chris with Schroedl Cleaners was absolutely wonderful to work with! Not only was he extremely responsive to all of my questions about the wedding dress cleaning and preservation process, but he went above and beyond to accommodate my schedule with pick-up and drop-off. He traveled all the way from Westminster to my house in Baltimore City to pick up my dress, took numerous pictures and kept me updated throughout the process, and then delivered my dress to me in less than two weeks! I wasn't only happy with the quality of their cleaning service, but also with the value. I priced out several stores for my wedding dress cleaning and preservation, and Schroedl Cleaners came back well below the rest! I had a wonderful experience and would recommend them to anyone looking for someone to take wonderful care of their wedding dress!

After my 12/1/12 wedding, my wedding dress hung in my closet for months. The bottom of my dress (a large, ballgown-style Maggie Sottero) was blackened from dragging on the ground. I searched online for cleaners in my area that would be able to sufficiently clean my dress, and preserve it in a way that it would not yellow over time, and I found Schroedl Custom Cleaners. When I called and they directed me to Chris. I was impressed by his professionalism, as well as his willingness to come pick up my dress. The price point was very reasonable compared to other cleaners in the area , and I had increased confidence due to their "Association of Wedding Gown Specialists" guarantee. I signed the contract with Chris in my home and he took my dress with him. He kept me posted, and my dress was complete within 14 days. I opted to come to the shop and take a look prior to packaging. Tenisha, the employee responsible for cleaning the dress, did a fantastic job! I couldn't believe how she was able to get out all of the black dirt from the bottom of the dress, especially around the intricate lace detail. Chris delivered my dress to me in a preservation window box (positioned nicely so people can see the top of the dress) and I submitted payment over the phone. The whole process was easy and professional. I would highly recommend this vendor for wedding dress cleaning.

One of our customers (of PIZAZZ Wedding Boutique) brought her dress to us and I thought there was no way this was going to get completely clean. The bride received a spray tan sometime before her wedding and it was all over the inside of the dress. Their venue had a brick floor so her hem was filthy dirty. To top that off beautiful white feathers adorned her wedding gown.

Everything came out beautifully after cleaning, all the feathers were still there and it was packaged more than expected. They pick up and deliver back to the store you purchased from or they will go directly to your home to meet you, take your dress and deliver back to you or your place of business/work.

Christopher was very friendly and explained everything to me. He made sure everything was more than expected.

The comments and reviews on this place do not lie. I researched high and low for a reputable cleaners that specialized in wedding dress cleanings and one that didnt break the bank. This place is amazing and truly top notch customer service. Chris was such a breath of fresh air to deal with. He sent pictures throughout the cleaning process, and even delivered my dress back to me (and I do not live in Baltimore, MD). WOW! I waited a long time (too long) to get my dress cleaned. I was married in New Orleans and paraded through the streets after my wedding (oh so fun!). So you can only imagine the amount of dirt at the bottom of my SILK dress. The before and after pictures are amazing. I would 100% recommend this place to any bride. Thanks again for great service!

I waited over 3 years after my wedding to get my wedding dress cleaned and preserved because I was so scared something would happen to my dress. I finally bit the bullet and called up Schroedl. I spoke with Chris, who was very friendly, professional, and reassuring. He offered to come pick my dress up from my house, but I preferred to deliver it myself which he was fine with. He emailed me "before" photos of my dress and a scanned copy of the contract. I didn't have to pay a penny up front. He told me it could take up to 2 weeks to clean the dress but 4 days later he emailed me saying it was done, with "after" photos. I had the option to go see the dress in person before it was preserved but I didn't feel like I needed to since I had the photos. A day later the dress was preserved and boxed up, and I went to pick it up (he offered to deliver it but I lived so close I didn't feel the need to have it delivered). Chris told me there was one stain on the bottom that had set in since I had waited so long to get the dress cleaned, but that was my fault. Overall I am very happy with my choice, and wish I hadn't waited so long to have my dress cleaned. The price was fair I thought, $250. There seemed to be about 10-15 other dresses being processed at the same time as mine, so I think they do a lot of wedding dresses. I felt I could trust Chris, and I'm glad I did. Highly recommended.

Chris at Schroedl was very easy to work with. He was able to come pick-up and deliver my dress, to make it more convenient for me and my work schedule. I was also happy that the company was local and that my dress would not be shipped anywhere for cleaning or preservation. I know that some other companies do this. Schroedl does everything in house, so it's much more secure.

The presentation of my gown is excellent. My dress was 2 pieces, so a bit more complicated then normal, and they did an excellent job. The cleaning was great! Chris sent me photos of the dress before it was packed and it looked pristine! I had gotten a spray tan before my wedding and it left stains on the inside of my dress. They were able to get all of that out, along with all of the other normal marks that end up on your dress by the end of the night.

We did have one minor hiccup, when the beaded belt that I wore with my dress was mistakenly left out of the preservation box (I had asked that it also be placed in the box). Chris caught the mistake and rectified it immediately. Overall, I was very happy with the outcome and the service I received.

I found Chris and Schroedl Custom Cleaners to be very good and exactly up to par with all the other reviews that I had read on the website prior to calling them about having my wedding gown cleaned and preserved. Chris was extremely professional, keeping me informed of how the cleaning/preserving process works, how long it would take and what to expect in regards to the service received and pricing. My dress came back exactly as he explained to me. As an added bonus to me, I work in the Baltimore area and have very limited freetime due to my job to run errands. Chris was able to come to my place of work to pick up AND drop off the wedding dress. I would highly recommend and trust them to do work with any of my fine clothing. I only gave them 4 stars for value due to the fact it seemed a little high to get the cleaning that I had to have done to my dress when it wasn't really that dirty in the first place, but I didn't have any idea of what cleaning and preserving a dress would cost. (It cost me $275 for a very lightly soiled dress).
