Childress Professional Dry Cleaning, Inc
They cleaned and preserved my gown so it will last forever!
They did a really good job with my gown. It was ready the next day and it was well taken care of. The service was very proffesional. They were great!
Childress steamed my dress 2 days before the wedding (and got it done in 3 hours so I didn't have to leave it overnight!), then cleaned and preserved my gown afterward. It was a LOT cheaper than other places were quoting, and it looked GREAT. (My dress was 8-ply silk dupioni, so it had to be given LOTS of steam and LOTS of cleaning.)
No value can be placed on your bridal gown. It is a reminder of that very special moment in time - as well as a potential heirloom to pass on to your own daughter one day. To preserve those memories, you need an expert in fabric care and preservation.

Wedding gowns can represent unusual challenges from a cleaning perspective. The potential combination of fibers and materials - both natural and synthetic - as well as an assortment of decorative details, creates a challenge which requires the experience and judgement of an experienced gown professional. We pay strict attention to the manufacturer guidelines for each gown - and we test every element of the gown (beading, stitching, etc) to ensure viability of the appropriate cleaning agents. Our process utilizes detergents and solvents that are appropriate for these types of garments so that they will be thoroughly cleaned, but will not degrade the fibers over time. Each gown is individually hand cleaned and pressed - and personally inspected by a single Master Dry Cleaner throughout the entire process.
