Pre-Treatment/SpottingOnce our production department receives your gown, they will then begin the treatment of stains. While no one can guarantee the removal of every stain, you can be confident that we will do everything possible to ensure your gown is returned to you in pristine condition.
CleaningWe use several methods when cleaning bridal gowns. These methods are dry cleaning, wet cleaning, hand washing or spot-cleaning. Our technicians will test the fabric as well as consult the care label to determine which method is best-suited for your gown. In the dry cleaning process, your gown is cleaned in our state-of-the-art completely computerized dry cleaning machine using virgin solvent, gentle soaps and conditioners, exceptionally gentle agitation, and low heat, low moisture throughout the process. The wet cleaning process is similar except that this process involves water rather than a solvent. Our hand washing process is exactly that: your gown is hand washed using a three-bath system. This is generally used in addition to another process for extremely soiled gowns or for gowns that are too fragile to undergo mechanical agitation. Spot cleaning is generally used for gowns that have become soiled prior to the wedding during photography sessions or alterations. Generally, this process focuses on one exact area of a gown rather than the entire gown.
RestorationThis process is used for older gowns that have yellowed over time, newer gowns that are extremely soiled or gowns which require extra hand-care procedures. This process is similar to the regular bridal gown cleaning process except that it is for gowns that require much greater care and handling. Usually, only antique gowns or gowns that have been stored incorrectly require this process. If our technician determines your gown needs this level of care, you will be contacted.
Post-Cleaning InspectionIn this process, we carefully inspect your gown to ensure that the stains have been removed to the fullest extent possible and that any invisible sugar stains have been taken care of. Often stains such as cake icing, white wine and champagne are not visible under normal lighting conditions. To solve this, we use a special uv light that makes these stains visible. After inspection, your gown is held back for further cleaning as needed or moved ahead to our finishing department for finishing.
FinishingOur finishers will hand-finish your gown, using extreme care to follow the designer's drape and lines for your gown. Once this process is completed, we will either return the gown to your preferred location for pick-up or, if you have chosen to have your gown preserved, we will then begin the preservation process.
PreservationAt tripp's fine cleaners, we use archival quality storage chests for your gown. These chests are 100% acid and lignin free - this is extremely important as acid and lignin will cause yellowing of textile material over time.
