The Cleaning Process
Every gowns is unique and special to CocoMio bridal’s customers. Our suppliers are the best in the industry and work to the best care to ensure your items are perfectly looked after during the cleaning process.
A team member will unpack your gown on arrival. An experienced and dedicated staff member will hang the bride’s dress up and examine it in detail. He/she will point and look at specific areas requiring attention. The cleaners will contact our store and will notify me of your gowns safe arrival and to discuss any findings that they may have made.
The cleaners will apply specific hand treatment and spotting to the dress. This technique is used prior to cleaning using individual stain removal techniques. This can take several hours.
Your Gown is then cleaned using specially formulated Baptiste® Process that is suitable to clean any Wedding Gown including silk, delicate, embellished and hand painted Gowns.
The bride’s dress will then be hung and re-inspected. If the cleaners need to retreat the dress to ensure the finest levels of service then the cleaners will do so until they feel that they can go no further.
The Cleaners will finish the process by hand steaming the customer’s gown. Finally, the dress will be inspected for one final time to ensure it is perfect. The last stage is a member will pack the dress and organise delivery back to CocoMio Bridal.
Your Gown will arrive back in its gown bag as originally packed unless a post wedding where it will arrive in a box.
The dry cleaners will use the best process to get stains out of all wedding gowns. There is no guarantee that the dry cleaners can removed all stains 100% completely. We have seen our own samples cleaned and can say the process our cleaners provide is excellent.
Please note the dress will come back with a report on the cleaning in a box. This is not an acid free box so the dress needs to be hung back into the dress bag or an acid free box can be bought from the following company.
CocoMio Bridal will take responsibility of the dress while it is handed over in a gown bag, boxed in the gown bag so not removed during the process and sent off to the cleaners. The store will not take any responsibility for the cleaners and how clean the dress gets based on the report that they submit. Any faults to the dress (loose beads, tears, loose threads or rips) is the responsibility of the bride and the store and dry cleaners are not at fault for any of this damage.
