The Process

Scobies are a premium Wedding Dress Cleaning company company who have a specialist team dedicated to the cleaning, care and restoration of one of your most cherished items. We treat all Gowns as unique, and each dress is individually checked and cleaned according to it's own style, design, material components and particular marks and stains.

The Scobies Wedding Dress Cleaning Approach:

Arrival
Upon arrival, your Gown is unpacked, hung and examined by one of our expert and dedicated team for specific areas requiring attention. We will then contact you to notify you of your Gowns safe arrival and to discuss any findings that we may have made.

Hand Spotting
Specific hand treatment and spotting prior to cleaning using individual stain removal techniques. This can take several hours.

Cleaning
Your Gown is then cleaned using our environmentally friendly products that are suitable to clean any Wedding Gown including silk, delicate, embellished and hand painted Gowns. We cater for all Gowns including those labelled: Specialist Dry Clean, Spot Clean, 'do not dry clean', and even those that do not carry a cleaning label.

Re-inspection
Your Gown will then be hung and re-inspected. If we need to retreat the dress to ensure the finest levels of service then we will do so until we feel that we can go no further.

Hand Finishing
Your Gown will then be hand-steamed, finished and inspected for one final time before being packed.

Packaging
Your Gown will then be packed as per your instructions. No matter which Service is required your Gown will be packed with Special acid free tissue to provide an ideal environment for long term storage and to help minimise creasing for 'Pre-Wedding' Gowns. Whilst being packed your Gown is also checked to provide the highest levels of Service.

Delivery
Before returning your Gown we will contact you to arrange a convenient delivery date and confirm the delivery address (this can be changed at this point if required). We do not return a Gown unless we have arranged a day with you as our Courier does require a signature.
