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... Read More 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.

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... Read More 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!

This was the best decision we ever made and worth every dime spent. After reading reviews of some of the nightmares experienced by other brides, my daughter and I decided to go with a very reputable cleaners. So we contacted Dry Clean Baltimore to do the job. We had a number... Read More of concerns about the process. The dress was covered with stones and embellishments from the sweetheart neckline, front and back, to the bottom flare out with tiny silk buttons down the back. We had sparklers at the end of the wedding, so the dress had been dragged on the concrete driveway outside the hotel and people had stepped on it multiple times. Added to that was the fact that because the dress was so dirty, my daughter wouldn't bring it to me until a year and a half after the wedding. When Ms. Tenisha Tutt came to my home and saw the condition of the dress, she didn't promise perfection, but said they would do absolutely everything they could to get the dress cleaned. When she called to say the dress was ready, because we were so doubtful, we asked if we could see it before it was packed and preserved. We were not expecting a miracle, but a miracle was what we got! The dress was cleaned and looked like new! My daughter was in tears when she saw it. AMAZING was all I could say. Everyone at Dry Clean Baltimore was extremely kind no matter who we talked to in person or on the telephone. Once the dress was preserved, Ms. Tutt arranged to personally deliver it to my home. She came and reminded me once again of the importance of proper storage. If you are looking for a top rated, professional cleaners to care for your important items, I highly recommend Dry Clean Baltimore. In addition, Ms. Tenshia Tutt deserves a 5-Star rating all by herself for her kindness, understanding, and professionalism. She took the worry and nervousness away from us about this dress. I didn't think anyone could do it, but they did the impossible.

I purchased my dress at a local and reputable bridal shop who referred me to this company to have my dress cleaned. I experienced the absolute worst customer service from Tenisha who handles the bridal gowns at this cleaners. I dropped my dress off at the bridal shop on 8/2/17.... Read More Dry clean Baltimore picked the dress up the very next day. By 8/7/17 the following week, I never received a call or email on the status of my dress. I called the cleaners and spoke with Kris who used to handle the dresses and she provided me with Tenisha's contact information. I emailed Tenisha on 8/8/17 and received an emailed response back on 8/9/17 stating that my wedding dress would cost $550 to clean and preserve. I emailed Tenisha back asking her to please call me to clarify the services being provided. When Tenisha called she described my dress as being "black at the bottom". I stated to her that I don't remember my dress being "black" at the bottom, only slight dirt that I saw unless there's something there that I'm unaware of and that I'd like to come into the shop to discuss the preservation process and gain a clearer understanding of what she saw as 'black'. Well upon my arrival to the shop, Tenisha tells me that she had a conversation with the owner and told him that I was concerned that my dress was dirtied during transport from the bridal shop to the cleaners and the owner stated that he did not want to take the liability of cleaning my dress without seeing it. I expressed to Tenisha that clearly she misconstrued my words and that's not what I was insinuating. I immediately informed the bridal shop who was very accommodating and had me bring the dress immediately over to the shop where they made arrangements for another steller company to clean my dress. I left the owner a voice message and he did call me back , unfortunately my dress had already been handed off to the bridal shop and due to the poor customer service I wouldn't have been willing to return to get my dress cleaned there, this company just lost out on $550 due to one employee's poor customer service. The price quoted to clean my dress that wasn't heavily soiled was absurd! What a nightmare!

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... Read More 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.
