why preserve your dress?

Precious garments deserve special attention. Sheldon offers the best of care by helping you preserve your most treasured mementos for years to come. We provide cleaning options for wedding gowns and formal wear along with wedding gown preservation.

Prevent irreversible fabric damage for the future

When you choose Sheldon Cleaners to preserve your wedding dress, you can rest assured that your gown is in good hands. From the stains and spills you might have made on your special day to the potential damage done in the future, our cleaning and preservation process guarantees a safe and satisfactory result. Storing your dress by yourself runs the risk of it being damaged by water or moisture from the garment bag, by your kids or pets if they get ahold of it, or by yellowing naturally.

Allow your loved ones the opportunity to wear your gown

If you have a daughter or someone that know and love, the day may come when they have the opportunity to wear your wedding dress. When that time arrives, even if they choose to invest in their own dress, how wonderful would it be to at least offer your own? It would be devastating to have to tell them no because your dress was no longer in prime condition. Simply having the option down the road can make all the difference in the world.

a professional cleaning will increase its value

If you end up deciding to sell your wedding dress, you wouldn’t be the only one. Between the expense you have put into it, not wearing it again yourself, and not passing it down if you are not able to, there are plenty of reasons to try and get something back for your dress. If you want to make some of your money back by selling your dress after your wedding, proper cleaning and preservation will offer you the best value.

Create a tangible memory of your wedding day

Your wedding day is meant to be one of the happiest days of your life—if not the happiest. From this day though, how much of it can you actually look back on and remember? Sure, you’ll have the photos and personal memories, but how much will be tangible? Allowing us to clean and preserve your dress will not only help maintain the beauty of your dress but will give you an elegant way to present it as well.

Our preservation sealed packaging allows you to view the gown and veil at anytime

you wish without compromising the seal - protecting the gown from mold, insect

damage, oxidation and mildew. This sealed box is placed inside of an outer shell,

to give the gown extra protection for decades to come.

  • Is there an extra charge for the service or a monthly fee?
    There are no hidden fees or extra charges for our pickup and delivery service; you simply pay for the cleaning charge of each garment.
  • Is there a minimum unit count in an order?
    No, there is no minimum unit requirement. Our service was designed to be used frequently, so smaller orders are most common. Once you get in the habit of having orders picked up every week, you'll love having a closet that's always full of clean clothes!
  • Can you pickup or drop off my cleaning if I am not home?
    Of course! Just like any other order, simply leave it on your front step and we will grab it. We also provide you with a free hook to hang on your door to ensure your clean clothes are delivered in the same, protected location every time.
  • What if I don't need dry cleaning or wash and fold twice a week?
    Not a problem! We have set up this service to be used at your convenience, so you only use us when you need us. Once you are signed up for the service, you can log in to your personal account on our website to schedule a pick up or drop off.
  • What services do you offer through pickup and delivery?
    If it's a service we offer in-store, it's a service we offer through pickup and delivery. Whether you need dry cleaning, bedding, laundry, or even a wedding dress, we will be more than happy to pick it up.
  • Can you do alterations and repairs?
    Yes, we do offer alterations and repairs. Just write down the alteration and/or repairs you want done and attach it to the garment before you put it in your bag. To see our list of available options, visit our "Tailoring and Alterations" page.
  • What if it rains?
    We deliver your clothes in protective covers, so rainy days are rarely a problem. That being said, we prefer to hang your clothes under an overhang of sorts, so if you do not have one, we can hold your items until the next delievery day. If the weather is severe, we will hold your order until your next scheduled delivery day. You can also choose an alternative delivery spot such as a garage or back porch where we can deliver in inclement weather.
  • How do I pay?
    You will provide us with your credit card information and we will bill you automatically.
  • My credit card has expired or has changed, how do I change the card on file?"
    You can update your credit card information at any time by logging in to your account.
  • I dont know my account log in information, how do I find it?"
