Same day, on–site dry cleaning
Everything you'd expect from a dry cleaner:
Forgot to get your suit cleaned before the big day, and now it's the weekend and you're in a panic?
Give us a call or drop in and ask for same–day service. It's available up to 2pm on weekdays and 10am on Saturdays.
Stafford Dry Cleaner is committed to ensuring that the detrimental effects of our business on the environment are minimised through:
When someone phones and asks "How much to clean a wedding dress?", the answer will always be "We have to see the dress to quote". So if you want to shop around for prices, best to find a few dry cleaners you want to visit, then set aside some time to visit them personally with the dress so that they can give you a firm quote. It will help to phone ahead so that they can make sure their wedding dress specialist is available when you visit, otherwise you may be asked to leave the dress until they have time to prepare the quote.
Doing a quote shouldn't take longer than 10 to 20 minutes, the cost depends on a number of criteria such as:
Things like red dust or mud can be particularly tricky as they contain minerals that dye the dress—ochre has been used by many cultures for millennia because it's a pretty persistent dye. That hasn't changed! Most food and wine stains can be removed by spotting, however the delicate nature of most dresses means lots of manual labour to remove them. It's not a matter of just tossing it in a machine and magic happens! Dry cleaners would love to have such a contraption, but they just don't exist.
The last piece of advice is that the cost of the dress is not an indicator of the cost of cleaning. Cleaning takes time, effort and skill, as does subsequent finishing and presentation. Those factors are affected by the design, materials and quality of the dress, not how much you paid.
We're in the Rode Rd Shopping Centre, on the corner of Rode and Appleby Roads with parking at the door.
We aren't a "dry shop" that sends everything out to a factory, we clean your garments and soft furnishings on site. So the people you talk to in the shop are the very same people who clean and press your garments.
Because all work is done on–site, we can offer a same day service*, 6 days per week for most standard items. Of course some items can't be cleaned in a day, but we'll do our very best where we can.
Same–day service must be requested when dropping items off as not all items can be cleaned in a day and there are time limits.
* For items dropped off before:
Some items can't be cleaned in a day, e.g. wedding dresses, doonas and other items that need specialty cleaning or drying techniques.
Drop into the shop, right next to Coles, with easy access from both Rode and Appleby Roads.
