    Expertise and quality

    I'm planning to wear a dress that had been handed down to me for my wedding, and Drycleaning by Dave did a fantastic job restoring it to like-new condition. The service was completed faster than expected. Communication with members of the team was reliable.

    Don't take the risk

    We've been taking our dry cleaning there for nearly 20 years but we've recently stopped doing business with them after they refused to take any responsibility for damaging my wife's expensive jacket with the dry cleaning solvent they used. If they refuse to take responsibility for damaging a $500 jacket, imagine what they would do after damaging a $1000+ wedding dress...

    I am shocked that you would put this review on here after discussing with you personally that when you bring in an item with damages on the trim of a jacket we cant help by adding paint to a tarnished garment. We went over and above to try and explain to you that when a garment is already damaged, cleaning it may cause further damage. Dave has been cleaning and preserving Wedding Gowns for more than 40 years and we have an excellent reputation in the Gown industry. I really hope that anyone reading your review will understand and consider the source. You in your own words state that you have been using our services for many years and have never had an issue prior. I really wish you would understand that some things are not in our control and yet we still tried to make the best of the situation by trying to communicate and inform you that when trim is peeling and damaged from wear and tear that drycleaning it will only increase the chances of more peeling. Your wife's jacket prior to cleaning had lost more then 40% of the paint on her buckles and cuffs. This was not a result of anything we could cause or prevent.
    I apologize that we could not make you happy after providing you with years of great service and quality.
