You (renter) understands that any additional payment for damages dry cleaning is assessed to pay a cleaning or repair fee if the dress is returned ruined, dirty, stained, ripped or with an odour and that it may not fully cover the cost so additional charges will be needed.
All repair and damages will be invoiced to you directly for further monies, if deemed necessary. Failure to make these payments will lead to our debt collection agents taking over and their fees accumulated paid by you (renter).
