KEN DRY CLEANERS is well-known in Cape Town as the wedding dress and ball gown cleaning specialist. Your wedding day is undoubtedly one of the most special moments in your life, and we are privileged to be of service in the cleaning and caring of your exquisite wedding dress.
We specialise in the cleaning and finishing of wedding dresses including antique, contemporary and designer collections. Our bridal service also includes the cleaning of bridesmaid and matric dance dresses and christening gowns.
KEN DRY CLEANERS’ professional hand-cleaning system is of a high standard to cater for the wide variety of elegant fabrics and delicate trims found on most wedding dresses today. We also clean wedding dresses and ball gowns with specific care labels such as: Specialist Dry Clean and Spot Clean Only.
In addition, we offer an on-the-premises tailoring service if required for: reinforcement of seams, shortening of hems and securing any loose beads/trims where needed.
Our expertise in cleaning a wide range of bridal gowns on a weekly basis has allowed us to become the bridal wear cleaning expert in our field. As a result, we have a thorough understanding of how the cleaning solvent reacts with different types of fabric, beading, sequins and delicate trimmings.
When a wedding dress is handed to us for cleaning, it undergoes a detailed pre-cleaning examination to identify any fabric tears, missing/loose beads, stains and soiled marks. We also ask you to supply us with as much information about the condition of the wedding dress to allow us to ensure that the stains/soiled marks are treated correctly. Equally important is how long the stains have been on the dress and whether any clear beverages such as champagne was spilled on it, etc.
Once the pre-cleaning examination is completed, our skilled team ensures that your wedding dress is then treated for the identified stains and cleaned with the gentlest process available in the industry. Your beautifully cleaned wedding dress receives a final inspection and is then hand-pressed, layer by layer by our master pressers.
