Our History, Your Future!

Our History, Your Future!

Karl Chehade Dry Cleaning® (KC Dry Cleaning) had its humble beginnings in North Adelaide in 1957. Firmly established in the clothing industry, we entered the dry cleaning industry to fill a gap in the quality end of the market. For over 50 years, KC Dry Cleaning has continued this tradition, and is established as Australia’s largest and environmentally friendly, premier dry cleaning establishment.

KC Dry Cleaning prepares each store’s daily orders at its modern centralised facilities. As all garments are cleaned at the same location, consistency of quality is guaranteed! Furthermore, we use all the latest technology and environmentally friendly processes and systems, ensuring that all garments are cleaned to the highest environmental standards available. Our dry cleaned garments look brighter, feel softer and have absolutely no odour.

KC Dry Cleaning stores are wholly focused on providing a comprehensive range of cleaning and hems & alterations services, expert customer advice and value added retail products.

Our Guarantee
It’s Right, It’s Ready or it’s FREE!™
