Our History. Your Future!

Our History. Your Future!

Karl Chehade Dry Cleaning® (KCDC) 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, KCDC has continued this tradition, and is established as Australia’s largest, premier dry-cleaning establishment.

KCDC performs each store’s daily orders at its modern centralised facility. 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. The garments look brighter, feel softer and have absolutely no odour.

KCDC stores are wholly focused on providing a comprehensive range of cleaning services, expert customer advice and value added retail products. We can dedicate our operational hours to this end, as all cleaning is performed off-site.
