Recognition for hard work is great, and last week on 7th November, American Dry Cleaning Company won the prestigious Dry-cleaner and Wet-cleaner of 2019 Award at the Laundry and Dry-cleaning Awards in Surrey.  

This annual event celebrates all that is excellent in the laundry and dry-cleaning industry, recognising companies, individuals, services and products that stand out from the crowd, achieving new levels of customer service, professionalism and technological changes to better suit the world in which we live. 

And, although we’re really proud of winning – thanks to the positive changes we’re constantly implementing, we’re not that shocked!


A fantastic evening made better for American Dry Cleaning Company

A record number of guests turned out to attend the Laundry and Dry-cleaning Awards and for the fifth consecutive year, it didn’t disappoint. 

Starting with a champagne reception where old friends and acquaintances caught up, and a fantastic meal where over £5000 was raised for Pancreatic Cancer UK, we got around to the actual ceremony where the different laundry and dry-cleaning companies waited on tenterhooks for the results.

After various categories like ‘Best Newcomer’, ‘Training and Education in the Workplace’, and ‘Best Apprentice’, it was time to learn which company would be ‘Best Dry-cleaner / Wet-cleaner’ for 2019. 

And…you’ve guessed it – American Dry Cleaning Company won!

Reasons American Dry Cleaning Company is the best dry-cleaning option

We firmly believe that we’re London’s premier dry-cleaning company. The care we take over your clothes, always getting them back to pristine condition as well as the ecologically sustainable way we run our business makes for us being first choice for our clients whether they’re on the Fulham Road, the Kings Road, Northcote Road or Gloucester Road. 

However, saying that we only dry-clean clothes is like saying a Swiss Army knife only files nails. There are many more reasons as to why American Dry Cleaning Company was voted the best dry and wet-cleaner at the Laundry and Dry-cleaning Awards. 

We offer a free pick-up and delivery service right to your doorstep where you schedule all the times most convenient for you. If you need bed linen, blankets, duvets or cushions laundered, a member of our team will come around, pick everything up and deliver it all back on the same day, all completely fresh, pressed and packed in an environmentally friendly way. 

You’ll love our Premier Service too. We’re renowned for providing the highest quality dry-cleaning service in London and this reputation is backed up by our prestigious Premier Service.

For all your best garments, whether they’re silk, suede or leather, or for items with high sentimental value like a wedding dress or your favourite ball gown, we combine the best cleaning products available on the market with the unrivalled care of our qualified pressers. We present the clothing back to you in a breathable bag with acid-free tissue paper and anti-moth treatment. In addition to this, all minor repairs will be carried out free of charge. We know that excellent customer service means that our excellent customers keep coming back to us.

In all our branches, American Dry Cleaning Company also offers an expert shoe, boot and bag service. We employ trained and knowledgeable staff who can mend soles, heels, broken zips and repair leather. 

What’s more, we don’t restrict ourselves to keeping it basic. Feel free to bring in your favourite and classiest pieces of footwear. We regularly carry out high end repairs on designer brands like Gucci, Jimmy Choo, Ferragamo, Crockett & Jones, Grenson, Oliver Sweeney, Moreschi and many more.

Is there no end to what American Dry Cleaning Company can clean?

It’s getting nearer to Ski Season and for many lucky holidaymakers, jetting off to Austria, Switzerland, Eastern France or Northern Italy is the highlight of the year. What’s that got to do with American Dry Cleaning Company? You’ll not be surprised to hear that we also specialise in ski wear.

If you bring all your suits, jackets, salopettes, gloves and other thermals in before you go, we’ll clean and press it in the way it that niche sports clothing needs to be treated; with a lot of TLC!

Lastly, just another service we offer which helps us to stand out from the rest is our key cutting service which we know our customers really value. 

At our Hampstead Heath, Islington, Marble Arch and Notting Hill branches, we employ highly-trained staff to operate state-of-the-art key cutting machinery. We can cut cylinder and mortice keys, padlock and safe keys, all while you wait. It doesn’t get much more convenient than that.

It all sounds great, but what’s wet-cleaning?

Yes, according to our award, American Dry Cleaning Company is the best dry and wet-cleaner of 2019. So what is wet cleaning?

Essentially, wet-cleaning refers to methods of professional cleaning that, in contrast to traditional dry-cleaning, avoids the use of the solvents we use in dry-cleaning.

We’re really focused on being the ‘Greener Dry-cleaner’, and on top of everything else we provide, we’re totally determined to run an eco-friendly and environmentally sustainable business. 

Because of that, we offer our customers the choice of service they want, then fulfil that request par excellence! 

At American Dry Cleaning Company, we just keep on getting better and better, and though we clean and repair more and more items to a higher and higher quality, we promise we’ll never throw the towel in!
