“You can have anything you want in life if you dress for it.” Edith Head, Costume Designer and 8-time Academy Award winner for Best Costume Design
How you dress says a lot about who you are. Your dress can make or break a job interview; dictate how you feel about yourself on any given day; give you confidence; boost your spirits.
But we’re not talking fashion, or even style, here. Not everyone can afford designer duds, and not everyone has great style. What everyone can do is look like they care about themselves: by presenting themselves in clothing that is at the very least neat, tidy, clean. We’re talking about the level of care you put into your clothing and making sure it’s looking its best for your circumstances. In terms of clothing, this says more about your beliefs and values than any designer outfit ever could.
Which is why your 9-5 business wear in particular needs to be carefully cared for and cleaned. And, yes, then there are those couture, high-end and special occasion items – dresses, suits, tuxedos, wedding gowns, dress shirts etc. – that require high-end, special attention. Our cleaning professionals are experienced in handling all kinds of clothing items, in every kind of fabric, and every kind of texture, trim and finish, no matter now delicate.
Even everyday clothing can last longer with special care. Perfume, deodorant, perspiration and salt stains can take their toll on your clothing. What’s more, during normal, everyday wear, clothes are also exposed to air pollution and grit, which weakens the fibres of your garments.
At Sun King cleaners we care about them all: whether you bring us your everyday duds, you’re dressed to impress work suits and dresses, or your close-to-the-heart wedding dress, we are committed to looking after them as if they were our own. We will keep you looking your best whether at work, at play, or on the biggest day of your life.
Our Cleaning Process
We begin our cleaning process by carefully inspecting and assessing each garment you entrust us with to determine the most appropriate cleaning materials and techniques for each individual item. This includes checking for stains that will need removing as well as any minor repairs that will need to be made – every loose button, every slipped stitch is spotted, nothing escapes our notice!
You can review specific cleaning processes as outlined alongside each of our item services listed below. In general though, you can rest assured that we are 100% committed to:
- Attention to detail from start to finish.
- Hand pressing/Hand finishing all garments.
- Careful individual packaging of finished garments in acid free paper and biodegradable poly bags to preserve the quality of work performed.
When you get your clothing items cleaned by Sun King, you will notice the difference. The level of care and attention to detail we instill in every single garment we care for is unsurpassed in the industry.
Sun King Cleaning Services
At Sun King we clean what most people cannot! Bring us your everyday wear, your sports kit, your play gear, your special occasion wear, your work wear. Dresses, suits, tuxedos, wedding gowns, dress shirts, golf shorts, even your UGGs. Our cleaning professionals are experienced in handling all kinds of clothing items, in every kind of fabric, and every kind of texture, trim and finish, no matter now delicate.
We also recognize that every single garment we clean is unique and can assure you that we treat, clean and repair each and every item on its own merits, issues and specific needs. We also guarantee that we never damage garments.
Our cleaning services include (but are not limited to):
Wedding Gowns & Formal Apparel: Inspected, cleaned individually and hand pressed to perfection.
Blazers, Suits & Tuxedos: Always hand pressed to avoid excessive shine from over pressing by machine. We also recognize that we have 3D bodies, and the clothing we are cleaning and pressing needs to take that into account. With this in mind, we know that every garment needs to be contoured as it was designed, which is why we use padded hangers and stuff the sleeves with acid free tissue to maintain the shape of the garment.
Evening Gowns, Cocktail Dresses & Gala Wear: Inspected, cleaned individually and hand pressed to perfection.
Blouses & Camisoles: Always hand pressed to avoid excessive shine from over pressing by machine. Garment is contoured during cleaning and pressing as it was designed to account for the human form. This includes using padded hangers to prevent hanger marks on shoulders.
Dress Shirts: After the collars stays are removed, the cuff and collars are scrubbed, then bathed in soft water mixed with our specialized enzyme based soap. After thorough cleansing, the dress shirt is then hand finished, and buttons are inspected and replaced where needed. New collar stays are inserted and a ‘papillon’ (butterfly) collar support is used to ensure that the shirts collar does not get crushed. Your dress shirt is then hung on an extra wide hanger to prevent hanger marks on the shoulders of the shirt.
Golf Shirts & T-shirts: Individually cleaned, then hand finished.
Pants & Shorts: Individually cleaned, then hand finished. When packaging we use a high quality hanger that helps prevent wrinkles on the mid leg along with a pant clip to ensure that pants do not slip off the hanger.
Dresses & Skirts: Individually cleaned, hand finished and then reshaped to the garment’s design. Dresses are packaged in tissue and on a special hanger to keep the shape of the garment. Skirts are hung on a special hanger that does not require us to use safety pins on the skirt in our bid to never damage a single garment.
Sweaters, including specialty cashmere items etc: Gently cleansed after stain treatment. Reblocked to shape and carefully de-linted by hand. Folded with a sheet of acid free tissue to prevent setting of hard creases and then on a rounded hanger to avoid stretching and shoulder marks. A ribbon is then tied around the sweater to avoid the sweater from falling off the hanger.
Finally, we use a special resealable sweater bag which protects the garment for long term storage.
Raincoats: Gently cleansed after stain treatment. Hand finished to prevent seams from showing through. Individually packaged using a sturdy hanger in a breathable bag for long term storage.
Scarves, Gloves, Toques, Baseball Caps: Hermes, Louis Vuitton, Chanel… we clean everything from standard ski gear to Salvatore Ferragamo gloves.
Specialty Items – Beads, lace, sequins, satins and silks: Individually cleaned by hand and then hand pressed
Specialty Items – Leather, suede, fur, sheepskin rugs, rubber, vinyl and latex: We can clean what most cannot!
