We’re a family-owned dry-cleaning business serving Ridgefield, Connecticut since 1982. Colonial has grown into a state-of-the-art facility and employs more than 20 specialists to serve you.
Dry Cleaning: Dry cleaning utilizes cleaning agents instead of water to clean fabrics that cannot be cleaned effectively using the wet cleaning process. In order to meet the standards of Colonial Cleaners and its customers, wool garments such as suits and coats, some silks and other perishable garments are cleaned using dry cleaning methods. At Colonial Cleaners, we do not use the dry cleaning solvent perchloroethylene (perc). We use environmentally friendlier products, engineered to be biodegradable alternatives to perc.
Shirt laundering: We begin with careful manual stain removal for stains that can’t be removed by machine washing. After washing, each shirt is individually finished, then inspected for missing or broken buttons that may need to be replaced. We will hang or fold & box your shirts, whichever you prefer.
Custom alterations: We offer you the pride and comfort that comes from wearing properly fitted clothing. Our staff includes full-time tailors who are experienced in the complexities of fine tailoring and the alteration of specialty garments such as wedding gowns, tuxedos, evening gowns, prom dresses, and uniforms. Please contact us to make an appointment for garment tailoring or complex alterations. For simple alterations, such as hem shortening, feel free to stop by the shop for a complimentary pinning. We want to make sure that you always receive the finest fit and proper length.
Same-day services: Dry cleaning, wet cleaning and laundered shirts: in by 10am out by 3pm on most items.
At your service: we have full-time tailors on staff Monday through Friday who make every effort to accommodate quick unscheduled repairs such as hems, zippers and buttons. If you need an emergency repair, just contact us and we’ll let you know when one of our tailors will be available.
