The Kimmel Corporation is a proud member of the Association of Wedding Gown Specials. Members of the Association of Wedding Gown Specialists are trained to use the safest, most effective methods ever developed for preservation and restoration of all heirloom fabrics such as family gowns, linens, quilts, and doll clothes. A blind test of four nationally-known gown preservation services conducted by National Bridal Service proved our MuseumCare preservation was the cleanest, provided the safest packageing environment, and offered the most comprehensive guarantee. You can trust us to give your special gown the individual care and attention it deserves.
Our Thoroughness and Attention to Detail Guarantee Great Results...

Free Evaluation: We will gladly give you a free consultation and estimate for the care of any fabric, new or old.

Hand-cleaning: We hand treat and clean each gown individually- never in combination with other dresses. We take every precaution to protect delicate beads, embroidery, and lace during the cleaning process.

Anti-Sugar Stain Treatment: Spills containing sugar, salt, and acid often dry clear and cannot be seen. These latent stains do not dissolve during ordinary dry cleaning and turn an ugly brown over time. Our unique anti-sugar stain treatment, featured in Modern Bride and Bride's, ensures that all sugar, salt, and acid- seen or unseen- is removed.

Personal Insection Available: We encourage you to inspect your gown before our MuseumCare preservation is completed.

Environmentally Pure, Lasting Protection: Vacuum or plastic seals and other acidic materials damage gowns. Ordinary boxes and tissuse will leave dark brown streaks on the fabric causing a "burn" looking mark wherever it touches the box. We use a trademarked MuseumCare wedding chest that is completely acid free, not just pH neutral, and acid-free tissue to protect your gown.

International Guarantee: Members of the Association of Wedding Gown Specialists are represented in more than 500 cities around the world. Improper handling of the gown without the supervision of a Wedding Gown Specialist may cause the damage and compromise the preservation of your gown. Read less

My mother's wedding gown was beautifully restored by Kimmel Corp. The results were better than I had thought possible. It is over 60 years old and is a treasured family heirloom. Thank you so much.

As mother of the bride, I was very satisfied with the personal service we received at Kimme'ls. In regards to comparison with other cleaners/restorators, because Kimmel's was recommended to us by the seamstress who altered my mother's 62-year-old wedding dress, we did not take the dress to any other cleaners for their opinion/estimate.

I have known about the Kimmel Corp. reputation for a long time. They have been known to be reasonably priced and provide a high quality of service. When it came to my wedding dress, I was still nervous about how it would turn out. Wasted thoughts, because they did a fabulous job!

I cannot say enough about the service that I received at Kimmel Cleaners. I have decided to wear my Mother's wedding gown for my wedding on 9-9-11. The dress had yellowed significantly over the past 38 years and there were several stains so I searched high and low looking for a restoration specialist that I could trust this gown with. I live in Chicago so one would think that I would be able to find a reliable cleaner there...but I couldn't. So on a trip back to Cleveland I stopped by Kimmel Cleaners to drop off my Mom's gown. First of all, customer service was amazing and they all seemed to be just as excited about the gown as I was. Secondly, the time frame to have the dress restored was just over a week. And lastly, my Mom's dress/my dress turned out absolutely perfect!!!! I highly recommend Kimmel Cleaners for gown restoration!!!!!

My wedding dress and shoes were covered with mud, and they told me it wouldn't be a problem. I had my doubts, but when I saw the dress it looked like the day I bought it. They did a great job with my shoes, and I know they can be very challenging to clean. Kimmel's even let my grandmother-in-law come in to see how it was bustled and packaged. I was very happy with my experience with Kimmel's. Emily

Thank you Emily for your trust in us. Yes the shoes were a challenge. You can thank Mr. Kimmel personally for that one, as he took charge of cleaning those items himself. It was a pleasure to work with you.

I had my daughter-in-law's wedding gown restored and preserved for a Christmas gift 3 years after their wedding. Since it had been so long and the dress was so soiled we were not sure how it would turn out, but it turned out better than I could have expected! They were able to get out all the stains and repaired the intricate beading. My daughter-in-law cried when she saw it!
