Draperies are fabric- and textile-based wall and window coverings. Draperies are generally decorative fabrics and are incorporated into home or office decor. Experts recommend cleaning drapes every six months to a year.

Typical costs:

  • Dry cleaning businesses that offer cleaning of draperies typically charge by the foot or by the pleat. Typically dry cleaners charge $1-$5 per foot or per pleat. Average drapery panels are 4'-10' wide; pleated drapes generally have 15-30 pleats. An average 8' wide drapery would cost $8-$40 to clean; an average 20-pleat drapery would cost $20-$100 to clean. For example, Clean 'N' Press[1] , with locations across Minnesota, charges $1-$2 per foot or pleat for cleaning drapes.
  • Professional cleaning companies offer on-site residential and commercial drapery cleaning. Typical drapery cleaning costs, also calculated by the foot or by the pleat, are between $2 and $7. Angelo's Carpet Cleaning[2] , with locations in Pennsylvania and Delaware, charges $2-$4 per foot for drapery cleaning, with a minimum charge of $150. Coit[3] , a national cleaning company, starts at $6 per foot for commercial drapery cleaning.
