Pella® Technology Helps with Allergen Reduction in Your Home Our exclusive between-the-glass technology doesn’t only allow low-maintenance cleaning, it also sparks allergen reduction and brings healthier air inside your Minneapolis home. Based on statistics furnished by WebMD.com, allergies impacts 1 out of 5 people in the U.S., and allergies are ranked 5th among the primary chronic diseases. The annual cost that dealing with allergies adds to the U.S. health care system is approaching $8 billion. Nearly 4 million workdays are lost as a result of allergies, such as hay fever. Statistics suggest that over 90% of our time is spent indoors. Considering the fact that we are a nation of animal lovers (over 62% of households include a dog or cat), indoor pollution surpasses outdoor pollution by as much as 100 times, depending upon whether the occupant smokes. Typical roomside blinds accumulate 10 times more of certain airborne allergens than Designer Series® windows with between-the-glass blinds1. Our between-the-glass blinds or fabric shades are shielded from dust, pet dander, mold spores and little hands, but they still offer the protection from outdoor activity that you want with an easy-to-operate knob. Learn more about our one-of-a-kind between-the-glass window fashions on our Replacement Window Features or Designer Series pages.
