Pella® Technology Helps with Allergen Reduction in Your Home Our exclusive between-the-glass technology doesn’t only offer easy cleaning, it also sparks allergen reduction and keeps healthier air inside your Long Island home. Based upon statistics furnished by WebMD.com, allergies impacts 20% of all people in the U.S., and allergies are ranked 5th among the top chronic diseases. The estimated cost that allergen treatment adds to the U.S. health care system is approaching $8 billion. Nearly 4 million workdays are lost because of allergies, such as hay fever. Statistics suggest that over 90% of our time is spent indoors. Given the fact that we are a country of animal lovers (over 62% of households include a dog or cat), indoor pollution outpaces outdoor pollution by as much as 100 times, depending upon whether the resident smokes. Typical roomside blinds collect 10 times more of certain airborne allergens than Pella® Designer Series® windows with between-the-glass blinds1. Our between-the-glass blinds or fabric shades are protected from dust, pet dander, mold spores and messes, but they still provide the protection from the sun that you desire with an easy-to-operate switch.
