Pella® Technology Helps with Allergen Reduction in Your Home Pella between-the-glass technology doesn’t just allow low-maintenance cleaning, it also leads to allergen reduction and creates healthier air inside your Baltimore home. Based upon statistics furnished by WebMD.com, allergies impacts one out of every five people in the U.S., and allergies are ranked 5th among the top chronic diseases. The annual cost that dealing with allergies adds to the U.S. health care system is almost $8 billion. Nearly 4 million workdays are lost as a result of allergies, such as hay fever. Amazingly, more than 90% of our lifetime is spent indoors. Because we are a country of animal lovers (over 62% of households include a dog or cat), indoor pollution exceeds outdoor pollution by as much as 100 times, depending upon whether the occupant smokes. Typical roomside blinds collect 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 other allergens, but they still provide the protection from outdoor activity that you desire with an easy-to-operate lever. Learn more about our exclusive between-the-glass window fashions on our Replacement Window Features or Designer Series pages.
