Pella® Technology Helps with Allergen Reduction in Your Home Pella between-the-glass technology doesn’t only offer easy cleaning, it also helps with allergen reduction and brings healthier air inside your Greensboro home. According to 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 annual cost that treating allergy sufferers adds to the U.S. health care system is approaching $8 billion. Nearly 4 million workdays are lost due to allergies, such as hay fever. Statistics suggest that over 90% of our time is spent indoors. Given the fact that we are a society 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 homeowner smokes. Typical roomside blinds gather 10 times more of certain airborne allergens than Designer Series® windows with between-the-glass blinds1. Pella’s between-the-glass blinds or fabric shades are protected from dust, pet dander, mold spores and messes, but they still offer the protection from light that you need with an easy-to-operate lever.
