Pella® Technology Helps with Allergen Reduction in Your Home Our between-the-glass technology doesn’t just allow simple cleaning, it also sparks allergen reduction and brings healthier air inside your Nashville 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 estimated cost that treating allergy sufferers adds to the U.S. health care system is almost $8 billion. Nearly 4 million workdays are lost due to allergies, such as hay fever. Over 90% of our life is spent indoors. Considering the fact that we are a country 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 collect 10 times more of certain airborne allergens than our Designer Series® windows with between-the-glass blinds1. Pella’s between-the-glass blinds or fabric shades are shielded from dust, pet dander, mold spores and messes, but they still provide the protection from outdoor activity that you need with an easy-to-operate switch.
