Pella® Technology Helps with Allergen Reduction in Your Home Our between-the-glass technology doesn’t only provide low-maintenance cleaning, it also helps with allergen reduction and brings healthier air inside your Providence home. Based upon statistics furnished by WebMD.com, allergies impacts 1 out of 5 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. Considering 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 resident smokes. Ordinary roomside blinds gather 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 protected from dust, pet dander, mold spores and other allergens, but they still provide the protection from the sun that you desire with an easy-to-operate lever. Learn more about our innovative between-the-glass features on our Replacement Window Features or Designer Series pages.
