Pella® Technology Helps with Allergen Reduction in Your Home Our exclusive between-the-glass technology doesn’t just allow low-maintenance cleaning, it also helps with allergen reduction and brings healthier air inside your Washington DC home. Based on statistics furnished by WebMD.com, allergies impacts 20% of all people in the U.S., and allergies are ranked 5th among the leading chronic diseases. The approximate 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. Statistics suggest that over 90% of our time is spent indoors. Because we are a society 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 homeowner smokes. Normal roomside blinds collect 10 times more of certain airborne allergens than our Designer Series® windows with between-the-glass blinds1. Our between-the-glass blinds or fabric shades are safe from dust, pet dander, mold spores and messes, but they still deliver the protection from outdoor activity that you want with an easy-to-operate lever. Learn more about our one-of-a-kind between-the-glass window fashions on our Replacement Window Features or Designer Series pages.
