Pella® Technology Helps with Allergen Reduction in Your Home Our exclusive between-the-glass technology doesn’t just offer simple cleaning, it also sparks allergen reduction and keeps healthier air inside your Evansville home. According to statistics furnished by WebMD.com, allergies impacts one out of every five people in the U.S., and allergies are ranked 5th among the leading chronic diseases. The annual cost that allergen treatment adds to the U.S. health care system is almost $8 billion. Nearly 4 million workdays are lost because of allergies, such as hay fever. Over 90% of our life is spent indoors. Given the fact that we are a nation 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 accumulate 10 times more of certain airborne allergens than Pella® Designer Series® windows with between-the-glass blinds1. These between-the-glass blinds or fabric shades are safe from dust, pet dander, mold spores and messes, but they still deliver the protection from light that you desire with an easy-to-operate lever.
