Pella® Technology Helps with Allergen Reduction in Your Home Pella between-the-glass technology doesn’t just provide low-maintenance cleaning, it also leads to allergen reduction and brings healthier air inside your Hunt Valley home. Based on statistics furnished by WebMD.com, allergies impacts one out of every five people in the U.S., and allergies are ranked 5th among the primary chronic diseases. The approximate cost that treating allergy sufferers adds to the U.S. health care system is approaching $8 billion. Nearly 4 million workdays are lost as a result of allergies, such as hay fever. Over 90% of our life is spent indoors. Given the fact that we are a country of animal lovers (over 62% of households include a dog or cat), indoor pollution outpaces outdoor pollution by as much as 100 times, depending upon whether the occupant smokes. Ordinary roomside blinds collect 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 shielded from dust, pet dander, mold spores and little hands, but they still provide the protection from the sun that you want with an easy-to-operate knob.
