Pella® Technology Helps with Allergen Reduction in Your Home Pella between-the-glass technology doesn’t only offer low-maintenance cleaning, it also sparks allergen reduction and brings healthier air inside your Memphis 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 annual cost that treating allergy sufferers 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. Amazingly, more than 90% of our lifetime 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 exceeds outdoor pollution by as much as 100 times, depending upon whether the resident smokes. Normal roomside blinds gather 10 times more of certain airborne allergens than Designer Series® windows with between-the-glass blinds1. These between-the-glass blinds or fabric shades are shielded from dust, pet dander, mold spores and messes, but they still offer the protection from the sun that you need with an easy-to-operate switch.
