Pella® Technology Helps with Allergen Reduction in Your Home Pella between-the-glass technology doesn’t just allow low-maintenance cleaning, it also leads to allergen reduction and keeps healthier air inside your Raleigh home. Based upon statistics furnished by WebMD.com, allergies impacts 20% of all people in the U.S., and allergies are ranked 5th among the top chronic diseases. The estimated cost that treating allergy sufferers adds to the U.S. health care system is nearly $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. Because we are a country 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. Ordinary roomside blinds gather 10 times more of certain airborne allergens than our 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 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. Visit our Raleigh showroom or schedule a free in-home consultation to try this technology for yourself. You’ll see an allergen reduction just days after adding these blinds to your home.
