Pella® Technology Helps with Allergen Reduction in Your Home Our between-the-glass technology doesn’t just allow simple cleaning, it also leads to allergen reduction and brings healthier air inside your Wellesley home. According to statistics furnished by WebMD.com, allergies impacts 1 out of 5 people in the U.S., and allergies are ranked 5th among the top chronic diseases. The approximate cost that allergen treatment adds to the U.S. health care system is approaching $8 billion. Nearly 4 million workdays are lost due to allergies, such as hay fever. Over 90% of our life is spent indoors. Considering 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 resident smokes. Ordinary roomside blinds collect 10 times more of certain airborne allergens than Pella® Designer Series® windows with between-the-glass blinds1. Our between-the-glass blinds or fabric shades are protected from dust, pet dander, mold spores and little hands, but they still provide the protection from light that you need with an easy-to-operate lever.
