Pella® Technology Helps with Allergen Reduction in Your Home Pella between-the-glass technology doesn’t just allow low-maintenance cleaning, it also helps with allergen reduction and keeps healthier air inside your Edmonton 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 primary chronic diseases. The annual 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. Statistics suggest that over 90% of our time 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 occupant smokes. Ordinary 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 protected from dust, pet dander, mold spores and other allergens, but they still provide the protection from outdoor activity that you desire with an easy-to-operate switch.
