Pella® Technology Helps with Allergen Reduction in Your Home Our exclusive between-the-glass technology doesn’t just allow low-maintenance cleaning, it also sparks allergen reduction and brings healthier air inside your San Antonio home. According to statistics furnished by WebMD.com, allergies impacts one out of every five people in the U.S., and allergies are ranked 5th among the leading chronic diseases. The approximate cost that dealing with allergies adds to the U.S. health care system is almost $8 billion. Nearly 4 million workdays are lost as a result 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 outpaces outdoor pollution by as much as 100 times, depending upon whether the resident smokes. Normal roomside blinds collect 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 little hands, but they still deliver the protection from outdoor activity that you desire with an easy-to-operate lever. Learn more about our one-of-a-kind between-the-glass options on our Replacement Window Features or Designer Series pages.
