Pella® Technology Helps with Allergen Reduction in Your Home Pella between-the-glass technology doesn’t only allow easy cleaning, it also helps with allergen reduction and creates healthier air inside your Baton Rouge home. Based upon statistics furnished by WebMD.com, allergies impacts one out of every five people in the U.S., and allergies are ranked 5th among the top chronic diseases. The estimated cost that dealing with allergies adds to the U.S. health care system is nearly $8 billion. Nearly 4 million workdays are lost due to allergies, such as hay fever. Amazingly, more than 90% of our lifetime is spent indoors. Because we are a nation 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 Pella® Designer Series® windows with between-the-glass blinds1. These between-the-glass blinds or fabric shades are safe from dust, pet dander, mold spores and other allergens, but they still deliver the protection from light that you desire with an easy-to-operate switch.
