Pella® Technology Helps with Allergen Reduction in Your Home Our exclusive between-the-glass technology doesn’t only allow simple cleaning, it also leads to allergen reduction and brings healthier air inside your Colorado Springs 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 leading chronic diseases. The approximate cost that allergen treatment 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. Over 90% of our life is spent indoors. Because 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. Ordinary roomside blinds gather 10 times more of certain airborne allergens than Designer Series® windows with between-the-glass blinds1. Pella’s between-the-glass blinds or fabric shades are safe from dust, pet dander, mold spores and messes, but they still provide the protection from the sun that you desire with an easy-to-operate switch. Learn more about our exclusive between-the-glass window fashions on our Replacement Window Features or Designer Series pages.
