Pella® Technology Helps with Allergen Reduction in Your Home Our exclusive between-the-glass technology doesn’t just offer low-maintenance cleaning, it also leads to allergen reduction and brings healthier air inside your Lewes home. Based upon 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 annual 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. Amazingly, more than 90% of our lifetime is spent indoors. Given the fact that we are a society 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 occupant smokes. Ordinary roomside blinds accumulate 10 times more of certain airborne allergens than our Designer Series® windows with between-the-glass blinds1. These between-the-glass blinds or fabric shades are shielded from dust, pet dander, mold spores and other allergens, but they still provide the protection from the sun that you want with an easy-to-operate lever. Learn more about our innovative between-the-glass options on our Replacement Window Features or Designer Series pages.
