Pella® Technology Helps with Allergen Reduction in Your Home Our between-the-glass technology doesn’t only provide easy cleaning, it also helps with allergen reduction and keeps healthier air inside your Tucson home. According to statistics furnished by WebMD.com, allergies impacts 1 out of 5 people in the U.S., and allergies are ranked 5th among the leading chronic diseases. The estimated 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. Amazingly, more than 90% of our lifetime is spent indoors. Because 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 resident 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 safe from dust, pet dander, mold spores and other allergens, but they still deliver the protection from outdoor activity that you want with an easy-to-operate switch.
