Pella® Technology Helps with Allergen Reduction in Your Home Our between-the-glass technology doesn’t just offer easy cleaning, it also leads to allergen reduction and keeps healthier air inside your Shrewsbury 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 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 as a result of allergies, such as hay fever. Statistics suggest that over 90% of our time is spent indoors. Because we are a country 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. Ordinary roomside blinds gather 10 times more of certain airborne allergens than our 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 little hands, but they still offer the protection from outdoor activity that you want with an easy-to-operate switch. Learn more about our one-of-a-kind between-the-glass window fashions on our Replacement Window Features or Designer Series pages. Visit our Shrewsbury showroom or schedule a free in-home consultation to try this technology for yourself. You’ll see an allergen reduction just days after adding between-the-glass fashions to your room.
