Pella® Technology Helps with Allergen Reduction in Your Home Pella between-the-glass technology doesn’t only provide easy cleaning, it also helps with allergen reduction and keeps healthier air inside your Falls Church 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 annual cost that dealing with allergies adds to the U.S. health care system is approaching $8 billion. Nearly 4 million workdays are lost because of allergies, such as hay fever. Amazingly, more than 90% of our lifetime is spent indoors. Considering the fact that we are a nation of animal lovers (over 62% of households include a dog or cat), indoor pollution surpasses outdoor pollution by as much as 100 times, depending upon whether the homeowner smokes. Ordinary roomside blinds collect 10 times more of certain airborne allergens than our Designer Series® windows with between-the-glass blinds1. Our between-the-glass blinds or fabric shades are shielded from dust, pet dander, mold spores and little hands, but they still deliver the protection from outdoor activity that you want 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. Visit our Falls Church showroom or schedule a free in-home consultation to experience this technology yourself. You’ll see an allergen reduction shortly after adding these blinds to your room.
