Pella® Technology Helps with Allergen Reduction in Your Home Pella between-the-glass technology doesn’t only offer simple cleaning, it also helps with allergen reduction and creates healthier air inside your Davenport 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 top chronic diseases. The annual cost that dealing with allergies adds to the U.S. health care system is nearly $8 billion. Nearly 4 million workdays are lost because of allergies, such as hay fever. Over 90% of our life is spent indoors.

Normal 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 protected from dust, pet dander, mold spores and little hands, but they still provide the protection from outdoor activity that you need with an easy-to-operate switch.
