Pella® Technology Helps with Allergen Reduction in Your Home Our between-the-glass technology doesn’t only provide simple cleaning, it also sparks allergen reduction and brings healthier air inside your Rochester home. Based upon statistics furnished by WebMD.com, allergies impacts 20% of all people in the U.S., and allergies are ranked 5th among the top chronic diseases.

Statistics suggest that over 90% of our time 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 resident smokes. Typical roomside blinds accumulate 10 times more of certain airborne allergens than Designer Series® windows with between-the-glass blinds1. Our between-the-glass blinds or fabric shades are protected from dust, pet dander, mold spores and messes, but they still provide the protection from light that you desire with an easy-to-operate knob.
