Pella® Technology Helps with Allergen Reduction in Your Home Pella between-the-glass technology doesn’t just provide low-maintenance cleaning, it also helps with allergen reduction and creates healthier air inside your Kansas City home. Based on statistics furnished by WebMD.com, allergies impacts 1 out of 5 people in the U.S., and allergies are ranked 5th among the primary chronic diseases. The approximate cost that allergen treatment adds to the U.S. health care system is approaching $8 billion. Nearly 4 million workdays are lost due to allergies, such as hay fever. Statistics suggest that over 90% of our time is spent indoors. Considering the fact that we are a country 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 occupant smokes. Normal 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 provide the protection from light that you desire with an easy-to-operate knob.
