Pella® Technology Helps with Allergen Reduction in Your Home Pella between-the-glass technology doesn’t only allow simple cleaning, it also helps with allergen reduction and creates healthier air inside your Ketchum 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 primary chronic diseases. The estimated cost that treating allergy sufferers adds to the U.S. health care system is almost $8 billion. Nearly 4 million workdays are lost due to allergies, such as hay fever. Over 90% of our life is spent indoors. Because 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 resident smokes. Normal roomside blinds gather 10 times more of certain airborne allergens than Pella® 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 outdoor activity that you want with an easy-to-operate knob. Learn more about our one-of-a-kind between-the-glass window fashions on our Replacement Window Features or Designer Series pages.
