Pella® Technology Helps with Allergen Reduction in Your Home Our exclusive between-the-glass technology doesn’t just offer simple cleaning, it also leads to allergen reduction and brings healthier air inside your Casper 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 primary 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 due to allergies, such as hay fever. Statistics suggest that over 90% of our time is spent indoors. Because we are a nation 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. Normal roomside blinds accumulate 10 times more of certain airborne allergens than Pella® Designer Series® windows with between-the-glass blinds1. These between-the-glass blinds or fabric shades are safe from dust, pet dander, mold spores and messes, but they still deliver the protection from the sun that you want with an easy-to-operate knob.
