Pella® Technology Helps with Allergen Reduction in Your Home Our exclusive between-the-glass technology doesn’t only offer low-maintenance cleaning, it also sparks allergen reduction and brings healthier air inside your Boise 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 approximate cost that treating allergy sufferers adds to the U.S. health care system is approaching $8 billion. Nearly 4 million workdays are lost because of allergies, such as hay fever. Amazingly, more than 90% of our lifetime is spent indoors. Considering the fact that 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 homeowner smokes. Normal roomside blinds gather 10 times more of certain airborne allergens than our Designer Series® windows with between-the-glass blinds1. Our between-the-glass blinds or fabric shades are shielded from dust, pet dander, mold spores and messes, but they still offer the protection from outdoor activity that you desire with an easy-to-operate lever. Learn more about our innovative between-the-glass options on our Replacement Window Features or Designer Series pages. Visit our Boise showroom or schedule a free in-home consultation to try this technology for yourself. You’ll see an allergen reduction shortly after adding these blinds to your room.
