Follow our Balloon Care guide to ensure that your Balloons are kept looking as good as possible for as long as possible! There are many things that could affect the time your balloons stay inflated for, follow these simple steps to keep yours looking as great.
Balloons & Temperature
Please do not leave balloons anywhere too hot or cold! Sounds silly we know but helium expands in the heat and this could cause your balloons to pop! When helium balloons are taken into the cold, they will temporarily deflate and will re-inflate again when warm. Keeping the balloons in an even temperature will keep them looking better for longer.
Balloons & Children and Pets
As fun as they look, balloons are not a toy. Un-inflated or burst balloons can present a choking hazard and should never be left with children under the age of eight without supervision. Store balloons away from pets to ensure that they cannot get themselves tangled with balloon ribbons. If a balloon pops, clear away any broken balloons and its decorative contents as soon as you can! Supervise children under 8 years.
Balloons & the Environment
At the end of a balloon's life, cut the end of the balloon with scissors to remove any air or balloon gas, then dispose of it in the bin. Never release balloons into the environment. All released balloons become litter. Balloons are often mistaken for food by both land and marine animals, posing a big choking hazard for them. They can get caught up in trees or power lines. All latex balloons we use are sourced from sustainable rubber tree plantations which are certified by the Rainforest Alliance.
Balloons & Loud Bangs
While we use the highest quality balloons and take every precaution necessary with your balloons to ensure they last as long as possible, once the balloons leave our door, they are out of our control. Lights, paint textures, irregular surfaces and even static can all pop balloons. If you are planning on placing your balloons on a ceiling, ensure that you test it first.
