Caring for your balloons
To keep your balloons looking good for as long as possible please follow the steps below:
Keep balloons away from direct sunlight and warm places. Helium expands in warm temperatures so balloons can burst if left in front of windows, in conservatories, cars etc. Avoid very low temperatures too as they can affect the float time of the balloon, balloons prefer to be in comfortable room temperatures.
Keep the balloons away from open windows, doors and breezy spots as they can be blown against sharp objects and will burst.
The balloons look good enough to touch but please handle them with extreme care as they are delicate. It is best to keep little fingers away from the balloons as they are not built to be played with (at least until the party is over!)
Make sure balloons are not near any sharp objects as they will burst! Check there are no nails in walls or sharp corners/edges close to where you are displaying the balloon/balloons as it will puncture if they brush against them.
If you follow the above guidelines your balloon should float for between 5 to 10 days. The writing will bubble or wrinkle slightly after 24 to 48 hours as the balloon slowly reduces in size, this is part of the balloons natural “ageing process” and cannot be avoided.
11” latex balloons generally last between 12-20 hours filled with helium, and about 2-3 days when treated with Hi-Float.
Foil balloons last approx. 5-7 days.
Orbz & Cubz Balloons
Average good float-time: 2-3 weeks but may last longer depending on conditions.
Organic Air Filled Displays
Air-filled balloons generally last for a couple of weeks, but will not float.
One final thought… please do not inhale the balloon gas inside your balloon as it is dangerous and can cause loss of conciousness.
