Balloon Care - Keep your balloons looking beautiful!
Balloons look a lot tougher than they are, here is some advise on how to keep your balloons looking beautiful for as long as possible, as well as an indication on float times and display life times.
Helium balloons will expand in the heat and will likely pop in extreme heat. If left in the cold, the float time will be reduced significantly. The optimum temperature for your balloons is room temperature. We would discourage you from leaving your balloons in a car or garage over night if you cannot guarantee the temperature control.
Please avoid inhaling helium from the balloons, it might sound funny, but it really isn't safe!
General float times for Helium balloons will vary, all of our latex balloons are treated with Ultra Hi-float and should float for up to a week in the right environment (see above temperature advise).
Foil numbers and letters will float for 5-7 days.
Bubble balloons look their best for the first 5-7 days, and will float for up to 2 weeks.
Orbz will float for up to 2 weeks, be advised, Orbz look a lot sturdier than they are, please handle them with care to avoid popping.
Air filled Balloons
Air filled displays inside, will look great for a couple of weeks. If your display is outside, depending on weather conditions, we would not advise leaving them over night.
Displays for outside can be treated with Hi-Shine for them to maintain the shiny balloon look, or be left untreated for more of a velvety style.
Air filled balloons are a little less temperamental in hot and cold weather, however if they do come into contact with extreme heat (hot floors/pipes/windows), they will pop.
Hopefully with advice above will give you what you need to enjoy your balloons for as long as possible!
