How to care for your helium filled or air filled balloon displays

Caring for Your Balloons

Please don't leave balloons in a hot car - helium expands in the heat and this could cause your balloons to pop! We recommend that you use air conditioning in your vehicle when transporting balloons on a hot day. If your balloons get rained on and start to droop, don't worry – they'll float again when dry. When helium-filled balloons are taken into the cold, they will temporarily deflate and will re-inflate again when warm. However, we advise where possible to store your balloons at a normal room temperature.

Child & Pet Precautions:
Balloons are not a toy. Uninflated or burst balloons can present a choking hazard and should never be left with children under the age of eight without supervision. Please store balloons away from pets to ensure that they cannot get themselves tangled with balloon ribbons or accidentally ingest popped balloons or their decorative contents such as confetti, feathers, or other materials. If a balloon pops, clear away any broken balloons and its decorative contents (if applicable) immediately.

The Environment:
At the end of a balloon's life, carefully cut the end of the balloon with scissors to remove any air or helium balloon gas, then dispose of it in the bin. NEVER release balloons into the environment. ALL released balloons become litter. They can get caught up in trees or power lines. Remember - Don't Let Go & Pin It and Bin It. Think of the environment.

Most balloons are made of natural rubber latex and may cause allergies. Please look out for symptoms in case of allergies and seek immediate medical help.

Inhalation of helium:
Inhaling helium can be dangerous and it is not recommended. It can deprive your body of oxygen and can result in a fatality.

Balloons & Ceilings:
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. Also account for any airflow within the room.

Clear balloons become cloudy quickly when exposed to heat and sunshine. Coloured balloons will take on a velvety, matte appearance. This is a normal process and you should not be concerned.

Balloons can Pop:
Whilst we use the highest quality balloons and take every precaution necessary with your balloons to ensure they last throughout your event, once the balloons leave our shop or we have left the venue where you requested the balloons to be installed, they are out of our control.

Enjoy your balloons!
