Balloon Help & Advice
Caring For Your Balloons
This Care Sheet will assure you get the maximum enjoyment from your displays.
Temperature & Balloon Storage
1. Don't leave balloons in a HOT CAR - helium expands in the heat and this could cause your balloons to pop!
2. USE AIR CONDITIONING on a HOT day to transport balloons to venue.
3. If you find your balloons drooping after coming out of air con car, don't worry - THEY WILL FLOAT AGAIN. Helium molecules shrink in the cold and expands causing the balloons to reinflate again when they get warmer.
* PLEASE NOTE: the colder a balloon is the more likely of the helium escaping through tiny natural holes within the balloon (pourus). Best to keep within room temperature of 18 degrees to 21 degrees
Child & Pet Precaution
1. 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.
2. 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 it's decorative contents (if applicable) immediately.
At the end of a FOIL 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. LATEX can be placed in green bin without ribbon attached.
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!
Most balloons are made of natural rubber latex and may cause allergies. Please look out for symptoms in case of allergies and seek immediate help.
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.
Inhaling helium can be dangerous and it is not recommended. It can deprive your body of oxygen and can result in a fatality.
Balloons can Pop
While we use the highest quality balloons and take every precaution necessary with your balloons to ensure they last through your event, once the balloons leave our door or we have left the venue, they are out of our control.
Clear balloons become cloudy quickly when exposed to heat and sunshine. Coloured balloons will take on a velvety, matte appearance.
