Balloon Care Tips

These are simple tips to keep your balloon as long as possible:

  • Keep your balloons away from pointy and sharp edges

  • Balloons expand in hot weather, so do not leave them in a hot car, they will explode.

  • In cold weather, balloons contract and appear under inflated. Once they are brought in from the cold, they will fill out. 

  • If balloons get rained on and start to droop, don't worry. Shake them off; they will float again when dry.

  • We use latex balloons made from 100% biodegradable, natural rubber. We always treat our latex balloons, so they'll float up to 10 times longer.

  • Foil balloons will float 5-14 days, depending on the size. Although foil balloons are not biodegradable, they are reusable.

  • Foil balloons can conduct electricity if they come into contact with power lines. Make sure your foil balloons are always attached to a weight, and never release mylar balloons. 

  • To make balloons float, they're filled with helium, a non-toxic, non-flammable gas that's safe for the environment

  • Don't inhale the helium because it takes the place of oxygen in your lungs, so you are unable to get the oxygen you need

  • Always supervise young children, and do not allow them to play with deflated balloons. 

  • Properly dispose of balloons. Cut balloons with scissors directly above the knot or sealing point and immediately place in trash container.
