Balloon FAQ

Q: How long will my balloons last for?


Wherever possible, we treat our latex balloons with a non-toxic sealant which coats the inner wall of the balloon and stops the helium molecules from escaping so quickly. This significantly increases the balloon's float time. The average float time for a treated 11 inch latex balloon is around three days. If untreated, a latex balloon of this size will only float for sixteen to eighteen hours.

However, it is important to be aware that the balloons will get smaller with each passing day as they gradually lose helium.  When ordering latex balloons we therefore strongly recommend that they are  collected on the day of your event to ensure that they look their best for your celebrations.


Q: How much notice do you need?


We are always happy to supply balloons at short notice but it is dependant upon availability and whether or not we have all of the balloons in stock. If possible, it's best to give us at least 1 week's notice to allow time to order in your balloons, if required.

Balloon Care Tips

1.  Balloons & Temperature. Please don’t leave your 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 will float again when dry. When helium filled balloons are taken into the cold, they will temporarily deflate and will re-inflate again when warm.


2.   Child and 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 8 without supervision. Store balloons away from pets to ensure they cannot get themselves tangled with balloon ribbons or accidentally ingest popped balloons or their 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. 


3.  Balloons and the Environment – At the end of a balloon’s life, cut the end of the balloon with scissors to remove any air or helium, 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 and Bin it 


 4.  Balloons & Allergies – Most balloons are made of natural rubber latex and may cause allergies. Please look out for symptoms and seek immediate help. 


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


6. Balloons and 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 you test it first


 7.  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
