long will my balloons last?
11 inch latex balloons will float on average 11-12 hours filled
with helium and around 2-5 days when treated with a product
balloons can float between 5-7 days. Airfilled latex balloons
will generally last a couple of weeks but will not float.
Hi Float is a liquid protective coating
that is inserted into a balloon and prevents helium escaping
as quickly. It is water soluble and non toxic. We use Ultra
Hi-Float in all our balloon bouquets so they float for longer
you set my balloons up the night before my event?
Yes. We can set-up the day before your
event and use Ultra-Hi Float but it is much better to have
your balloons inflated with helium just before your event
so they always look their best. For conferences and trade
shows treating balloons with Ultra High Float is the best
way to keep balloons floating for 1-4 days.
Helium is safe to use and is not flammable.
However, care should be taken in the use and storage of it.
It should never be inhaled as it fills your lungs and displaces
oxygen and can be fatal.
I buy cheaper balloons and fill them myself?
Of course. Buying cheap balloons from variety stores and hiring
a tank is a good idea if you just want party balloons to float
for around 4-6 hours for kid's parties. However, it pays to
purchase an extra pack of balloons as these type of balloons
are prone to popping.
