Balloon Care

 

 

In this section we want to give you some information

about the different types of balloons available and how to care for them

 

We sell Foil balloons, Latex balloons & Deco Bubble balloons

these are all made of different materials but all share something in

common - They are all delicate items of beauty, 

they are not toys and can all be burst if they come into contact

with something sharp or rough

 

Foil Balloons

 

Foil Balloons can give days of enjoyment and

pleasure if looked after and treated correctly

 

Change to Temperature

A helium filled foil balloon does not like changes to temperature.

 

A foil balloon filled with helium exposed to cold air will

begin to appear soft as if deflating, this caused by the helium gas molecules

in the balloon contracting. When returned to a warm room the helium 

reverts to normal and the balloon will restore its normal shape.

 

A foil balloon filled with helium exposed to heat will cause the helium

inside the foil begin to expand which can cause theseam of the balloon to split.

 

Balloon Floating Time

A foil balloon filled with helium would normally be

expected to last for 3-5 days provided

it hasn't been exposed to changes in temperature or damaged

in anyway however they can last much longer than that, 

we have had several customers who have had foils last for months!

 

Outdoor Use 

We don't normally recommend Foil balloons for outdoor use.

Unfotunately a Foil balloon taken outside is open to alldifferent

kinds of weather conditions. As already mentioned temperature changes

can affect the foil balloon, rain will causethe balloon to drop

and of course the wind, even the lightest breeze can cause

the balloon to come into contact with something sharp or rough

such as a wall or garden hedge or tree all of which can burst the balloon.

 

We do not suppy Foil balloons for release as this is not good

for the environment, the material they are made from is not

Biodigradeable, they can cause problems if they come

into contact with power lines

 

Latex Balloons

 

Change to Temperature

Although the effect is not as dramatic as on a Foil balloon,

a helium filled Latex balloon does not like changes to temperature.

 

The molecules of the helium gas will expand or contract in hot or cold conditions

 

Balloon Floating Time

An untreated helium filled Latex balloon has a limited float time,

a standard 11" Latex balloon filled with helium would

not be looking at its best after 12 hours

We treat all our helium filled Latex with a Gel product called Hi-Float,

this extends the life and float time of the latex balloon giving

you a great looking, long lasting display - approx 3-5 days

 

Outdoor Use 

Just like a Foil balloon, a Latex balloon filled with helium is

at the mercy of the weather conditions. Even the lightest breeze

can cause the balloon to come into contact with something sharp or

rough such as a wall, fence or vegetation all of which can burst the balloon.

 

The quality Latex balloons that we sell are 100% biodegradeable so

can be used for Balloon releases. The Latex, which is a natural

product, breaks down over time and causes no damage to the environment.
