You can expect your giant balloons with ribbon tails to float for at least 3-4 days, probably longer. The giant confetti balloons don’t last quite as long, approximately 2-3 days. Having different tails (for example the foliage tails or tassel tails) can also shorten the float time, as they add extra weight to the balloon. Your giant balloons will get smaller with each passing day as they gradually lose helium. For this reason, we do recommend that they are delivered (or collected) on the day of your event, if possible, to ensure that they look their best for your celebrations.
Caring for your balloons
Your balloon’s favourite environment is:
- to be indoors, at normal room temperature
- away from intense heat, such as radiators
- away from direct sunlight
Exposing your balloon to too much heat will cause it to pop. In the summer months, exposure to sunlight will give your latex balloon a cloudy appearance – the clear latex / confetti balloons and darker coloured latex balloons are most affected by the sun. Light and pastel solid colour balloons are a good choice for summer events, particularly when being used outdoors.
