BALLOON PERFORMANCE

BALLOONS — WE WISH THEY WOULD LAST FOREVER

Balloon Planet uses the highest grade balloons manufactured, however, even the world's best balloons are fragile products with a relatively short life span. When ordering or sending balloons, expect to enjoy them for 2-3 days if used indoors, and less than a full day if used outdoors. Under ideal conditions, balloons can float much longer, but our guarantee is limited to the 2-3 day range. More details follow.

1. FLOAT TIMES

Cold air, hot air, high humidity, changing barometric pressure, high altitudes, and moving air from fans and vents will reduce balloon float times. The float times posted on our site are the maximum to be expected. Changing conditions mean that on some occasions balloons may float for only one day, and on other occasions the same balloons may float for many days. We guarantee that your balloons will be delivered in perfect condition, but float times are not guaranteed.

The following standard float times apply to balloon-friendly indoor environments.

FLOAT TIMES FOR MYLAR BALLOONS
In optimum environments, mylar (foil) balloons will remain full and taught for 3 days. Air-conditioned air may cause these balloons to shrivel, but they will return to a normal state when exposed to warmer air.

FLOAT TIMES FOR LATEX BALLOONS WITHOUT HI-FLOAT® TREATMENT
16-inch latex balloons will float indoors for 30 hours.
11-inch latex balloons will float indoors for 16 hours.
Float times may be reduced by as much as 60% at elevations above 2,500 feet.

HI-FLOAT™ TREATMENT
Hi-Float is a non-toxic sealant used inside of the balloon. It is effective only when used indoors, out of direct sunlight, and when not exposed to breezes created by fans, open windows, or air-conditioning. In ideal conditions Hi-Float will extend float times as follows:

11-inch latex: 2 Days
16-inch latex: 3 Days

Float time may be reduced significantly in unusually warm, unusually cool, or very humid environments, and at elevations above 2,500 feet.

Any bouquet or balloon which includes the letters HF in the product number include treatment with Hi-Float®. Bulk orders of plain latex balloons can be ordered with or without Hi-Float®.

2. GLOSSY VS MATTE FINISH

When latex balloons are first inflated, they will have a glossy surface. Some designs will be both glossy and translucent. This can be a temporary state. By the time they are delivered, or shortly thereafter, this glossy finish may have turned to a matte finish, and the translucent quality may become opaque. These changes are the result of oxidation, which occurs with certain meteorological condtions. This is normal, and there is no practical treatment that can prevent this transformation.

3. DEFECTIVE BALLOONS

In cases where balloons appear defective, Balloon Planet will replace the balloons at no cost if the following conditions are met:

a) Customer advises Balloon Planet of the problem within 3 days of delivery.
b) The defective balloons are on site and available for pick-up when the replacement balloons arrive.
c) The balloons were not transported from their original delivery location.

4. EFFECTS OF ELEVATION, SUNLIGHT, AIR CONDITIONING, AND WIND
Float times will be reduced at higher elevations. The float time in Denver is half the float time in Los Angeles.

On hot days, in direct sunlight, balloons may pop within an hour. The same result can occur indoors if balloons are exposed to direct sunlight through windows.

Very cool environments may cause helium molecules to shrink, reducing the size and float time of balloons.

A constant breeze passing around a balloon will increase the speed at which helium molecules escape through the wall of the balloon, resulting in reduced float time. Keep balloons away from any type of breeze for maximum float time.

5. CEILING PRECAUTIONS

Static and invisible fibers on ceilings can cause balloons to pop. Allow your balloons to remain tied to an anchor for at least five hours before releasing them to the ceiling. This allows the balloons to shrink enough so that the skin becomes thicker and tougher. After five hours, take 2-3 balloons and rake them across the ceiling. If these do not pop, it should be safe to release additional balloons. If they do pop, allow additional time and run the test again.

6. SAFETY PRECAUTIONS

A. Do not breathe helium from a balloon. Helium is not toxic nor flammable, but breathing it can result in asphyxiation (loss of consciousness due to insufficient oxygen).

B. Do not release mylar (foil) balloons outdoors. Power failures can result if these balloons become entangled in electric lines.

C. Popped latex balloons present a choking hazard for small children. Do not leave small children unaccompanied with latex balloons.
