What to expect
The average float time for a standard size (solid colour) latex balloon is around three days. The confetti balloons of this size have shorter longevity, with a float time of around 24 hours. Please be aware that your latex balloons will get smaller with each passing day as they gradually lose helium. When ordering latex balloons, we 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.
