What to expect
Your balloon arch is made up of air-filled latex balloons. When indoors, the balloons will stay inflated for at least a week, probably more. However, over time the balloons will start to develop a cloudy appearance and begin to look tired, particularly in the summer months, if exposed to sunlight. If the arch is installed outdoors, the balloons won’t last for so long and will deteriorate a lot quicker.
The balloons will look their best on the day of your event. After that, we can’t offer any guarantee of their longevity if installed for any length of time.
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 balloons to too much heat will cause them to pop. In the summer months, exposure to sunlight will give your latex balloons 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.
