Balloon Garland Disclaimer

Little Bounce Co, LLC will not be held liable for latex and mylar balloons, once they are out of our care.   We cannot guarantee that your balloons decorations will last for a certain period of time, once the balloons have been delivered and/or installed.  Please keep in mind that environmental conditions such as weather conditions (i.e. rain, snow, heat, winds, etc.), children, pets, surfaces or foliage, can impact the lifespan of the balloons.  Little Bounce Company will replace the balloons that pop during the transportation and installation process.   Little Bounce Company  uses only the highest quality balloons and materials for special events.   Balloon colors may differ online due to customized color combinations, photo filters and edits.  As latex is a natural product, balloons will begin oxidizing within hours of delivery. This means that your balloons may begin to give off a velvety sheen and begin to look differently than when first delivered or installed. This is a natural process and cannot be reversed.

 

Balloon Care

  • Store balloons in a cool, dry environment and out of direct sunlight. 

  • On hot days, or 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.

  •  Keep balloons away from any type of cool breeze for maximum float time. 

  • Do not inhale helium from a balloon.  Inhaling helium can result in asphyxiation (loss of consciousness due to insufficient oxygen).

  • Do not leave balloons in vehicles unattended. 

  • Do not release balloons outdoors.  Power failures can result if these balloons become entangled in electric lines.  Moreover, latex balloon materials are harmful to animals if ingested. 

  • Keep balloons away from sharp objects.

  • Latex and/or foil balloons are in no way heat or cold resistant. The gases within balloons expand and contract in hot or cold conditions. Some popping or shrinking may occur depending on the conditions surrounding your balloon display.

  • Constant adult supervision for children and pets is strongly recommended when balloons are present as balloons, broken or uninflated, present a choking hazard and should be disposed of immediately in proper trash receptacle.   

 

Balloon Releases

Little Bounce Co, LLC does not participate in balloon releases of any kind, regardless of the number of balloons requested by the Client. Little Bounce Company has the right to refuse or book a service involving balloon releases. 

Balloon Hazard for Children and Pets

Because of the danger of suffocation and choking hazard, adult supervision is required. Children under 9 years of age and pets can choke on uninflated or broken balloons. Keep uninflated and broken balloons away from children and pets. Discard broken balloons immediately in a proper trash receptacle. The Client is responsible for supervising all use, and preventing all misuse or abuse of balloons, equipment and materials related to the event.
