How long will the balloons in my order float?
Helium-filled latex balloon float times may vary depending on the size and style. Each product listing includes the estimated float time for that particular arrangement in the description. When ordering balloons, we recommend scheduling the delivery on the day of your event. Foil balloons may float past your event date.
Indoor float times do not apply once balloons are taken outside.
What is Hi-Float sealant?
Hi-Float is a liquid sealant which is used to coat the inside surface of a latex balloon in order to reduce the speed of deflation. When used, float times can increase but are not guaranteed and is non-toxic and water soluble.
How long do you guarantee my balloons will float?
Paris312 guarantees that your balloons will be delivered in good condition, but float times are not guaranteed. Helium-filled latex balloon float times may vary depending on the size and style. Each product listing includes the estimated float time for that particular arrangement in the description. When ordering balloons, we recommend scheduling the delivery on the day of your event. Cold air, hot air, high humidity, changing barometric pressure, high altitudes, and moving air from fans and vents will reduce balloon float times. Changing conditions mean that on some balloons may float for only one day, and on other occasions the same balloons may float for several. Paris312 is not responsible for any products installed or taken outdoors.
What is the best way to prevent balloons from popping?
For the best outcome, Paris312 recommends having your balloon order avoid exposure to direct sunlight, heated surfaces, sharp objects, tiled, wood, or popcorn ceilings. For ceiling balloons, it is recommended to release the balloons one at a time.
