FAQ's

How long is the hire period?


Hire period is 2 days. Generally hired over the weekend. Pick up is anytime after 4pm on Friday and must be returned by 4pm Monday. We charge a $15 charge per extra day the tank is not returned.




How much is the bond/ deposit?


Each size tank hire has a different deposit/ bond rate.




How long will helium balloons float for?


Latex Balloons have a short float time with helium and should be inflated on the day of use, Hi-Float can be added to balloons to increase the float time up to 25x enabling you to inflate in advance of your event.




How much helium do I need?





What weights will my balloons require?





Why won't my latex balloon float?


The main reason a balloon wont float is if not enough helium has been added, check the correct size of your balloons and add helium until the balloon reaches its correct size. Another reason for it not floating is if you have added too much weight to your balloon, tassels and decorations will weigh down balloons so only add very light-weight items to smaller balloons. Sometimes weather also plays a role in the reason why balloons will not float. Eg. In rainy conditions may cause the balloons to stop floating. This is just one of many examples.




How do I know I have inflated my latex balloons fully to the correct size?


A good trick when filling balloons at home is to measure the space that the balloon needs to be inflated to between the backs of two chairs or two boxes and inflate within this space. If your balloon is 11 inches, do not over inflate it as you risk, distortion, bursting or bugaling.




Confetti Balloons - How do I make the confetti stick to the sides of the balloon?


Filling a confetti balloon with air not helium will result in the confetti sticking to the insides of the balloon which looks fabulous, however with only pure helium inside the balloon the confetti may pool mostly in the bottom of the balloon, which is pretty but doesn't give the effect that some people want. To make the confetti stick to the sides of the balloon it can help to create some static within the balloon by rubbing the balloon on hair or clothing. Another way to make the confetti cover the insides is to fill the balloon with a mix of air and helium, fill the balloon with a few puffs of air and then 90% helium.




Foil Balloons - do I fill with air or helium?


Some foil balloons are air-fill only and this information is on each item description. All our foil balloons that can be filled with helium can also be filled with air, you may wish to fill with just air to use them as a prop or attach to balloon sticks or to stick onto the wall etc. To fill a balloon with air insert a straw into the valve and blow into it.




Foil Balloons - Can I reuse my Foil Balloons?


It is possible to re-use most foil balloons but we cannot guarantee that it will work every time as they are fairly delicate but it is worth a try. Expel the air from your balloon by inserting a long straw quite a distance into the self sealing valve, the air will then start to come out and you can flatten and fold your balloon.




How do I dispose of my Balloons responsibly?


Balloons are the ultimate party decoration! They are as integral to a party as confetti and flowers are to a wedding. But when the party is over how should we dispose of our balloons? There has been some debate and confusion over how to best dispose of balloons, and as to their environmental impact. How to responsibly dispose of your used balloons depends on what they are made of: Latex Balloons Latex balloons are made from 100% natural latex tapped from the rubber tree – Hevea Brasiliensis, a completely natural product. Organic pigments are added to the latex to make hundreds of colours. It is thought that latex balloons decompose at about the same rate as an oak leaf in natural soil conditions, but depending on the exact conditions the balloons end up in (i.e. salt water, sand etc) we would advise that they could take between 1 year and 3 years to decompose fully. For more information see PEBA Latex Balloon Biodegradability Observations Don't let go! - we love balloons but we love the environment too. We do not support balloon releases and we urge our customers 'Don't let go'. When Balloons are released into the air they will fall into our environment and simply become 'litter'. Although they will eventually decompose, until that time they will litter our beaches and countryside, they will be not only visually offensive but may also cause harm to wildlife and marine life. Latex Balloons will completely decompose over time Please 'Don't Let Go'' of your balloons for them to litter the environment Please dispose of Latex Balloons in your household waste where they will decompose in landfill. Mylar (Metallic/Plastic) Balloons Mylar balloons are made with a plastic/nylon, synthetic material that is recyclable but it does not biodegrade. They will be in the landfills forever, so recycle them along with your recyclable plastics. Re-use rather than recycle! The best alternative to recycling Mylar Balloons is simply to save them to be reinflated on another occasion. Mylar balloons are fragile so this doesn't work every time, but If you insert a straw at least 6- 10 inches in length up into the hole where it was originally inflated, you can press out the remaining helium in order to store the balloons flat ready to reinflate when you next need them! Mylar Balloons are not Biodegradable Mylar Balloons are recyclable and can be disposed of with your recyclable plastics Please flatten, store and re-use your Mylar Balloons when possible. The Face Painters, Bodya Artists & Balloon Benders are a proud member of the Pro Environment Balloon Alliance. PEBA’s members do not support or condone, nor will they facilitate the deliberate release of balloons. http://www.peba.com.au. Members of PEBA are committed to educating their clients, venue managers and the general public, by all possible means, in the responsible use and disposal of balloons. PIN IT & BIN IT!
