HERE ARE SOME IMPORTANT TIPS ON FILLING YOUR BALLOONS WITH HELIUM!
X 5” WILL NOT float with helium – AIR FILL ONLY
✓ We do NOT recommend at-home party tanks balloons. Due to the low helium content, balloons may not float. Instead, use high-quality helium from party stores!
✓ Fill Balloons the DAY OF your event for BEST performance. Scroll down page for approximate float times!
✓ Garlands DO NOT need helium. DO NOT use helium in garlands.
✓ If your balloons ARE NOT FLOATING there is NOT ENOUGH HELIUM. It is very important that they are filled with commercial grade helium to the proper size or they will have drastically reduced float times.
✓ Use Hi-Float on SINGLE LAYERED balloons to help extend float time! (Does not help with double stuffers)
✓ Double stuff balloons need to be filled properly to float and will always have reduced float times. Scroll down page for float time info.
JUMBO DOUBLE STUFF 36″ Balloons
✓ 36″ Double Stuff Balloons MUST be filled to 32+” to properly float.
✓ Due to mass helium shortages, party stores may underfill jumbo 36″ / 3 foot balloons to only 25-28″ which results in poor float times. Extra cost may be incurred in order for filling to 32+”
GoGo Glam recommends Air-Fill for these.
✓ Check out 24″ Double Stuff Balloons for cost and environmental savings on helium!
✓ Hi-float will NOT extend the life of double-layered balloons.
✓ When using the bounce test in our video below, make sure they SPRING back. If they float back lazily, they need a little extra shot of helium and they should be good to go!
DOUBLE STUFF FLOAT TIMES
✓ The below float times are based on our experience in our shop using high quality helium and proper filling. If your balloons float for significantly less time there IS NOT ENOUGH HELIUM.
