Latex balloons inflated with helium will float for approximately 8-10 hours or with a flight extender gel will last approximately 20 - 24 hours. Foil balloons inflated with helium will float approximately 5 - 7 days. Both foil and latex balloons are adversely affected by the heat & humidity so it is best to keep balloons in a cool environment.

A. As a guideline, it takes approximately 1-1.5hrs to inflate up 100 balloons with helium. 

Q. How do Balloons effect the environment?
A. Latex balloons are made from 100% Natural Latex - therefore are biodegradable and not harmful to the environment. For further information please visit the Qualatex website. Foil & bubble balloons are not good for the environment and are not designed to be released into the environment. If foil balloons come in contact with power lines they can cause electrocution and interruption to service. Please do not release foil balloons into the environment.
