How long will my helium balloon float for?
Please note that the following information is intended as a guide only.
Helium balloons are susceptible to their environment and can react poorly in extreme environments. Helium expands in the heat, which could result in them popping. Conversely, they will contract in the cold, although this may affect the look of the balloon it can be rectified quite easily by increasing the temperature slightly.
We have a variety of balloon types available including latex, foils, supershapes and bubbles. The actual float time of all these balloons can be affected by a number of factors:
- Are the balloons outside in direct sunlight, wind, rain, etc?
- Balloon manufacturer: quality.
- Weight of attachments
Approximate float times:
|10” Latex balloons||8-10 hours|
|10” latex treated with hifloat||2-3 days|
|12” latex||12 hours|
|18” foil Round||3-5 days|
|Supershapes||Can stay afloat for weeks, but may become saggy|
|Bubbles||2 to 4 weeks|
Can i get my balloon helium filled at your store?

What are foil balloons?
Foil balloons are generally shiny in appearance and are often printed in a variety of colours. They are not porous like latex balloons and therefore hold inflation for much longer provided that they are sealed correctly. As they are made from synthetic materials they are also not biodegradable.
How long will a foil balloon float when inflated with helium?
Float times of foil balloons can vary between sizes and shape but the most common foil size is the 18 inch round balloon, which can stay looking fresh for around 3-5 days.
What is a foil balloon made of?
Foil Balloons are made of a thin, continuous film of metal over nylon.
Are foil and mylar balloons the same?
Yes, these are just different terms used to describe the same type of balloon.
Are Latex balloons biodegradable?
Yes, the balloons we use are high quality and are made from natural substances. They will break down naturally in the environment at approximately the same speed as an oak leaf.
Why do helium filled latex balloons deflate quicker than air filled latex balloons?
Helium molecules are a lot smaller than air molecules and as such, they escape through the latex material much quicker than air.
How can i make my helium balloons float longer?
We offer a service as part of our helium inflation to include a product in your balloons which increases the float time of latex for up 25 times longer! To find out more please contact us or visit us in store.
