Helium FAQs

Q: How long does a Helium balloon stay inflated for?

  • It varies based on the type, size, and material of the balloon. Foil balloons last from 5-7 days, slowly losing shape as time goes by. Latex balloons last about a day, but their "float time" can be extended considerably by using Hi-Float to coat the inside.

 

Q: Can you refill a Helium Balloon?

  • Foil balloons can be refilled provided they've not been damaged and the neck hasn't been sealed. Latex balloons are usually only used once as the neck is usually tied and they leak more helium the more times they are used.

 

Q: Where can I get helium?

  • We sell it in a variety of small, medium, and large-sized helium canisters depending on the number of balloons you need. Take a look at our helium canisters to find out more.

 

Q: Is helium flammable?

  • No, helium gas is not flammable and is completely safe to use at any party, however, since helium balloons float upwards, they can pop if they touch a hot lightbulb, so it's best to keep them away from lights and candles… just to be safe.

 

Q: Is it safe to inhale helium and make my voice sound funny?

  • Inhaling helium can be very dangerous so we'd always recommend you breathe in regular air where possible!
