7. Float times and different conditions
All of our latex balloons are treated with a special Hi-Float polymer glue that allows latex balloons to float for up to 1,5 weeks under ideal conditions. However, please be aware that the floating time can be reduced up to 10 times due to humidity, and environmental changes. Weather conditions are included such as elevations above sea levels (e.g. mountains), exposure to direct sunlight, or heat and cold air.
Cold air, including air conditioning, can cause aluminum balloons to shrivel. They shall then return to their original condition when exposed to normal temperatures.
8. Defective Products
Faraday Event Deco & Balloons takes the utmost care in preparing all orders and is proud to provide high quality products and customer service. Our standard: every item leaves the store in perfect condition. As such :
- In the exceptional case that the balloons are damaged during transport, we will replace the faulty product in the shortest possible time or refund the damaged item.
- Faraday Event Deco & Balloons accepts no responsibility for your balloon order after it has been safely delivered, that is if no immediate complaint has been registered by the recipient of the order.
- Faraday Event Deco & Balloons shall not refund, replace or exchange items that have been damaged after delivery, due to lack of care or adverse environmental conditions.
9. Security Measures
A. Do not inhale helium from balloons. Helium is not in itself toxic or flammable, but breathing it can cause asphyxiation (loss of consciousness due to lack of oxygen).
B. Do not release mylar (aluminum) balloons outdoors. Power outages, fire or electric shock can occur if these balloons get tangled in power lines.
C. Burst latex balloons are a choking hazard for young children and can be deadly to pets. Do not leave young children or pets unattended with latex balloons.
Faraday Event Deco & Balloons SARL cannot be held responsible for any injuries or accidents caused by failure to heed these warnings.
