All Balloons Are Taking Off products are guaranteed to be of the highest quality. Our helium filled latex balloons have been treated with Super Hi Float flight extender and will therefore float for several days, as will the helium filled foil balloons. After 4 - 5 days they will slowly start to deflate and this is quite normal. Balloons Are Taking Off have successfully undertaken a training course so that a national standard for all balloon decoration is guaranteed
