There are some things to keep in mind when renting or purchasing an inflatable castle or another inflatable bouncing object. First, you need to make sure that you are buying or in most cases renting, a bouncy castle that is made out of safe material. There are standards in the U.S. and the UK that govern the type of material that bouncy castles and other inflatables can be made out of. This is for the protection and the safety of those who will be bouncing the castle. If the material isn’t durable enough, the bouncy object could tear and puncture easily. This would be a danger to the children because they could fall right to the hard ground, get stuck inside of the material, choke, or suffocate to death. On the other hand, if the material is too harsh, the children can break their bones or suffer friction burns when they land on the material after bouncing. This is why the material that is used is regulated and certified to be safe.
If you are renting an inflatable toy, you need to make sure that the rental company will be responsible for the set up of the bouncy castle, the removal of the castle and for maintenance. The rental company needs to ensure that the bouncy castle is maintained in a way that is sanitary. Find out their methods for cleaning the castle. If the castle doesn’t get a good disinfecting cleansing, you don’t want your children to use it for obvious reasons. Make sure that the rental company repairs any rips and slits.
If you are buying an inflatable castle, make sure that you can get a money back guarantee if you are unhappy. Make sure that you can buy your purchase from a company that will give you complete instructions on how to use and care for your bouncy castle.
Whether you rent, or purchase a jumping castle for your kids, you will be happy with your decision. Just make sure that the inflatable is safe, clean, and maintained well and your backyard parties or your parties in the park will be the event that all of your child’s friends will want to attend.
