So, you've planned an entire event, bought your Crossover bounce house, and everything is ready to go. There's just one issue: how do you get the bounce house set up to begin with, and broken down when you're wrapping things up? Fortunately, it's a very simple process as long as you know what you're doing. To help you out, we've put together a few of the top tips for safely inflating and deflating your Crossover Bounce House!
1. Find a Flat Surface to Inflate
As you may expect, the terrain you inflate your bounce house on is extremely important. When looking for a place to set everything up, be sure you’re inflating the bounce house on flat terrain, and be extremely careful to check for rocks, branches, or anything else that could puncture the inflatable.
2. Be Sure the Blower is Secure
Bounce houses require a continuous supply of air to stay up and running, so if the blower that’s supplying air becomes loose or disconnects entirely, the entire inflatable could collapse, posing a safety risk to guests. When you set up the blower, be sure it’s firmly and securely in place before allowing any guests on the inflatable, ensuring a safe and fun experience for all.
3. Remove all Items Inside the Bounce House
Once it’s time to deflate the bounce house, be sure to check the interior for stray items that guests may have dropped like pencils or jewelry. Though losing those items inside a bounce house just sounds like an inconvenience in theory, the sharp points and edges many common items have can actually cause a lot of damage in practice. You don’t have to do an extremely detailed inspection every time you use the bounce house, but quickly combing over the inside for any stray items can make all the difference.
4. Push Air Out of the Bounce House
Typically, bounce houses won’t deflate by themselves; you need to do a bit more work to get all the air out. Fortunately, doing this is easy enough. To simplify the process, Crossover bounce houses have easy deflation zippers, so just unzip them, wait for most of the air to leave the bounce house, and then walk over any areas that are still partially inflated. From there, all that’s left to do is fold up the bounce house and store it for the next event!
