Adding The Personal Touch To Your Business

A Bounce House Rental Could Be Great Fun For Your Child's Next Party

by Marie Cox

A bounce house is a fun addition to a child's party. If your child is having a birthday or celebrating an event like the last day of school, then renting a bounce house and throwing a party would be a lot of fun. The house would provide an activity that keeps your party from having boring lulls. Here's what you need to know about bounce house rentals.

Book Early For Busy Times

Book your bounce house rental as early as you can because it may be difficult to get a house during a holiday weekend if you wait too long. People often cancel at the last minute though, so it's still worth checking even if you call a few days ahead of time. You'll probably need to make a deposit with your reservation and then pay the full amount when the bounce house is delivered.

Get Your Yard Ready

Bounce houses are usually set up in the grass. However, if necessary, the company might be able to set the house up on your asphalt or concrete driveway. It might even be possible to set the bounce house up inside of a large building such as a gymnasium or a park shelter.

The company may ask you to mow a day or two in advance and shut your sprinklers off so your grass doesn't get wet the day of delivery. Also, you'll want to measure the area where you intend to place the house so you know for sure the bounce house will fit or if you need to find a different location.

You won't have to do anything to set up the bounce house other than making sure the yard in the area is clean and an outlet is accessible with an extension cord. If the house has a water slide, then you'll also need a water spigot nearby.

Learn The Rules

A bounce house rental has rules you need to follow to keep everyone safe and to protect the house. An adult will need to supervise the bounce house at all times. There may be a weight limit for adults and an occupancy limit for kids. Small kids and big kids may need to be split into groups so small children stay safe.

You should also avoid eating, drinking, and chewing gum in the bounce house. If the house has stains or spills, you may be charged an extra cleaning fee. You also shouldn't move the house or pull up the stakes. The company will tear the house down when they come to pick it up.
