Having a bounce house at your event is a great way to keep kids entertained and having fun! However, there are a few safety tips to ensure the fun continues with no injuries!
The first thing you need to do when renting a bounce house is to make sure the actual house itself is installed correctly and accordingly so nobody gets hurt from how it was put up. If you’re not sure if it’s set up properly, ask the workers who brought it or make sure you’re following the instructions. Any small tear, rip, or area that isn’t set up correctly could result in an injury.
You should also check who’s going to most likely be using the bounce house. Of course, the kids will be, but you need a limit to how many are going to be jumping and prancing around so the limit isn’t exceeded. This rule is also applied to adults if any are thinking of joining in! Remember that if anyone has anything on them, whether it’s in their pockets or on their head, they should set it outside so nobody accidentally gets a cut or bruise from a flying phone or pair of sunglasses! The bounce house is a rental, so you need to make sure nothing ends up damaging the house so you don’t have to pay extra money for a replacement.
With that mindset, a rental option should also come with the other rules that you’ll have to watch out for. You need to stop any children from bringing a cupcake or soda in the bounce house with them! That is an extremely well-known choking hazard that could occur, and you also want to keep the bounce house clean on the inside. As long as you keep an eye on who and what goes in and out your injuries shouldn’t have to be a worry!
The number of injuries from bounce houses and similar attractions has been on the rise the past couple of years, and even though some of them are set up in amusement parks for everyone to use, the injuries at home can be easily avoided! Tell your children to always be careful when jumping around, and if they’re younger keep one eye on them at all times! Stay safe and have fun!
