Enjoying your new bounce house?

It’s simply amazing, isn’t it?

Watching your kids play inside it and have a great time is a sight absolutely worth it!

Well, we want to see that happiness in you for a long time to come.

But you need to take care of it to last long after buying the bounce house. Don't worry! We have written a piece of content that will help you maintain your bounce house for years to come.

If you want your bounce house to last for many years, you will have to pay attention to its maintenance.

But there’s nothing to worry about. Maintaining a bounce house is not a very time-intensive task and can be done easily.

So, let’s cut to the chase and take a deep dive into maintaining your bounce house for residential and commercial use.

Step-1: Clean the Bounce House

Your children might be using the bounce house almost every weekend or more.

If we are spot on with the frequency, make sure you are spot on with the cleanliness of the bounce area.

Kids jumping in and out of the bounce house will kick dirt which might get inside the structure.

We highly recommend using a vacuum cleaner to get rid of the dust and small dirt particles.

Once that is done, make sure you clean the stubborn spots with the help of soap and scrubber. Check with the manufacturer before using any solution.

Make sure you clean the bounce house every time the kids are done playing in it.

Step-2: Sanitize the Bounce House

Washing the commercial bounce house will definitely help you get rid of the stubborn stains, but it’s very important to sanitize the structure as well.

It will help you keep your kids away from harmful germs when they are busy playing.

Well, there is a wide variety of sanitizing fluids and solutions available in the market and you might get confused while purchasing one. So, make sure you consult the bounce house manufacturer before buying a bounce house sanitizer.

To give you a slight idea of the sanitizers, you may use the solution used for cleaning wrestling and gymnastic mats. Before applying the solution, test it on a small area.

The process of sanitizing the bounce house is quite simple. All you have to do it spray the entire structure and not spare the corners.

Step-3: Dry before Storage

Done with washing and sanitizing? Leave the bounce house to completely dry. This will keep the excessive sanitizer and washing solution from pooling in spots.

Drying the structure is important as it will prevent mildew growth. You can even accelerate this process by using a leaf blower. This process is important as it will help the bounce house fabric not get stained in the long run.

Once you are done with all the above processes, you are set to store the bounce house away for next weekend!

Professional Tip:

Checking for air leakage can help you avoid any fatal accidents on the bounce house.

Furthermore, you can take these measures to make sure your bounce houses are safe. Kids playing inside the bounce house will not notice that the structure is losing air. Therefore, we highly recommend you to be vigilant. Jumping on a deflating bounce house causes major fabric and seam damage as a result of which you might have to buy a new bounce house!
