Bouncy castles should be stored in a clean, dry, and well-ventilated area when not in use. Here are some considerations for storing bouncy castles:

1 Clean and dry the inflatable: Before storing the bouncy castle, ensure it is clean and completely dry. Wipe down the surface with a mild soap and water solution, removing any dirt or debris. Allow sufficient time for the inflatable to air dry, including any crevices or seams, to prevent the growth of mold or mildew.

2 Deflate the bouncy castle: Completely deflate the bouncy castle according to the manufacturer's instructions. Release the air slowly and ensure all the air has been expelled from the inflatable.

3 Remove any accessories: If the bouncy castle has removable accessories, such as slides or obstacles, detach and store them separately if possible. This helps prevent damage and makes storage more convenient.

4 Fold or roll the inflatable: Fold or roll the deflated bouncy castle carefully and neatly, following the manufacturer's instructions. This ensures a compact and manageable size for storage.

5 Use a storage bag or container: It is recommended to store the bouncy castle in a storage bag or container provided by the manufacturer. These bags are specifically designed to fit the inflatable and protect it from dust, moisture, and potential damage. If a storage bag is not available, use a clean and dry tarp or plastic sheet to cover the folded bouncy castle.

6 Choose an appropriate storage location: Find a suitable storage location that meets the following criteria:

  • Dry and well-ventilated: Choose an area free from excessive moisture, humidity, or dampness, as these can promote mold or mildew growth. Adequate ventilation helps prevent musty odors and allows for proper airflow.
  • Temperature control: Extreme temperature fluctuations can affect the durability of the inflatable. Avoid storing the bouncy castle in areas that experience significant temperature changes, such as garages or attics.
  • Protection from pests: Ensure the storage area is free from pests like rodents or insects that may cause damage to the inflatable.
  • Adequate space: Select a storage space that provides enough room to store the bouncy castle without excessive compression or folding that could cause stress on the material.
7 Regular inspections: Periodically check the stored bouncy castle for any signs of damage, such as tears, punctures, or mold growth. Promptly address any issues and make necessary repairs or contact the manufacturer for guidance.

By following these storage guidelines, you can help preserve the quality and extend the lifespan of your bouncy castle.
