How to apply the vinyl patch on a damaged inflatable unit?

As you use your inflatable, situations may occur that require you to temporarily patch your inflatable. So, what is the best way to patch the tear?

  1. Clean the Area: First, keep the bounce house inflated so the damaged area is smooth. Clean the damaged area of the inflatable to ensure the surface is free from dirt and debris. Let dry.

  2. Cut a Vinyl Patch: Next, cut the patch a little bigger than the tear with rounded edges, make sure it generously covers the damaged vinyl area.

  3. Apply Adhesive Glue: Put adhesive glue from the vinyl repair kit on both the area around the tear and the back of the vinyl patch. Apply the glue evenly, covering all the edges.

  4. Position the Patch: Place the vinyl patch over the damaged area and press it firmly to create a good seal. 

  5. Allow to Dry: Let the glue dry for at least a few hours before using the inflatable again.

How to repair the commercial inflatables

How to repair the commercial inflatables

Repairing inflatables typically involves a few simple steps:

Step 1: Identify the Damage
Thoroughly inspect the inflatable to locate any tears, punctures, or leaks. This may involve inflating the inflatable and using soapy water to check for air bubbles, which indicate leaks.

Step 2: Clean and Dry the Area
Clean the damaged area with mild soap and water to remove dirt or debris. Allow the area to dry completely before proceeding with the repair.

Step 3: Patch the Damage
Apply a patch specifically designed for inflatable repairs over the damaged area. Make sure the patch is slightly larger than the damaged area to ensure proper coverage. Press the patch firmly onto the surface, smoothing out any wrinkles or air bubbles.

Step 4: Apply Adhesive
If using a patch that requires adhesive, apply a thin, even layer of adhesive to both the patch and the inflatable surface. Allow the adhesive to become tacky before pressing the patch onto the surface.

Step 5: Allow Time to Cure/Allow the Adhesive to Dry
Once the patch is in place, you'll need to allow the adhesive to dry completely. This may take several hours, depending on the type of adhesive you are using. It's important to avoid using the inflatable until the adhesive is completely dry, as this could cause the patch to come loose. Wait at least 1 hour before inflating again.

Step 6: Test the Repair
Once the patch has cured, inflate the inflatable and check for any signs of leakage. If the repair holds, the inflatable is ready to be used again.

It's important to use repair materials specifically designed for inflatables and follow the manufacturer's instructions carefully to ensure a successful repair. If the damage is extensive or beyond your ability to repair, consider seeking professional assistance.

What is the life expectancy of a bounce house?

What is the life expectancy of a bounce house?

The life expectancy of a bounce house can vary based on several factors. Let’s bounce into the details:

  1. Quality of Construction:

    • The materials and construction methods used during manufacturing play a significant role in determining a bounce house’s lifespan.
    • Commercial-grade inflatables are designed with durability in mind, incorporating heavy-duty stitching, robust fabrics, and reinforcements at high-stress areas.
  2. Proper Care and Maintenance:

    • Regular cleaning, repairs, and ensuring the bounce house is completely dry before storage are crucial.
    • Using a protective tarp and storing it in a cool, dry place can prevent mold and wear from the elements.
    • Always follow the manufacturer’s instructions for care and schedule inspections for potential issues after each use.
  3. Frequency and Type of Use:

    • How often you use the bounce house and the type of events it’s used for impact its lifespan.
    • Residential models typically last anywhere from 2 to 3 years with proper care.
    • Commercial bounce houses, designed for more frequent use and higher traffic, can last 3 to 7 years with sustained maintenance.

Remember, safety guidelines and manufacturer warranties protect and prolong the use of these bouncy havens. So, whether you’re bouncing at a party or a rental event, take good care of your inflatable fun! 🎉🏰

How to clean and disinfect your inflatables?

How to clean and disinfect your inflatables?

Cleaning and disinfecting inflatables is essential to maintain hygiene and prevent the spread of germs. Here's a general guide on how to clean and disinfect your inflatables:


  1. Remove Debris:

    • Before cleaning, remove any dirt, sand, or debris from the inflatable surface. You can use a soft brush or a damp cloth to wipe away loose particles.
  2. Mild Soap and Water:

    • Prepare a solution of mild soap (dishwashing soap or a gentle liquid soap) and lukewarm water.
    • Dip a soft sponge or cloth into the soapy water and gently scrub the entire surface of the inflatable. Pay special attention to areas with visible stains or dirt.
  3. Rinse Thoroughly:

    • Use clean water to rinse off the soap thoroughly. You can use a hose or a bucket of clean water for this purpose.
    • Ensure that all soap residue is completely removed, as it can attract dirt and affect the material over time.
  4. Dry Completely:

    • Allow the inflatable to dry completely before storing or using it again. Air drying is preferable, but you can also use a soft, absorbent cloth to speed up the process.


  1. Disinfectant Solution:

    • Prepare a disinfectant solution by mixing water with a suitable disinfectant. Options include a diluted bleach solution (1 part bleach to 10 parts water) or a commercial disinfectant recommended for use on inflatable materials.
  2. Apply Disinfectant:

    • Using a sponge or cloth, apply the disinfectant solution to the entire surface of the inflatable. Make sure to cover all areas, including seams and corners.
  3. Allow Contact Time:

    • Allow the disinfectant to sit on the inflatable surface for the recommended contact time specified on the disinfectant product. This allows the disinfectant to effectively kill any harmful microorganisms.
  4. Rinse and Dry:

    • Rinse the inflatable thoroughly with clean water to remove any residual disinfectant.
    • Allow the inflatable to dry completely before storing or using it again.

Tips and Precautions:

  • Read Manufacturer's Instructions:

    • Always refer to the manufacturer's guidelines and recommendations for cleaning and disinfecting your specific inflatable product.
  • Avoid Harsh Chemicals:

    • Do not use abrasive or harsh cleaning chemicals that could damage the inflatable material.
  • Regular Maintenance:

    • Perform regular cleaning and disinfection to prevent the buildup of dirt and germs.
  • Proper Storage:

    • Store your inflatables in a clean, dry area to prevent mold and mildew growth.

By following these steps and considering the specific care instructions provided by the manufacturer, you can help ensure the longevity and cleanliness of your inflatables.

Useful Tips - How to store your inflatables properly

Useful Tips - How to store your inflatables properly

Bounce houses and blowers need to be stored in a thick and durable bag that will protect it from dirt, dust, and bugs and keep it secure while being transported from one place to another.

Additionally, it is important to store the bounce house and blower in either your garage, shed, basement or any other place that will protect the bounce house and blower from the elements and keep it from water and heat.

Here comes the questions - How do I Fold a Bounce House to Fit in That Small Bag?
This does not have to be one of those frustrating purchases that never folds back down into its original form, however it does take some consideration to make sure all the air is out and that it stays folded tightly and compact. Below are some steps to help you visualize how to best fold and roll a basic bounce house for storage.
1. Deflate the bounce house so that most of the air is out. Once it is generally flattened, fold in all the tubes and slides that stick out so that it takes the general shape of a square or rectangle.
2. Depending upon the size of your storage bag, fold the large rectangle in either thirds or halves to reach the desired height. As you fold, tuck in any sides or netting that may come out of the sides. At this point, you should have one long strip or rectangular shape.
3.  Recruit someone to help with this next part. With you on one end of the rectangle, slowly squeezing and rolling the end as tightly as possible, have your helper roll right in front of you to get all the air out of inflatable parts ahead.
Keep rolling until it is a tightly rolled burrito-shape and lift into the bag.

How do I roll an inflatable?

You've successfully used your inflatable, but now it's time to roll it back up. What's the best way to roll up your inflatable? While everyone has their own slightly different method, we present here the standard method of rolling an inflatable.

1. Deflate the inflatable, and make sure all deflation zippers are open to allow air to escape.

2. Begin by folding the inflatable into even thirds or quarters (the final width should be as wide as your storage bag).

3. Once you have the inflatable folded into a manageable thirds or quarters, begin rolling the inflatable towards the open deflation zipper.

4. As you roll the inflatable, continue to depress the air out in front of the roll to assure a tight, even roll.

How long does Omega Inflatables take to ship

How long does Omega Inflatables take to ship

There are three commonly used modes of transportation in international trade: sea, air, and rail.

If one or two bounce houses, we can only ship by air, it takes around 7-10 days, as we all know, the commercial inflatables are heavy duty, so the shipping cost is really expensive, often close to the value of the units, we generally do not suggest shipping by air, but if you need units urgently and can accept the high shipping cost, we will arrange air shipping for you.

The most common and cheapest way is to get multiple inflatables for sale and ship by sea, which will help you save cost, sea shipping takes around 20-45 days(depends on your location). If sea shipping, we recommend ordering inflatables at least 3-4 pieces( amount over $4000).

Here is the shipping process:

1. The Water Slides/Bounce Houses will be delivered to our shipping broker in Guangzhou.

2. Our shipping broker books shipment and deal with papers works.
Meanwhile, the broker on your end will contact you for paper works(they will help you throughout the whole import process).

3. Get the shipping papers and wait for a period of time.

4. When the ship arrives, the broker will notify you and send you a bill: duties and port charges(show us the bill and we will check and avoid overcharge).

5. Pay off the bill and pick up your commercial inflatables(we have insurance for the your order, if there is any damage on the packages, take detailed pictures and we will claim against the damage.

The sea shipping process is simple, all you need to do is the Steps 2 and Step 5. Then you will save costs and make profits.
