These are a step above the event rentals but with the same basic concept. Instead of renting inflatables and choosing some employees to man them this company targets specific carnivals fairs and public events like the California State Fair. They set up a permanent location at these events pop up a large inflatable and people purchase tickets to enjoy the inflatable area for a certain period of time. For this company the wear and tear on the inflatables is less sporadic and more of a full time concern. However they make a constant stream of money during the events unlike the one-day rental options.
The DVD Ant Farm has directions for creating your personal inflatables using plastic bags and an iron. The low technological barrier to building inflatables is additional lowered by DIY instruction sets like the Inflatocookbook. The inflatable party rentals industry is relatively premature when compared to other industries for party equipment and supplies rental. For instance there is no authoritative bounce house safety organization to control the inflatable rental industry. The top safety regulatory organizations are the states which designate the safety rules for that particular area and if there are no such rules then they follow those set by the ASTM.
Next you should tightly secure the blower(s) to the inflatable tube(s) and close any other inflation tubes. Now you should check to see if the location has an electricity outlet with a GFI box. Refer back to the blower manufacturers owners manual to check the correct electricity requirements extension cord type generator information etc. Now once the electricity requirements have been satisfied you can inflatable the product. After the product is fully inflated you will need to fasten all of the tie downs using the correct required stakes to anchor the inflatable into position.
