Safe Operation of Inflatables
We take safety very seriously at Bouncing Around The House. We follow all of Marylands Standards for the setup and operation of all of our inflatable rides. We are also members of Safe Inflatable Operators Training Organization. We take the time to instruct the operators of the inflatable ride on how to safely manage children and quickly assess the status of the ride.
What makes us safe?

U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission Bulletin
The consumer product safety commission issued a bulletin on May 23, 2001 following numerous incidences from inflatable operation throughout the U.S. involving broken bones, head injuries, contusions, abrasions and sprains from March 1999 to February 2001. The CPSC provides general inflatable safety recommendations for operators, owners, and renters.
Do Not Move the Equipment after it is setup.
1) Equipment is only to be operated within the manufacturer’s instructions and limitations. This means that we must keep the number of kids or weight on the attraction to within the limits specified on the rides Information Panel. We also must maintain the proper direction of travel if there is one involved such as in an obstacle course.
2) Lessee is solely responsible at all times to manage the children within the Equipment to reduce the possibility of injuries.
a) If children cannot keep their hands and feet to themselves they must be removed from the Equipment until they can control themselves within the Equipment.
b) There is to be absolutely NO FLIPPING OR CARTWHEELS within the Equipment. This puts the rest of the children at risk to be hit with a flying limb.
3) SOCKS MUST BE WORN in the Equipment at all times, this is done in order to maintain a sanitary environment within the bounce house. NO SHOES, NO BAREFEET, NO JEWELRY AND NO GLASSES
4) No climbing, hanging or pulling on the nets, sides, top or back of the Equipment.
5) In the event of lightning, winds gusting in excess of 25 mph, a tornado watch, a severe storm predicted within a 5 mile radius, fire, or other disturbance the following procedure must be followed:
a) The children shall be unloaded or evacuated safely from the inflatable amusement attraction immediately.
b) Once the children are in a safe location the attraction must be closed and secured immediately.
6) In the event of an injury contact Lessor immediately so that the appropriate measures can be taken.
7) DO NOT TAKE THIS TASK LIGHTLY. ANYTHING CAN HAPPEN IN JUST A MOMENT BUT MAY CHANGE SOMEONE’S LIFE FOREVER.
AT NO TIME SHOULD THE EQUIPMENT BE LEFT UNATTENDED!
FOOD, DRINKS, CANDY, ANIMALS, SHOES, Silly String or SHARP OBJECTS are NOT allowed in the Equipment at any time. Equipment that is set up on hard surfaces such as concrete or asphalt must be closely watched to prevent their moving. If the Equipment moves off the provided tarp, damage or staining may occur on the bottom of the unit.
If the Lessee chooses to deflate the Equipment prior to the arrival of the Lessor, it must be re-inflated before it is packed up. The Equipment will be inspected and receive a preliminary cleaning before removal.
