Differences between Commercial and Residential Inflatables

Picking out the right Inflatable can be an important decision for any buyer. Whether you’re wanting a bounce house, moonwalk, jumper, or a bouncy castle, there are thousands of varieties and sizes in the market today at competing costs. At KUOYE Inflatables we’d like to answer the major questions you have in-order to find the right bounce house. The first step to buying anything is knowing the purpose of your purchase. We recommend buying Inflatables based on how much use you want out of your unit, whether its buying an Inflatable for a one time birthday party or for a rental business. There are two types of Inflatables, commercial & residential. Residential Inflatables are bounce houses you find in large stores such as Walmart & Toys-R-Us which tend to be cheaper in quality & cost, while commercial grade Inflatables are manufactured by companies like KUOYE Inflatables which have longevity and are durable. Below we’ll list a few differences to consider when purchasing either commercial or residential.
