You may decide to rent a bounce house since they are so popular. However, before you do, it is a good idea to consider safety. If a child is hurt while on your property in Maryland, you could be liable, and bounce houses are notoriously dangerous.

According to Healthychildren.org, one of the leading causes for bounce house injuries is improper installation. If a bounce house is not proper installed, it can collapse, move or be picked up by the wind. This can lead to serious injuries. In addition, the nature of a bounce house also increases the risks of injuries from falls.

If you are insistent upon getting one for your child's party, then you need to be aware of how to ensure it is as safe as possible. You should understand all operating instructions and follow all safety guidelines. You need to ensure it is proper installed as well. Ask questions when you order it, including asking about safety and past accidents. It is also a good idea to get inspection records.

Once you have it set up, you need to be vigilant about having an adult watch over the children as they play. Someone needs to enforce rules and remove children who are not obeying them. You should also make parents aware there will be a bounce house so if they do not want their child to play in it, they can let you know.
