Once you start running your bounce house rental business, you’ll realize how much paperwork and “other” stuff you have to do to keep the business running and to help it to thrive. With all of these things you have to do, they can make one believe that setting up the moonwalks is the least of your worries. The truth of the matter is, however, that setting up your moonwalks can actually be a bit tricky if you don’t know how to do it correctly. One of the biggest things you have to pay attention to is the ground that you are setting the bounce house up on.
The bounce house is going to be taking a lot of punishment, and it is important to realize that the ground underneath the bounce house has to be up to the task of handling everything that the bounce house is going to be put through. Let’s start first by examining set up locations that are filled with grass. You may believe the grass is the best place to set up moonwalks on, but it may not be. Take a look at the grass that is growing in a location. If it is dried out, chances are good that the soil underneath his uncared for and that you may have a very difficult time hammering your stakes into the ground. The best type of grassy location to set up your moonwalk on should be filled with healthy, shiny looking grass. This grass should be easy to hammer the stakes into. You may want to consider laying a tarp down on top of the grass before you set up the bounce house. The tarp will absorb much of the friction that occurs between the bounce house and the grass which preserves not only the bounce house but also the grass.
You can set moonwalks up on concrete, but it’s important to make sure that you find the most flat and level piece of land you can if you are setting up on pavement. You won’t be driving stakes into concrete, but instead will be using heavy sandbags which is why having a level location is very important. If the ground is slanted underneath the bounce house, is much more likely to slide in a direction that it likely should not go. Remember: finding a good set up location is extremely important and will not only help to ensure that your bounce house stays in good shape for a long time, but will also help to make sure the your client has the best experience possible.
