How long do balloons last?

This is the ceiling in our living room. We took these balloons home from the open house at school LAST Friday and the kids promptly let go of them. We were able to recover them a few times thanks to tall friends and long strings, but the kids somehow managed to break the strings and now they are stuck. These are not the only balloons either. We have 2 in the girls room without any string at all, and one that seems to roam the house at will. Our ceilings are pretty high so we would have to lug out the ladder to reach said balloons, a project I rejected undertaking since they were just balloons and wouldn't last long. Well it is 8 days later and the only thing they have done is shifted position when the air conditioning kicks on. I wonder how long they will last...
