The bathroom is one of the dirtiest places in the house, with the toilet seat having over 235,000 colony-forming units (CFU). And this is in an average household as well; just imagine how germy portable bathrooms can be! We can’t stop porta potties from getting dirty, but there are ways to keep them tidy and decrease the growth of bacteria. That way, not only do event guests feel more comfortable using these units, but there’s also a lower chance of them getting sick. Below are some tips to make sure your portable bathroom rental units stay clean.

Rent Enough Units

It’s tempting to skimp on portable bathroom rentals so you can save some money. But if you don’t order enough, then the units can easily become overused and dirty within a short period.

In general, you’ll want at least one unit per 100 people. However, some factors that affect this number, so it’s worth discussing with the company to get an accurate estimate of how many units to rent.

Keep the Portable Bathrooms Well Stocked

A proper bathroom has plenty of toilet paper, paper towels, soap, and hand sanitizer. If any of these things run out, then your attendees will have an unpleasant and unsanitary time.

Assign staff members to keep an eye on these things. Depending on how busy the event is, you may want to have them check the units every few hours, or maybe even every hour.

Rent Portable Hand Wash Sinks

Washing your hands is crucial to keeping germs at bay. Having portable hand wash stations outside of your portable bathrooms can really save the day.

Again, make sure that these sinks are well stocked with soap and paper towels to have maximum effectiveness.

Get Luxury Restroom Trailers

Luxury restroom trailers have all the amenities of real bathrooms, including sinks with running water and flushable toilets. They also have nice lighting, mirrors, laminate flooring, and climate control.

Running water helps a lot with sanitary conditions, plus these trailers add a touch of class to your event. It’s a win-win situation.

Use a Company With Extensive Services

Some portable bathroom companies will only deliver and pick up their units, nothing more. But others, like us at FusionSite, offer extensive services to ensure your units are sanitary.

For instance, we have a 10-point checklist that our service technicians use. They’ll also service them regularly, according to your schedule.

Not to mention, we always make sure our porta potties are delivered clean and ready to go.
