Summer is here and it’s the season for festivals, family reunions, and other multi-day events full of fun. Most multi-day events are held in rural spaces for crowds of larger numbers. This means that restrooms usually aren’t on-site and the host will need to order porta-potties for the event.
If you are the host of a multi-day event, make sure that while you have portable restrooms on-site, you keep them clean and avoid spreading the stigma that surrounds the porta-potty rental industry.
Here’s a look at some of the best ways you can ensure your portable restrooms remain clean throughout your multi-day event.
Plan Your Maintenance Ahead of Time
If you know your event is going to be large and that people are going to constantly be in and out of your portable restrooms, it’s always a good idea to plan extra maintenance ahead of time.
In most situations like construction sites where portable restrooms are used by smaller groups of people, maintenance happens once a week.
However, if you’re hosting a large multi-day event like a music festival, your portable restrooms will see a lot of use in a short period of time.
It can be easy for porta-potties to require servicing early, so make sure that any porta-potty rental company you work with is prepared to be on-call for your unexpected maintenance needs.
Consider Your Placement
Placing your bathrooms in the right spot is one of the best ways to get your cleanliness off to a great start.
- Avoid areas in direct sunlight. This can make your restroom hot, humid, and very uncomfortable
- Place your porta-potties on as solid a surface as possible where guests are less likely to track mud and dirt into your facilities
Hire Bathroom Attendants
Volunteer and paid bathroom attendants can help keep your restrooms fresh during a multi-day event. While they won’t be responsible for any deep cleaning or maintenance services, they can still help in the following ways:
- Inspect the cleanliness of the bathrooms and call for maintenance services when required
- Refill supplies like paper towels, toilet paper, soap dispensers, hand sanitizer
- Crack the door open between users to welcome fresh air into your restroom and usher stale air out
Equip Your Toilets With Hygiene Supplies
Giving your guests the opportunity to clean up in the restroom will ultimately keep your porta-potties fresher, and longer.
Some hygienic supplies you should never leave out of a portable restroom rental are:
- Fresh soap
- Garbage cans
- Hand sanitizer
- Disposable towels
- Air fresheners
All of these hygienic products, combined with hand-washing stations spread throughout your restroom area will help keep your portable restrooms sanitary between maintenance and your overall event cleaner.
