With the weather getting warmer, most people are beginning to spend more and more time outside. This time of the year is also full of outdoor events, such as Memorial Day barbecues and fireworks displays. If you’re hosting an outdoor party, you’ll need to consider what to do for restrooms. For parties with no access to indoor restrooms or for large parties where a home restroom won’t be enough, portable toilets can be a good solution. We’ve compiled a list of the top questions people ask when renting portable toilets for parties to help get you the information you need.
1. What are My Options?
When renting portable toilets, you have a few different options. The standard units have a roomy interior and will include hand sanitizer and two tissue rolls. More tissue rolls can be stocked for longer events. These units also have a translucent roof for better lighting and an occupancy signal. The VIP units have these amenities and are much more spacious than standard units. They also include a foot pump with a flushable tank and a fresh water sink for hand washing. VIP units will include coat/purse hooks, a convenience shelf, and a waste paper basket.
The final option for portable toilet rentals is the handicap unit. It’s important to have enough handicap units to accommodate your handicap guests. In addition to the normal amenities, handicap units include wheelchair accessible toilets and an oversized, self-closing door. These units also feature more than 16 square feet of open interior floor space for easy navigation.
2. Can I Use Them for More Formal Parties?
If you’re hosting a more formal affair, such as a wedding reception or engagement party, you might think that portable toilets aren’t nice enough to fit in with your décor. However, luxury model portable toilets can provide the perfect option for nicer events. These luxury models include amenities such as mirrors, air conditioning, and even wood floors. They also appear nicer than traditional portable toilets, often as trailers with multiple stalls and more space for your guests.
3. Are They Sanitary?
Many people worry that portable toilets are not clean or sanitary. However, proper maintenance will ensure that your portable toilets are perfectly clean. Some options for portable toilets even include a flushing option for added sanitation. All portable toilets include a hand sanitizer dispenser and some even include hand-washing stations. These amenities will ensure that each user has a sanitary experience.
4. How are They Cleaned?
In order to feel confident that portable toilets are sanitary, you might want to know exactly how portable toilets are cleaned in between uses. After an event, portable toilets are pumped and vacuumed completely dry. Your rental company will then add five gallons of additives to completely disinfect the portable toilet. Additionally, they will use big brushes and spray bottles with chemicals to scrub the floors, walls, toilet seats, and urinals. When you receive a portable toilet from a rental company, you can be confident that it has been completely scrubbed down and disinfected.
5. Will They Freeze in Cold Weather?
This time of year, the weather can be unpredictable. If you’re hosting a party in the spring, you never know what the weather will be like. One day it’s 90 degrees, the next day it drops to 40. New England has even seen snow in October multiple times in recent years. For this reason, it can be difficult to predict the temperatures for outdoor events during this time of the year. Therefore, you might worry that the water in your portable toilets will freeze if the weather gets cold. However, portable toilets will not freeze, as a non-toxic solution will be added to the water to keep it from freezing. Additionally, proper placement and frequent servicing will help avoid this issue. For added comfort on a cold day, you can even add small portable heaters inside your portable toilets.
6. How Many Will I Need?
If you’ve decided to rent portable toilets for your party, you’ll need to decide on a number. There are a few different factors that will impact this number. The most obvious factor is the number of people that will be using them. If your party will have a lot of children, you will need even more portable toilets. If you’re serving alcohol, you’ll need more portable toilets than parties without alcohol. If you are unsure how many portable toilets to rent, you can provide your rental company with this information and they will make a recommendation for you.
