Guests and workers who don’t have access to proper indoor facilities will appreciate the convenience of portable bathrooms. However, some individuals may not be familiar with these practical facilities beyond seeing them on the street or at outdoor events. Many people’s preconceptions stem from this inexperience. That’s why we’ve created this helpful article detailing some common misconceptions about portable restrooms.
Portable Restrooms Are Unsanitary
People may have had unpleasant experiences with portable restrooms at some point in their lives, which can taint their entire perception of them. Other people believe that portable bathrooms can never be as clean as indoor equivalents. However, porta-potties use a material that’s easy to clean and disinfect between usage. Even better, if you rent from a reputable company such as Floods Royal Flush, you can rest assured that each unit will be immaculate and routinely serviced. Moreover, you can take care of each portable restroom the same way you would an indoor one to keep it sanitary.
They’re Not Environmentally Friendly
Many folks believe that portable bathrooms damage the environment; however, this is not the case. Compared to indoor toilets, which can use up to 1.6 gallons with every flush, portable restrooms are extremely water efficient. In fact, portable bathrooms save 125 million gallons of fresh water each day, or 45 billion gallons per year, according to the Portable Sanitation Association.
Furthermore, porta-potties are frequently placed in public parks and other outdoor spaces; having a convenient restroom in these types of locations prevents the surrounding environment from absorbing dangerous human waste or trash that someone would otherwise throw outside.
You Can’t Use Them for Classy Events
It’s understandable that you may not envision a line of porta-potties at your posh outdoor wedding or black-tie affair. And naturally, you may not think there’s any room for mobile bathrooms at more formal events. But renting deluxe restroom trailers can provide your guests with all the creature comforts of home in a facility that blends in seamlessly with the rest of the backdrop. Luxurious restroom trailers are available in several sizes and with handicap-accessible choices, and they offer conveniences such as running water, lighting, various toiletries, and multiple stalls.
