Running an outdoor event? Here’s how to keep your porta potty rentals clean and hygienic


porta potty rental for event

Whether it’s a sports event, festival, reunion, or wedding, your outdoor event needs portable restroom facilities. And no matter when or where your event is, you need to keep them clean and pleasant for guests. How do you do that? It’s not as intimidating as it may sound. Here are 5 ways to keep your event’s portable toilet rentals clean.

1. Have enough units:

The first step in hygiene is to make sure that your portable toilets aren’t going to be overused. And the first step in doing that is to order enough porta potty units in advance. Plan according to the number of guests you expect to have — and reserve enough porta potty rentals to accommodate them all. We recommend a minimum of 2 portable toilets for every 100 guests. The amount of units can also depend on the length of your event — a longer event needs more units.

If you’d like guidance on how many units you need at your next event, reach out to the SOS Toilets team at info@sostoilet.com. We’re always available and happy to help.

2. Stock hygiene supplies:

Keep your facilities stocked with adequate tissues, hand sanitizer, soap, clean water, paper towels, and sanitizing spray or wipes. You might also consider investing in a hand-washing station to go along with your units.

Keeping these supplies available and handy will help you ensure hygiene and keep your units clean and comfortable. Patrons always appreciate having these available and are happy to keep things sanitary if they can. It will also make it easier for staff and attendants to upkeep and maintain your units for the duration of event.

3. Prevent odors:

Odor prevention plays a big role when it comes to portable restrooms. Keep your restrooms smelling neutral and pleasant to keep your guests comfortable. Let your porta potties air out throughout the event — both by selecting well-ventilated units and by leaving the doors ajar when not in use. It’s smart to stock air fresheners like Febreeze and good-smelling cleaning products in your units to keep them pleasant. Having an open container of baking soda in the corner of your units can also help absorb and neutralize unpleasant odors and keep your area smelling fresh.

4. Have restroom attendants:

Have staff available at various points throughout the day to clean and freshen up when necessary. The frequency of these cleanings should depend on the amount of guests and how frequently the units are used. In any case, a quick cleaning can do wonders for your units, and mid-day sprucing up prevents buildup at the end of the event. Keep cleaning supplies handy so staff can clean and sanitize quickly and efficiently.

5. Strategic placement:

Where you place your units plays a huge role. Find locations that are flat, airy, and out of the full sun. (The heat tends to intensify odors, making it less pleasant for patrons and guests nearby.) Make sure porta potties are available and accessible for guests throughout the grounds. Avoid wet, bumpy, or hard-to-reach areas, and place ADA-compliant units on solid, level ground.
