After being in the portable restroom business for as long as we have, we’ve heard all the misconceptions about porta potties imaginable. These are some of the most common perceptions we face… as well as the realities around them.
The biggest myth regarding portable toilets is that they’re dirty and smelly. This perception usually results from a bad experience that someone had early in life and seems to be an unshakable belief.
Now, while we’re not saying that every porta john from every company will be squeaky clean, our portable toilets are well-maintained and impeccably cleaned before events (or at regular intervals for bathrooms that are permanent fixtures at parks and other outdoor venues). The result is a cleaner, better smelling portable toilet that you won’t be worried about using or letting your kids use. Every unit we rent is thoroughly cleaned from top to bottom by experienced staff. And every rental we contract is treated with the same attention to detail, whether you’re renting two units for a single-day neighborhood party or 100 units for a weekend-long community festival.
Most people assume that portable toilets just have the basics – a non-flushable toilet, a urinal, and a hand sanitizer pump. However, portable bathrooms have evolved over the years to include additional amenities that usually surprise people.
For instance, an Elite unit porta potty includes a flushing toilet, fresh water sink, wall mirror, and shelves for belongings. These amenities combined with a more spacious interior make using the Elite unit a more comfortable and pleasant experience for all ages.
Luxury restroom trailers take amenities a step further by also boasting elegant décor like wooden cabinetry, recessed lighting, accent rugs, hanging wall art, faux plants, and more high-end items. When you step inside one, you can forget that you’re even using a portable toilet! In fact, when we take these to tradeshows it’s common for people to stop to take photos to share them with friends and family members because they’re so flabbergasted at the amenities include.
Everyone has had an experience using a portable toilet in the summer heat and feeling like they were stepping inside an oven instead of a bathroom.
But, luxury portable restrooms have climate-controlled interiors, which makes them pleasant to use in both the summer heat and winter cold. This feature is so popular that many brides and grooms-to-be will rent these for outdoor weddings to give the wedding party a comfortable place to get ready before the ceremony and fresh up and during the reception.
Many people think porta johns are just for use at parks, along trails, during sports festivals, and for free community events where costs need to be kept low.
