Renting Porta Potties for Disasters

When disaster strikes, cleaning up the mess is probably the first thing on your mind. However, there are more immediate questions to answer like, “How will we meet our basic needs while we recover?” Whether the disaster is a community-wide event or an individual disaster, you’ll need to ensure you can keep things sanitary while meeting critical needs like, eating and drinking, using the restroom, and washing up. We rent porta potties all the time for unexpected events, which gives us a unique perspective on the most common disasters that can necessitate renting portable toilets. Find out more about renting porta potties for disasters:

Widespread Flooding

When a region is affected by widespread flooding, the water is likely going to be unsafe to drink, which will require boiling tap water or bringing in bottled water. But what you may forget is that your regular plumbing may not work correctly as the area deals with excess water. As a result, the city/town or township may need to bring in portable toilets to provide residents with a place to use the bathroom. This is one scenario when renting porta potties for disasters makes a lot of sense, and one where a local portable toilet supplier can typically respond quickly to provide units on demand.

Plumbing Problems

If you have a plumbing problem in your home or business, you’ll need to bring in a plumber. While your water is turned off, you won’t have the ability to use the restroom. This means that your family, or your employees and customers will be without a place to go to the bathroom. That is, unless you bring in a portable restroom to use. Depending on the nature of the issue, this can be a quick outage or a prolonger one. Is your water will be off for an extended period? Renting a portable toilet is an easy way to continue to provide bathrooms until your regular facilities can be restored. If you have a disastrous plumbing problem, rent a portable toilet for your home, office, business, school, or church.

Frozen Pipes

If your pipes freeze and rupture in the winter, you’ll need to have your water turned off. Then the broken pipe can be replaced. In the meantime, renting porta potties for disasters like this is strongly recommended. Bringing in a portable restroom service allows you to maintain a safe nearby restroom option. It can stay no matter how long it takes to get your water restored and other frozen pipes thawed out.

Additionally, any damage that results, will need to be cleaned up as well. And if that damage is in the bathroom, that could delay getting back into the space to use it. Regardless of how long it takes for the fix and the damage clean up, a rental provides an on-site option. If your home bathroom is out of commission, renting a luxury restroom trailer with showers is a good idea. This will provide you with a place to not only use the toilet but also get clean.
