Although portable toilets are convenient and quite useful, they are not always sanitary, especially if hundreds of people are using them in a single day. If you own a portable toilet rental business, you may be looking for ways to make the use of your service healthier and more sanitary. Here are three ways to make portable toilets more sanitary for consumers.
Disposable Toilet Seat Covers
In most public bathrooms across the country, a box of disposable paper toilet seat covers are mounted to the wall behind the toilets. The same could be done for portable toilets, except that you could invest in and install biodegradable paper toilet seat covers. This way, every user of every one of your portable toilets can have a clean surface on which to park his or her derriere. The biodegradable toilet seat covers also break down in the tanks of the portable toilets, thereby decreasing any issues with the toilet seat covers blocking the suction hoses of the cleaning trucks.
Hand Sanitizer Dispensers
There is a trend that currently places hand sanitizers in porta-potties. Most often, these dispensers are inside each stall and located to the left or right of the stall doors. You could also install hand sanitizer dispensers on the outside of each portable toilet, either to a side wall or to the door. When you provide the hand sanitizer, users of the portable toilets have a way to kill germs on their hands when soap, water and a sink are not available.
Portable Sinks and Soap Dispensers
If you do not already offer portable sinks as a service for your customers, then you can purchase and begin to rent out these amenities. These portable sinks stand on their own, connect to a water hose and provide clean, running water into a quad of sinks. The used water runs out the drains onto the ground, or buckets can be placed underneath to catch the dirty water.
If your customers are very worried about the dirty water's impact on the environment, drainage hoses can be connected to drains and the used water can run out into the nearest street gutter or sewer. When you want to include soap dispensers as well, these portable sinks often have areas built into them where soap dispensers can attach and provide that necessary, germ-fighting substance commonly used after every bathroom break. If your customers have a way to run a water hose to each quad of sinks, then they can rent these sinks along with the toilets and provide visitors with a thoroughly clean and sanitary outdoor toileting experience.
