As lockdown restrictions continue and businesses remain closed or restricted to curbside pickup, many companies have had to shut down their washroom access to customers.
We all know the feeling of needing to go after sitting for an hour in a medical office, waiting for take-out food to be ready, or waiting through a pet’s three-hour surgery. When you’ve got to go, you’ve got to go, and having access to a washroom wherever you go adds a feeling of comfort and security.
Whether you own a medical office, restaurant, store, or another form of business, there are many benefits to setting up portable toilets for your customers:
Who cleans the portable toilet?
With any long-term rental, toilets are given a thorough cleaning once a week and include:
- Properly removing waste from the holding tank.
- Spraying down the unit with disinfectant.
- Wiping down the walls and major points of contact inside the unit.
- Restocking supplies like toilet paper, hand sanitizer, soap, and paper towels (if applicable).
All of these tasks will be done on-site by trained team members.
It is important to remember that companies will offer extra cleanings or additional units at an added cost with many portable toilet contracts. If you find that once a week cleaning or one unit on site is not enough due to high traffic, don’t be afraid to reach out to the company. Whenever renting portable toilets, especially if you are unfamiliar with the process, don’t be scared to ask what is included.
