When you think of a porta-potty, your first reaction is probably to be grossed out. However, many misconceptions give portable restrooms a bad rep when they are actually a great portable sanitation solution! #FirstClassRentals

What are some of the most common misconceptions about portable restrooms? 

Most people share the same beliefs about portable toilets and that they’re unsanitary. You’ll be surprised to find that portable restrooms are a clean solution. Even as a well maintained portable sanitation product, porta-potties come with these common misconceptions:

  1. They’re Unsanitary
  2. Not Environmentally Friendly
  3. Too Informal for Special Events

1) They’re Unsanitary

Probably the biggest misconception about portable toilet units is that they’re not as clean as regular restrooms. Most people think porta-potties are unsanitary in nature. In reality, toilet seats are made of materials that are much easier to clean and disinfect.

2) Not Environmentally Friendly

Some people believe that portable restroom trailers take a bigger toll on the environment than a regular bathroom. In reality, portable toilets feature effective waste disposal without flushing toilets, whereas residential toilets take 1.6 gallons per flush. A large event would save thousands of gallons of water by using portable toilet rentals and holding tanks

3) Too Informal for Special Events

When attending a classy event, no one pictures a standard, dinky porta-potty. This is why luxurious portable restrooms are available for special occasions like weddings, corporate events, and more. Luxury restroom trailers come in a variety of sizes and with handicap accessible options and provide the comfort of home.

Pro Tip: Portable restroom trailers can be decorated to suit any event and remain out of the way.
