How to Keep Portable Toilets Clean and Hygienic

Portable toilets are a must-have for any outdoor event, but it’s important to maintain high standards for your guests and attendees. Portable toilets haven’t had the best reputation over the years, but nowadays there’s no reason why they can’t be just as comfortable, hygienic and easy to use as indoor facilities.

Staying on top of maintenance and hygiene will ensure that your facilities stay fresh, clean and pleasant for your guests, so read on to find out more.

Odour control products

Products to prevent and control odours can make all the difference, ensuring that your units stay hygienic and fresh. Most odour control products are deep blue in colour and they contain chemicals to mask odour with fragrance and eliminate odour producing bacteria.

Allow cubicles time to air out

If your portable toilets are subject to a lot of use, then odour control products might not be enough. It’s important to give each cubicle time to air out in between uses, ideally for around 30 minutes several times a day. Try to prop doors open where possible and always allow the units to air out overnight.

Ensure you order enough units

Having the right amount of units is vital to help keep your portable toilets clean and hygienic, so always order slightly more than you need if in doubt. Experts recommend having at least one portable toilet for every 100 guests, but if it’s an event like an outdoor wedding then you might want to order more to improve guests’ experience.

Professional servicing

If you’re running an event then you won’t have time to stay on top of cleaning and replenishing the facilities, so professional servicing is a must (especially if the event is running over several days or weeks). Professional cleaning services will ensure that all touch points are disinfected, hand wash and toilet roll are replenished and odour control products are replaced.
