3 Major Reasons Why Portable Toilets Are Essential for Construction & Renovation Projects


Are you working on planning a construction project in the near future? Do you want to make sure that you have everything ready and waiting for the beginning of the project? When planning to remodel your home or to add on a room, one of the first things you'll do is to make a list of supplies that will be needed to be able to do the project. Somewhere around this stage, you probably decide whether you're going to hire anyone to do at least some of the work or if you'll do everything yourself.

There are a number of things that you may put into consideration, but one thing that often gets forgotten is where any hired workers will go to relieve themselves. Although some people ignore this aspect entirely, it's not a good idea to do so for the following reasons:

Save time: If you don't have any portable toilets for the workers to use, many of them will drop what they're doing and go to the nearest convenience store or fast food restaurant to use the restroom there. Each time they have to relieve themselves, they could be gone for thirty minutes to an hour, depending on how far they have to travel and how busy the location is. This might not seem like much, at first, but collectively all of these trips can add days to the project completion time.

Better hygiene: Not all of the workers will abandon their work and disappear when they need to relieve themselves. Some of them will instead sneak off to a far corner of your yard and relieve themselves there. Having your property contaminated with human waste, even if it is only urine, is not going to be good for the health of you or your family. With the rental of portable toilets, the workers won't have any excuses to relieve themselves directly onto your property and everything will be much cleaner.

Less cleanup: Some kindhearted homeowners think that letting workers use the bathroom inside of their home is better than getting any portable toilets. At least, it seems that way until the bathroom area gets filled with things like drywall dust, paint splatters, and general construction grime that will get tracked in by the construction workers. There are also the matters of needing much more toilet paper than usual, your towels getting dirtied more quickly, and your soap being used up faster. Portable facilities come fully stocked with all of the bathroom tissue that's needed and you can either rent a handwashing station as well or the workers can use hand sanitizer.
