Long Lines to Use Portable Restroom Trailers Can Be Avoided

There are places where long lines are expected… Disney World, sporting events, state/county fairs. Porta potties, before a race is about to begin, are not in the category of acceptable places. Last weekend we ran in a 10K. While we were there we experienced the perfect example of why proper planning for a large crowd is required. Ten minutes before the race was scheduled to start, we noticed an unbelievably long line in front of the porta potties. We knew all those people would never get through the line by the time the race was to start. We were right! While half of the line had to run to another set of portable restroom trailers on the other side of the grounds, the other half stayed in line. After what seemed like forever (a half an hour), we were on our way. Even though the coordinator apologized and promised to have a better solution next year, the damage was already done. People were not happy. Embarrassment, along with the threat of injury from waiting around and not being properly warmed up, on top of the risk of disgruntled runners not returning next year is incentive for a better solution. Fortunately, there are portable restroom trailers designed for large crowds that are a quicker, cleaner, easier, and more affordable solution. Did I already mention quicker…? Who says being the talk of the race has to be a bad thing?

Portable Restroom Trailers for Your Spring Event

Daylight savings this past weekend has really put me into the spring mood. The days are getting longer, the weather is getting nicer, and I am ready to get outside for some great spring events! If you are someone who plans an event in the springtime and you aren’t already in full organizer mode I hope these signs of spring have kicked you into action. Something that every outdoor barbeque, fair, concert or wedding will need this spring is portable restrooms. The kind of event you are putting on should determine the kind of facilities you provide. For a wedding you may want to choose a luxury restroom trailer to make your guests feel as comfortable as possible. If you have a multiple day event like a cross-state bike ride or a music festival you may need to provide shower trailers. Find something that fits your practical needs as well as the style of the event. The placement of your portable restroom trailers is another thing to consider. For a smaller event such as a wedding it is probably more practical to group your bathrooms in one area. For a large event such as a fair you may need to spread restrooms throughout the location to provide easy access for everyone. Consider the placement of other parts of your event and work out the best place for a portable restroom for your specific situation. One of the simplest ways to avoid a problem is to consider how many people will attend your event. You need to be sure you have enough restrooms to accommodate everyone. It is always better to anticipate more guests to be sure you won’t have any overcrowded bathrooms. Although the restrooms are important, when planning your spring event spend as much time as possible don’t neglect thinking about the actual event itself, not just the restrooms! Carefully consider all the details before choosing a portable restroom trailer provider who is capable of handling maintenance and cleaning during the event. Taking a short amount of time to think about these things beforehand will eliminate some of the pressure so that you’ll be free to enjoy the results of all your hard work at an awesome event!

Keeping Beachgoers Safe

Spring Break is right around the corner, and that means many of us will enjoy a few days away from the cold, lying on the beach in the sun, sipping a frozen drink topped with fruit and an umbrella.The only thing that could possibly ruin this ideal vacation would be ending up stuck in your hotel room, nursing a bad stomach illness.It's happened to all of us at one time or another… and we usually blame it on something we ate. But according to a new study just published in Epidemiology, that stomach ache may actually have been caused by the sand you were just laying on.The study found E. coli bacteria and concentrations of sewage on several beaches they studied, and flow-up studies on beaches across the country resulted in the same findings.After interviewing nearly 5,000 beachgoers, they found that people digging in the sand were more likely to suffer from gastrointestinal distress one day after going to the beach, than those people who kept their hands out of the sand.Does that mean you shouldn't dig in the sand when you're at the beach? Not at all. You can still build those epic sandcastles… just make sure to wash your hands right after you put the final flag in the tallest turret.And while rinsing may help to reduce the risk of developing an illness, the best way, according to the researchers, is a good scrubbing with soap and clean water.Can't find a restroom on the beach? Look for a portable restroom trailer. Our portable restroom trailers are stationed at many beaches across the country, and most feature hot water, which is even more effective at killing those illness-causing bacteria. Meaning you can spend more time on the beach, and less time in the hotel room, chugging Pepto.

Which is Dirtier: A Portable Restroom Trailer Toilet or Your Computer Keyboard?

If you think a restroom toilet seat, especially a portable restroom trailer toilet seat, is home to more harmful bacteria than your office computer keyboard, you'd be wrong. And it's enough to make you sick.According to HealthJockey.com, a series of tests conducted in London offices found that more than one in ten keyboards tested positive for E. coli and staphylococcus, the bacteria responsible for food poisoning. And the results were more than 150 times the acceptable limit for bacteria.Lead microbiologist, James Francis said, “Two keyboards examined under a microscope contained levels of bacteria so high they had to be removed from the office.” Adding, “One carried more bacteria than the average toilet seat and I've rarely come across anything as filthy in my 22-year career.”How does a keyboard become dirtier than a much-used office toilet seat? Easy: people eating lunch at their desks, not regularly cleaning their desks and equipment with cleaners (the study found nearly half the employees neglected this), and not following proper hygiene by washing their hands after using the restroom. This is the perfect recipe for bacteria development. And increases the chances for an employee to become ill.Restrooms, on the other hand, are cleaned regularly in most offices. And portable restroom trailers, like ours, are not only cleaned regularly, but some even come with a full-time attendant whose job it is to make sure they're sanitary at all times. Keeping the bacteria risk to a minimum. Which is more than we can say for your computer. Maybe offices should hire keyboard attendants.
