House Fire? Weather Damage? Why Renting Portable Toilets in an Emergency is Important

As a homeowner or business owner, you’re sure to purchase insurance covering a fire, flood or some other natural disaster that could damage your property. But while many people rest comfortably knowing that their home is covered in the event of an emergency, there is a bevy of other logistics that need to be considered if a catastrophe were to happen.

For instance, can you remain in the home or do you have to look for temporary lodging while restoration takes place? If you can remain in the home, which areas are accessible and which aren’t? Will you even have running water in the home?

The disaster restoration industry has advanced to a point where water extraction and drying from weather damage can be accomplished in a matter of days. And while house fire restoration can be a bit more extensive, in either scenario it will take time before a home and its occupants’ lifestyle is back to normal after an emergency.

What Will You Do?

When disaster strikes, it’s easy to take even the most seemingly simple things for granted. Things like bathrooms. In most homes, a bathroom isn’t just a place for people to do their business, but a place to get ready in the morning, shower, even relax in the bath after a long day. And in the event of a home disaster, these comfort zones can be temporarily taken away.

Luckily, there’s an easy solution to this dilemma: a portable restroom. While porta potties and portable restrooms may be most synonymous with the likes of construction sites and outdoor events, they can also come in extremely handy when you’re left high and dry. (They’re also convenient for the restoration crews that will be repairing your home in the days following the disaster.)

The features of a portable restroom demonstrate why they can be a great asset to a home or business that’s on the mend:

  • Executive Restroom Trailer Rental from gotügo in Maryland, DC, VirginiaVariety: If you’re looking for a place to just go to the bathroom, a standard porta potty should suffice. But there’s more than just small porta potties that are offered by gotügo. Restroom trailers can also be ordered, which offer more space, lighting and creature comforts.
  • Cleanliness: When a home disaster occurs, safety is usually a chief concern. Not only might there be structural damage, there may also be bacteria in standing water, which means mold growth may set in. Occupants won’t have to worry about health concerns with porta potties, as units come clean and ready for use.
  • Convenience: After a home disaster, filing an insurance claim and having the appropriate restoration work carried out can take time. Porta potties are one thing that you won’t have to wait on. As soon as they’re ordered, they are promptly delivered to the site for immediate use. You can arrange to have them regularly emptied for longer rentals.
  • Affordability: Finally, porta potties are inexpensive and typically can be ordered for daily, weekly and monthly rental periods.

Simply put, when disaster strikes you’ll have more important things to worry about than where you’re going to go to the bathroom. Ordering porta potties or portable restrooms is easy, convenient and affordable. It’s one less thing to have to worry about, allowing you to focus on more important things, like getting your home or business back in order.
