Porta Potty Hygiene: Everything You Need to Know About Cleaning Portable Toilets

Porta Potty Hygiene: Everything You Need to Know About Cleaning Portable Toilets

Picture this.

We’ve all been there!

You’re at a parade, outdoor concert, festival, or State Fair and then….it happens.

That last spin on the Ferris Wheel paired with that extra-large lemonade you just drank is letting you know that you need to find a potty and fast! So you walk around frantically searching for one of those big portable plastic boxes when FINALLY you see one!

So, after walking all that way you notice the LONGGG line and wait patiently for your turn trying desperately not to do the potty dance before you get there and when you finally do, the potty is SO disgusting making a simple experience miserable and horrifying.

So, when renting a portable chemical toilet how can you make sure that this common experience of using a “porta-potty” is a pleasant one so that the customer is satisfied with the experience and not petrified at its un-cleanliness and odor.

We’re so glad you asked!

Here’s how you can make the experience better for everyone involved (including the clean up crew)!

Types of Portable Chemical Toilets

The cleanliness process begins by purchasing or renting the best type of portable toilet with your specific purpose in mind.

The most common type of portable toilet is the chemical toilet which uses strong-smelling chemicals to mask the odor and break down bacteria of the collected waste.

If you ever dissected anything in high school biology class then you were being exposed to the same chemicals used in portable bathrooms. Crazy right?

If you prefer not to use chemicals for your event then consider one of these alternatives. Types such as urine-diversion dehydration toilets, freezing toilets, incineration toilets, and composting toilets.

However, if your desire is to have a high-quality infrastructure and the cleanest possible facility the best option is to purchase or rent a portable toilet that can be hooked up to a functioning plumbing system.

These types of portable potties last longer than average chemically-based toilets and are as close as you can possibly get to having a comfortable indoor bathroom outside!

They are excellent options for camping or construction sites where the potty is needed for extended periods of time.

How to Clean a Portable Bathroom

Locations such as construction sites, camping sites, week-long festivals or fairs need a little extra care when it comes to portable bathroom cleanliness and there is an easy system you can follow in order to achieve this.

Wipe Down ALL Surfaces That Have Had Human Contact

Much like cleaning your own personal bathroom it is very important to wipe down all surfaces daily in the portable bathroom. Surfaces such as the soap dispenser, toilet seat door handles, and even floor hold bacteria from the number of people touching it.

Make sure to use a disinfectant like Clorox wipes, cleaning spray, or Lysol cleaner.

Replenish Toilet Paper and Hand Sanitizer or Soap

Replenishing materials daily is essential to making sure that your customers’ experience is a good one. If it is a large event make sure someone on your crew is responsible for keeping the bathroom stocked with toilet paper and soap. No one likes to use the restroom only to realize there is no toilet paper.

Disinfect Area With Fe-breeze Lysol Spray

Germs are very sticky and will hang around and multiply if not disinfected properly. It is extremely important for the safety of your customers to disinfect the area not only using wipes but also spraying germ killers into the air like Lysol.

Also, add chemicals to the toilet if possible.

How to Empty Your Portable Toilet

This point is mainly for those people who have bought a type of portable toilet for camping and it is theirs personally! If you are a person who camps quite often it can be very cost-effective to purchase a small personal portable toilet.

All cleaning points still apply but it’s important to follow protocols when owning your own personal portable chemical toilet.

First, it’s very important to know what type of toilet you have and how to properly operate it.

Have you ever accidentally pulled the latch on a household item like a vacuum cleaner or garbage disposal? Well, imagine if that was you and your family’s waste.


So to avoid any accidental spills practice pulling out the cassette and disassembling your toilet why it is empty. That way when it is filled with waste you’ll know exactly how to handle it!

Don’t be the guy who refuses to read the instruction manual because this time you’ll definitely regret it!

Second, search out the disposal sight before using your toilet! Most campgrounds have one but make sure you ask and see the sight first just to be on the safe side.

Third, empty your toilet and set it back up. It is very important to rinse out your toilet as well because simply dumping it out still leaves some germs behind and it very important to AVOID growing germs in your portable potty.

Messy Business With a Clean Result

Purchasing a portable chemical toilet and keeping it clean and sanitary may not be the most glamorous task to take on but it truly is worth it to make your event or gathering a success.

A clean portable bathroom suggests that your event is clean and classy and will avoid negative comments or press!

Imagine the great positive responses you would receive from simply have nice smelling portable bathrooms. Every positive comment helps when trying to make an event a success.

As stated above everyone has been in a position where they had to use a portable potty and looking back on it I can’t remember one that wasn’t absolutely filthy. However, you have the opportunity to stop this pattern!

The nastiness stops when you get serious and do your research, select the best potty for your event, and keep it clean.

Who would’ve thought that a portable chemical toilet could make such an impact?!

Happy toilet scrubbing…and disinfecting! Always remember to disinfect!

How Cool Are Container Restaurants? Why People are Setting up Shipping Container Restaurants

How Cool Are Container Restaurants? Why People are Setting up Shipping Container Restaurants

Recently, it’s seemed as though shipping containers are popping up everywhere and for every possible use. Some become storage units. Others take on new lives as houses and emergency shelters. They’re even used as swimming pools!

A shipping container restaurant is another example of this intriguing phenomenon.

Let’s find out some more! Here, we’ll look at what a shipping container is and what makes the idea of using one as a restaurant so appealing.

We’ll also explain how you get started with a shipping container restaurant as well as consider some examples of ones with innovative designs and demonstrated success.

The Appeal of Shipping Container Restaurants

A shipping container restaurant—also known as a storage container restaurant or cargo container restaurant—comes essentially already built. It has quite a sturdy structure too. Shipping containers can be refurbished and equipped for many different uses.

A shipping container restaurant, like any shipping container-based structure, has a hip industrial look that lends a certain cachet. It says “casual,” even if the food and service might be a little upscale.

The Basics of Shipping Containers

A lot of shipping containers have been built for intermodal shipping, meaning that they’re very sturdy and can transport goods without unloading from ships to trucks or trains, sometimes returning to different vessels.

Shipping containers were first constructed in the late 1960s. Manufacturers were held to tight standards by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). Among other things, an engineer had to be employed at every factory to inspect and certify each unit.

A certification plate was attached to every container that passed the inspection. Each ISO container has a unique ID number that’s painted on all sides. Shipping containers come in many different sizes, some standard, others custom-made.

Repurposing Shipping Containers

With the growing interest in repurposing as an environmentally use of otherwise discarded materials, old shipping containers have taken on new lives. Today, there are companies (like us)  that redesign old ISO shipping containers.

34,000,000 ISO shipping containers currently are in use throughout the world. When they’re no longer used for shipping, they can be fitted with windows, plumbing, insulation, HVAC systems, and other business and living features. Some container structures are temporary, others permanent.

Starting a Shipping Container Restaurant

So, how does someone go about starting a restaurant that’s housed in a former shipping container? As with any business start-up, it needs a business plan. The following items could be incorporated into such a plan.

Purchasing the Container

First, you need the container.

You can buy a 20-foot used shipping container for less than $3,000. That might work for a small food stand, cafe, or bar (not counting the costs of refurbishing). A full-blown restaurant really needs a larger space, though.

A 40-foot container  would have room for a small kitchen, restrooms, and seating area. It would be a tight fit even at that. If this isn’t big enough for your project, consider placing two or more containers together.

Planning a Good Basic Menu

You’ll need a sample menu in your plan. Because of the limited space you’ll have and probably a limited budget as well, you should start with a smaller menu.

Feature a few basics (for picky eaters) along with some amazing signature items that will draw customers and make them want to come back.

Marketing the Restaurant

And speaking of signature items, a good business plan needs a marketing plan. Luckily, unless you’re already in an area that’s edgy and hip, a container restaurant is such a novelty that people might come just out of curiosity.

When they come, don’t let them down! You might want to exploit the shipping container theme in your marketing—at least as long as you don’t have a lot of competition in your restaurant’s location.

A Timely Idea?

What about offering branded “containment lunches and dinners” during the current social distancing period? This lighthearted theme could help lift people’s spirits as well as get you some repeat business.

Maybe promote it with photos of busy employees wearing masks and gloves?

Container Restaurants: Possibilities and Trends

Shipping container restaurants have caught on to the extent that they’re able to innovate. Some are even piggybacking on other positive social trends.

Of course, restoring and reusing heavy metal containers after years of wear and exposure to the elements (including saltwater) has been a primary inspiration behind container restaurants and other inexpensive building projects.

However, this trend has spread its tentacles in other directions as well. Here are a few examples.

Green Energy Use

One example is Montréal’s bright red MuvBox restaurant that uses solar panels for energy. Just think: If a restaurant in this very cool city—which also gets very cold in winter—what are the other possibilities for solar power?

Architectural Innovation

It shouldn’t be surprising that architects have discovered the possibilities of shipping containers. For example, India’s RJDL architecture firm has found a niche in redesigning shipping containers.

Among its commissioned projects is a multi-purpose “recreational space” (including a cafe) for a dental college in Noida called Cafe Infinity.

Augmenting the Original Design

London’s Movement Café (MVMT Café) was a pop-up restaurant and performance space located in historic Greenwich Park during the early 2010s. The project was the brainchild of British designer and artist Morag Myerscough.

Adding Space

Side-by-side containers have become a fairly common sight, whether they’re for individual restaurants needing more space of restaurant marketplaces in high-tourism areas, near universities, or in other high-traffic places.

Consider the high-rise Subway restaurant located at New York City’s One World Trade Center (Freedom Tower). During the new skyscraper’s construction, this Subway met workers’ food needs by growing along with the tower.

Over time, multiple containers were stacked, matching the tower’s growth, up to a point, and serving workers. During the construction, as the new building rose, new containers were built to serve those working at different levels.

A Trend Not Yet Fully Contained?

You can see that there’s been a lot of innovation in the shipping container restaurant movement over the last decade or so. This movement has a bright future too. After all, it’s grounded in the principles of a sustainable economy.

If you want to get your feet wet with restaurant entrepreneurship, why not begin with shipping container restaurants—or maybe shipping container cafes or shipping container coffee shops at first?

We can help you with that. Check out examples of our custom-built container-type structures and see what you think. Then, get in touch with us for more information and ideas.

Container Homes: An Evolution from Tiny Homes to State-Of-The-Art Permanent Builds

Container Homes: An Evolution from Tiny Homes to State-Of-The-Art Permanent Builds

You can rent or invest in property without breaking the bank by taking a closer look at container homes. 

In relatively recent years, a growing number of people, entrepreneurs and developers have turned to using shipping containers as an inexpensive way to build the framework of homes. Around the world, the practice is becoming more popular. 

Now, there’s increased interest in learning how to use shipping containers in place of traditional structural framework. Even professional home builders are interested in shipping containers because they’re durable, flexible and cost-effective. Resultantly, they’ve built some of the best shipping container homes in the world. 

Before You Draw Up Your Shipping Container Home Design Plans 

When used for shipping, a container may last about 20 years. You can acquire a used shipping container for as little as $1,500 or less. 

A brand-new container may set you back $10,000. Still, that’s much less than the cost to build out a house from the ground up. 

Although shipping containers are relatively inexpensive, you must still transport them to your construction site. Even then, the cost benefits of shipping containers make them a much more affordable alternative compared to traditional construction practices. 

Before you begin drawing up your shipping container home plans, you must speak with local officials to make sure it’s legal to use them for construction. You must also learn about local building codes in your area.

 The average shipping container’s 20 to 40 feet long, and some are a little longer. A trip to your local seaport will yield containers of varying sizes. 

At a shipping yard, you may find containers stacked as many as 10 units high. Typically, you’ll have no problems finding containers for your project. 

What may prove more elusive is coming up with an aesthetically pleasing shipping container design. In this regard, it’s a good idea to hire a professional. 

An architect can help you create a beautiful shipping container home design. More importantly, however, they can make sure that your shipping container home design complies with local zoning laws and regulations. They’ll also help you to avoid common construction problems. 

A Few of the Best Shipping Container Homes in the World 

The cost of building the average home has risen to nearly $300,000. Alternatively, you can secure a used shipping container for anywhere from $1,500 to $5,000. Some small containers even go for as low as $800. 

Often, shipping containers go up for sale because companies have used them to move goods, but they’re too expensive to ship back to their origin point. The use of shipping containers for construction is a sustainable practice. Instead of shipping an empty container or melting it down for scrap, it’s much more beneficial to repurpose an unwanted container as a home. 

Shipping containers are extremely durable. They can maintain the integrity of a home in some of the most intense climates in the world. 

Manufacturers design shipping containers to stand up to the tough demands of getting moved around by commercial cranes. Because of their design, they stack easily, enabling developers to create innovative home structures. 

An unforgiving economy, a growing population and increasing pollution had many people looking for a better way of life. Because of the high cost of building a home, people are looking for more affordable construction alternatives. 

Shipping containers are the latest solution that may help many achieve the goal of affordable living. They’re small, inexpensive and environmentally friendly.

Look here to see some of the best houses made out of shipping containers in the world. 

Positive Benefits of Container Homes 

Shipping container homes are also becoming extremely popular among people who want to get off the grid. They transform environmentally friendly containers into beautiful homes. Best of all, a shipping container home costs even less to build than a tiny house

Once you step inside a shipping container home, you can’t tell the difference between it and a house built using traditional construction methods. Container homes are a viable green living alternative. If you care about the environment and you want to decrease your carbon footprint, a container home is a great way to do it. 

A shipping container home is awesome if you’re into green living. It helps you to care for the environment and do less harm to the land. 

They also help you do less damage to your bank account. There are many available shipping containers at seaports around the world. Because of this, they’re available at a relatively nominal cost. 

By using a shipping container to build the frame of your home, you can reduce building costs greatly. If you budget correctly, you can even live mortgage-free. 

Shipping Container Apartments for Sustainable Income 

A growing number of legislators and housing advocates are talking about shipping containers as a viable option to traditional home construction. If you’re an investor, you can use shipping containers to expand your development portfolio quickly and cost-effectively. 

Shipping container homes appreciate just like any other home. However, it costs much less to construct one. 

Even though shipping container homes are made with square metal boxes, the finished product is visually appealing. They also help affordable housing developers to stretch tight budgets and turn a profit. Shipping containers are also great for building sustainable office spaces.

Why Are Prefabricated Structures Becoming More Popular?

Why Are Prefabricated Structures Becoming More Popular?

The prefabricated construction sector is gaining immense growth. Within the next six years, the modular construction market will reach $107.21 billion

Prefabrication refers to assembling different components of a structure in a manufacturing site. 

Prefabrication has significant differences to conventional buildings. The prefabrication structures are ideal for modern construction. From cost-effectiveness to environmental friendliness, prefabrication structures have unbeatable benefits.  

Are you wondering why prefabrication construction has gained momentum in recent years? Keep reading to know some of the reasons prefabricated materials are becoming popular. 

1. Environmental Friendliness 

With modular construction, waste is almost zero. On the contrary, traditional construction leads to a significant waste of materials. The result is a landfill of debris, which has negative implications on the environment.

Prefabricated construction assembly occurs within a factory. The manufacturers recycle excess materials, which reduces waste. The controlled factory environment also allows the creation of accurate parts. 

These structures offer effective insulation that enhances energy efficiency. As such, building with the prefabricated materials reduces energy wastage. The eco-friendliness of prefabricated buildings is the leading reason for their popularity. 

2. Reduced Construction Time

You can’t compare the time used to construct a prefabricated building and a typical conventional house. Prefabricated structures take a shorter time as they are often ready for connecting. Getting them to the construction site means that you’re already halfway done. 

Prefabrication structures allow a construction project despite lousy weather. You don’t need to halt a project halfway with fear of materials’ spoilage. You’ll notice that you will spend almost half of the time often spent in general construction.

With prefabrication, there’s better upfront planning and reduced delays in subcontractor scheduling. The shorter construction time allows companies to tackle different projects. That means more business for construction firms. 

3. Prefabrication Structures Encourage Savings 

Prefabricated construction materials are inexpensive. Despite being in pre-made designs, they are cheaper than actual raw materials. The mass production of ready-made materials gives you discounts on the total cost.  

Material suppliers often give bulk discounts to prefabrication manufacturers. These deals trickle down to the customer. As a result, the cost of prefabricated construction is quite affordable.

Besides, this approach reduces the possibility of working with unreliable contractors. What’s more, the reduced construction time saves on the financing cost. The more days a contractor spends, the more costly the project will be.  

The reduced transportation needs lower costs. You can opt for this approach to save some dollars. You will get a final quality product and still save.

4. Quality and Durability

The creation of prefabricated structures in a manufacturing environment ensures quality. Manufacturers of these materials follow specific industry standards to promote excellence.

Ostensibly, site-built structures can have varying quality levels. Independent contractors have different skills and commitment. As such, the quality of products is not often a guarantee. 

Prefabrication companies work with an experienced crew within a weather-resistant factory. The quality checks during the process enhance the quality of the materials produced. The fabricators also use precise equipment to improve the standards for the material.

With prefabricated structures, you will enjoy extra durability. You don’t have to worry about breaking pieces during transportation. The factory ensures that each piece has the utmost stability.

5. Construction in All Locations 

Building in remote locations is dreadful. Bringing multiple trucks of materials through bumpy roads can be expensive. You might spend half of your construction budget transporting materials to the site. 

Prefabricated structures reduce the list of transported raw materials by a higher margin. With fewer items, the process is less costly and overwhelming. A few trucks are enough to carry the prefabricated materials.

So, there will be less noise and pollutants common in most building sites. If you are facing logistical concerns due to the construction site location, prefabrication is a great solution. You can have your building in any place.  

6. Safety

A recent report by ILO confirmed that India ranks highest in construction workers’ accidents. About 165 out of 1000 employees get injuries on the job. The construction industry exposes workers to a range of occupational hazards.

The potential risks in construction are evident from the point of material transportation. The creation of sub-assemblies in a factory reduces some of the possible hazards. There are fewer accident risks as the contractors deal with already assembled materials.

On-the-job injuries are fewer with prefabricated materials. The reduction in machinery operation reduces the number of accidents. The decreased labor hours in a construction site are attributable to fewer accidents.

Traditional construction exposes workers as they deal with the assemblies from scratch. In comparison, prefabrication is safer. Working in a controlled factory environment has made the process less risky.

7. Improved Flexibility 

Modular construction enhances design flexibility, which increases the number of options. You can opt for a prefabricated combination that drives the outcome you desire. The prefabricated designs can give you more space as you want or even achieve a specific aesthetic purpose.

During your construction planning, including prefabrication, gives you significant control of your project. You will find the ready-to-fit blocks flexible enough. A pile of raw materials might require professionals to design it the way you want.

Manufacturers recycle materials that are not in use into useful products. This opportunity wouldn’t be possible if you’re purchasing raw materials and making them from scratch. 

Prefabrication Structures Have Significant Impacts on the Construction Industry

Prefabricated construction technology can only continue to grow in popularity. Choosing prefabrication structures is like selecting a cost-effective and high-quality construction.

If you’re thinking of constructing a residential or commercial building, prefabrication is the best deal. It boasts of efficiency and versatility and the outcome will be worth the investment. 

Ensure that you work with a company that will assure you of quality materials. The last thing you need is to invest in products that aren’t durable enough. The construction ought to serve you for years.

Why You Need to Consider a Container Office

Why You Need to Consider a Container Office

In India, the construction industry was expected to grow by 5.6% from 2016 to 2020. It’s also projected to become the third-largest construction market in the world by 2025.

As you can see, the country is rapidly growing, and as a result, you need to come up with innovative ways to accommodate business needs.

For example, you may be running out of office space in your small property. For that, you can turn to a container office as a solution.

Are you intrigued? Then keep reading. Here are all the reasons why you need to get a container office.

They’re Easy to Set Up

When you’re on a tight schedule, every minute counts. You don’t have the time to deal with complicated site prep and set up for an office, nor do you have the time or resources to construct a new one.

A container office takes very little time to set up, which means you can make every minute count for your project. The most you’ll have to do is put down some cinder blocks so the office can be both stabilized and leveled. This shouldn’t take very long at all to do.

You Can Put Them Almost Anywhere

With other types of portable offices, there may be restrictions as to where you can put them. When you’re out on a remote worksite, this may cause issues. You need a workable office nearby, after all.

Container offices can be put in practically any space, so long as they fit. The land just has to be level and not prone to flooding. In any case, you can always rectify the situation by using cinder blocks, as we mentioned in the above section.

They’re Very Mobile

Do you run a company that has multiple projects and you’re always on the move? Then a container office can be ideal.

Because the shipping container was originally made to be quite mobile, this means that if you need to move it around for your projects, it won’t be a problem. All you need to do is load it onto a truck, transport it, and then unload it at your next destination.

No matter where you go, your mobile container office can come with you. And once you’re done with your projects and don’t need the container office for a while, you can always put it away in storage.

They’re Affordable

Considering the labor and materials you’d need to construct a new office, this may be completely out of your budget. But what if you need to have an office?

Then container offices are your solution. Not only are they very affordable, but they’ll also go wherever you want them to go. So you can place them in convenient locations and cut down on your travel expenses.

You Get More Space

Whether you’re using it for your business or home, a container office can be a great way to get some extra space when you’re running out on your original property.

As a new business owner or homeowner, your finances may be tight. But as time goes on, you may find that you have growing pains, and your space is just not enough. However, you don’t have the money to make a move just yet.

While you’re in this stage, a container office can be a great way to expand without having to completely move out of your property. In addition, it looks much more professional than just setting up a temporary tent outside.

They’re Very Durable

Shipping containers were constructed to transport items in a secure and safe fashion. This means the same reliability and durability can be expected when you use them as an office.

If you’re planning on working on a site where weather conditions aren’t so great, then container offices are excellent for this purpose. Other temporary offices may not be as reliable, which can lead to lost time.

Because of their construction, they can also be very secure against theft or vandalism. If you’re concerned about crime in your area, then you can also consider installing security cameras or alarm systems. The container office should already come with a high-quality lock, so you won’t have to worry about people easily breaking in.

They’re Comfortable

Being inside a container office means you’re shielded from the elements. They’re also naturally quite insulated.

Not only that, but also, they can be equipped with a quality HVAC system. So if you ever need to get a break from the outdoors, you can always rest easy inside a container office.

It’s Eco-Friendly

Currently, there are over 17 million shipping containers in the world. And out of that number, only around 5 million are actually active. This means 12 million shipping containers are sitting around, not being utilized.

In a world where we’re running out of finite resources, it’s always a great idea to repurpose inactive items so they get a new life. Plus, it can save you some money.

This is why it’s beneficial for you to choose a container office over new construction. Not only do you reap the benefits from above, but you also get to do your part in looking after the planet. By choosing a container office, you’ll recycle something that’s old and save some money in the process.

Get a Container Office for Your Company

Getting a container office for your business can be a wonderful solution, whether you use it in the short or long term. These are very cost-efficient and can provide you with the extra room you need to run your company.

Plus, it makes use of something that would otherwise be discarded, so it’s a great way to be eco-friendly as well. So take advantage of this win-win situation and get this great addition for your business.
