Many homeowners find it instrumental to invest in renting a portable toilet during the renovation process.

Most homeowners prefer to keep their home’s bathrooms private during renovations. Before starting it’s a good idea to arrange for a porta potty to be delivered for the workers to use. Homeowners do not want strangers to use their bathroom for privacy and security reasons along with cleanliness being a huge factor. Do your research on companies near you that offer portable facilities. The fees are usually reasonable, and weekly cleaning is included in the price.

The porta potty should be located far enough away from the home that odor does not become an issue. Make sure that you are considerate of any neighbors or any other facilities near you and put them a suitable distance from them. Porta potties should not be in the line of sight for any of your neighbors.

You should be aware that occasionally runners, delivery drivers or even a random person will see a porta potty and stop to use it. Vandalism could be an issue; you can prevent any of those things from happening. You may want to put a lock on the door of the porta potty after all of the workers leave for the day and unlock it the next time the workers return.
