We get it; restrooms and porta-potties aren’t the loveliest things in the world, and that is exactly why it is important to keep these portable waste outlets clean. You’re probably wondering how people go about cleaning a porta-potty, especially because it is tight in space and a bit difficult to move around comfortably. Let’s go over the steps one would take in cleaning and going over a porta-potty.
Rid of the Waste
The disposal of the waste from the porta potty is the first step that commences the cleaning process. A small vacuum is inserted in the waste bowl which then sucks the bowl dry. The collected waste is transported in sanitation trucks to a near-by waste facility where it is properly treated and handled.
Sanitizing the Unit
Approximately five gallons of a blue cleansing additive is placed into the waste bowl after it has been dried by the vacuum. The additive is intended to control the odor and disinfect the bowl. This additive is also used to indicate how much the porta-potty is being used, which is important to consider so that cleaners can know how much cleaning attention the porta-potty may need. Once this additive turns into a green tint, this calls for another cleaning.
Scrubbing the Interior
The sanitization of the walls is just as important as the clean state of the bowl. Not only are the walls cleaned, but the major points of contact, therefore a good amount of detail cleaning takes place. By scrubbing the walls, floors, and toilet seats, you rid of a grand amount of germs and bacteria.
No one enjoys going to a porta-potty only to find there is no toilet paper or soap to use. After having properly washed the porta-potty, one must place an abundance of toilet paper and soap to use, so that no one runs into the problem of not being able to clean themselves.
