Does the thought of germs or a virus in public restrooms and portable toilets make you cringe? You probably spend as little time as possible in public toilets. On the occasion that you have to go, you are probably flushing with your foot, avoiding contact with the toilet seat, handwashing for 20 seconds, and carefully using a paper towel to open doors. That is ok to strive for the most sanitary environment. Though for many, the anxiety overcoming into contact with bathroom bugs is a genuine concern.
It is no secret that there is a huge cocktail of germs and viruses lurking on the surfaces in public restrooms. The most common germs that are found are streptococcus, staphylococcus, E. coli, hepatitis A, and various STDs. The most important virus that we are taking precautions, for now, is COVID-19 or commonly called the coronavirus.
The good news is that the toilet seat is not a common area of transmitting infectious diseases to humans. Many disease-causing organisms are only able to survive a limited time on the surface and due to your body’s incredible immune system and protective barrier, the chance of acquiring a disease from contact with the surface is unlikely when you are following advised hygiene and sanitary precautions.
To assist in preventing the spread of viruses and germs, the CDC guidelines for handwashing is essential to follow. We all know that washing your hands after touching a surface is not always possible, so please use hand sanitizers. Potty Girl offers portable sinks, porta potties, hand sanitizers, and air-conditioned restroom trailers with flushing toilets and sinks to take care of your hygiene needs.
If you are still a little uneasy about the germs that may be lurking on the seat, rest assured that Potty Girl’s team is there to give you some peace of mind. The friendly and thorough staff at Potty Girl frequently services and cleans their porta potty rentals and restroom trailers with high-grade disinfectants and cleaners before your delivery and throughout the duration of your event.
We want to assure you that Potty Girl’s restroom trailers and portable toilet rentals are always sanitized and "cleaner than clean".
